S/O Peter and Sarah Ann (Allen) Firestone H/O Lydia Armstrong
Update note - American Leigion Post 290 was named after him, but not certain he served in military? Needs to be researched. Location of post near his family farm. Was it because he was famous?
Per history of Fairfield Twp pg 53 Pleasant Valley one room school house was located one mile east of the junction of Route 7 and the New Springfield Road.- The original school was built of logs by the land owners in 1830. Benjamin Firestone, father of Harvey, was the first teacher of ten or twelve pupils. In 1855 the log school was abandoned for a new frame building known as the Hisey School. This building endured until 1874 when Thomas Piper took over the school house and attached it to his new frame house for use as a kitchen. The third building was built near the same spot.
