Descendants of David K Harling (Harlan) of Edgefield County, South Carolina

Updating the various family trees I posted a few years ago has been a long overdue task. These trees have grown so large, that a nice graphical representation is impossible. So…back to using the traditional generational list format.

Family Tree Key:

This family tree is arranged by generations. The numbers that appear before are name refer to generations.

For instance:

  1. John Smith (The ancestor whose descendants have been documented)
  2. Adam Smith (This is the 1st generation level. He would be John Smith’s child)
  3. Carrie Smith (This is the 3rd generation level.She would be John Smith’s grand daughter)
  4. Robert Smith (This is the 4th generation level. He would be John Smith’s great grandson)
  5. Helen Smith (This is the 5th generation level. She would be John Smith’s 2x great grand daughter)
  6. Randolph Smith (This is the 6th generation level. He would be John Smith’s 3x great grand son)

Privacy Note:

I have made every effort to delete details for living people. I’ve also made every effort to delete details of people who would make it easy to find their living descendants. I may have missed a handful. If I have, please accept my apologies and let me know. I will remove them from this list of descendants.

  1. Nancy Ann Harling Johnson is my third great grandmother. In my research I found her mother’s name was Mary (1793-1889) and she had a sister Louvinia “Sissy” Harling (1815-1895). I have not yet found a connection with the family of David K. Harling before finding this webpage. I found Mary and Louvinia living in the household of Mark Johnson in 1850-https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8QF-MS3 . I found Mary Harling in the household of Mark Johnson in 1860-https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:MZTC-QFY . I found Mary again with the Johnson’s in 1870- https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M8RX-LBL and in 1880 listed as the HOH’s mother in law- https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M6SC-5GH. Also her grave in Johnson Cemetery in Saluda Co.-https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/149956414?search=true as well as Louvinia’s- https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/98420502?search=true.

    1. Very interesting! My family’s DNA, and over a year’s worth of dna triangulation by professional genetic genealogists, nailed the link between my mulatto 3x Harling great grandfather and David Harling
