Harmon (my paternal great-great grandfather) was a son of Robert and Lucinda (Russell) Alcorn and was born circa 1832 in Jackson County, TN.
He had several siblings including Anna Minerva "Annie" Alcorn Brakefield, Elizabeth Elliott Alcorn Pyrtle, Madison (b. circa 1840), Robert (1842-1933) and Riley (b. circa 1845). There were others born before Harmon, but their names are unknown at this time.
Harmon married Elvira Smith (daughter of Hugh and Ann Smith) on June 7, 1856 in DeKalb Co., TN. Prior to the birth of their first child, my paternal great-grandfather Lafayette on July 31,1858, they moved to Washington Co., MO along with Harmon's and Elvira's parents.
Harmon and Elvira were among the first settlers to co-found the Emmaus Missionary Baptist Church in Courtois, Washington Co., MO on February 11, 1861. A photo of the church is on this memorial and Harmon and Elvira are buried in the cemetery on the church grounds.
