Second Generation

11. Hiram H. HARMON was born in 1810.3 He died before May 1836 at the age of 26.

I have been unable to find any likely Harmon that could be this Hiram in either 1840 or 1850. The following deed in 1836 would suggest that Ruth was a widow by 1836 - a married female could not have been selling property.
One online database stated that Hiram died 1831 in the Black Hawk War. However, I have yet to find in his name in any listing of Indiana soldiers that served.
