HOWARD H. HARVEY,
East Liberty, Ohio
Say not because he did no wonderous deed,
Amassed no worldly gain.
Wrote no great book, revealed no hidden truth,
Perchance he lived in vain.
For there was grief within a thousand hearts
The hour he ceased to live;
He held the love of women and of men —
Life has no more to give.

The following is an outline of a branch of the Harvey family of Amer-
ica. It is lierhaps not wholly complete; but it is, we think, sufliciently so to
enable one to form some idea of the life and descendants of that pioneer
preacher and patriot, Erastus Harvey. From the New York Independent the
following is taken: "We have never been able to get over the conviction that
there is truth in the saying that 'blood will tell.' We have a suspicion that,
if the facts were all told, it would appear that an astonishingly large propor-
tion of our most unpretentious Americans of real calibre, men and women
that have done big things in business, in politics and in the professions, in
science, in scholarship and in art, could show pedigrees well worthy of seri-
ous examination; not necessarily descendants from kings and nobles, but
descendants from families in which intelligence, courage, persistence and
resourcefulness have characterized an extraordinarily large proportion of the
kindred. Where pedigrees of this kind can be established, it is, we believe,
well worth while to devote a reasonable amount of time and money to the
necessary genealogical research. Pride of family and of ancestry, so far
from being a bad thing, or a thing to be held lightly, might be cultivated in
our modern civilization with happy results. We have come to regard with
too much indifference those achievements in life that can't be bought with
money or raced after in a car. A little more regard for things that make for
dignity, serenity, peace of mind, considerateness, and that gracious kindli-
ness which once was associated with the words 'gentleman' and 'gentle-
woman,' would be a good thing for the American people. These things have
always been associated, and probably will continue to be associated, with
family pride. 'Noblesse oblige' is a phraee that applies to intellectual and
moral rank quite as truly as it ever belonged to the rank ruthlessly created
by the sword and established as legalized privilege."
Thus the descendants of Erastus Harvey may not possess in their veins
the blood of kings and nobles, but in him they have common ancestry of in-
telligence, courage, persistence and resourcefulness. He lived a life that
combined a love of duty with the love of righteousness. The silver hairs of
a long life spent in usefulness were his crown. The desire to pursuade oth-
ers to live noble lives was his scepter. The field of his endeavor was his
throne. To his children and his children's children he left these traits as a
heritage forever, which, let us hope, are characteristic of bis descendants:
l-VDUSTRY, FRUGAIJTY dnd STRICT HONESTY.
THE HARVEY FAMILY, IN GENERAL.
The first llarveys to reach America came previous to the year IGlO, and
landed at Boston, Mass. Thomas and William, brothers, were here before
that date, and have descendants living in various parts of tlie country, both
East and West. These are known as the Massachusetts branch. There are
numerous Harvey families in Pennsylvania. The New Jersey Harveys have
descended from one Robert Harvey, who came from Suffolkshire, England,
about the year 1740. There are Harveys that settled in New Hampshire;
and Harveys in Virginia. These latter arc connected with the Marshall fam-
ily. Thus the Harvey family is almost as numerous as the Smith or Brown
or Jones family.
But all these bear no relationship to our branch, they being of English
origin. Our branch of the Harvey family came from Scotland. That is the
tradition handed down from one generation to another. The strong Scotch
character is seen in the most of them to this day. Staunch for the right as
they see the right, they do very little changing from one opinion, or doctrine,
or party, to another. They go far towards proving the old adage: "The way
to change a Scotchman's mind is to kill him."
The first of our family to reach the shores of America came about the
time of the French and Indian War. He is known to have been a sailor. But
his first name and other events of his life are unknown to this generation.
Of his family Ave know of but one: William Harvey, born 1754 in East Had-
dam, Connecticut. He was a soldier of the Revolutionary War. A study of
the Historical Collections of the Connecticut Military Records, Vol. XII., dis-
closes the names of many Harveys that entered the Revolutionary War
from East Haddam. Among them are William, Nathan, John, Amos, Ezra,
Ithamer, and Asahel. Just what relationship they bear, if any, is not known
to the writer; but the similarity of the names with some of the names of
his children leads one to believe they may have been of his kinfolk. The
best known biography of William Harvey is his obituary, published in the
Haverhill, Grafton County (New Hampshire) Intelligencer, bearing the date
of Wednesday, October 4, 1826. An original copy of this paper is now in the
possession of Mrs. Ann Ferry, Leeds, Iowa.
"For the Intelligencer.
"Mr. Editor: I send you the following which I wish you to insert in your
paper: Died at Lyndon, Vermont, on the 20th of August, 1826, Mr. William
Harvey, a soldier of the Revolutionary War, aged 72 years. Mr. Harvey was
born in the year 1754, in East Haddam, Connecticut, and was uniformly
throughout his life, a zealous advocate of republican principles; and has
passed through the most perilous scenes and hardships, both by sea and by
HAllVEY GENEALOGY 3
land, in the service of his country and his family. He engaged in the sea
faring business in the fifteenth year of his age, and continued in that em-
ploy ment until the commencement of the Revolutionary War, when he en-
listed in the service of his country on land and first went to Boston, and
there stayed till the British left town; and then, after returning home to hisi
family in East Haddam, immediately enlisted on board a tow-galley, undtx
the command of Captain Tinker, for a term of six months, and Avas sent up
the North Pdver to oppose the enemy, and in which place he was called to
action. But when the time of his enlistment was out, he returned home to
his family, and entered on board a merchant ship fitted out by the State for
St. Martins, West Indies, in quest of salt; but on his way home was overtak-
en and captured by a British ship of war and carried into Providence, Rhode
Island, where, after suffering the loss of property and health, in consequence
of ill-treatment, he was exchanged and set at liberty. In May, 1777, he en-
listed in the land service in the Continental Army for the term of three years,
in Captain Cattin's company, and General Huntington's brigade, where he
discharged his duty with faithfulness and to the acceptness of his officers.
During the tim.e of his service he was in the Germantown battle, Pennsyl-
vania, also in Monmouth, New Jersey, besides others of minor consequence;
and in the year 1780, was honorably discharged. He then returned home,
and entered on board a sloop for a trading voyage to the West Indies, and
on his return was again taken prisoner and carried into the Isle of Bermuda,
where he stayed eight months, and suffered very severely from the enemy,
and was robbed of all he had on board, and -even som^e of the clothes from
his back. He remained a prisoner until peace took place, after which he was
carried to North Carolina, and from there home to Connecticut. After this
he followed the sea for a while, and suffered the loss of property and under-
went many hardships. In 1792 he quit the sea and removed to Chesterfield,
New Hampshire, and in 1793 he moved to Lyndon, Vermont, where he died.
It may be observed that in the year 1796, he professed a hope in Christ, and
attached himself to a Methodist church, of which he was a constant member
until he died; but the place being new where he moved when he left Chester-
field, he labored very hard to support his family, which was large and was
rendered still harder for him on account of his always being accustomed In
the sea, and to add to his affliction, he was troubled with a bad breech, which
he received in the war by lifting. By enlarging, it grew more troublesome,
until combined with other infirmities which for years he had been troubled
with, terminated his existence on the 20th of August last. It may be said of
Mr. Harvey that he was a kind husband and an affectionate father, an honest
man, a good neighbor, a real Christian, a zealous patriot, and a friend of lib-
erty. He lived respected by his friends, and manifested great fortitude of
mind in his last illness; and rejoiced in hope of a glorious crown of life ^vhich
., IIAinEY GENEALOGY
avviiitccl him; aiul wiih Uie greatest composure bid his friends and compan-
ion adieu, and launched into the Eternal World. He left behind his aged
companion in life, and children to mourn his loss."
William Ilarvc.v married Jane Bccbe, born October 15, 1757, of English
parentage. At the time of his death he and his wife were making their home
A\ith their daughter, Jane Prescott. Afterward, the widow lived with her son,
Erastus Harvey, and died at Woodstock, Ohio, July 21. 1S40. The children of
William and Jane (Beebe) Harvey were:
William, born February 9, 1777.
John, born January 22, 1780.
Daniel, born January 6, 17S2.
Nathan, born March 4, 1784.

OUTLINE OF THESE ABOVE, EXCEPTING ERASTUS,
The three oldest, William, John and Daniel, disappeared in a mysterious
manner. Not far from the year 1800, they ran off to sea. They never re-
turned. As nothing was ever heard of or from them, it is suppo.sed that
they were lost at sea. There was quite a strong attachment existing between
parents and children in this family, which must have been shared by these
three, so that if any of them could have reached home or sent word to sor-
rov>ing parents, he would have done so. Ever afterwards the mother in tell-
ing of her lost sons would walk the floor and cry.
Nathan B. married and moved to western New York State. From time to
time letters passed between him and the family at Woodstock, Ohio, but
when these ceased all trace of that family was lost. He was a laAvyer and
preacher, and interested in farming, and is credited with being a brainy man.
Of his family the writer only knows that he had a son, Oscar.
Lucrctia married Daniel Stoddard at Lyndon, Vermont. They came to
AVoodstock, Ohio, in the Fail of 1836. Daniel was horn August 23, 1768, and
died April 2, 1859. Lucretia died August . ., 1852. They are buried in the old
cemetery at Woodstock, Ohio. There were eleven children born to Daniel
and Lucretia Stoddard, as follows:
Elenor, born October 11, 1806.
Martha, born January 11, 1809.
Diana, born August 18, 1813.
Nancy, born August 12, 1815.
Paibcu and Rul'us, (twins), born August 2S, 1818.
Jolm, born August 2cl, 1820.

William, born May 23, 1828.
Nancy married Ivan Pugsley, a blacksmith, who lived and died in East
Liberty, Ohio. Carlos Stoddard was living in Linn county, Kansas, in 1003.
Further information about the Stoddard famiyl is not Ivuown to the writer.
It is supposed that the first Simon died young, as there was a second Simon
that also died in infancy.
Ilufus Harvey Vvas for many years a Baptist minister. Later he entered
the ministry of the Christian church. He was a i\Iason. His hrst wife was
Sarah Corless, whom he married in 1821. She died May 3, 1850, aged 53 years,
9 months and 9 days. In 1858 Rufus married Mrs. Chloe Z. Thompson. Rev.

BIOGRAPHY OF ERASTUS HARVEY.
EiaslUb Harvey, sixth child of William and June (Beebu) Harvey, Avas
boiii in East Haddani, Connecticut, March 8, 1789. His grandparents were
Scotch emigrants to Connecticut, a little after the middle of the eighteenth
century. He made use of his opportunity to obtain an education in such
schools as those times produced. In the year 1807, he enlisted in the regular
army and was in the War of 1812. He played the tenor drum in the battle
of Plattsburg, in September, 1814. He received many benefits from the mil-
itary service in the way of regular habits of daily life; the ability to walk
correctly, for even in his last years he was able to walk rapidly many miles;
the ability to endure hardships and to overcome them — for hardships are al-
ways present in the army, and the discipline thus derived builds character
which is of benefit in other walks of life. At the close of the war he return-
ed to Lyndon, Vermont, and in the year 1816 he married Betsey Bettis, who
was born September 27, 1798. She v/as the daughter of John and Eunice
(Ainsworth) Bettis. John Bettis came to America from France, when he was
twenty-one years of age. He came to escape being impressed into military
service. He was of French Huguenot parentage. After being in America
about six years he settled in Vermont and married Eunice Ainsworth. Soon
after their marriage they located in Canada among the French Canadians.
They had three dughters: Eunice, Betsey and Esther. By industry and econ-
omy John Bettis accumulated a small fortune. Because of sympathy for the
American cause during the War of 1812, the British confiscated all his prop-
erty, and they were rendered penniless. They moved back to Vermont where
they remained the rest of their lives.
Erastus Harvy was a member of the Free Will Baptist church at Cabot,
Vermont, in 1821. The Wheelock Q. M., licensed him to preach in 1822. In
1825 he was ordained. The following certificate shows his ordination, the
original copy of which is now in the possession of L. B. Harvey, Marysville,
"Certificate of Ordination.
This certifyeth that at Lyndon in the county of Caladony and
State of Vermont, on the 28th day of August, 1825, Brother Eras-
tus Harvey, of said Lyndon, received ordinance agreeable to the
New Testament, and was set apart to the work of the Gospel Min-
istry by the laying on of the hands of
Free Will Baptist. Ordaining Elders.
J5 HARVEY GENEALOGY
From the time oi his marriage until he entered the ministry he had
farmed at J.yndon, Vermont. His obituary speaks of his preaching first in
Vermont; then lie went to Littleton, New Hampshire, lor one year, returning
to Vermont. Thence to Barnston, in Stanstead county, Canada, Province of
Quebec. The Stoddards and others had gone to the then far West and had
located at Woodstock, Champaign county, Ohio. They sent back glowing ac-
counts of the new country with its splendid crops and fine climate. A call
came to Rev. Krastus Harvey to preach to a congregation at Woodstock,
which was gladly accepted and he moved his family to that place sometime
about the year Ib^S. It was a long journey. They came by wagon to the Erie
Canal. Thence by canal to Buffalo. Thence by lake boat to Cleveland, Ohio.
Thence by wagon south to the xNational pike which they followed to Colum-
bus and thence to Woodstock. Here he purchased a farm in the woods and
soon a log house was built and some land cleared. This farm is now owned
by the Lincolns and to this day is called the Harvey farm. He preached to
Baptist congregations in Champaign and Union counties, and for a while at
I'itchin, in Clark county. After six or seven years he sold this farm and pur-
chased one in Perry township, Logan county, Ohio, near North Greenlield.
He ran an ashery on this farm and the ash pile can be seen even to this day
on the north bank of Mill Creek on what is now the Critchfield farm. He con-
tinued to preach and acted as Q. M. clerk "making full proof of his ministry."
After a residence of about hve years here, he sold this farm and purchased
another in Bokescreek township, some four miles to the north, and one mile
east of Walnut Grove. It is now part of the Garwood place and south of the
road. While living in Logan county, the sons and daughters began to marry
and go to homes of their own. William lived on an adjoining farm and taught
school and practiced medicine. Alonzo taught school and made brick on a
farm one and a half miles east of West Mansfield. John Bettis owned the
farm now possessed by Will Ballinger, a mile east of Bethel church. Mary
Ann married Thomas Ballinger while her parents v.ere living on Mill Creek.
Isaac Albee lived on the farm now ovncd by Earnest Atkinson, a mile to the
northeast of West Mansfield. Amos Parker was teaching and farming near
Springfield, Ohio. Daniel Young Avas learning the blacksmith trade at East
Liberty, a few miles away. David Marks taught school and lived in West
Mansfield. Edwin, Cynthia, and Dennis were at home or were working for
the boys. Betsey Jane Darling died about this time, being the first of the
family to pass away excepting a child at Lyndon, Vermont. After a long ill-
ness from dropsy the wife and mother died on the Walnut Grove farm July
31, 1855. She was buried in what is now Greenlawn cemetery, two miles
south of West Mansfield. She was one of the kindest of mothers and with
her gone the family circle was forever broken. In a month or two the father
HARVEY GENEALOGY 9
sold the farm and in September, 1855, with his sons, William and Albee, he
moved to Castalia, Winneshiek county, Iowa, where others of his family had
In 1857 he married Mrs. Hannah Sargent, who was a native of Vermont.
He preached to a number of congregations in northern Iowa and did so oc-
casionally till a few days before his death. "As a preacher Brother Harvey
was earnest, animated and spiritual. He had received and had retained the
Holy Anointing which gave him strength and boldness in the presence of the
people. His sermons were eminently Scriptural, evangelical, and comforting
to the saints. He succeeded well as a pastor and sometimes his labors were
crowned with revivals. As a Christian he delighted in the bright and peace-
ful regions of the higher life — a life hid with Christ in God. He was loved
and esteemed for his moral and religious worth and for his work's sake."
He died August 27, 1872, of billious diarrhea and was first buried in Mt.
Grove cemetery; but was later removed to Pleasant View cemetery, Castalia,
Iowa, where a suitable stone marks the last resting place of a patriot and pi-
oneer. The children of Rev. Erastus and Betsey (Bettis) Harvey were: Wil-
liam Alexander, Alonzo Augustus, John, Betsey Jane, John Bettis, Mary Ann,
Isaac Albee, Amos Parker, Daniel, David Marks, Edwin Erastus, Cynthia
Lucretia and Dennis Rufus. Thirtten births, twelve living to adult age.

NOTES AND COMMENTS ON THE ABOVE OUTLINE.
Tile writer attempted to locate the grave of William Harvey (1754-1826)
but was unsuccessful. H. B. Welch, who cares for the cemetery at Lyudon,
Vermont, writes that there is no ferave marlied to the memory of William Har-
vey, Lut that he might be buried there as there are a number of graves of Rev-
olutionary soldiers that have no markers. He further states that there is a
Revolutionary Soldiers' Monument located in the cemetery with inscriptions
one of which is: "Erastus Harvey, Died August 20, 1S26. Age 72 Years." As
this corresponds to the date of his death and his age it is reasonable to con-
clude that his full name was William Erastus Harvey.
There is a Harvey book written by Oscar Jewell Harvey, of Wilkes-Barre,
Pennsylvania, a copy of which is in the Library of Congress, Washington; the
New berg Library, Chicago; the Minnesota Historical Society, St. Paul, Minn.,
and other libraries. The writer has not personally examined it but had it ex-
amined by a friend at Washington, D. C, who reports that he is unable to con-
nect the Harveys therein listed with those of our family. This only confirms
the tradition that our branch is of different origin than most of the Harveys
of America, who are English, while we are Scotch. The Library of Congress
also contains "Ancestry of Colonel John Harvey, of Northvy-ood, New Hamp-
shire"'; "Inscriptions in Harvey Vault and Chapel, Hempstead church, Essex
county, England"; "Genealogy of Famiyl of Harvey, Folkstone, Kent county,
England." There are volumes on the Ainsworth and the Bcebe families for
sale by eastern genealogical firms.
When the family came to Woodstock, Ohio, from Canada, they stayed
all night in Columbus, Ohio. When morning came they loaded up and
started on their way. They had not gone far Avhen grandmother missed one
of her flock. They returned to the lodging house and found David M. (1S33),
still sleeping. He was hustled out and the journey was begun anew. He was
5 years old.
After they had settled on the farm at Woodstock, Betsey Jane (1S22) went
to a neighbors to spend the day. When evening cam.e she started home. Be-
fore she reached home darkness came down upon her and soon she came to
a fence. She turned her horse about thinking she had taken the wrong trail.
But each time the horse would come back to the fence. Finally she hitched
the horse to a tree and sat on a log waiting for morning. When morning came
she found she was only a few rods from her father's house. During her ab-
sence they had built a fence around the clearing which accounts for her being

Aunt Cyiithia (ISSJS), remembers that about the time the family was liv-
ing on Mill Creek in Logan county, that there was talked about a Betlis es-
tate in France being divided. She does not recall that there ever came of it,
anything more substantial than talk. John Bettis, however, is supposed to
have left behind him a wealthy parentage.
