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: 


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 


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 


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. 

Lucrctia, born January 29, 1787. 

Erastus, born March 8, 1789. 

Simon and Dotia, (twins), born April 2, 1791. Uotia died April 16, lSi2. 

Simon, the 2d, born October 16, 1793. Died June 27, 1795. 

Rufus and Robert, (twins), born April 25, 1795. Robert died June 2cl, 179'3. 

Jane, born May 7, 1797. 

Robert, the 2d, born April 10, 1800. Died April 25, 1800. 


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. 

Carlos, Cassandre, Cassandanu, (triplets), born January 6, 1S23. 

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. 
Rufus Harvey and family came to Woodstock, then to Logan county, finally 
settling at Maineville, Warren county, Ohio, where he died February 14, 1876. 
He is described as one of "dignity in appearance, kind and affable in de- 
meanor, easy and fluent in conversation; he was a great sermonizer.*' The 
following children were born to Rev. Rufus and Sarah (Corless) Harvey: 

Daniel Azro, born December 3, 1821. Died March 24, 1829.

Jane Harvey, youngest except one of the children of William Harvey, 


married Eliphalct Prescott and they remained in the East. He died June 2G, 
1S71, and his wife, Jane, died October 8, 181)0, being the last ol the William 
Harvey family to go. They had three children: 

Sarah N., born 1821, manied Charles Streeler. They had four children. 
Charles W. Frebcott (182G) died in the army in ISGo; he was married and 
left four childreu. Salina (1835) married L. S. Wheeler and was living nt 
East Charleston, Vermont, in 1892. Further information about the Prey- 
cotts not known to the writer. 



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. 


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 


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 
recently settled. 

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. 



WILLIAM ALEXANDER HARVEY was born April 1, 1817, at Lyndon, Vt. 
His boyhood was spent on the farm. While a resident of Barnston, Canada, 
he married Arminda Kedway, a native of that place. He taught school and 
ttudied medicine, relying principally on herbs as a curative. From Canada 
thoy moved to near West Mansfield, Ohio, at about the time his father settled 
there, and taught school and practiced medicine. Later he moved to a place 
one mile eouth of Mt. Victory, Ohio, where he farmed and practiced medi- 
cine, having a large practice, both at that place and at West Mansfield. In 
September, 1S55, they moved to Castalia, Iowa. Here he farmed and follow- 
ed his profession until 1876 when they moved to Valley Springs, Minnehaha 
county. South Dakota. Here his practice extended into three States, South 
Dakota, Iowa and Nebraska. His wife died August 5, 1883. Later he mar- 
ried Emiline Miller. His death occurred April 28, 1896, and Avas buried be-

DENNIS RUFUS HARVEY was born at Woodstock, Champaign county, 
Ohio, October 10, 1840. He did not go to Iowa with his father, but lived with 
his brothers in Ohio, and went to Iowa sometime during the first or second 
year of the war. He enlisted in the 38th Iowa Regiment, Company H. He was 
with General Grant in the Vicksburg campaign. At the latter place he be- 
came sick with typhoid fever, and was sent North. He wrote his sister, Cyn- 
thia, that he feared he could not live but hoped to reach home before death. 
He died at Keokuk, Iowa, August 30, 1863, and was buried there, the exact lo- 
cation of his grave not known to the writer. He w-as single. He is said to 
have been industrious, studious and religious. 




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. 

Grandfather Harvey (1789), delighted to hold his grandchildren on hia 
knee to whom he would sing his favorite song: "Life is passing away, away. 
Hour by hour and day by day." ^ ^ iZA ^WW 

'there are two sets of double cousins among the grandchildren as follows; 
Alonzo A. Harvey (1818), married Rachel Ballinger, and Thomas Ballinger 
married Mary Ann Harvey (1826). Edwin E. Harvey (1835), married Lucy 
Policy, and Hiram Polley married Cynthia L. Harvey (1838). 

The oldest grandchild is W. Austin Harvey (184U); the youngest is Mary 
Ethel Williams (1881). In fact the three youngest children of Amos 1". Har- 
vey (1829), are the three youngest grandchildren. 

Clara Adelade Dean (LSCS), daughter of W. Austin Harvey, is the oldest 
great-grandchild; Clifford Harvey (1911), son of Frank Harvey, in L'ncle AI- 
bee's family, is the youngest here recorded. 

Kev. Thomas Harvey (18.52), remained with the radical branch of the 
U. B. church when that denomination split over secrecy. 

Charles Harvey (1851), of Valley Springs, S. D., has been Comraissiouer 
of iMinnehaha county. South Dakota, for nine years. His second term ex- 
pires in 1912. 

Lcinson B. Harvey (1858), was for twenty years in the Surveyor's office 
at Marysville, Union county, Ohio, first as County Surveyor, then as Deputy. 

Rev. Julius Cone Harvey (1862), of Saint Maries, Idaho, is a graduate <>f 
Cornell College, Mt. Vernon, Iowa. 

Clarissa A. Farnhara (1858), of Eugene, Oregon, was for many years a 
school teacher. She is a fine writer and her letters show marks of scholar- 

Rev. Alonzo H. Ballinger (IS 14), was a member of Company A. 121st O. V. 
I. He marched to the sea with General Sherman. George Thompson was a 


member of Company I, 45th O. V. I. Isaac Webb was a member of the 13lh 
Ohio Independent Battery. Augustus Nafe was a member of the 4th Iowa In- 
dependent Battery. John Henning was also a member of some regiment. 

The sons of Mary Ellen Banning (1849), of Mott, North Dakota, have bolh 
steam and gasoline breaking rigs. The former draws twelve and the latter 
eight plows. 

Rev. Milo R. Ballinger (1868), is a graduate of the O. W. U., of Delaware, 
Ohio. For the last nine years he has been pastor of the Colbern Street U. B. 
church, Toledo, Ohio. 

Alouzo A. Harvey (1873), of Castalia, Iowa, is a graduate of the Upper 
Iowa University. In 1911 he received the prize for the best ten ears of corn 
raised in the north third of that State, and there came to him as a prize, a two 
hundred dollar engine. 

Anyone bearing the name of Harvey not herein recorded, who might be 
distantly related to the descendants of Rev. Erastus Harvey, must of neces- 
sity be of the Nathan B. Harvey family of Western New York State, or of Rev. 
Rufus Harvey's family, partial outline of these being given.
