They came to Brooklynwhen Laura and Andy were born.Hi Tamara,Thanks so much for sending me the info on Amasa and Rose. I wasable to pick up some of this from your postings on Ancestry, butnot all the details you've just sent. From what I can tell,Amasa and Rose must have been married up in Dear Isle, Maine atthe South Park, Me. church? I was looking in Connecticut,figuring it was where the daughter Rose was born. Thanks too for the other email about Rose & Amasa Jr. inBrooklyn. The fact that young Rose kicked her mother and brotherout of their own house seems very consistent with somerecollections of the family patterns observed by my greataunt.... Helen Manning Mayo. I'm enclosing a link to an AcrobatReader "PDF" file named "Nellie." My grandmother (on myMother's side), Mary Helen (Manning) Baker and Helen M. Mayowere sisters. As I think I mentioned, their mother Helen"Nellie" (Harlan) Manning and your 'Rose Etta Harlan' weresisters. Helen M. Mayo wrote this (7 page) piece called"Nellie" around 1980 or 1981. She also wrote another parallel(8-page) piece called "Jimmie"(Jimmie was James J. Manning...Nellie's husband) around the same time. This one was 'edited asis were' by my grandmother Mary H. (Manning) Baker in January of1981. You can read 'Nellie' with a 'slight grain of salt' as mygrandmother had to correct a few facts in the "Jimmie" piece.Jimmie Manning and Nellie Harlan were their parents... and"Nellie Harlan's" father was of course Andrew "Thomas" Harlan.Nellie's mother was Jane Callen... or Collins and Nellie wasdefinitely born in Ireland, we believe in 1883 and came herewith her Mother, Father, and older sister Rose and olderbrothers Peter and Thomas within 6 weeks of her birth... or sothe family history has been told. We don't have any of the details, or anyway to verify any ofthis, but family lore has it that "Nellie" 'hated the English'because they killed two of her brothers. We also don't know ifRose's mother... Andrew Thomas' first wife...., was the motherof these two other Harlan sons... or if they were by his secondwife Jane. We do know that Rose's younger brothers (or step-brothers) Peterand Thomas were also born in Ireland. Peter was either born,Sept. 5, 1880, or Sept. 5, 1877, depending upon which recordsyou believe... his WWI Draft registration (1877), or his deathcertificate (1880). The next son Thomas was born Sept. 8, 1881in Ireland according to his WWI draft record. Because both ofthem and my great grandmother "Nellie" were all born in Ireland,we are all but 100% sure that Rose Etta was born in Ireland too,as she appears to be the oldest sibling of the group. That makesyour notation on Ancestry about her possibly being born inCounty Cork the most interesting piece of info we hadn't foundbefore. It does 'not' seem possible that she was born in NewHampshire, or Maine. Andrew Thomas and Jane Callen Harlan had at least 12 children,plus Rose and possibly two more sons who may have died inIreland means that Andrew Thomas Harlan had a lot of children.Helen Mayo's daughter Charlene Mayo (my 2nd. cousin) sent mesome birth and death info on many of the other Harlans, but Ihaven't yet scanned all these into my computer. When I do, I'llpost these up on an access page and send you a link . Anyway here is the link to the "Nellie" page. On the very lastpage you'll see a paragraph where my great aunt "Helen Mayo"describes a visit by her aunt "Rose Harlan Lane" and her cousin"Laura" back in the 1920's or 1930's. King
