    Default HARVEY from IOW

    Do these families belong to you!!

    I recently found these gravestones in a pioneer cemetery near Chatham in Southern Ontario.

    In memory of / WILLIAM WHITE/ a native of Kent, Eng/ who departed this life/ March 22 1850/ in the 70 year of his age

    In memory of/ HANNNAH/ wife of William White/ who died/ April 1 1870/ aged 88 years

    MARY/ wife of / George Harvey/ died/ June 9 1879/ aged 71 years less 37 days/ native of Kent England [she was probably the daughter of the couple above]

    GEORGE HARVEY/ died/ 24 Dec 1878/ aged 78ys and 8ms/ a native of Isle of Wight

    They have no connection to my family unfortunately. I have digital photos which I would be pleased to send to anyone interested.

    Best wishes, Ted White

    Default George Harvey


    I am a descendant of George Harvey's brother Isaac Harvey ch.1786 in Brading.

    George Harvey b.26 Sep 1800 in Adgestone Isle of Wight,and died 24 Dec 1878 in Charing Cross,Kent,Ontario. His wife was Mary White b.16 Jul 1808 in Rolvenden,Kent,England,daughter of William White and Hannah Russell.

    George Harvey emigrated to the U.S.A. aged 19,with his sister Sarah and brother-in-law Henry West,and lived in Baltimore,Maryland,for two years,then Pennsylvania until 1825 when he settled in Ontario.

    I am very interested in any further information.My e-mail address is:- hanickATliberoDOTit

    Very interested to find this as my tree had got stuck on Isaac Harvey born IOW 1786, George's brother. If it's OK I would be grateful to have copies of the digital photos.


    Many Thanks
