Hi, I saw this post and wanted to contact you. I am Mary SWINK Harmon and I live in Columbia, S.C.

Jacob Harmon (16 Oct 1786 - 20 Sep 1834) married on 17 Jul 1808 Anna Turner (26 Jul 1788 - 05 Apr 1851) daughter of Thomas Turner II and Mary (Sweet? or Humphreys?).

In 1809 he bought from his mother 97 acres originally part of his father's 1773 Land Grant of 150 acres on Buffalo Creek. In 1813 they moved from Newberry, S.C. to Newton County, Georgia where land deeds in his name are dated 1828 and 1831. His will was probated on 04 Nov 1834, appointing his son Lewis and son-in-law John Bagby as executors. His widow Anna, took over running the farm, and appears in the 1850 Newton County, GA. census heading household #486 at age 62, with her unmarried daughter Nancy (age 20). They are buried in the woods 2-miles west of Covington near the road to Brown's Bridge, together with a child's grave marked "T.H."; 60 feet away is a group of unmarked graves, perhaps of slaves. Jacob had (11) children, the first eight or nine of whom were born in Newberry, S.C. and last two in Newton County, Georgia".

If the graves can be located, please make pictures for me.

Many thanks,
Mary S. Harmon
