Children of Mahala and Newell:

Narrative

     Mahala was also known as Mahala Sourbeer.

     Researchers have placed Mahala as a daughter of T. S. Sourbeer. However, careful reading of the will of Frederick Leonard (father of Mahala's mother) leads me to believe that she may have been a bastard child of Elizabeth the same as Frederick B. Leonard. Frederick's will states "I do also give and bequeath to my grand daughter Mahaly Wickens formerly Mahaly Leonard…" All other of his grandchildren who are children of his daughter Elizabeth Sourbeer are referenced with the surname Sourbeer. However, she seems to have assumed the surname of Sourbeer, perhaps was adopted by Elizabeth's Sourbeer husband.

Children of Simon and Elizabeth:

Children of Simon and Eve:

Narrative

     Reliable family tradition indicates that Simon was born in Prussia, which is a coastal region on the southeast of the Baltic Sea on the Elbe River in northern Germany. Hans Jacob Haar (Hans is the diminutive for Johannes which in English is John) is among those listed as arriving on the ship Chesterfield, Thomas Coatam, Master, from Rotterdam, last from Cowes, on Sept. 2, 1749.7

     Germans most commonly gave their male children the first name of the given names of their grandfather as their first names and it was common for all male children children in a family to have the same first name. Generally then they went by their second give name to differentiat their identities.1 This practice can be seen the naming of the male children of Simon's son, John, all who have the first given name of John. This would indicate that the first name of their grandfather, Simon or Hans Jacob, was John (Hans). This, plus other evidence, leads to the belief that Hans Jacob Haar and Simon Harr are one and the same.

Hans Jacob Harr vs Simon Harr

     It is believed that Simon Harr and Henry M. Muhlenburg and his son, Peter knew each other in Pennsylvania before 1757 through work in the Lutheran Church, and that, at the direction of Henry Muhlenburg, Simon came to St. Paul's Lutheran Church in 1757 as an emmissary of the Lutheran Church. He arrived in the area of Winchester-Strasburg between 1755 and 1757.

     On Nov. 1, 1757, at Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia, Jacob Harr, bought from Phillip Rameath essential items for living and furnishing a dwelling including a large Dutch Bible, spinning wheel, carpenter tools, wagon, horses, cows, and farm equipment. No other record of a Jacob Harr has been found in records searched.8 In 1797, similar items are included in the appraisal of the estate of Simon Harr who died intestate.9 This further supports the belief that Hans Jacob and Simon Harr are the same person. He may have taken the name Simon or was given it by his wife and/or others. Simon was the name of an apostle of Christ. "Simony" means the buying and selling of spiritual things such as sacraments. Also, the English, who ruled the colonies until 1776, wanted first names for records purposes and Hans Jacob may have changed his name to Simon to distinguish between him and his son John.1 It is not unusal for an individual deeply involved in religious work to adopt an bibical name.

Simon Harr, schoolmaster and the Lutheran Church

     Records indicate that he was in constant touch, by letters, with Henry M. Muhlenburg, and that, when Peter Muhlenburg, son of Henry came to the area in 1772 to minister to the church in Woodstock, Winchester, and other churches, Peter and Simon were close friends.10

     H. M. Muhlenburg came to Pennsylvania in 1742 and formed the Lutheran ministerium which shortly embraced the territory of what is now all of the states between Maine and Georgia. Many of those Lutherans who settled Frederick and Shenandoah Counties, Virginia from 1742 forward were from his congregations at New Hanover and Trappe, Pennsylvania, and he was particulary concerned about the churches in Virginia as evidenced by the fact that he sent his son, Peter, to serve in the churches in Frederick and Shenandoah Counties, Virginia. As documented in Mueller history, Peter Muhlenburg left the ministry during the Revolutionary War to become the General of the Eighth Virginia Regiment of the Continental Army.1

     For years Simon was a worthy schoolmaster in Strasburg, Virginia, in a school maintained by St. Paul's Lutheran Church. During that time Moravian and other sectarians chiselled away at the congregation and Simon Harr was lured from his Lutheran moorings. However, the excess of emotion that characterized uninhabited wilderness Christianity soon caused him to return to the faith from which he had strayed. In 1793 he began a correspondance with H. M. Muhlenberg which lasted more than twenty years from whom he sought guidance and help in ministering to his fellow church members. When Peter Muhlenberg came to Woodstock, he and Simon Harr became good friends. There is no evidence that Simon was ever license or ordained by the Ministerium. He was content to serve and his standing was recognized in the community by his appointment by the county court to perform marriages. Records indicated he performed 369 marriages from 1781 to 1796, and referred to him as "Reverend" Simon Harr.11

     Beginning with the arrival of Simon Harr ca. 1755, and the establishment of the Town of Strasburg in 1761, services at St. Paul's Lutheran Church were held on a more regular basis. Simon, an intimate friend of Peter Muhlenberg during his Shenandoah ministry, served as the first school master. Harr's presence in the community until his death in 1796 is unquetionably responsible for preserving solely Lutheran traditions and restraining the encroachments of ministerial vagabonds.12

     Simon Harr began teaching at Strasburg in 1763 and ended his career in 1796. His services was not continuous throughout those years. Heinrich Simund took his place in 1778 althought his length of stay is not known. Herr Hachmann succeeded Harr in 1796. The Strasburg German School continued in operation utnil about 1832. The property was sold in 1842.13 There is a bronze plaque at the front of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Strasburg, Shenendoah County, Virginia which states that "this church was established in 1747 by German settlers, that the congregation's first school was conducted by Simon Harr beginning in 1778 until 1815."14 However, the 1815 date has to be incorrect as Simon Harr died in 1796.

     The parish of the Lutheran Church covered Winchester, Newtown (Stephens City), Steinkirche (Stone Chapel, Clarke County), and Stovertown (Strasburg). Winchester had four services a month, Steinkirche and Newtown two services, and Stovertown one service. Stovertown had the services of Simon Harr, schoolmaster and catechist, who likewise conducted worship.15

     The Journal of H. M. Muhlenburg contains the following concerning Simon Harr: Wednesday, December 3, 1783; "I received a letter from a schoolmaster who lives two hundred and fifty miles away in Virginia. Many years ago he was awaken through devotional writings and led upon the way to life through God's Word and Spirit. But when a fanatical sect arose in that locality he permitted himself in good faith to be snatched away with the chaff. By God's mercy, however, he recovered. His letter as follows." The contents of the letter from Simon Harr, dated Strasburg, Virginia, November 14, 1783, was omitted from the journal.16

Revolutionary War

     According to tradition, Simon Harr joined the forces commanded by General Peter Muhlenburg, and served as a clerk which was the equivalent of chaplain. This likely explains Simon's presence in Winchester in 1778 and 1779. Additionally, he may have been in Winchester performing church restoral work. The Lutheran church in Winchester was severly damaged by military actions during the Revolutionary War. However, the record shows that Simon Harr returned to his church duties in Strasburg after his military stint.1 Brumbaugh's Revolutionary War Records shows Simon Harr as a clerk in Alexander Machir's company of Strasburg, Virginia.17 His military service is of record in the archives department of the Virginia State Library, Richmond, Virginia, national number 282828.

     St. Paul's Lutheran Church was destroyed by federal troops during the Civil War and was partially restored in 1867, with complete restoration by 1897 through redesigning and additions.

Simon Harr and Fraktur Penmanship

     The following information has been extracted from Virginia Fraktur Penmanship as Folk Art by Klaus Wust.18

     The term Fraktur originated about 1900 in Pennsylvania and has been accepted by most folk art writers to include all forms of Germanic illuminated writings. The orginal Latin word and fractura and the English derivative fracture means break. The German Fraktur was used to designate German or Gothic type of letters. In early writing schools of colonial German settlers fraktur referred to the large initials often so prominent on manuscripts. The following definition of fraktur was given by Dr. Don Yoder: "As an art from, fraktur is graphic art, two-thirds calligraphy and one-third drawn symbol. The combination of calligraphic text, abstract borders, and primitive, makes up a total which is more than the sum of its parts…" The art form was used to decorate birth, baptismal, and marriage certificates as well as other memorial certificates.

     Fraktur in Virginia was the perpetuation of this are as practiced in Southwest Germany, Alsace, and Switzerland and continued in the older settlements of eastern Pennsylvania. The local school masters, an occasional pastor, and scriveners of the church records were users as well as simple farmers who would venture to do his own fraktur as he had learned in the German country school. As German settlements grew in colonial America, simple country schools were organized. Besides the three proverbial R's German instruction in the Shenandoah Valley and in settlements in the Piedmont and the Southwest stressed writing, both a good hand in cursive script (Schönschrift) and depending on the talents of the teacher, decorative lettering (Zierschrift). Although no schools in Virginia, however, obtained the high standards of Pennsylvanian ornamental calligraphy as practiced by the Sabbatarians at Ephrata, the Memmonite writing schools aroun Lancaster of the Schwenkfelders of Montgomery County, the products of some schools are fascinating examples of an art whiched common people shared. The schools were usually attached to Lutheran and Reformed congregations and conducted by a hired schoolmaster under the supervision of a pastor. The teaching of fraktur writing and artwork depended naturally on the ability of inclination of the schoolmaster.

     One such schoolmaster was Simon Harr. Outstanding are examples of fraktur created by the boys and girls in Simon Harr's school in Strasburg. He came to the Shenandoah about 1755 and organized his German school in conjunction with the local Luteran congregation. By 1761, however, he had abandoned family and church to join the celibate Sabbatarians on Sandy Hook, adjacent to Strasburg. From Simon's correspondence with Lutheran leader Henry Malchior it is known that "by God's mercy, he recovered" and by 1763, had returned to the Lutheran fold. As schoolmaster Simon enjoyed great respect in the beyond his own community and from 1781 until his death in 1796, he occupied a semi-ministerial prosition among the Lutherans of Shenandoah County.

Frederick and Shenadoah Counties, Virginia, records referencing Simon Harr

     Simon Harr along with Jonas Lortz/Lotz witnessed a lease between Christian Bumgartner and Jacob Taylor in Frederick County, Virginia on 1 June 1767.19

     On 11 August 1769, Simon along with Henry Piper and Barbara Dellinger witnessed a deed transaction between Mathias Funk and George Keller in Frederick County.20

     The records of St. Paul's Lutheran Church show that in March 1770 Simon Harr and his wife Elizabeth were named God Parents of Catherine Schmitt, daughter of Valentine and Maria Schmitt, when Catherine was baptized. All of the church records were written in German script until 1830 and Strasburg, where the church was established and continues today, was first named Staufferstadt.1,21

     On 7 May 1771, Simon Harr along with Jacob Stover witnessed a mortgage between John Funk and Peter Stover in Frederick County.22 On 22 July of that same year, also in Frederick County, Simon along with Leonard Batlhias witnessed a lease between John Yoho and Alexander Machir.23

     A deed between Jacob Bowman and Martin Roler was witnessed by a Simon Karr [sic] on 1 September 1772, in Shenandoah County.24

     In 1774 there are two entries for the marriage of Simon Harr; one on 5 July to Eve Brouzler and one on 2 July to Eve Printzler. These are obviously the same individual with the latter being the correct name. Other records prove that Eve was the widow of Frederick Printzler and that her maiden name was Beard (Bare). The recording of Brouzler is probably a transciption error in trying to read the name Printzler.25

     On 15 November 1777, there is a lease, along with a release on 17 November, between John Lemly and Catherine, his wife, of Frederick County to Simon Harr of the same place for total consideration of 50 pounds, five shillings, a lot of land in the addition to the town of Winchester laid off by James Wood, Gent., deceased, and joining a lot belonging to John Greenfield, Gent., deceased, and opposite Patrick Kirk, known as lot no. (unreadable, later transaction indicates that it was lot no. 7), containing nineteen thousand seven hundred and forty square feet or there abouts, the said lot having been conveyed by Mrs. Mary Wood, Executrix of the aforesaid James Wood, Gent., deceased, to John Lemly by deeds of lease and release the 16th and 17th of June 1769. It was signed by John Lemly and witnessed by two individuals who signed in German and by Thomas Wood.26

     On 22 and 23 September 1778, there is a lease and release between Mathias Hite and his wife Sarah, County of Shenandoah, to Simon Harr, County of Frederick, for total consideration of 260 pounds, five shillings, certain lots or parcels of land in the town of Strasburg known as lots no. 17, 18, 19, and 20.27

     Simon Harr along with Thomas Wood and Michael Aldred witnessed a lease and release between Mary Wood, Executix of James Wood, Gent., deceased, and James Gamul Dowdall on 16 July 1778.28 Also on 16 July and 17 July there is a lease and release between Mary Wood and Simon Harr of Frederick County for total consideration of 100 pounds five shillings, lots 8 and 9 in the addition to the town of Winchester, each lot containing 19,740 square feet, being the same laid of by said James Wood, deceased, in 1758, and being part of the land granted to said James Wood by deed from the Proprietor of Northern Neck and by him devised by his last will and testament to said Mary Wood. It was signed by Mary Wood and witnessed by Thomas Wood, Michael Alred, and Robert Wood.29

     On 3 August 1779, there is a transaction between Simon Harr and wife Eve of Shenandoah County and Adolph Stroval of the town of Winchester in Frederick County, in consideration of 300 pounds, for a certain lot of land in the addition made to the town of Winchester by James Wood, Gent., deceased, known by No. 7 and joining the lot of John Greenfield, deceased, and opposite Patrick Kirk. This is the lot purchased from John Lemly on the 16th and 17th of November 1777. It was signed by Simon Harr and Ever Harr, with no witnesses given.30

     On 8 June 1780, there is a deed transaction recorded between Frederick Segchrist and Simon Harr; whereas Frederick Printzler, deceased of the County of Shenandoah deceased intestate leaving no will and no other issues but one female child who also died intestate being about three years old … whereas by the death of said Frederick Printzler the said estate descended to his next heir … whereas said Frederick Segchrist of the age of twenty one years now personally receive and claimed my said estate so descended to me and in trust of Simon Harr who since intermarried with Eve Harr widow and relick of the said Frederick Printzler deceased … that I have received from said Simon Harr several lots of land … three in lots and two out lots. Signed by Frederick Segchrist, and witnessed by Alexander Hite and Jacob Yost.31 The sister of Frederick Printzler, Maria Elizabeth, married Henry Sechrist. Frederick is probably their son and since there were no other heirs to Frederick Printzler, he inherited Frederick's estate when he came of age, the estate being held in trust by Simon Harr who married Frederick Printzler's widow, Eve. The will of Zacharias Beard (Bare) names daughter Eve, wife of Simon Harr and mentions her son David Harr establishing that Eve's maiden name was Beard (Bare).32

     On the 8th and 9th of June 1780, there is a lease and release between Frederick Sigchrist of County of Frederick and Simon Harr of County of Shenandoah, in total consideration of 50 pounds, five shillings two out lots of five acres each in the the town of Strasburg, the said lots having been granted from Peter Stover to Jacob Faggott by deeds recorded in Frederick County and said Jacob Faggott to Frederick Princelar deceased by deeds of lease and release, and by the death of said Frederick Princelar said lots descended to said Frederick Sigchrist being heir. Signed by Frederick Sigchrist and witnessed by Alexander Hite and Jacob Yost.33 In August 1780, the deeds of lease and release from Frederick Seechrist to Simon Harr was proved by two of the witnesses and ordered to be certified.34

     On 31 May 1781, Simon Harr was granted a license in pursuance of the Act of Assembly to join in holy matrimony any person or persons that may apply for that purpose.35 Simon preformed as many as 368 wedding cermonies.32

     On 18 January 1782, there is a deed from Mary Wolf of town of Strasburg and County of Shenandoah to Simon Harr of said town and County, in consideration of 100 pounds current money, all and every of them four lots and two parts of lots adjoining them and Christopher Lamparts out lots … in said town of Stasburg … four lots of half acre each. Signed by Mary Wolf, witnessed by Alex. Hite, Phillip Smith, and Martin Zea.36 On that same day there is a deed from Simon Harr and Eve his wife of the County of Shenandoah to Mary Wolf of town of Strasburg in the County, for consideration of 100 pounds … all them four half acre of lots adjoining the same half acre lots (?) … said lots convyed by deed from Anthony Hullenthal to said Simon. Signed Simon Harr and witnessed by Alexander Hite, Phillip Smith, and Martin Zea.37 On 27 June 1782, Eve Harr is examined by Alexander Hite and John Snap … she released her right of dower.37 On this same day an indenture of bargain and sale from Simon Harr and Eve his wife to Mary Woolf was proved by the oaths of Alex. Hite, Philip Smith, and Martin Zea and ordered to be recorded. Certification of the examination of Eve Harr for coveyances Harr to Woolf was returned and ordered to be recorded.38

     It would appear by the above that Simon Harr and Mary Wolf were exchanging ownership of certain lots on an equal cost basis. About a year later, 28 October 1783, Mary Wolf sold her lots to Jeremiah Eberly, Junior.39

     In the Heads of Families in Virginia, 1783, Simon is listed with 7 white and 0 black.40

     Overseers of the Poor bind William Ruse, age seven, a base born child to Simon Harr on 25 December 1783.41

     On 25 August 1785, Simon Harr, Jacob Keller, and Christian Coop witnessed the will of David Huddle.42

     In the Heads of Families in Virginia, 1785, Simon is listed with 5 white souls, 1 dwelling, 1other building. John Harr is listed with 3 white souls.43 Simon and John lived next door to each other and the renown Lutheran Minister, Paul Henkle, lived only one door away. Paul Henkle was from Pennslyvania and carried Lutheranism to the people of the valley of Virginia, east Tennessee, and western North Carolina, and, on occasions, between 1785 and 1790, he preached at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Sullivan County, Tennessee. John subsequently moved to the area of Immanual Church and became a member of the Church.1 John's half brother, David, also moved to the Sullivan County area.

     On 26 January 1786, Simon Harr along with George Miller witnessed the will of Jeremiah Eberly.44 Later that year, 28 September, Simon Harr, John Harr, and Martin Zek witnessed the release and quit claim of dower rights and title of dower of lots of land belonging to said Christopher Lambert, deceased, by Barbara Lamber, widow and relick of Christopher Lamber of the town of Strasburg, Shenandoah County, to Alexander and Jacob Lambert, executors of the last will and testament of Christopher Lambert.45

     On 8 December 1789, Simon Harr, John Harr, Martin Bearth, and Lawrence Snapp witnessed the will of Peter Snapp.46 John Harr's wife, Susannah, was the sister of Peter Snapp and Lawrence Snapp.

     Simon Harr, Lewis Miller, and another (unreadable) witnessed the will of Henry Miller on 5 September 1791.47

     On 11 April 1797, John Harr was appointed administrator by the Shenandoah Co. Court for the estate of Simon Harr who died intestate.48

     On April 27, 1797, by order of the court of Shenandoah County, Virginia, the estate of Simon Harr, deceased, was appraised. The estate, as inventoried and appraised showed household furnishings, etc. and books, including a large Dutch Bible, and other items like those purchased by Jacob Harr in Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia, in 1757. The inventory included several smoking pipes and accessories. His personal property was appraised at a total value of 147 pounds in Virginia currency, which was considerable at the time, and this did not include the value of land, dwelling, and other building structures. He appears to have been financially sound even when he arrived in Virginia. The sale of personal property in settlement of his estate was held Apr. 28, 1797. His widow and sons, and Lawrence Snapp, were among those purchasing items. His widow and sons took most of the books in his library written both in German and English.9

     Three of Simon's sons, Frederick, John, and David became the heirs of Simon's property. They disposed of some if not all of the lots owned by Simon on the 13th and 21st of May 1799, as indicated by the following entries in the Shenandoah County deed books.

     On 13 May 1799, Frederick Harr and Frainey his wife, John Harr and Susannah his wife, and David Harr of Shenandoah County sold to Christian Stover son of Jacob Stover, deceased, for consideration of 75 pounds, a five acre lot of land which was conveyed by Frederick Segchrist by deed of lease and release the 8th and 9th of June 1780 to Simon Harr father of said Frederick, John Harr, and David Harr now deceased who died intestate. Signed by above sellers and witnessed by Abraham Hite, Philip Spengler, and Jacob Funk.49 On 13 April 1804, Christian Stover sold this five acre lot to Lenhard Balthis Sen. for the consideration of $200.50

Strasburg Museum

     In the museum at Strasburg, Virginia, are two historical bibles. The large Bible survived an Indian atrocity in 1764. While attacking the Miller family, the Indians placed hot coals on the open book burning several pages. As a further act of derision, they killed the family cat and threw its body on top, smothering the fire. (Published 1738). The smaller Bible belonged to Peter Stover who founded Strasburg in 1761. (Published 1740). Both bibles are written in German with handsome formats and illustrations.

     Included in the smaller bible is a separate paper written in English by Simon Harr, who was Strasburg's first schoolmaster teaching from 1778 to 1815 [sic]. This last date of 1815, the same date that is inscribed on the plaque in front of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Strasburg, is incorrect as Simon died in 1796.

Major Life Events

     John Henry Harr was born on 19 December 1761 at Shenandoah Co., Virginia.1 He married Suzannah Snapp, daughter of Lawrence Snapp and Margaret ?, on 13 March 1782 at Shenandoah Co., Virginia.1,2 John died on 19 December 1838 at Sullivan Co., Tennessee, at age 77.1 He was interred in December 1838 at Old Snapp Cemetery at Sullivan Co., Tennessee.1,2

Children of John and Suzannah:

Narrative

     John's middle name is based on information found on page HPF 39-20 of the Holston Pastfinder, Vol. 10, No. 4.

     In Heads of Families in Virginia, 1785, John Harr is listed with 3 white souls in Shenandoah County.3 He lived next to his father Simon Harr. Paul Henkle lived only one door away.2

     On the 24th and 25th of July 1787, John Harr and Susannah his wife of the County of Shenandoah sold to John Buck of the same place, in consideration of 120 pounds, 413 acres granted to John Harr by deed from the Proprietors Office bearing date 29th December 1762, according to the release. The lease indicates that John received the 413 acres by deed of gift, no witnesses.4 The land was probably obtained by John Harr by deed of gift and was his wife's inheritence from her father Lawrence Snapp who was a large land holder. Lawrence Snapp probably was the receiver of the land by deed from the Proprietors Office in 1762 or had purchased the land originally. Lawrence had received several grants of land from Fairfax as well as had purchased many acres during his lifetime. John Harr was born in 1761 so obviously was too young in 1762 to received land by deed.

     On 16 November 1787, Peter Snapp and his wife of Shenandoah County sold to John Harr of County aforesaid, for the consideration of 160 pounds, all that part and tract of land that had been laid off by Jacob Riker, Esq. for said John Harr, corner to Lawrence Snapp and in Frederick Stoners line, containing 150 acres of land near Tumbling Run and part of a greater tract of 430 acres the same being part of a greater tract of 1,791 acres granted by deed from the Proprietors Office to Lawrence Snapp, Senior, who by his last will and testament in writing the 5th day of April 1782 divised and bequeath unto his son Philip Snapp amongst other legacees, and said Philip Snapp and Catharine his wife conveyed unto Peter Snapp the 15th and 16th of August 1783, said Peter Snapp and Catharine his wife now convey unto said John Harr as part thereof 150 acres, no witnesses.5

     After the death of his father Simon intestate in 1797, John and his brother Frederick, and half brother David, sold Simon's land consisting of several lots in the town of Strasburg in May of 1799.6 Evidently these three were the only children of Simon's either still living or living in the vicinity of Shenandoah County. John and David were still living in Shenandoah County and Frederick was living in Augusta County, south of Shenandoah County.

     On 9 May 1801, Margarett Snapp of Shenandoah County, widow of Lawrence Snapp deceased, made her will naming daughters Margaret, wife of Henry Keller, Susanna, wife of John Harr, mentioning my children's children, children of Christina and Michael Speigal, children of Peter Snapp, and children of Joseph Snapp. Son Philip Snapp, son-in-law Henry Keller, and son-in-law John Harr were named executors. Witnessed by Isaac Miller and Jacob Funk.7

     On 7 September 1801, John Harr and Susannah his wife of Shenandoah County sold to Martin Feazle of county aforesaid, for consideration of 100 pounds, all that lot or parcel of five acres and one quarter of land, being part of a larger tract of 150 acres conveyed by deed from Peter Snapp and Catharine his wife the 16th of November 1787 to said John Harr, no witnesses.8 On 10 March 1806 Martin Feasle and Mary his wife sold this five and one quarter acre lot to Jacob Funk (son of Joseph) for $400.9

     John Harr and Susannah his wife of Shenandoah County on 13 March 1802 sold Jacob Funk son of Joseph deceased of County aforesaid, for consideration of 510 pounds, a tract of land situate and lying and being on a branch of Funks Mill run, corner to Lawrence Snapp, containing 140 acres, surveyed 3 March 1802 by Jacob Rinker, Surveyor, it being the same land conveyed by Peter Snapp and Catherine his wife [to John Harr, witnessed by Philip Spengler, J. Gatewood, and Jonas Creabill. On 15 March, Susannah, wife of John Harr released dower right on the above land.10

     On 1 September 1806, John Harr and Susannah his wife of County of Shenandoah sold to Charles Meng, for consideration of 330 pounds, a tract of land lying and being near the North Mountain, containing 313 acres more or less, witnessed by John Geyeye, J. Evans, and Daniel Madeira. Mrs. Susannah Harr, wife of John Harr, released dower right to said land on 5 September, witnessed by Wm. H. Dulaney, J. Evans, and Daniel Madeira.11 This 313 acres was sold on 25 January 1808, by Charles Meng and Victoria of County of Shenandoah his wife to Henry Kearns, for consideration of 500 pounds.12 This appears to be the last record of John in Shenandoah County. It must be around this time that he went to Sullivan County, Tennessee.

     John, along with his half brother, David, moved from Shenandoah Co., VA to Sullivan Co., TN in probably 1806-1808 settling in the area northwest of Blountville, TN, in the vincinity of Immanuel Lutheran Church on the Old Reedy Creek Road, presently near the intersection of road #37 and U. S. Highway 11-W. John lived near the Drokes who lived on lands adjoining Immanuel Lutheran Church. It is believed that Paul Henkle, the reknown Lutheran minister, who made pilgrimages to Immanuel and East Tennessee churches and who lived practically next door to John Harr in Shenandoah Co., VA, was influnential in the Snapps and Harrs migration to the Immanuel Lutheran Church.2

     On 17 February 1807, Samuel McDonald deeded to John Harr for consideration of $330 a certain tract or parcel of land containing 66 acres be the same more or less said land lying and being in said county (Sullivan) and on the waters of Reedy Creek beginning at Richard Smith's Corner. Witnesses: John Punch, Martin Harkleroad, John Foust13

     On 11 April 1808, Phillip Snapp, Samuel Snapp, and Lawrence Snapp Jr. deeded to John Harr for consideration of $534 a certain tract or parcel of land containing 133 acres be the same more or less said land lying and being in the county aforesaid (Sullivan) and on the waters of Reedy Creek, Beginning near William Keys Orphans Land and joining George Rodehofers line. Witnesses: Samuel Blackmore, Isaac Stephen, John Stephens, N. Fein, Richard Gammon, Junr.14

     On 16 May 1808, James Jett deeded to John Harr for consideration of $155 a certain tract or parcel of land containing 33 acres be the same more or less lying and being the county of Sullivan and state aforesaid on fall creek, Beginning at a corner of Jacob Isley's and joining Martin Roller's line and along David Rollars line. Witnesses" Peter Pectol, John Jenings15

     One source lists the children of John and Susannah as Christina, John Joseph, John Simon, John William, John John, and Fanny.16 Another source lists the children of John and Susannah as Margaret, Elizabeth, John Joseph, John Simon, Susannah, Christina, Veronica, and John.17 Both lists are combined in this report for the family of John and Suzannah.

     Droke in his manuscript gave John's death date as 1836, and states that he was buried in Old Snapp Cemetery. However, the Houston Genealogical Society's Families of Sullivan County gives his death date as 19 December 1838.

U. S. Census Records

Census1830John was listed as the head of a family on the 1830 Census at Sullivan Co., Tennessee. Enumerated were:

Children of Frederick and Frances:

Narrative

     It has commonly been believed that Frederick Harr and his wife moved to the Fairmont area of Marion County, Virginia/West Virginia. A son Henry, was born March 26, 1793, who had a son David Porter Harr. Henry moved to Pennsylvania and thereafter David and other descendants lived in Pennsylvania.5 However, when Simon's property was sold after his death by his sons Frederick, John, and David, Frederick is listed as being in Augusta County, Virginia. A cemetery record in the Riverheads District of southern Augusta County, Virginia, contains tombstone inscriptions with the born-died information for a Frederick and Frances Harr. This is probably the same Frederick Harr and his wife Ferney Funk. Perhaps, after going to Marion County, they moved to Augusta County. However, the birth date from the tombstone differs from the date of 1765 in Alfred Droke's report but is close enough that this could be the same Frederick Harr. The source of the birth date given by Alfred Droke is not known.

     Also, buried beside Frederick and Frances, is a William Harr, d. Aug. 1, 1819, at age 6 years, 6 months, and 10 days. This is probably another son of Frederick and Franey.

Children of David and Mary:

Narrative

     David was a son of Simon by his second wife, Eve Printzler (maiden name Beard or Bare). He may have been the youngest son of Simon. Being born in 1777 he would have been about age 19 or 20 when Simon died in 1797.

     The first record of David in Shenandoah can be found in May of 1799 when Frederick, John, and David dispose of the property of their father Simon who died intestate.6 On 9 June of 1799, David used two lots in the town of Woodstock, known as nos. 43 and 86, conveyed to him by Frederick Heiskill and Catherine his wife by deed on 6th April 1799 (have not found that deed) to secure payment of 38 pounds 2 shillings and eight pence owed to Abraham Brubaker, Sen., in consideration of one dollar.7

     On 31 December 1800, it was recorded that David "hath fairly and honestly paid unto said Abraham Brubaker, Senr. the sum of 38 pounds 2 shillings and eight pence with lawful interest thereon" and Abraham Brubaker junr. [sic] "hath released and forever quit claim the aforesaid moiety of two inn lots of land", witnessed by Dan Lee, Adam Derting, and John Effinger.8 Also on that date, 31 December 1800, David used those two lots, nos. 43 and 86 in the town of Woodstock, to secure payment of 110 pounds, eleven shillings which he justly owed to Nicholas Keffer of the town of Woodstock, also witnessed by Dan Lee, John Effinger, and Adam Derting.8

     On 18 February 1801, David Harr of the County of Shenandoah, sold to David Rodeheffer Junior and John Rodeheffer, sadler of same county, for consideration of 210 pounds, two lots in the town of Woodstock, known as nos. 43 and 86, containing one half acre of land, being the same lots conveyed to David Harr the 26th of April 1799 by Frederick Heiskill and Catherine his wife, witnessed by George Lind, William Gilham, Alexander Pollock, George Hoffman, and John Lee.9 Evidently David had clear the debt owed to Nicholas Keffer before this sale or used the proceeds of this sale to do so.

     On 8 January 1803, Nicholas Keffer and Polly his wife of the town of Woodstock, County of Shenandoah sold to David Harr of same place, in consideration of 160 pounds, two certain lots of land lying and being in the town of Woodstock containing an estimation half acre of land each and known as nos. 104 and 153, on the Main Street of the said town, adjoining the lots of George Swartz and Jacob Longanacre being the same lots conveyed to Nicholas Keffer on the (unreadable) day of April 1802, witnessed by Jacob Ott, Henry Bline, and John Lee.10 Later that year, 14 October 1803, David sold these two lots, nos. 104 and 153 in the town of Woodstock, to John Rodefeffer for the consideration of 200 pounds, witnessed by Ulrick Miller, Mar Hupp, and Joseph Miller.11

     On 28 November 1803, David Harr of the County of Shenandoah sold to Nicholas Keffer of the same County, for the consideration of 28 pounds, one moiety (half) of a certain lot in the town of Woodstock known by number 43, it being the moiety of the said lot which was conveyed to said David Harr by Frederick Heiskill and Catharine his wife by their deed the 26th of April 1799, witnessed by Jacob Ott, John Effinger, and George Hoffman.12 This same lot had been sold by David to David and John Rodeheffer on 18 February 1801. Evidently he had only sold half of lot 43 to David and John Rodeheffer.

     On 8 April 1805, the following was recorded: Between Samuel Bear of County of Shenandoah to John Rodeheffer of the same county, whereas by certain indenture the 11 October 1803 between David Harr and Samuel Bear as trustee for said David Harr and James Anderson said David Harr did grant unto me one certain lot in the town of Woodstock known by the number 154 and two lots in absolute fee to said John Rodeheffer and I do declare that my name was used in the first above mentioned, This Indenture Witnesseth that I Samuel Bear discharge the trust at the request of John Rodeheffer.13 This appears to be the last mention of David Harr in the County of Shenandoah.

     David along with his half brother, John, moved from Shenandoah Co., VA to Sullivan County, Tennessee, probably in 1806-1808 settling in the area northwest of Blountville, TN, in the vincinity of Immanual Lutheran Church on the Old Reedy Creek Road, presently near the intersection of road #37 and U. S. Highway 11-W.

     David may initially lived in Washington County, Virginia when he moved to the area. He was unmarried at the time and later married Mary Ann Leonard, daughter of Frederick Leonard of Washington County. In Washington County records there are records of a Henry Briscoe defending against all claims land with the appurtenances thereunto belonging to Susan Hickman in June 1843. Susan Hickman, the widow of Peter Hickman, Jr., was the daughter of Daniel Troxell. The records mentioned that this 8 1/2 acres was formally sold by David Harr to Daniel Troxell on June 21, 1825.14 Also, David was listed as a member of the Washington County Militia in Capt. Goodson's Company, 2nd Battalion, 105th Regiment in 1807, and in Capt. Goff's Company in 1809 and 1812.15

     David's middle initial of H. is based on a listing on the Sullivan County, Tennessee 1837 tax list for District No. 5, Blountville and Surrounding Community. He was listed as David H. Harr with 116 acres having a value of $406.16

     This land was purchased from Robert Rhea in 1836. The tract included a house originally build by John Carothers in the late 1700s. In 1847, David Harr sold the house he had lived in near the big spring (not the Carothers house) to his son Adam, for a "valuable consideration" which was that Adam would maintain David and his wife, Mary, as long as they lived. In addition, Adam was to pay James Harr "when he is twenty-one years of age a good young horse beast saddle & briddle worth sixty dollars." David sold the Carothers House and 66 acres to his son Elkanah Harr the same day of the sale to Adam.

     Elkanah sold 163 acres with the house to Robert E. Wolfe in 1898. In 1902, Wolfe sold the house and 25 acres to Nannie V. Rhea (wife of J. E. Rhea). Two years later she sold to Dr. W. A. Miller who sold to M. B. Wilson within a year. M. B. Wilson added to the property through the purchase of Martha A. Harr's interest in the estate of her father, Adam Harr.

     Wilson died in 1907 from Pneumonia and in 1917, when the Wilson estate was partitioned by the court, it consisted of a little more than 116 acres. The partioning gave Mrs. Wilson the homestead tract of two acres and 136 poles and a 30-acre dower tract. She also received from Adam Harr's estate a 12-acre tract that joined the dower and homestead tracts. Henry Wilson received 26½ acres just east of the dower tract whild the land east of Henry's was subdivided in 28¾ acres each for Laurie Wilson Snapp and Dolly Wilson Anderson.

     Henry was the son of M. B. Wilson and Annie Catherine Harr Wilson and the grandson of Adam Harr. Later, Henry bought the interests of Laurie and Dolly in the dower and homestead tract. When Henry married Bessie Christina Snodgrass, he and his wife continue to live with Mrs. Wilson until her death in 1951. On October 20, 1922, Annie Catherine and Henry Wilson sold "a piece of ground twenty-five feet square around what is known as the 'Old Harr Spring'" to Sullivan County. It was from this spring and the nearby C. V. Stoat spring that water was first piped to the town of Blountville. The house is located on Highway 37, just north of I-81.17

     Three of David Harr's sons, David, Elkanah, and Adam served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. It is suspected that David and Mary may have died during the early 1860s while their sons David, Elkanah, and Adam were away at war and that they may have been buried in unmarked graves on the Harr property.

Child of Elkanah and Nancy:

Narrative

     Elkanah and Louisa were married by Rev. William Hancher. Elkanah and Mattie were married by Rev. W. G. Wolford.

     Elkanah's father David purchased 116 acres of land from Robert Rhea in 1836. The tract included a house originally build by John Carothers in the late 1700s. In 1847, David Harr sold the house he had lived in near the big spring (not the Carothers house) to his son Adam, for a "valuable consideration" which was that Adam would maintain David and his wife, Mary, as long as they lived. David sold the Carothers House and 66 acres to his son Elkanah Harr the same day of the sale to Adam. Elkanah sold 163 acres with the house to Robert E. Wolfe in 1898. In 1902, Wolfe sold the house and 25 acres to Nannie V. Rhea (wife of J. E. Rhea). Two years later she sold to Dr. W. A. Miller who sold to M. B. Wilson within a year. M. B. Wilson added to the property through the purchase of Martha A. Harr's interest in the estate of her father, Adam Harr. Wilson died in 1907 from Pneumonia and in 1917, when the Wilson estate was partitioned by the court, it consisted of a little more than 116 acres. The partioning gave Mrs. Wilson the homestead tract of two acres and 136 poles and a 30-acre dower tract. She also received from Adam Harr's estate a 12-acre tract that joined the dower and homestead tracts. Henry Wilson received 26½ acres just east of the dower tract whild the land east of Henry's was subdivided in 28¾ acres each for Laurie Wilson Snapp and Dolly Wilson Anderson. Henry was the son of M. B. Wilson and Annie Catherine Harr Wilson and the grandson of Adam Harr. Later, Henry bought the interests of Laurie and Dolly in the dower and homestead tract. When Henry married Bessie Christina Snodgrass, he and his wife continue to live with Mrs. Wilson until her death in 1951. On October 20, 1922, Annie Catherine and Henry Wilson sold "a piece of ground twenty-five feet square around what is known as the 'Old Harr Spring'" to Sullivan County. It was from this spring and the nearby C. V. Stoat spring that water was first piped to the town of Blountville. The house is located on Highway 37, just north of I-81.12

     Elkanah, as well as his brothers David (Jr.) and Adam, served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War.

     The combined Confederate Civil War records at the National Archives, Washington, D. C., indicate that E. D. Harr was enlisted by Capt. Millard in Co. F of the 63rd Regiment Tennessee Infantry, for three years on Feb. 23, 1863. He appears on muster rolls for Mar. and Apr. 1863, May and June 1863, July and Aug. 1863, and Sept. and Oct. 1863. On the muster roll for Nov. & Dec. 1863 it is indicated that he is absent and sick in the hospital at Kingston, Georgia having been sent there by order of the regiment surgeon on Oct. 10, 1863. On the muster of Jan. and Feb. 1864, it is indicated that he is at home upon the surgeon's certificate of disability.13

     He apparently returns and appears on a muster roll dated Apr. 6, 1864. On the muster roll for May and June 1864, it is indicated that E. D. Harr was captured at Drury's Bluff on May 16, 1864. He then appears absent on rolls for July and Aug. 1864, Sept. and Oct. 1864, and Nov. and Dec. 1864.

     Prisoner of War records show that he was turned over to the Assistant Provost Marshal at Ft. Monroe, Virginia, on May 17, 1864. He was then forwarded to Point Lookout, Maryland on May 18, 1864, and subsequently exchanged on Nov. 1, 1864.

     It apppears that Elkanah was enumerated twice in the U. S. Census of 1900, first in the household of his son John B. Harr and nine days later in the household of his son William Deery Harr.

Children of Adam and Nancy:

Narrative

     Adam, as well as his brothers David (Jr.) and Elkanah, served in the Confederate Army during the Civil War.

     In 1847, David Harr sold the house he had lived in near the big spring to his son Adam, for a "valuable consideration" which was that Adam would maintain David and his wife, Mary, as long as they lived. In addition, Adam was to pay James Harr "when he is twenty-one years of age a good young horse beast saddle & briddle worth sixty dollars." David sold the Carothers House and 66 acres to his son Elkanah Harr the same day of the sale to Adam. 8

     According to the combined Confederate Civil War records at the National Archives in Washington, D. C., Adam Harr was enlisted by Capt. Millard in Company F, 63rd Regiment Tennessee Infantry, for three years on Feb. 23, 1863, at age 36. He appears on muster rolls for Mar. and Apr. 1863, and May & June 1863. On musters for July and Aug. 1863, Sept. and Oct. 1863, Nov. and Dec. 1863, and Jan. and Feb. 1864 he is listed as absent without leave having been sent to the hospital at Knoxville by the regiment surgeon McDonough on Aug. 20, 1863. He next appears on a roll dated Apr. 6, 1864. On a muster roll for May and June 1864, it is indicated that he was wounded at Drury's Bluff on May 16, 1864, and sent to the hospital by order of the regiment surgeon. On the rolls of the General Hospital, Howards Grove, Richmond, Virginia, he is listed as admitted on May 17, 1864, and furloughted for 60 days on June 17, 1864. On June 18, 1864, he is paid $44.00 for period of service July 1, 1863 to Oct. 31, 1863. On rolls for July and Aug. 1864, Sept. and Oct. 1864, and Nov. and Dec. 1864, he is still listed as absent having been sent to the hospital by the surgeon. On rolls for Nov. and Dec. 1864, he is listed absent, on sick furlough by order of Gen. Lee.9

     At Drury's Bluff, Adam is quoted as having called out that he had been shot "right through the brain and right through the heart." He, however, survived his wounds.10

     Records at the General Hospital, Howard's Grove, Richmond, Virginia shows that Adam Harr was received and admitted May 17, 1864. These records also indicate that he was given a 60 day furlough on June 17, 1864. No further records were found.
