Biography

Richard Harvey was born in England circa 1843 to John and Ann (Unknown) Harvey. He is the oldest of the known children of this family.

When Richard was 6 years old, he immigrated with his family to the United States from London, England on the ship Southampton, arriving in New York City on 27 August 1849. [1]

Members of the John Harvey family that traveled to America are:

  1. Father - John Harvy (age 34 ~ circa 1815) - Painter
  2. Mother - Ann (age 30 ~ circa 1819)
  3. Richard (age 6 ~ circa 1843)

At the time of the United States Census in 1850, Richard was 7 years old, and his family was still living in New York City.[2]

By 1860, John Harvey had moved his family out of New York City to the Town of Greenburgh in Westchester County, New York, post office district of Tarrytown. Richard was helping to support the family as a Painter, following in the occupational footsteps of his father. Also, another child had been added to the family circa 1853: Frederick Harvey.[3]

On 15 Oct 1861, he was transferred to Co B and spent 3 years[4] fighting battles in South Carolina, Florida, Virginia, and North Carolina.[5] Richard mustered out of the Union army on 20 Sept 1864.[6]

I am a member of a Harvey family from the English Midlands and children in the 400 year span I can see are NOT commonly named Richard. Most Richards seem to come from Southern England, particularly Devon and Cornwall. These are also sea-faring counties.
