    • George Frederick Harman and James (Jim) Walter Harman came to Canada from England in 1898. They lived with Paddy Nolan at Brudenell until 1902. That is where George (Pa Harman) learned to play the violin. In 1902 George came to Cobalt, Ontario and worked in the mines until he caught pnemonia. George and Jim bought farms at Heaslip. Both brothers were married in Canada. They had a sister Rose that came to Canada later and an older brother Bill who lived in the U.S.

      **************
      The 1891 Census of England shows George living with his mother's parents Horatio and Rose CONSTABLE in Canterbury according to information from Derek Ward, Hope Valley, U.K.
      **************
      The 1891 Census address for George Harman is 42 Broad Street, Canterbury according to David Harman, Tonbridge, Kent, England.

      From the Temiskaming Speaker March 10 1911 under the heading:

      Some of the boys and girls attended the ball in the Oddfellows Hall at Englehart. Mr. George Harman and Mr. Peter Flannigan acted as violinist. They are very fond of lemon pie and they absolutely refuse to play for any more parties unless they get lemon pie for lunch. Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Harman spend Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. P. Flannigan.

      Note from Irene Coules nee Harman to Dale Harman:
      Uncle George and Dad "Jim" both lived before the fire in 1922 on top of Harman's Hill, just a short distance apart. After the fire, your Grandfather George built below the hill and Dad up the road from where he had built before.

      The house foundations that were left after the fire went out in a clay slide late 1930s. It almost took the road. Dad's place is gone now "chimney fire" barn, granary, stables & sheds are all gone. They have another house on the main foundation now. Uncle George house is still there, the barn is gone. I think the relief house they built after the fire is still there. It's just down from the main house closer to the river.
