Looking for origins of Jean Pierre Harmann. Harmann is the name he went by after immigrating to Iowa in 1869. In his obituary, it says he was born in March of 1838 in Perle, Belgium. I could not find a place called Perle, but I believe the children who were recalling the information for the obit might have meant Paal. From what surname might Harmann have derived? Does anyone have any information on Jean Pierre? He was single when he immigrated and his father's name was Henri. Thank you!
