      Notes Individual: Following is a 1998 correspondence with rmBishop@aol.com (Robert M. Bishop, 311 E. Walnut St. Avon Park, FL 33825: "John Harmon Sr. - our ancestor - was a mariner who sailed on the ship Bachelor from London to Boston in August 1835 seeking employment in the colonies... John Harmon Jr. - our ancestor - and his wife, Mary Dorchester, remained in Springfield where both were born, 1641 and abt 1645, respectively. They were married 7 Jan 1668/9. We have data on four children. Page 160 of Harmon Genealogy (by Artemus Harmon) should be consulted for the others.

John and Mary died within a few days of each other in Feb 17 11/12."
