I have been researching the Harkraders for some 30 years.I have found so many answers on this site that I am posting some of my information.There has been so much activity on David that he is first. J=Johannas, the immigrant 2=David David sons are J2-number. Daus J2-letter. Mrs Heggie wrote that David, son of Conrad, moved to McMinn Co TN . =43=However, according to the court records settling Conrad’s estate, Conrad did not have a son,David. David did live in Franklin County for some time close to Conrad.It would be easy to confuse the relationship after so many generations.Although I do not have a paper trail for this David Harkrader from the Russel County Virginia deed (which identifies him as the son of John of Pipe Creek) to his Franklin County VA residence, I believe he is my “lost” David, son of John, and I am placing him as such in my records until someone can disprove the relationship
