Harman - Hermann Genealogy
Seeking information and family links to Johann Hermann & wife, Catharina Schuler, who settled in Elk Ridge in Anne Arundel County, Maryland around 1762. Johann & Catharina immigrated from Erdmans Weiler, Wurttemberg, Germany around 1752, with four sons. Matthias, Johann Georg, Johannes and Andreas Hermann. Surname changed to Harman on later generations.
In Anne Arundel: I have my GGGG grandfather as Johannes Hermann born 23 July 1734 in Erdmans Weiler. I have his wife as Mary Margaret NLN b. 4 March 1745. My line would be through son Andrew, m. Rebecca Reynolds, grandson Enos m. Micha Lilley, great-grand-daughter Amanda Ellen m. John Giles Cromwell, Gr gr grand-daughter Anne Elizabeth Cromwell m. J. Frank Solley, Sr whose son is my father.
I have not researched and documented this line, but the information comes partly from correspondence with the Anne Arundel Genealogical Society. The Society was the beneficiary of research on the Harman family done by Mr. William Gray Harman from the 1930's to the 1950's, later donated to the Kuethe Library at the Society.
Are we talking about the same person? Why the difference in name of wife?
I have very little qualitative information and would love to know more about the Harmans. Glad to share anything I have on my branch.
Great to meet you "cousin"!
Your ancestor, Johannes Hermann, is a son of Johann & Catharina. He came to America in 1752 and settled with his parents and (at least) three other brothers on Elk Ridge in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. The nearby town of the same name is now plotted in Howard County, Maryland. A small village at the original site is Harmans, Maryland. At Harmans, the graves of the early family were to be seen when I was a boy, but have since been moved and replaced by either highway or industrial development. I would love to have any dates you have for Harmans on Johannes branch. I have Gray Harman's tree, but much detail is left out. More later... time for work.

Thanks for your help.
I am researching the Solley Family in East Kent, England.
Am wondering what your connection is to the Solley family. Any help much appreciated. Kind Regards. Sue Solley
Solley in Anne Arundel and Kent, Eng.
My gr gr gr grandfather Thomas Solley Sr.(1788-1847, m. Jemima Wood) and gr gr grandfather Thomas Solley Jr. (b. 1814 in England, died 1875 in AA, m. Sarah Anne Williams in AA) both emigrated from Ash, Kent. (Willaims had first married Wm. S. Pumphrey.) The Sole Society has provided me names and dates of my direct ancestors back to my 10th (tenth) great grandfather Stephen Sollye (b. abt 1550 m. Mildred Cocke.) I have received little qualitative information on my English ancestors and I have no specifics on the actual journey to the US. Last October I walked the family cemetery in Solley, Anne Arundel County, MD.
Tried to answer you privately (with more info) but the mail demon did not like your address.
I would appreciate hearing what informatin you have and what you are seeking.
The Harman family of Anne Arundel county is well researched from about 1650 through 1950. Today, many of these Harmans live in Elkridge, Maryland... Now Howard County. Gray Harman lived in NJ until his death some years ago. When I was young, I met Gray at several family reunions in Elkridge. He was very dedicated to researching the tree and most of the information we have today is a result of Gray's work. The historical society of Anne Arundel County has many of his papers archived and there is an extensive family tree that has been produced from his work. Most Harman's around Elkridge have copies of it on their walls. I will get some stuff together for you and send it along next week. Very busy this week.
I am looking for information on the Harman Family Tree.My grandfather was George Wm.Harman,Sr.My cousin's wife told me that Gray Harman is an uncle.My grandfather said that The Harmans Maryland In Anne Arundel Co.is his family.
Could you please send me the information you have? I can send you what little information that I have.
I have been looking for info about the Kinkey?Husbands for a while. I am thrilled to find your message. I am a descendant of William Husband/Mary Kinkey. Would love to find out more about the Kinkeys and the Hermans. Thanks!
