Re: Valentine Harlan/Sarah Belue
Info on Valentine Harling (note spelling) which may be connected:LAURENS COUNTY, SC WILLS, 1784-1840, Colleen Elliott, Southern Historical Press, 1988, p. 97-98, 1 Nov. 1815Inv. and Appraisal of estate of Jacob Doran--Chas. Ferguson, Jno. Vaughn, Bartley Milam, Valentine Harling, Thos. Milum, Thos. Milum, Feral (?) Milum, and Miles Ferguson were all listed as owing the estate money.The Harling and Harlan/Harlon names may be interchangable since the Milam surname is spelled differently despite the family relationship between these Milams.Penmanship, pronunciation and mixed education may be at play here.
