FOURTH GENERATION.



22 JOHN 4 HARVEY (Joseph? John? William^, born
March 29, 1719, in Amesbmy ; baptized Sept. 14, 1729; died
Aug. 18, 1756, at Fort William Henry, Lake George, N. Y. ;
married June 9, 1743, Mary Whittle, born June 22, 1722,

died Nov. (her son, Col. John Harvey, in his Diary,

1779-1781, gives the date thus), and probably the daughter of
Thomas and Mary Whittle, who had a son Thomas, baptized
Aug. 7, 1726, in the Second Church. He was a carpenter by
trade ; was enrolled in the Train-band of Capt. Sargent, Col.
John Greenleaf's Regiment. Carpenters and shipwrights were
wanted to build boats and vessels on Lake Champlain and Lake
George. In 1756, drafts were made upon every Company in
the Province for soldiers. These were picked men, and their
services, in addition to doing strictly military duties, were em-
ployed in constructing vessels to combat the French on the
lakes. They were shipwrights and carpenters. They were
constantly so employed in 1755, 1756 and 1757. This work
went on, summer and winter, and more progress was made in
the latter season, because there was less danger of attack then
from the French and their Indian allies. Those vessels that
survived the French and Indian wars did valiant service in our
Revolutionary struggle.

John Harvey was drafted and enrolled in the Company of
Capt. Stephen Webster, Col. Bayley's Regiment, according to
a Descriptive List, dated at Fort William Henry, Aug. 9, 1756,
being then 37 years old. He died soon after. According to
the Massachusetts Archives (xciv : 118), " John Harvey served
for 43 days, 2 s - per day, <£4 : 6 : 0." This report was made up
Feb. 3, 1757, at Crown Point (see Massachusetts Archives,
xcv: 154), where John Harvey was reported "dead," and that
he served till Aug. 22, 1756, " 20 wks, and 6 days, £8. 6. 11."
Amesbury town records say he died Aug. 18, 1756. The name
of Theophilus Harvey, aet. 27, of Kingston, and born there,
occurs next to that of John Harvey. He may be the Theophi-
lus, son of William Harvey, baptized in 1726 (see page 11).
Ages in muster rolls are often incorrect.

Widow Mary Harvey was appointed administratrix, Oct. 14,
1756. The inventory, Oct. 9, 1756, shows very little property.
They both renewed their baptismal covenant at the Second
Church in 1744.

FIFTH GENERATION.



31 Col. JOHN"' HARVEY (John* Joseph, 3 John, 2 Wil-
liam 1 ), born Aug. 4, 1745, in Aniesbury; baptized Aug. 11,
1745 ; died Feb. — , 1812, according to Parson Bradley's Diary,
in Falmouth, now Westbrook, Maine; married about 1771,
Sarah Blake, of Epping, N. H., born Dec. 5, 1747; died
Nov. 14, 1827, aet. 79 years, 11 months (g. s.), in Northwood,
N. H., and daughter of Joseph Blake. He probably came to
Nottingham about 1765, where Jonathan Harvey settled about
1755 (see pages 15, 16), and afterwards removed to that part
of the town which was set off Feb. 6, 1773, as Northwood.
April 1, 1772, he bought land of Samuel Dearborn, cordwainer,
of Epping, bounded west by a pond, afterwards called Harvey
Pond, now Harvey Lake, for £32: 10s., where he lived. The
first meeting of the freeholders and inhabitants was called
March 23, 1773, when he was chosen one of the fence-viewers.
June 9, 1774, he, with others, petitioned for Benjamin Hill to
be Justice of the Peace.

When he first enlisted as a soldier in the Revolution is not
now known, but in the pay-roll, Aug. 1, 1775, of the Company
of Capt. Henry Dearborn, of Nottingham, Col. John Stark's
Regiment, which was at the battle of Bunker Hill and in sub-
sequent campaigns, occurs the name of a John Harvey, who
enlisted May 11, 1775, served 2 months, 26 days, and Oct. 16

he received |4.00 for his regimental coat, promised by the Colony
of New Hampshire. In the fall of 1775, Dearborn's Company
was in Arnold's Regiment, which marched to Quebec by way of
the Kennebec. In April, 1776, the Association Test was drawn
up in the town of Northwood, and a return made of all those
who signed and of those who refused to sign. The name of
John Harvey does not occur in either of these lists. He was
probably in the Army. When he became a member of the
New Hampshire Society of the Cincinnati in 1784, he signed as
a Lieutenant, having served four years, to the end of the war.
But he was a soldier for a longer period. According to the
New Hampshire Muster Rolls (imperfect), he enlisted Feb. 22,

1777, for three years, as Sergeant, in the 1st Company, Capt.
James Gray, 3d New Hampshire Regiment; was Ensign, May 1,

1778, to Jan., 1780, and promoted to be Quarter-master, Sept.
15, 1780, from Ensign. In the new arrangement of officers in
the 1st Regiment, Col. Joseph Cilley, he was Ensign, and pro-
moted to be Lieutenant, May 12, 1781.

In 1779, and later, he served in Pennsylvania and along the
Hudson River. His Regiment formed a part of Sullivan's ex-
pedition against the Six Nations of Indians of Western New
York. He was present at the execution of Maj. John Andre,
Oct. 2, 1780, at Tappan, N. Y. He kept a Diary during this
campaign, from 1779-1781. It is a small book, in excellent
preservation, of some 130 pages, and about 120 words to a
page. The writing is plain, and the language used is good,
though the spelling, of course, is not always correct. He
records that he left Northwood March 7, 1779, and marched 15
miles to Epping. It has two well-drawn plans of battles. At
the end he gives the record of his own family, the date of the
birth and death of his father, and the date of birth of his
mother, without giving her maiden name, and the month only
of her death. This Diary he gave to Joseph Quinby, Jr., son
of widow Quinby, at whose house he was then living, Jan.,

1812, not long before his death in the following February, as
Joseph has marked on a fly-leaf. This Diary is now in the
possession of Miss Lillian Quinby, granddaughter of Joseph
Quinby, Jr., and Librarian of the Westbrook Public Library.
In 1904 I called at her residence to see the book. She was
very courteous, and allowed me to examine as much as I pleased
the Diary, which she values very highly, but would not part
with it on any consideration, and, unfortunately, would not
allow it to be printed ; so that the descendants of Col. John
Harvey may probably never be able to see the work of their
ancestor. But, fortunately, in the " Journals of the Military
Expedition of Maj. John Sullivan against the Six Nations of
Indians in 1779," there have been printed by Frederick Cook
(Auburn, N. Y., 1887), five Diaries written by New Hampshire
officers, from which may be gathered the same information as
that contained in Lieut. Harvey's Diary : — Lieut. Col. Henry
Dearborn, 3d N. H. Regiment, with plan of order of march and
battle, the same as in Harvey's Diary, pp. 62-79; Sergeant
Moses Fellows, 3d N. H. Regiment, pp. 86-91 ; Maj. James
Norris, 3d N. H. Regiment, pp. 223-239 ; Maj. Jeremiah Fogg,
2d N. H. Regiment, pp. 92-101; Ensign Daniel Gookin, 2d
N. H. Regiment, pp. 102-106.

After the close of the war in 1783, he returned to North-
wood, where he was a prosperous farmer, and interested in the
welfare of the town. In 1783 he bought various lots of land
sold for taxes, 1779-1782, and in the Deeds he is styled "gen-
tleman" (Rockingham Deeds, cxiv: 496-501 ; cxxxii: 195, 199).
He had the title of Colonel at least as early as 1788, probably
from service in the militia. In 1781 the Congregationalists
built a Meeting-house. June 3, 1784, the pew privileges were
sold, varying from 112.00 to #19.50. A first, second and third
was sold to John Harvey, and he was one of the committee
men to sell them. His wife Sarah became a member when the
church was organized, Nov. 29, 1788, but he did not. He was

Town Clerk, 1784-1788, and a selectman in 1787. He signed
a petition for laying out a road, Dec. 15, 1788.

THE NEW HAMPSHIRE SOCIETY OF THE CINCINNATI.

At the close of the War of the Revolution, the officers of
the Continental Army, at Newburgh-on-the-Hudson, May 13,
1783, formed a Society to be called the Cincinnati, to perpet-
uate the memory of the struggle, and to promote mutual
friendships and acts of beneficence among its members and
their posterity. For convenience the Society was divided into
thirteen State Societies. Gen. Washington was the first Presi-
dent-General. A Society of the French officers was also organ-
ized July 4, 1784, under the presidency of Count d'Estaing,
who was guillotined April 28, 1794, — the first and only Presi-
dent of the Society in France. It included among its members
many illustrious nobles and military officers. Louis XVI, by
decree in council, permitted them to wear the Order. No other
foreign Order, except that of the Golden Fleece, was allowed
to be worn in France. The institution was formally sanctioned
by Louis XVI at Versailles, Dec. 18, 1783, with the head of
the Government as patron of the Order. It became dormant
and the members were dispersed by the outbreak of the Revo-
lution in 1792. (See " The Order of the Cincinnati in France,"
by Asa Bird Gardiner, 1905.)

The New Hampshire Society of the Cincinnati was organized
at Exeter, Nov. 18, 1783. The original members were twenty-
seven, whose names were subscribed on that occasion, and at a
subsequent meeting, Feb. 4, 1784. Lieut. John Harvey sub-
scribed in 1784. Owing to a lack of interest in creating
new members, many of the original ones having died or re-
moved to other States, the Society became dormant in 1 823,
and the last meeting was adjourned after voting " that the next
annual meeting be held at Portsmouth." So it is plain that
the Society never intended to disband. A few years ago the



Fifth Generation. 29

work of resuscitation was begun, and the Society is now in a
very flourishing condition. It was chiefly owing to the action
of the New Hampshire Society in 1784, in opposing the pro-
posed amendment to the Constitution abolishing the rule of
hereditary succession, that the Order was preserved. Nov. 1,
1902, the Society purchased the " Gilman House," a fine old
Colonial building, as a permanent headquarters, and here its
meetings are held every Fourth of July and on other occasions.
The house was built by Nathaniel Ladd in 1721, and was the
residence, during the Revolution, of Col. Nicholas Gilman,
Treasurer of New Hampshire from 1775 to 1783.

After serving so long in the war, it is no wonder that many
of these men had become incapacitated for hard farm labor.
Large arrearages were also due them from the Government,
which it was promised should be paid them with interest as
soon as the state of the finances allowed. Many with broken
fortunes and health could not wait, and their claims and cer-
tificates were sold to sharpers for what they could get, often a
mere fraction of what was due them.

John Harvey owned many farms, had a good house, and was
an innholder, but he desired a better dwelling ; so he erected
the house, afterwards the residence of his son Judge John
Harvey till 1820, when he built a new house for himself, now
a hotel, the " Harvey House." It commanded a fine view of
Harvey pond, or lake, as it is now called, and here his former
companions in arms were always welcome to a generous hos-
pitality. His new home was so much superior to most other
dwellings that it caused general comment. His hospitality
was such that he went beyond his means, and he became badly
involved in debt. He began selling his property. In 1790 he
sold John Blydenburgh, of Durham, 168 acres and buildings,
being the whole of lot No. 20, and 50 acres of lot 19, south of
the pond. In 1791 he sold other lots. (Rockingham Deeds,
cxxvii: 433, 521 ; cxxix : 127.) April 23, 1795, his son bought

back lot 21, about 100 acres, for £50, which his father had
sold March 21, 1791, and also bought of Sherburne Blake for
•1800 the lands sold John Blydenburgh, Aug. 31, 1790. (Rock-
ingham Deeds, cxli: 17-19.) He also paid many debts con-
tracted by his father. Later, Col. Harvey went "down East,"
as Maine was called, to visit some friends, old soldiers. One
of the daughters of Jonathan Harvey of Nottingham had also
settled in what is now the town of Deering (see p. 16). He
went to what is now the town of Westbrook. The town of
Falmouth was incorporated in 1718, and included the present
towns of Portland, Falmouth, Cape Elizabeth, Westbrook and
Deering. Westbrook was set off and incorporated as Stroud-
water in 1814, and in 1815 the name was changed to West,
brook. Deering was set off and incorporated in 1871. He
resided at the house of Azuba Quinby, near Nason's corner,
widow of Joseph Quinby, a Revolutionary soldier, and here he
died in February, 1812. It is not known where he was buried.
In the Massachusetts Records, in a Muster Roll for 1777 at
the camp near Valley Forge, the name of Joseph Quinby occurs,
credited to the town of Falmouth, who enlisted Jan. 1, 1777,
for three years. Till 1820 Maine was a part of Massachusetts.

It is not known when John Harvey went to Maine ; but the
Rev. Caleb Bradley, locally known as Parson Bradley (H. U.
1795), who died in 1861, records in his Diary, June 24, 1799,
a subscription of $2.00 from John Harvey towards his settle-
ment as minister. He died here during one of his visits.
