  • Notes 
    • "Came to Springfield, Mass. about 1644 probably from Maine. His home lot was the next one south of Henry Burt's. The three older Harmon brothers were all found early in Suffield history. The Harmon's had endeavored to procure a grant for a new town. They were great hunters and trappers, as the number of beaver skins and other furs sold to Major Pynchon indicate, and were probably more familiar with the topography of the town, which was a dense wilderness, than any other white men. The three Harmon brothers Samuel, Joseph, & Nathaniel revived the first land grants in Suffield in 1670." [Suffield Historical Society, "Early Suffield Families."]
