public school was provided and oft-"
times he boarded the teachers free of
charge. He was an ardent believer
that the farm was the logical place
for the masses of his people and con
tinually advising them to buy homes,
and through his Influence many
bought land. Simon Harvey was born
in Franklin county, state ot Kentucky
in the year of 1824. He came to this
county in 1838 and has lived in How
ard and Randolph counties ever since.
He died May 26 at tho ago of 90
years. He was married twice, was the
father of fourteen children, eight liv
ing and a wife, thirty grandchildren
and nineteen great grandchildren....
