I am looking for any information on James L. Harlan.
I know he was married to Rhoda Alice Jones
before his death in 1936, also there was a first
wife named Cora (?). James L. Harlan 1869-1936.
He is buried in Eufaula,Okla. next to his his
first wife and child. He had five children with
his second wife Rhoda. Some of the children were
James, Ellen Corean, Laura, also buried at Eufaula,
Oklahoma. James L. Harlan is my Great Great
Grandfather and I would like to know anything
I can find out. I really wonder where he came
from prior to being in Indain Territory.

Go to and you'll find all the Native American Harlins/ans, excellently documented. I'm pretty sure I saw your family there.
