The subject of this sketch is the son of Stephen and Altic (Harmon) Fowler, who in 1800 came on to the farm now occupied by their two Sons N. Harmon and Stephen B. He was married Dec. 10, 1801, in Richmond. (then Pittstown.) and had a family of five sons and four daughters.

It was a wilderness country then, and he cleared up and brought under subjection to his sturdy will, a large farm on which he lived until his death, May 10, 1846, his wife having died March 9, 1840.

N. Harmon was married to Clarissa P. Dixon, May 6, 1847. Stephen B. married for his first wife Fidelia Stedman, October 7, 1842, who died Dec. 6, 1850, having borne him two daughters.

He was again married May 20, 1851, to Esther A. Stedman. by whom he had seven children, four of whom are now living. These two brothers occupy the fine tract of land that was settled by their father. N. Harmon has no children and his residence occupies a pleasant site about two miles from Hemlock Lake. He inherited the creditable characteristics of his lather, and the beautiful surroundings of his home testify to the good taste and industry displayed by himself and estimable wife.
