William Fremont Harn
     William Fremont Harn was born on 1 June 1859 at Wooster, Wayne Co., Ohio.2,3 He was the son of George Upton Harn and Mary Ann Bricker. William Fremont Harn married Alice Moores, daughter of Dr. Thomas J. Moores and Lavernia Ogden, on 27 December 1881 at Mohican, Ashland Co., Ohio.4,3 William Fremont Harn died on 15 December 1944 at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Co., Oklahoma, at age 85.5 He was buried at Fairlawn Cemetery, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Co., Oklahoma.
     William Fremont Harn was a Attorney. He graduated in June 1880 at Wooster University, Wayne Co., Ohio.

W.F. Harn, son of Capt. George W. Harn, of Co. I, 16th O.V.I., who was killed at the battle of Chickasaw Bayou in December 1862, is a candidate for representative on the Republican ticket in Oklahoma Territory. Mr. Harn will be remembered as an old Wooster boy and was in the newspaper business at Mansfield for many years. Mrs. Harn was a former resident of Lake township.6 He lived in 1943 at 313 NE 16, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Co., Oklahoma; This later became the site of the Harn Museum. Adopted and reared 2 children of her sister: Dudley Morres Willson and Florence Ogden Wilson.3 William and Alice had a son that died in infancy.

The following is from the book, STATE OF OKLAHOMA, volume I, 1910, by Luther B. Hill, published by Lewis Publishing Company, page 36-38.
William F. Harn. The country lying adjacent to Oklahoma City on the northeast is now in process of development as suburban additions, and with the extension of transportation facilities to this part of the city, real estate values will rise and property became as popular here as in any other section. One of the men to whose enterprise many of these improvements are due is William F. Harn, a well known capitalist and real estate man of Oklahoma City. He brought and promoted Harndale addition, consisting of thirty acres, lying near Epworth University and intersected by Classen boulevard. About ten years ago he acquired the ownership of a quarter section lying north of Maywood addition and fronting south on Sixteenth street, where developments are in progress that will convert this into one of the most valuable and attractive parts of the city. On the east this high-class residence district will be skirted by the new Lincoln boulevard, which will be built north from the Lincoln school for a distance of four or five miles. Mr. Harn, J.J. Culbertson and others are associated in the building of a street railway line to reach this property, their intention being to give the same boom to this northeast section of the city that the Oklahoma Street Railway Company has given to the northwest section. In the new Harn addition trees have been planted everywhere, which will have reached nearly full growth by the time the lots are placed on the market. Pavements, sidewalks, sewers and other improvements will be put under way of construction before this addition is formally opened. In various other ways, Mr. Harn has taken an important part in building up Oklahoma City. Long before the future of this city was assured as it now is, he has given evidence of his strong faith in the possibilities of its growth and expansion.
In the early years of his residence in Oklahoma City, Mr. Harn was best known for his prominence for his prominence as a government official and as a lawyer. He was born in Wooster, Ohio, and graduated from Wooster University in 1880. Having read law under private tutors, he was admitted to the bar by the supreme court of Ohio in 1881. While in the practice of law, Mr. Harn conducted some of the most important lawsuits pending in the courts and was unusually successful. Large fees in these cases were the foundation of his large real estate interests, which, conservatively estimated, now greatly exceed a million dollars in actual value. Though he practiced in Ohio for several years, he was best known as a newspaper man, being editor and one of the owners of the morning paper at Mansfield. Through the instrumentality of the late Senator John Sherman of Ohio, he was appointed, as special agent of the department of interior to assist in the prosecution of perjury cases in connection with homestead entries in Oklahoma. This was in 1891, two years after the opening of the territory, and the courts were burdened with bitterly contested suits over the ownership of land. During the first year of his residence in Oklahoma City, Mr. Harn gave all his time to the secret work of his position, especially the securing of testimony for the conviction of the perjurers whose deceit had rendered the establishment of legal titles so difficult.
... As it was, these falsifiers and illegal claimants were defeated in nearly every case, and for this wholesome outcome such officials of the federal department as Mr. Harn deserve the gratitude of Oklahomans for their efficient and arduous labors in establishing just claims and bringing about law and order. Perjury was often accompanied by murder, and the strife and litigation cost the participants hundreds of thousands of dollars, which was so much subtracted from the capital available for the development of the new country. It is said that nearly every claim of prospective value within ten or fifteen miles of Oklahoma City was in dispute and litigation, and to prove the just merits of each case was a toil whose final accomplishment has few parallels in the history of land claims.
After leaving the service of the interior department, Mr. Harn began the practice of law in Oklahoma City. During one year he was clerk of the United States district court at Perry, and other places. This appointment was made by President McKinley, as a personal recognition to Mr. Harn for securing the Oklahoma delegation that helped to nominate him at St. Louis in 1896, President McKinley's interests in Oklahoma having been placed exclusively in the hands of Mr. Harn by Mark A. Hanna. With this exception he has been a resident of Oklahoma City since 1891. Mr. Harn has been actively engaged in politics from the day of his arrival in Oklahoma, but has seldom sought public office. In 1904 he was nominated by the Republicans of Oklahoma county for the Territorial Legislature by acclamation. In the contest he polled his full party vote, but was defeated by a small plurality. He was one of two persons that was called into consultation with Arthur I. Vorys and others at Kansas City, prior to the Oklahoma state convention for the purpose of laying plans to further the interest of Wm H. Taft for the presidency. And it was largely through his influence that the Oklahoma delegation was instructed for Taft.
Mr. Harn is always among the largest contributors of money and time towards public enterprises. He alone induced the Mississippi Valley Trust Company of St. Louis, and the Denver, Enid & Gulf Railroad Company to agree to build the latter railroad from a point northwest of Guthrie to Oklahoma City, paralleling the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway for about thirty miles and to construct a terminal railroad in Oklahoma City to accommodate five new railroads. The Denver, Enid & Gulf Railroad Company was to receive a bonus of sixty thousand dollars, all of which was raised. Some delay was caused by promoters of other roads, who desired to be considered in the drawing of the leases, although the officials of the D., E. & G. R.R. Co. were urging the closing up of the contract, and before the citizens of Oklahoma City fully realized the importance of immediately signing up the papers, the D., E.G. R.R. was sold in a night to the Santa Fe, which thus got rid of what would otherwise have proved a dangerous rival.
Mr. Harn was married in Ohio, 1882, to Miss Alice, daughter of Dr. Thos. Moores, of Mohican, Ashland county, Ohio.

The following is from the book, STATE OF OKLAHOMA, volume I, 1910, by Luther B. Hill, published by Lewis Publishing Company, page 254-261, contained an article on Sooner and Perjury Cases by W. F. Harn.
The first grand jury that sat in the United States side of the territorial court in January, 1891, brought in seventy-five indictments for perjury. The first few trials consumed as much as four weeks each, day and night, and were fought desperately by the several defendants and their attorneys. A conspiracy was unearthed, in which it was planned to dynamite the court house for the purpose of killing Judge Clark, United States Attorney Speed and Special Agent Harn, but the plans of the assassins were thwarted by the early discovery of the details through a confession of one of the accused, who subsequently served time in prison for murder. A bomb was thrown under the house of Special Agent Harn, but the fuse was put out by the bomb striking some bushes. At another time Deputy United States Marshall Frank Cochran stayed the hand of a defendant perjurer's son-in-law, as the latter was about to plunge a dirk (long straight-bladed dagger) into the back of Special Agent Harn, as the latter was leaving the court room. Other instances of this kind, never publicly made known, were numerous and frequent.

The following is from the book OKLAHOMA AND THE MID-CONTINENT OIL FIELD, published in 1930 by the James O. Jones Company, page 228,229,441.
Individualist though he is, William Fremont Harn has never been unwilling to join his neighbors, or fellow-townsmen, in a move that was intended to promote the general welfare. He did not hesitate, when Oklahoma City was considered as the site for the capital, to donate as much as three-hundred and twenty-thousand dollars worth of land as the site. Alice Harn Park was his gift to the children of Oklahoma City. Harndale, as an addition, is unsurpassed for the beauty of its homes.
But when he is seen as the victim of State which has not respected his contracts, and the butt of attacks which have no justification, the wonder is that the former lawyer, and present capitalist, is not in the least bit embittered. He smiles as broadly now as he did the day he landed in Oklahoma City- about the first of January, 1891.
He confounds the belief that "lone wolves" are unpopular, for among the folks who know him, he is a much-liked man. "Always," he asserts, "I have played a lone hand, and managed my affairs in the way I saw fit. If persistency is a vice I must confess that I am vicious. But whoever won nothing without displaying some persistency?"
He learned to be persistent, industrious, and ambitious, as the son of a captain who died in the forces of the North in the Civil War. Mary Ann (Bricker) Harn, whom George Upton Harn had married, was one to see to her son's education however difficult it was to do. The boy which had come into the world on June 1, 1859, was not slow to learn, and when he was graduated from high school in his native town of Wooster, Ohio, he had decided to become an attorney.
As President of his class, in one of the literary societies in the University of Wooster, Mr. Harn was not long in winning to leadership. He was an orator on occasion, and class prophet at his graduation in June 1880, when he was the youngest to finish as a Bachelor of Philosophy. He belonged, while in college, to the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.
In his role of prophet the youthful Harn could not foresee that the political education he acquired in the offices of McClure and Smyser, lawyers at Wooster, was to do him as much good as the law he had to read. Such it proved, however.
Mr. Harn was admitted to the barn in 1881, but he went, a year later, to Mansfield, Ohio, where he joined his brother in publishing the Herald seven mornings a week. The young man had been everything from printer's helper to when the chance arrived, in December, 1890, for him to accept an appointment as Special Agent for the General Land Office. After he reached Oklahoma, in January, 1891, he caused more than one-hundred indictments to be returned by grand juries in Oklahoma City, at Guthrie, at Kingfisher, and at Wichita against claimants for land whom were charged with perjury. He helped to convict seventy-five of the defendants before William H. Harrison went out of office and Grover succeeded him. With this change of Presidents, Mr. Harn left his job as agent to open offices as an attorney, but he was not loth in the year to follow to assist the Government in the rest of the cases. So successful was the prosecution, there was not a single acquittal.
Mr. Harn had been practicing law for two or three years when he was telegraphed from Washington, by a friend, that a quarter-section of land to the Oklahoma City was open to settlement. Before night-fall Mr. Harn had succeeded both in taking possession of the property and in filing his application with the local land office. There were contests, however, and they ate into his income for years to follow.
And his income, we must say. was not always in cash, since time and again, it was necessary to take his fee in real-estate. Thus it was that he could afford, when Oklahoma had been admitted to the Union, to offer forty acres of his farm to the State. Since but seven and one-half of the forty acres would be used as a site for the capitol, Mr. Harn asked that the rest of his donation be sold by the State for residential purposes. To this the State agreed. But never since then has the contract been observed, and eighteen years, as Mr. Harn sees it, "is a mighty long time for a 'temporary building' to stand. I have been holding a hundred or more acres of my quarter section to realize something on it, depending upon the State to keeps its word. It hasn't. So I intend now to use it as the site of one or more oil wells. Can a derrick be more unsightly, in the neighborhood of the capitol, than the mule barns, the hot-dog stands, and the garages which are now to be found there?"
Mr. Harn gave up his practice of law when the management of his property began to occupy most of his time. The Harn Building erected on the site of his first home in the City, was for many years the headquarters of the United States Veterans Bureau.
To Mr. Harn and his wife, who was Alice Moores before her marriage at Mohican, Ohio, in 1881, was born a son which died in infancy. Dudley Moores Wilson, and Florence Ogden Wilson, children of Mrs. Harn's sister, were reared in the lawyer's home. Home: 301 East Seventeenth Street. Office: Harn Building.

Following obituary from THE DAILY OKLAHOMAN newspaper, 16Dec1944, pg 3, col 1.
William Fremont Harn, Oklahoma City pioneer and capitalist died of heart disease Friday afternoon at his home, 301 NE 17, on the most valuable piece of farm land in the state. He had been confined to his bed more than six years with heart disease and became critical about 10 days ago.
The man who in 1911 gave the state 40 acres for the state on which the capitol now stands, died without realizing his dream of having his farm southwest of the capitol platted as one of the city's finest residential sections.
Harn acquired the 160-acre farm in 1892 for $1.25 an acre under the homestead laws. At the time of his death this tract contained 90 acres and was bordered by Lincoln boulevard and Santa Fe tracks, east and west, NE 21 on the north and a line half-way between NE 16 and NE 17 on the south. A portion reaches to NE 23. His offer of a 120-foot diagonal strip across his farm for a boulevard approach to the capitol from Broadway was new accepted because city and state officials could never agree on who ought to pay for the paving.
Harn was born June 1, 1859, in Wooster, Ohio, and was the youngest graduate of the 1880 at the University of Wooster. He was admitted to the bar in Ohio in 1881. The following year he married Miss Alice Moores of Mohican, Ohio. They had one son who died in infancy.
He was co-publisher with his brother of the daily Mansfield, Ohio, Herald almost eight years prior to coming to Oklahoma City. Harn came to Oklahoma City in January 1891, as special agent of the general land office to assist in the prosecution of perjury involving lands in Oklahoma Territory. In one year he caused more than 100 indictments to be returned by United States grand juries in the courts at Oklahoma City, Guthrie and Wichita, Kan.
President William H. McKinley appointed Harn clerk of the U.S. district court in Perry as personal recognition for Harn's securing the Oklahoma delegation that helped nominate McKinley in St. Louis in 1896. Harn returned to his private law practice after one year. Cash was scarce in those early days and Harn was obliged frequently to take part of his fees in real estate. The Harn building, 218-24 NW 3, is on the site of their original home. Land for the present Federal Reserve bank building was purchased from Harn.
Shortly after oil was struck in 1928 in the south Oklahoma City field, Harn leased part of his homestead for oil development. Almost immediately the city brought the land into the city limits and ruled it was not zoned for oil, thus temporarily blocking his attempt to have wells drilled.
For years, Harn was undecided whether to turn the property over to oil development or to a fine residential area, alternately bickering with the city for permission to drill and urging the state to accept his offer of the diagonal boulevard.
At the time of Harn's death, the property held two houses (one the old family home built in 1900 and the other a smaller house occupied by his nephew, George U. Harn), and 10 oil wells. The state took 16 1/2 acres of his property by condemnation for Lincoln Terrace drive and a block matching the Historical building site, then later disputed his claim to the mineral rights under that 16 1/2 acres. Meanwhile, Harn allowed two Negroes to cultivate the farm for two years, their corn, cotton and vegetables flourishing almost in the shadows of the capitol.
In 1909, Mr. and Mrs. Harn platted Harndale, a 30-acre tract on the west side of the city. A 5-acre park in the center is known as Alice Harn park. Mrs. Harn, an artist of considerable talent, died May 5, 1931, and is buried in Mohican.
Harn's philanthropies included annual gifts to the YWCA in memory of his wife, and memorial scholarships at Oklahoma City University and his alma mater. He had supported the Oklahoma State Symphony from its beginning. He was a member of the bar association, Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, Phi Delta Theta fraternity and still retained membership in the Wooster church of which his father was once pastor.
Services will be in the Smith and Kernke funeral home at 2 p.m. Monday. Burial will be in Fairlawn cemetery. Survivors include a niece Miss Florence O. Wilson, home address, and a nephew Dudley M. Wilson, Plano, Texas, whom the Harns reared from childhood; a nephew George U. Harn Sr., 307 NE 17; a cousin, Mrs. M.C. Clayton, Mountain Lake Park, Md; a grand-niece, Jane D. Harn, and four grand-nephews, George U. Harn Jr. and Edward J., both of Oklahoma City John Robert, Sheppard field, Texas, and Wesley F., Alhambra, Calif.

The following is from THE CHRONICLES OF OKLAHOMA, Volume XLVII, Number 4, Winter 1969-1970, page 462:
"A presentation of the William Fremont Harn Memorial Collection was made to the Oklahoma Historical Society by President George H. Shirk. This collection, he said, is the gift of William F. Harn's niece, Miss Florence O. Wilson. One-half of the State Capitol is located on land homesteaded by Harn. The collection contains at least a half million pages. Miss Mary Mahood of Edmond is working with Mrs. Simpson in organizing the material so that it may be used by researchers."

The following is from THE CHRONICLES OF OKLAHOMA, Volume LI, Number 2, Summer 1973, page 246-248:
"Annual Meeting of the Oklahoma Historical Society April 26, 1973. In 1969, Miss Florence O. Wilson first advised the Society that she wished to make a contribution of the personal files of her uncle, William F. Harn, to the Society. Mr. Harn had been appointed by President Benjamin Harrison as Special Agent to the Land Office in Oklahoma City in 1891 and during his lifetime had collected an entire attic of papers and files relating to early-day Oklahoma City. For this contribution, the Board has created Miss Wilson an Honorary Life Member of the Society-only the sixth such membership accorded by the Board in the past twenty years. The William Fremont Harn Memorial Research Collection has been referred to as the 'mother lode' of Oklahoma City history. Accession of the large collection is now underway."

PRESENTATION OF AN HONORARY MEMBERSHIP TO FLORENCE O. WILSON (response)
"Mr. Shirk, President, Members of the Oklahoma Historical Society and Friends. Thank you for this high honor of an Honorary Life Membership in the Oklahoma Historical Society and for your kind friendships.
First may I tell you just a little of the heritage that brought this all about? As members of William Fremont Harn's immediate family, Jane Harn McCarty, his grand-niece, and I, his niece, are deeply grateful for the fine recognition that Mr. Harn has received as a prominent pioneer citizen, builder and planner, and for the formal acknowledgment from the Historical Society of his early-day records. They are now a part of the Society Historical Files and are known as the William Fremont Harn Memorial Research Collection. We thank Mr. Shirk for his interest and concern in helping to assemble this historical material for a curator to organize. The Collection is now available for reference and for study. These records carry on some of the heritage Mr. Harn left us. Perhaps they also reflect a little of his stern, independent, determined personality and some of his ideals.
As many of you may know, Mr. Harn came to Oklahoma in January 1891, the appointee of President Benjamin Harrison, as Special Agent to the Land Office here, for the pursuit and prosecution of the Sooners-a hazardous and colorful assignment. The record shows that during Mr. Harn's period of service no offender was acquitted. He followed his law career until his retirement. When the State Capitol was move from Guthrie to Oklahoma City, Mr. Harn gave to the State, toward a new Capitol site, 40 acres of his farm land just west of the present Capitol Building. Harndale Addition and Alice Harn Park bear the Family Name. The Grand Boulevard, which once encircled the City, was Mr. Harn's idea. The new Federal Reserve Bank Building, opposite the Third Street Post Office, stands on the site of the Harn's first Oklahoma City home, a rose covered cottage, which took Mrs. Harn's artistic eye. In the intervening years the four story red brick Harn office Building stood there. Now the old farm homestead has been designated an 'historical site' and is to become a Pioneer Museum, surrounded by the William Fremont Harn Gardens. And so today we honor Mr. Harn.
For me, it is indeed a rare privilege to receive this gift of a Life Membership in this distinguished Society. There are scarcely words adequate to express my deep appreciation. That it comes to me through such sources enhances its value. It is in itself a rich and treasured heritage. Again my grateful thanks to all of you for this honor and for your interest and kindness in coming to be with us."

William Fremont Harn
A Brief Biography
William Fremont Harn was born June 1, 1859, in Wooster, Ohio, the son of Mary Anne Bricker Harn and George Upton Harn. His father was a Church of God minister and a captain in the Union forces. He was killed during the Civil War at the Battle of Vicksburg, and Mrs. Harn was left to raise her sons, William and George, alone.

A strong believer in education, Mrs. Harn made sure that both boys pursued professional careers. William graduated from the University of Wooster in June of 1880, with a bachelor's degree in philosophy. He then "read" law under private tutors and was admitted to the Ohio bar in 1881.

In 1882, Harn married Alice Moores of Mohican, Ohio, an artist who had studied in New York and who continued to paint throughout her life. The Harns then moved to Mansfield, Ohio, in the first year of their marriage.

There Mr. Harn went to work for his brother, George, who was the owner and editor of the strongly Republican newspaper, The Mansfield Herald. At this time, William began his lifelong participation in Republican politics.

As a reward for his efforts on behalf of the Ohio Republican Party, Harn was appointed as Special Agent to Oklahoma for the General Land Office, Department of the Interior, in December of 1890. As Special Agent, he was charged with conducting behind-the-scenes investigations of claim disputes arising from the Run of 1889 -- many of which involved cases or perjury and "Soonerism."

Mr. Harn arrived in Oklahoma in January of 1891 and proceeded to investigate more than 100 disputes. His work led to more than 75 convictions and a degree of unpopularity among certain residents of the future city. It was also in 1891 that Mr. Harn acquired, from an Illinois couple, the present Homestead land as part of a "relinquished" quarter section that had been originally claimed in the Run of '89.

In 1892, Grover Cleveland succeeded President Benjamin Harrison. With the Republicans out of office for the moment, Harn left his position as Special Agent and opened a private law practice. He continued his practice until he was appointed clerk for the fourth judicial district, Perry. This was a "plum" clerkship that paid well above the clerkships in the adjacent districts, and there were charges and countercharges flung about concerning Harn's appointment. The situation was resolved when Harn was tricked out of the job by dirty politics and a judge that didn't want him in the position. It was then that Harn tried, and failed, to obtain an appointment as federal Marshal.

William Harn resumed his law practice but became increasingly involved in both real estate and railroads for the growing Oklahoma City. In 1902, he served as President of the Railroads Committee for the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, charged with attracting additional rail lines to the area. He also became a partner in the Citizens Traction Company, an interurban railway system established to compete with the trolley companies of Mr. Shartel and Mr. Classen, among others. Harn built the "Yellow Mule" line that ran from the intersection of 16th and Robinson to NE 50th Street.

In 1904, construction on the present Harn house was begun, and Mr. and Mrs. Harn moved to the property from their former home on 2nd Street. In this year, Mr. Harn made an unsuccessful attempt to gain a seat in the Territorial House of Representatives.

In 1910, Harn donated 40 acres of land to the state for the site of the Capitol. The Capitol was eventually constructed on approximately 10 acres of his land and another 10 acres donated by adjacent landowner, Mr. Culbertson.

In his later years, William Fremont Harn concentrated his efforts on real estate, remaining active until felled by illness in the late 1930's. He died in 1944.

     William Tyler Duval Harn was born on 7 May 1838 at Hagerstown, Frederick Co., Maryland.1,2 He was the son of Levi Orendorf Harn and Zerua Ann Duval. William Tyler Duval Harn married Mary Agnes Duer, daughter of Johann Christian Friedrich Duer and Mary Stanley, on 11 July 1861 at Rose Hill, Harris Co., Texas.3 William Tyler Duval Harn died on 28 May 1897 at McLennan Co., Texas, at age 59.3 He was buried on 29 May 1897 at Oakwood Cemetery, Waco, McLennan Co., Texas; Plot: Block 9. Lot 26.3
     William Tyler Duval Harn was a Farmer, Bookkeeper. He lived in 1893 at Waco, McLennan Co., Texas.

Mary Agnes Duer Harn filed for a Texas Confederate Widow's Application for a Pension on 27 Oct 1923, it was approved on 08 Nov 1923, and a pension was allowed from 01 Sep 1923 until her death in 1925. This pension was "For Use of Widows of Soldiers Who Are in Indigent Circumstances."
In the pension application she made a series of sworn statements:
That her husband, William Tyler Duval Harn, who died on 28 May 1897. His command was originally organized in Harris Co., Texas. He served four years; enlisted first of was, discharged 25 May 1865. He was in the Calvary service as a First Lieutenant when company organized, made Captain on 31 Jul 1864, the rank he continued until the end of the war.

Part of the pension application included an Affidavit of Witnesses for Bradford Hancock taken on 28 Aug 1923. He stated the following:
"I served in the same Regiment with Capt. W. Tyler D. Harn, being 26th, Texas Calvary, in which X.B. DeBray was Colonel, Capt. Harn was a First Lieutenant of Texas, E. 26th, Texas Calvary, DeBray Regiment, and was promoted to Captain of said Company, July 31st, 1864. I know these facts from a personal acquaintance with Capt. Harn while in the service of the Confederate Army, and for many years while we both lived in Texas after the war, the name is spelled Horn in some of the rolls that were made of this Regiment, but Harn is the proper name, and W. Tyler D. Harn was the person enlisted in said Company, as the W. Tyler D. Harn in said Company and Regiment."

Part of the pension application included copy of the military record of W. Tyler D. Harn:
"War Department, The Adjutant General's Office, Washington, 02 Nov 1923
William T.D. Harn, 1st. Lt. & Capt. Co. E, 26th. (Debrays) Tex. Cav. C.S.A. Enlisted Oct. 1, also shown, Oct. 5, 1861, at Hockley, and on muster roll Jan. & Feb. 1864 (last on file) is shown, Absent detached service, as A.Q.M. at Perrys Landing Dec. 13, 1863, by order of Maj. Gen. Magruder. The name T.D. Harn, Capt. Co. E, 26th. Tex. Cav. Appear and he is shown present for duty at Richmond, on Regtl Return for Mar. 1865. No later record has been found."

Part of the pension application included copy of burial notice for Col. Tyler D. Harn:
"Waco, Texas, May 29, The funeral and burial of Col. Tyler D. Harn, this afternoon, at Oakwood, was attended by his comrades of Pat Uleburne Camp, and veterans of neighboring camps, as well as Union Veterans. Col. Harn's title as Colonel was a militia preferment by the governor after peace was restored.
He served during the war in the twenty-sixth Texas Calvary, commanded by DeBray, and by gallantry won a Captain's commission. He brought away from the army, after the surrender, his broadsword, spurs, camp-knife, and the colors of his regiment, all of which were in sight and lent interest to the funeral today. After the stroke of paralysis yesterday, he never recovered.
The last few murmurings that escaped his lips related to incidents of the war in which he participated. His walls were hung with pictures of Generals Lee, Stuart Jackson, Beauregard and other Southern commanders. All his surroundings were indicative of the bent of his mind, which was military and Southern to a high degree.
He was buried near the Confederate monument, Rev. Frank Page, the chaplain of the Pat Cleburne Camp, officiating, and his grave was decorated by his comrades of the group and the veterans of the blue, by whom he was highly esteemed."3
