HARVEY ATHERHOLT, a farmer, P.O. Dallas, was born May 8, 1844, in Kingston township, this county, where he was reared and educated. He is a son of David and Charlotte (Anderson) Atherholt, the former born in Kingston, the latter in Dallas. David was a son of Christian Atherholt who, with his brother Frederick, moved from Berks county to this county in its early settlement, locating in Kingston township, north of Luzerne borough; where they purchased ninety acres of land each. Christian was the father of seven children, one of whom is now (1891) living. David, his son, began life as a farmer, and was successful and practical; the ninety acres Christian had soon grew to three hundred under his masterly touch. Not only was he a practical farmer, but also a good cooper and an excellent blacksmith, and he accumulated his large property by a perseverance and honest industry. Besides his farm, he owned the property known as the "Hancock place." After a life of usefulness and toil, he departed this life January 3, 1891, at the age of eight-seven years. His family numbered six children, five of whom are at this writing living, Harvey being the first in the family. He has always confined himself to agricultural pursuits. At the age of twenty-six, he married Miss Eugene, daughter of Charles and Sarah Scovill, and by her had children as follows: Judson, Jesse, Boyd, Frank, James, Annie, Jacob and Daisy, all yet single. Mrs. Eugene (Scovill) Atherholt was born at Kingston township in 1852. Harvey Atherholt, like his father, is a practical farmer, residing on a farm of eighty-four acres, on which he moved in 1885. He is a general agriculturist, and raises a mixed crop. As a farmer, he is industrious; as a husband, he is kind; as a citizen, he is loyal; politically he is a Republican.
