Chart #9 – not yet complete
Chart #2 – not yet complete
Ref.  researched the family coming from Ireland, most likely Wexford.
Charts #46 and #86 are both from Montgomery, Hampden Co., MA.
FFA member Winchell Carroll says he believes that Harmon is the son of Thomas French (FFA Chart #9) who disappears from Guilford, CT in the mid-1790s at the same time a Thomas appears in Montgomery, MA. This Thomas French was b. 20 Aug 1762, m. Eunice Wheeler and had two children, Wealthy and Ely born 1794 and 1796. Maybe at that time he did leave and go to Montgomery. The migration path was straight north along the Connecticut River Valley, but this could be since he died in Hartford, CT, which is also straight north from Guilford.
Harmon FrenchÕs grandparents could have also been John French (FFA Chart #46) and his wife Susannah Bill who had children born between 1761 and 1774, who were Abigail, Anna, Bill, Cynthya, Dudley, John, Mary, Prudence, Sarah, and Wheeler, but no Harmon.
The Harmon French family may have resided in Montgomery, Hampden Co., MA, as early as 1799. The family also lived in Hartford, CT; Guilford, CT; Westfield, MA; Windsor, CT; New Britain, CT; and New York City.
Emeline Dowd, Harmon FrenchÕs wife, is in FFA Chart #9 – twice. Harmon French married into a French line, that of Thomas French of Guilford, CT, one of the first planters of that town. This does not actually mean that Harmon is connected to Chart #9. HarmonÕs parents are still unknown. Chart #9 is not yet complete.

THE TOWN OF MONTGOMERY, Hampden County (formerly in Hampshire County, until 1812), was established November 28, 1780, from parts of Westfield, Norwich, and Southampton. February 25, 1792, a part of Montgomery was included in the new town of Russel March 6, 1792, parts of Norwich and Southampton were annexed to Montgomery. In the 1790 census, just before Harmon was born, the population of Montgomery was 449 households, and it steadily declined until 1900 when the population was only 273 households.
1.1* HARMON FRENCH, b. ca. 1799 most likely in Montgomery, Hampden Co., MA. He also lived in Westhampton, MA, but could have been born in Guilford, CT. Ref.  says he was b. in 1806.

Harmon French of Westhampton in Feb 1825 at Montgomery, MA . Emaline d. after 1880. Harmon lived in Montgomery, MA, and is listed as a Head of Household in indexes for Massachusetts Census from 1830 thru 1840. Harmon French is mentioned in ŌEarly Families of Guilford, CT,Ķ thereby indicating he could be part of FFA Chart #9, first settlers of Guilford, CT. Emaline Dowd is listed in the Guilford, CT, records as marrying Harmon French. HarmonÕs obituary mentions his address as 521 Main St., in Hartford, CT .
Harmon is listed in Montgomery, Hampden Co., MA, in the 1830 census living with 2 males under 5 (Henry and Horace), and Harmon being age 30-40. This would indicate that Harmon was born between 1790-1800. He was also living with 1 female under 5 (Betsy), 1 female 5-10 (Maryette), and his wife aged between 20-30, and an elderly woman age 80-90. In the 1840 census of the same town, he is listed with 1 male 5-10 (Hezekiah), 2 males 10-15 (Henry and Horace), and Harmon was between 40 and 50. He also lived with 2 females under 5 (Emily and Josephine) and 2 females 10-15 (Betsy and Eunice)), 1 female 15-20 (Maryette), and his wife 40-50. Later in 1850, Harmon (spelled Harmond) and Emeline French lived in Hartford, CT, with the family of Sylvester and Olive Harend. Harmon was aged 50, a cordwainer, born in CT. Emeline was age 49, born in CT.
Twin Emeline Dowd married Harmon French, and her sister twin Eveline Dowd married Timothy Clark of Montgomery, MA on 6 Oct 1822 .
