He alone saved the Wild Turkey (Meleagris gallopavo silvestris) from being becoming extinct when he was Chairman of Virginian Wildlife. Yes this is the Bird which the Country TURKEY attained that name. Tom, hen , and poults all.

RE: William Franklin Harvie
John Harvie Jr's (20 Dec 1706 - 3 Dec 1767) oldest son Daniel and his wife Sarah "Sallie" Talliaferro are my 5X grandparents.
I am descended down from their daughter Sarah Harvey (1780-1846) and her husband John McGee,
their son Peter McGee (1807-1880) and his wife Judy Lively,
their daughter Elizabeth McGee (1826-1899) and her husband John Calvin "Rebel John" Ballard,
their son Joel Ballard (1851-1932) and his second wife Virginia Margaret Allen,
their daughter Mary Ballard (1891-1981) and her husband Royal Sweeney,
their daughter Ada Marie (1921-2010) and her husband Ernest Brown were my parents.
Those family names are still common in southwestern WV where I live.

Since Daniel was born in March 1742, before John Jr & Martha Gaines were legally married in Oct 1742, I guess they named him after her father to keep peace in the family. I am puzzled by his delay to marry so late in life, most of my ancestors were married somewhere between 13 and 23, as was the case for Martha. It would not surprise me to find someday that he had an earlier wife & family in Scotland.

Through John Calvin Ballard, I have a second branch of Harveys on my tree (and I have found no connection between the two) that goes all the way back to one John Harvey (1630-1679) of Staffordshire, England who md Dorothy Mary Tooke of Accomack, VA. That entire line spells the last name Harvey. No "ie" anywhere.

I have not been to the portion of VA where William lived, but I have been over to the area where the Belmont estate belonging to John Harvie, Jr & the adjoining estates of Edgehill & Shadwell once were. Montecello appears to be the only one left intact.

I had never heard that about T Jefferson. He must have been very polite, or too tired, not to have told them the president needed a seat. Talk about 'servant of the people'. Shame we don't have manners anymore, just political correctness.

My dad's lineage goes back through the Brown-Foster-Hughes-Grigsby line to "Mary" Wahanganoche, daughter of Chief Wahanganoche of the Patawomeck tribe. I have heard Pocahontas is also somewhere in his ancestry through the Christian Petty family and Ka-Okee, but that could be just family lore.

I'd be curious to know what drew so many of John Harvie Jr's children to want to move to Georgia, other than that their mother & sister were there. Even Daniel, who had lived in beautiful Monroe County (now in WV) for many years, up and bought land there at age 52. He was still working at clearing the land to build a home, when he died of exertion after fishing. Too old & fat I suppose. He weighed over 400 pounds. Sallie moved to Augusta County, VA where she died 2 years later.

Thanks for writing & Happy Hunting!

My computer will not allow me to use the newly infuriating "I am not a robot" feature to send certain edits. You have William as being born in 1769. That is 2 years after his father died. My records show he was born Feb 12, 1761. Everything else looks good except that his father was not Col. John Harvie...that was one of his brothers who is buried in the Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA. His father, and the father of Col. John Harvie, was simply John Harvie Jr, of Gargunnock, Scotland. John Jr was the son of John Sr & Margaret Kay of Scotland.

Thank you for taking the time to reply to my message! Are you saying that you are related to William Dabney Abbott from your mother's side? Do you have any photos or additional information on him?

Relations to William Dabney Abbott

I noticed that you left flowers as well as a message on William Dabney Abbott's grave and was wondering if you were related to him? He's my 2nd great grandfather and I'm still trying to learn more information on him. Would you happen to have any photos or any additional information on him? I would appreciate it, thanks!

RE: Wrong Picture
I am sorry for the long delay in responding to you. Is it possible for you to supply a picture of Isabella Bloomfield?

I noticed that you left flowers for my 3great grandfather Isaac Van Wart, and also his father in law,James Duryea, Pascack Cemetery in Park Ridge NJ. Thank you for honoring them in this way. Are you somehow connected to my family, or is this something you enjoy doing out of the goodness of your heart? For James Duryea, you left a Masonic symbol. For Isaac Van Wart, you left a Masonic symbol, and the letters R P after his name. Does that indicate that they were Masons? Thank you for any insights! I've been working on my family genealogy for years, and am always happy to find new clues and information. For whatever reason you leave flowers and other tributes, thank you for caring. Pat
