See "Thirty Thousand Names of Immigrants inPennsylvania, 1727-1776," DPL G929.3 R878cog 19 65, page 193.

HISTORY: Simon was a school teacher and Lutheran minister who performedmany marriages in She nandoah County. See Notebook III, pages 39-42.

E.E. Keister reported in his book, "Strasburg, Virginia and The KeisterFamily", published i n 1972, FHL 975.595/S1 D2k, page 51: "ShenandoahCounty court records reveal that Harr perfor med 368 marriages between1781 and 1796. However, Harr's chief mission was that of ministeri ng tothe needs of the children of the community in the church's littleparochial school whic h stood on Queen Street next to the old communitycemetery where the Mt. Zion Methodist Churc h now stands." On page 14:"The Lutherans opened a regular school with a salaried teacher, S imonHarr, who was much esteemed by the head of the Lutheran Church inAmerica, Henry Melchio r Muhlenberg. Harr also provided services andreadings for the congregation." See V-3b NO TE: It is an excellentsource for background information.

In the book, "A History of the Lutheran Church in Virginia and EastTennessee", Cassell, 1930 , DPL 929.1755 C272hi, on page 26 was reported:"We must follow the Lutheran pioneers in ou r narration for they did notstop in southwest Virginia, but continued their difficult journe ythroughout the southwest counties of Tennessee...Some of the Virginiasettlers did not hav e far to go to find homes in Sullivan County,Tenn...In Sullivan County lived the following L utherans: Simon Haar(Harr), John Harr,...(p. 27) "Four great families made the Lutheran Church prosper..Decks, Hanchers, Harrs and Senakers. " (p. 28). See H-29,#3. NOTE: No specifi c dates were given on pages 26-28, but the 1700'sthrough 1793 were mentioned on page 25.

Simon is also mentioned in the book "Twenty-five Chapters on theShenandoah Valley", publishe d 1957; FHL 975.59 H2w, page 138. By 1782marriages were being performed by Simon Harr and o thers. See H-24, #5.

Following are notes from Paul E. Lawrence received September 1998.

FIRST MARRIAGE: From Paul Lawrence: My Harr information indicates thatSimon Harr was born ab out 1725 in Prussia. His name was actually HansJacob Haar on the passenger list of the shi p Chesterfield which arrivedfrom Rotterdam on 2 Sep. 1749. He married his first wife Elizab eth about1756 in Pennsylvania. She also was born in Germany. Elizabeth died 18Oct. 1774 i n Strasburg, Shenandoah Co., Virginia. See H-29, #3.

On Nov. 1, 1757, at Winchester, Frederick County, Virginia, Jacob Harr,bought from T. Phill ip Rameath essential items for living and furnishinga dwelling including a large Dutch Bible , spinning wheel, carpentertools, wagon, horses, cows, and farm equipment. No other recor d of aJacob Harr has been found in records searched. On July 17, 1778 and Nov.16, 1778, Si mon Harr bought 3 adjoining lots fronting on the east sideof Washington Street running nort h from Wolfe Street, in Winchester,Frederick County, Virginia. On Aug. 3, 1779, Simon and hi s wife, Eve,sold these lots.

The tax lists for Shenandoah County, Virginia, town of Strasburg, showthe following:
Simon Harr - 1783, 1785, 1788. The tax lists of 1783 shows Simon, wifeand 5 children. Th e 1785 tax lists shows Simon, wife, 3 children,dwelling and barn.
John Harr - Son of Simon Harr - 1785, 1788. The 1785 tax lists showsJohn, wife, and one ch ild. The 1788 tax lists only showed the name ofthe household.
A 1805 tax list showed John and Joseph as males over 16.

Simon and John lived next door to each other and the renowned Lutheranminister, Paul Henkle , lived only one door away. Paul Henkle was fromPennsylvania and carried Lutheranism to th e people of the valley ofVirginia, east Tennessee, and western North Carolina, and, on occas ions,between 1785 and 1790, he preached at Immanual Lutheran Church, SullivanCounty, Tennes see. John Harr subsequently moved to the area of ImmanualChurch and became a member of Imman ual Lutheran Church.

On April 27, 1797, by order of the court of Shenandoah County, Virginia,the estate of Simo n Harr, deceased, was appraised. The estate, asinventoried and appraised showed household fu rnishings, etc. and books,including a large Dutch [probably Deutsche or German] Bible, and o theritems like those purchased by Jacob Harr in Winchester, Frederick County,Virginia, in 1 757. The inventory included several smoking pipes andaccessories. His personal property wa s appraised at a total value of147 pounds in Virginia currency, which was considerable at th e time, andthis did not include the value of land, dwelling, and other buildingstructures . He appears to have been financially sound even when hearrived in Virginia. The sale of p ersonal property in settlement of hisestate was held Apr. 28, 1797. His widow and sons, an d Lawrence Snapp,were among those purchasing items. His widow and sons took most of theboo ks in his library written both in German and English.

There is a bronze plaque at the front of St. Paul's Lutheran Church inStrasburg, Shenendoa h County, Virginia which states that "this churchwas established in 1747 by German settlers , that the congregation'sfirst school was conducted by Simon Harr beginning in 1778 until 18 15."["Tombstone Inscriptions Woodstock & Vicinity, Shenandoah Co., Virginia"]Borden, 1983 , page 317.] However, the 1815 date has to be incorrect asSimon Harr died in March 1797.

The records of St. Paul's Lutheran Church show that in March 1770 SimonHarr and his wife El izabeth were named God Parents of Catherine Schmitt,daughter of Valentine and Maria Schmitt , when Catherine was baptized.All of the church records were written in German script unti l 1830 andStrasburg, where the church was established and continues today, wasfirst named S taufferstadt.

"The History of the Lutheran Church in Virginia 1717 - 1962", byEisenburg, reflects the fol lowing about Simon Harr [CI:178:?3:CI];Droke, Report on Simon Harr:

1. That he was a worthy schoolmaster at Strasburg, Virginia.
2. That in 1763, he began correspondance with Henry M. Muhlenburg whichlasted more that 2 0 years. H. M. Muhlenberg was a renowned Lutheranminister living in Pennsylvania.
3. That when Peter Muhlenburg, son of H. M. Muhlenburg came toWoodstock, Virginia to preac h, he and Simon became good friends and thatPeter delivered letters from Simon Harr to H. M . Muhlenburg inPennsylvania.
4. That Simon Harr was a quasi-minister of the Lutheran Church.
5. That Simon Harr began teaching at Strasburg, Shenandoah County,Virginia in 1763 and clo sed his career in 1796.
6. That he taught, preached, performed baptisms and marriages, andpreached funerals. Hi s performance of 368 weddings between 1781 and1796 is of record.
7. That Simon Harr arrived in Strasburg, Virginia about 1755, and thathe served as the con gregation's first schoolmaster.
8. That his presence in the community until 1796 was unquestionablyresponsible for preserv ing solely Lutheran traditions. (He died in March1797).
9. That though no record of his ordination had been found, he had infact been a minister ( with the sanction of the church authorities inPennsylvania).

"St. Paul's Lutheran Church was destroyed by federal troops during theCivil War and was part ially restored in 1867, with complete restorationby 1897 through redesigning and additions."

"Based on the above information, Droke, in his manuscript, [CI:180:?3:CI]concluded that it i s likely that Hans Jacob Harr, the immigrant, andSimon Harr were one and the same person, an d that for some good reasonthe given name Simon was adopted or perhaps given to him by his w ife orothers, and used by him and associates."

Droke reported: "The name of an apostle of Christ was Simon." "Too, theEnglish, who governe d the colonies until 1776, customarily wanted firstnames for records purposes and Hans (Joha nnes-John) may have beenchanged to Simon avoiding problems of identity between him and his s onJohn. First name use was English custom while Germans went by second andthird given name s - Simon may have been his third given name."

"It is believed that Simon Harr and Henry M. Muhlenburg and his son,Peter, knew each other i n Pennsylvania before 1757 through work in theLutheran Church, and that, at the direction o f Henry Muhlenburg, Simoncame to St. Paul's Lutheran Church in 1757 as an emmissary of the Lutheran Church. Simon Harr arrived in the area of Winchester-Strasburgbetween 1755 and 175 7 and in 1757, in Winchester, he bought the personalproperty necessary for establishing a ho me. Records indicate that overthe period of work in this area, he was in constant touch, b y letters,with Henry M. Muhlenburg, and that, when Peter Muhlenburg, son of Henrycame to th e area in 1772 to minister to the church in Woodstock,Winchester, and other churches, Pete r and Simon were close friends."

"H. M. Muhlenburg came to Pennsylvania in 1742 and formed the Lutheranministerium which shor tly embraced the territory of what is now all ofthe states between Maine and Georgia. Man y of those Lutherans whosettled Frederick and Shenandoah Counties, Virginia from 1742 forwar dwere from his congregations at New Hanover and Trappe, Pennsylvania, andhe was particular y concerned about the churches in Virginia as evidencedby the fact that he sent his son, Pet er, to serve in the churches inFrederick and Shenandoah Counties, Virginia. As documented i n Muellerhistory, Peter Muhlenburg left the ministry during the Revolutionary Warto becom e the General of the Eighth Virginia Regiment of the ContinentalArmy."

"According to tradition, Simon Harr joined the forces commanded byGeneral Peter Muhlenburg , and served as a clerk which was the equivalentof chaplain. This likely explains Simon's pr esence in Winchester in 1778and 1779. Too, he may have been in Winchester performing churc hrestoral work. The Lutheran church in Winchester was severely damaged bymilitary actions d uring the Revolutionary War."

"However, the record shows that Simon Harr returned to his church dutiesin Strasburg after h is military stint. Brumbaugh's ["Revolutionary WarRecords"] shows Simon Harr as a clerk i n Alexander Machir's company ofStrasburg, Virginia. His military service is of record in th e archivesdepartment of the Virginia State Library, Richmond, Virginia, nationalnumber 2828 28. (The above information from Paul Lawrence, 1998.)

Also from Paul: "A deed in Shenandoah Co., Virginia dated 8 June 1780,transferred several lo ts of land held in trust by Simon Harr toFrederick Segchrist upon reaching age 21. Frederic k Segchrist is heir tothe land from Frederick Printzlar who died intestate. The transactio nmentions that "Simon Harr intermarried with Eve Harr widow & relick ofthe said Frederick P rintzlar." Shenandoah Co. Virginia Deed Books A, B,C, D 1792-1784, Vol. 1, page 365.

POSSIBLE RELATIONSHIPS: On 24 Aug 2002, Jan Gesas Hornick wrote to NancyAnn Harr Russell o f Fairmont, WV, Creekerrussell@aol.com: "Thank you fortrying to track down the obituary tha t told about Simon. I do wish wecould find proof that would either confirm or deny the rela tionshipbetween our John and Simon, the Lutheran minister. It may be a case ofone person s urmising the relationship, and then 20 others repeating thatinformation....OR it could possi bly be legitimate. One or two other ofSimon's sons were in the Monongalia County area fo r a time probably inthe early 1800's, but did not stay.

"Teri Sturm wrote in the genforum.familytreemaker.com/harr/messageswebsite on March 20, 1999 : 'There is a Mathias Harr in my family tree,but he was born around 1767. He married Mary H oge(?) on 10-28-1786 inShenandoah Co., WV. It is believed that they moved to Marion County ,WV.'"

The following notes are from Paul E. Lawrence, lawrpaul@citlink.net,received September 1998 . "It has commonly been believed that FrederickHarr and his wife moved to the Fairmont are a of Marion County,Virginia/West Virginia. A son Henry, was born March 26, 1793, who ha d ason David Porter Harr. Henry moved to Pennsylvania and thereafter Davidand other descend ants lived in Pennsylvania. [CI:184:?3:CI] Source wasAlfred Droke, 'Report on Simon Harr.'"

"Simon's possessions were inventoried following his death, though a JohnHarr is listed, it i s likely John Henry Harr, b. in 1761, son of Simonand Elizabeth, Simon's first wife. Simo n married Eve Beard or Bard in1774. Eve had previously been married to Frederick Prinzler [ Somereport the spelling to be Brouzler], who was deceased. It would appearthat they had a t least two children, possibly our John born in 1777 andDavid born about 1778. Eve died i n about 1789, which would have meantthe two boys were quite young, 11 and 12. Simon remarri ed a MargaretBaer in 1791, about two years after Eve's death.

"It should be noted that Simon's first son named John, b. 1761, was "JohnHenry Harr" and thi s John named several sons "John." John Joseph, b.1789; John Simon, b. 1791; John William, b . 1793, and a son John, b.1800, for whom I have no middle name. I have been told that amon g theseearly German-Americans, the males would usually be called by their middlenames, rath er than their first names, and that it was not unusual for afamily to have more than one liv ing child by the same first name!"

EARLY LUTHERAN RECORDS: The following information was sent by JoelThoreson, Asst. Archivist , Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, 8765W. Higgins Rd., Chicago, IL 60631-4109 via e-m ail on 14 December 2000:"I have checked a few sources, but have not been able to find much additional information on Simon Harr. We do not have much originalmaterials on the Lutheran C hurch in the East and the South, as thosesources stayed put when the ELCA was formed in 1988 . I checked a few ofthe secondary sources we have in our library:

"Simon Harr is not mentioned in Henry Melchior Muhlenberg'sCorrespondence, vol. 1, 1740-47 , but that would be too early for anycorrespondence. I do not have any additional volumes, b ut they may nothave been published yet.

"Simon Harr is also only mentioned in Muhlenberg's Journals, vol. 1-3, inone place where Muh lenberg refers to a letter received by him from Harr,but the text of the letter is not inclu ded.

"Harr is also not mentioned in History of the Lutheran Church in Virginiaand East Tennessee , 1930.

"The best source is The Lutheran Church in Virginia, 1717-1962 byWilliam E. Eisenberg, bu t you have already found that source. Since Harrwas not ordained, according to Eisenberg, h e is not included in theother histories of early Lutheran ministers in Virginia.

"From that volume (p. 21-22), however, I did find the followinginformation on the Ephrata Se ttlement:

"'Other Germans went westward beyond the confines of the ShenandoahValley proper to the Poto mac's south branch, which stretches one hundredfifty miles southward through the West Virgin ia counties of Hampshire,Hardy, Grant and Pendleton. Still others made their new homes on Patterson's creek which flows through Mineral County, W.Va., into thePotomac below Cumberland , Md.

"'Hardier spirits penetrated as far to the southwest as New river. Heretwo settlements wer e planted, wholly distinct and unrelated to eachother. The earlier one, known as the New Riv er Settlement, was in thevicinity of Price's Fork in Montgomery County... The later colony , begunin 1745 in the neighborhood of Radford, was founded by persons who hadfled from th e Sabbatarian cloisters at Ephrata, Pa. This strange andremote enterprise [meaning, I believ e, the New river settlement] wasabandoned after five years, however, some of its devotees re moving tothe Strasburg vicinity.'"

GERMAN IMMIGRATION: From the website of Gary T. Horlacher, last updatedOct 2001: "Prior to t he late 1800s there was no single country calledGermany. There were German people and ther e was a German language, butthey lived in a number of different kingdoms, principalities, du chies,etc. Each of these had its own local rulers and laws. Each of these islike a countr y of its own with its own customs, records, andparticularities."

Horlacher also wrote: "Although the term "Palatine Emigration" has beenapplied to this migra tion in general, the Germans were not only from thePalatinate (Pfalz) region. They were prim arily from protestant parts ofcentral and southern Germany which had been heavily hit in th e wars ofthe previous century. This was an era of change in central and southernGermany. Ma ny areas had been devastated during the 30 Years' War(1618-1648) and the subsequent War of L ouis XIV (1688-1697). The areashit hardest were those bordering France and along the Rhine R iver(Rheinland, Pfalz, Baden, Hessen, etc.). Many of these towns werepartially or completel y depopulated, so that new settlers were recruitedto re-settle from France (Huguenots), Swit zerland, and other parts ofGermany. As these villages slowly rebuilt and began to flourish a gain,the population quickly rose. Within about two generations there wasalready an overabu ndance of workers. Without hope of owning land ormaking a good living, the stories of possib ilities in America began tosound enticing!" www.horlacher.org/germany/

By family tradition:
Ann Harris married ?? Woods. Mr. Woods left home one day and never returned. (Indians, animals, weather, lost, by intent???) At the birth of Colbert, Ann took her family name back. Therefore, Colbert Harris might more properly be Colbert Harris Woods. No information has been found on Mr. Woods to my knowledge. Charles J. Harris Jr., 12/28, 2001
