In this section of the web site, I like to share with you stories about any descendant of Garret Harsin, born 1753. Click on any link to view the story. I invite you to write or share published material with me! I will add it to this site. I know there are several good stories about our Harsin ancestors. If you write stories that contain names of living people, please make sure to get their permission to publish their name and stories about them. Most of these stories in this section are of our ancestors. Just moving down to Florida from Indiana this past year has me strapped as I left much of my family research in storage in Indiana. I had many good stories in my work that I left in storage. Please do not wait to send me your stories! The family waits to read them! Do not wait till later to write them as later sometimes never comes. You can use MS Word format or any txt file editor. Send the electronic file as an attached file to an email message to me. If you decide to send it to me in the U.S. mail service, use the address 1391 NW St. Lucie West Blvd #241, Port St. Lucie, FL 34986.
Come back soon! Stories will be listed here.
