  • Notes 
    • As is the case in most research the dates of birth of individuals areu sually stated differently as situations and needs arise. Along withan e ntry to the Family Bible a check of the Indiana Birth Databaseindicate s a Male Harmon child born to March and Cath Rogers in VigoCounty on A ugust 17, 1894. Another match is stated on his firstmarriage applicat ion to Anna Drake, while another match is listed forhim on the Social S ecurity Death Index Database. William was locatedwith his parents on the 1900 Indiana census, dated J une 28, living inFayette Township, Vigo County. He was listed as Will ie, age 5, bornApr 1895 in Indiana. He was not found with his parents o n the 1910census. An extensive search for him in 1910 at the ages of 1 5 or 16was done with no results. He marries Anna Drake in 1915 where h e wasworking as a teamster and indicates it is his first marriage. AMilitary Search was performed and he is listed on teh WW 1 Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918; however there is no indication that heserve d. His card is dated June 5, 1917 and states he lived at 2510Dean in T erre Haute Indiana. His birth date is stated as August17,1895, born i n Sanford, Indiana, works as a Coal Miner for theGregory Coal Company i n Terre Haute, Indiana, is married andsignature is W J Harmon. He is d escribed as tall and slender withgray eyes and light colored hair. William and hisfamily are listedon the 1920 Indiana Census, living in V igo County, Harrison Township(indexed Harmon, ED 115, dated Jan17, she et 18A, lines 29-31).William owns his home by Mortgage on Dean Avenue. Those in the homewere: Wm J (25), Coal Miner, Anna(23), wife; Erne stine M (2 yrs. 3months), daughter, born in Indiana.Just above them bu t located on25th Street was Anna's parents and some of hersiblings. In 1930,William is located with his sister's family (Grace O'Toole)in Missouri, St Louis County, City of St Louis (ED 70, dated April 5,sheet5 B, lines 74-77). William is on line 77, listed as William JHarmon,age 3 3, bro-in-law, Single, a Roofer in State & Tile. Heanswered NOto vet. A ccording to his second marriage application,there was adivorce in 1929 . A search of the online Family Trees was made in aneffort to locate inf ormation on this first family of William Joseph.This research reveals t hat Anna Drake may be Sarah Anna and thatErnestine M may be Ernestine M arie. Using this information anothersearch of the Census Records reve als teh following information thatmay be these persons, however furthu r research is called for toconfirm. The 1930 census of Illinois, Macon County, Decatur Township,ED 3 shows a S arah Harmon as head of a rooming house, states she isage 34, divorced, b orn in Indiana, both parents born in Indiana. Theinformation is close t o the information we have on Anna, howeverthereis no child listed with h er. Also, according to the familytrees she supposedly remarried in Il linois to a man with the lastname of Goldenin Chicago, Illinois.

She is listed i n the ST VincentOrphanage and it is stated that she is born in Indiana , both parentsborn in Indiana. Again this information is very close t o theinformation gathered on the child of William Joseph and Anna Harm onand further research is called for.
