After the close of the war he built a log house on the south side of Walnut Street, about 50 yards West of Dr. Davis' house, in which he lived for a short time before it was burned. He moved to Nashville where he was actively engaged in the wholesale dry goods business for many years. He was likewise interested in the steamboat business, owning the steamboat L.T. Armstrong which plied the Cumberland River from Nashville to Burnside, KY...Thomas Harvey married Miss Mollie Fisher of Carthage. Many people will remember him as Captain of many steamboats, being considered one of the best navigators on the Cumberland River. He was of a genial disposition and strong personality and loved by all who knew him.
