Looking for ANY information regarding Frederick HARMS and/or son Robert who lived in Owen and Witree areas. Robert was living here during the 1930's and other than that don't have very much info so anything would be appreciated.

Thank you thank you for the information on the HARMS family in Riverside Cemetary. Since we have so very little information on this family this is invaluable!!

Don't know if you're still looking but, there's a Robert Harms in my family tree, except he is younger so may be a son or grandson. Here's what I have.
Fern David Harms (notes = Fern David Harms, Machinists Mate 3-C of the Navy, son of Mr and Mrs Fern T Harms of Owen received his honorable discharge from the Navy at Great Lakes Il on 12-3-45. He entered Navy service at Great Lakes 5-20-43, received his basic training there & later was assigned to the USS Pollux. He shipped out 8-10-43 & was aboard that ship in the South Pacific until he received his discharge. He is entitled to wear the Victory Medal, the Asiatic-Pacific Campaign robbin, the American Area Campaign ribbon, & the Philippine Liberation ribbon. His wife, Verna, met him in Milwaukee on his return. She has been making her home with her parents Mr & Mrs Leo Bredesen. He was employed at the Western Condensery at Owen.) married
Verna Marie Bredesen (b 11-2-1925) (notes = Per Olga Martin's (Jeanette BREDESON Johnson's sister) letter of 1-20-72, Verna was in the Clark Co Hospital and had lost her mind. Eileen BREDESEN Dunn also states in letter in 1971 that Verna was hospitalized.)
Robert David Harms
My link is to Verna. There were 6 Bredesen girls born of Leo & Mabel Bredesen. Leo was my grandmother's brother. They were all from the Greenwood area, but fanned out some. If you are interested in more, let me know.

It is interesting to see what people think they know. Verna did not "lose" her mind & to say she did is being ill informed. She lived her life supporting her daughter with a reputable job. Verna did very well for herself & I believe putting this on the internet is very disrespectful to her family. Do not ever state she "lost" her mind. You are misinformed & do not know this family.

I have never had a tree on Ancestry or any other website for that matter so I don't know where you saw it. I do have a Family Tree Maker tree using FTM software on my home computer but that's all. I did post my notes on Verna in response to an inquiry from an ancestry user in 2002. What I wrote was taken directly from the letter from Olga Martin's letter as it states in the post. I am sorry that the information was incorrect. Jan
