Mrs. Harvey was born and reared in Talbot county Georgia. Together with the family she moved to Columbus about thirty years ago and since that time had made her home in this city where until her recent feebleness she was active in church work and always earnest in her efforts for the uplift of her community. She was a faithful and consistent member of St. Luke church during the entire time of her residence in this city. Besides the immediate family and relatives scores of friends deplore her death.
