Basic genealogy info: HARBEIN, JOHN, was born in Washington county, Maryland, January 17th, 1804, and was the oldest of the six children of Daniel and Elizabeth (Reber) Harbein. ... The great need of the county in those days were good public roads and railroads, to secure which he worked hard and contributed largely. Owing to the poor roads, it was not easy for the early settlers to procure medical aid, and Mr. Harbein for years was frequently called on to use โ€˜the lancet and supply medicines himself. While developing his business interests, he did not neglect his farm, which steadily improved. He was a strong believer in the use of fertilizers, and through his liberal supply of ground bone, plaster, etc., to tenants, which seemed extravagant, still the increased crops and improved soil more than compensated. He introduced the wheat now so largely raised, and generally known as the โ€œ Mediterranean," into the West, and had he lived a year or two longer the traveler over the railroad crossing his farm might have seen beautiful fields of white poppies, as he had made arrangements to try opium culture. Mr. Harbein not only had the discouraging features of a new undeveloped country to overcome, but had to resist the depressing influence of the oft-volunteered warning of older well wishing settlers, but people of less advanced views, who would tell him in great seriousness that "wise men may dream of mammoth mills, but only the foolish would try to realize the dream;" the "minnow will swallow the whale," and other sayings of like tenor. Still the mills went up, and house after house was built, until he became proprietor of a large distillery, flouring mills, saw mill, woolen factory, oil mill, and many houses and large tracts of land in Ohio and some of the Western States. When he made his first barrel of flour he branded it "Alpha," from which the neighboring post-office (a mile distant) took its name, and though now it is removed to the village of Harbein, still retains it.
