Notes for Israel Harman:
Israel Harman appears on a Roster of Troops under Captain Daniel Smith, probably at Maiden Springs Fort, October 4, 1774 (Draper Mss 3 QQ 114).  Maiden Springs was one of seven palisaded forts erected on the order of Lord Dunmore,(June 25, 1774)  Of the seven on the Clinch erected in compliance with the order, four were on the lower Clinch, under Captain William Russell's, militia command, and three were on the upper Clinch under the militia command of Captain Daniel Smith.  The forts were erected by the local militia under the supervision of Colonel William Christian, who had been sent out to the frontier by Colonel William Preston who was militia commandant for the entire area on the Clinch River. The Roster of Troops referred to by Draper was the list of the first men to man those forts immediately after their construction.  Captain Smith reported to Colonel Preston that through fear of the Indians, Jacob Harman (Israel's father) had moved his family "into the New River Settlement."  Captain Smith also reported that upon the recommendation of Thomas Maxwell, he had appointed Israel Harman to act as a scout down
Sandy Creek.  Maiden Springs may have existed several years prior to "Dunmore's War" but not in palisaded form.

He died either in Montgomery Co., Va., or Pulaski Co., Ky.  To be verified.
