John Harm was married twice. He first married Christina Margaret Smith in Germany, she died in 1872. So far I have no other information on her. To the first marriage was born (John) Henry Harm, (who used the designation 'Senior' after his name as an adult), Marie Harm, Lena Harm, and two other children who possibly died before reaching adulthood. Lena stayed in Germany and became Mrs. Naggle. Marie emigrated from Germany and settled in Moville, Woodbury County, Iowa. She married Fred Schroeder. Henry Harm married Auguste S. Johanna Wieck. They had a large family with many descendants, one of which is me!

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed information, newspapers clippings and photos to this web site. I couldn't have done it without your help. There are too many to list here, so many have shared information, but I would specifically like to thank Ruth King Gernhart for her countless hours of searching and researching and compiling names and histories to complete the various branches of our family tree. Thanks, Ruth!
I would also like to thank Judy King Morton for all her work in organizing our family reunions and her wonderful family newsletter "Family Ties". Thanks, Judy! To get on the newsletter mailing list, contact Judy.
