    Seven Harman brothers emigrated from Germany together, Jacob, Valentine, Mathias, George, Daniel, John, and Heinrich Adam. They first stopped off in Pennsylvania, then emigrated to the Shenandoah Valley and some on into North Carolina. At least three of these brothers settled in Southwest Virginia, namely, Heinrich Adam, Valentin and Jacob. They were living in the New River German settlement, the first settlement ever made west of the Alleghenies on the "Western Waters", and were living there prior to 1745. In 1749 Moravian Missionaries conducted the first recorded religious services in Southwest Virginia in the home of Jacob Harman, and Dr. Thomas Walker mentions stopping at the home of Harman on his memorable exploration trip in 1750.

    The Harmans were of Moravian ancestry and the Moravians in Pennsylvania knew of them. It was written "Toward noon we arrived safely at the New River. We were taken across the river to Jacob Herrman, who together with his wife, received us with great joy and love. Jacob Herrman told them that his grandfather was by birth a Moravian who had been driven from his country because of his religion." [1]
