  • Notes 
    • Harvey had long white beard and was a United Baptist minister

      Harvey was the executor for the estate of his father. The record of the probate is recorded in the Floyd County Clerk's Office. The estate was settled in 1860 in Floyd County by the selling of the land holdings of Blair May

      In the 1860s and 70s, Floyd County had no county school system. Sarah Elizabeth and her brothers and sisters attended a 3-month subscription school in their neighborhood. Parents who had school-age children would sign an agreement to send their children to a 3-month school and agree to help pay, maybe $25 to someone to teach the school. That was called a subscription school. Sarah Elizabeth joined the United Baptist Church at Bonanza while a teenager. She was baptized by a Rev. Conley.
