On August 7, 1855, Harvey married Margaret “Peggy” Ann McCoy who was also from the Highland, Virginia area. They had the following children: Martha “Mattie”, Medora “Dora”, Anna Elizabeth, Marietta, William H, Minnie, Edward Lovett, and Margaret.
Harvey was in the Union Militia for West Virginia during the Civil War and was nicked in the neck by a Confederate musket ball. I will write more on that later.
Harvey died on 5 May 1928 in Upshur County, West Virginia and is buried in Frenchton Cemetery.
