Andrew Harman's funeral sermon was preached by Rev. James Edens, Sr. who came to the Hix Settlement by way of Daniel Boone's trail which was a chopped out way that led from Elizabethton, TN up Watauga River via Beech Creek and Windy Gap.
Rev. Edens was an Englishman who immigrated to Baltimore, MD around 1762 with his brothers Robert (later Governor of Maryland), Charles (later
Governor of North Carolina) and John. Around 1770, he settled in Carter County, TN and became the first preacher there. Rev. Edens was a Baptist minister and his Bible, which is still in the possession of his decendants, was published in England in 1698. During the Revolutionary War, Rev. Edens was detailed to help guard the women and children at the Watauga Settlement.

However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Andrew:
