More About James B. Harvey:
Burial: Johnson Cem., VanBuren Twp., Keokuk Co. IA.

Notes for Mary Elizabeth Jane " Elizabeth" Junkins:

I am trying to gather information on the James and Mary HARVEY family, from Van Buren Twp., Keokuk Co., Iowa. I have a mystery I am trying to solve. I believe my ancestor, Augustus L. HARVEY, adopted the name HARVEY from the family he was raised by. On the 1860 census, an A.L. ANDERSON, age 8, is listed with Jane ANDERSON (30), James (50) and Mary (46) HARVEY, and Rachel FRIEND (18). On the 1870 census, A.L. ANDERSON (18) is listed as a farm laborer at the HARVEY's farm. (No Jane) Then in 1880 he is listed as Augustavus L. (27), border at the HARVEY's. Later that year, Augustavus marries using the last name of HARVEY and uses in throughout his life. He even refers to James and Mary as his parents on legal documents. According to census, Mary was childless. The HARVEY's did leave Augustus property in their will and they are all buried together. I believe Mary had a sister named Jane JUNKINS (married name).
Any information on this family would be greatly! appreciated! Thank you

Robyn Ashton

Mary Elizabeth Jane Junkins married James B. Harvey in Virginia ( now WV ). They had no children, and came to Iowa in 1855 a year after Gazaway and Ruth and family came.

In the Will of Mary Elizabeth Jane Harvey, She leaves land to Augustus L. A. Harvey and John S. Junkins. A sum of one doller each was left to : James W. Junkins, Nelson Junkins, Margaret Cole, Marion ,( could be Howard ) Junkins, Martha Grossman and Benjamin Junkins. The remained was to be divided between John S. Junkins and Augustus L. A. Harvey. ( Augustus Luther Anderson Harvey ) took the name Harvey while with living with James B. Harvey and Mary Elizabeth Jane Junkins Harvey. Benjamin, husband of Elizabeth Mary Jane, had a sister, Margaret Junkins, that married James Anderson 3-20-1820. Augusta went to live with James B. and Mary Elizabeth Harvey at a early age. He came with them from Viginia to Iowa in 1855 at the age 18 months.

Mary Elizabeth Jane's uncle, John W. Junkins second wife was Elizabeth Anderson b. 4-25-1816. Could James Anderson and Elizabeth be related to Augustus? Need more info on the Anderson family.

I suspect that Augustus' mother may be the Jane ANDERSON listed on the 1860
federal census, age 30 and living w/ James and Mary HARVEY, Racheal FRIEND
(18), and A.L. ANDERSON (8). I have not been able to find out what happened to this Jane - maybe she married, died or moved away. Of course, she could have been married and they gave her
maiden name too... The only reason I say that is this family never gave the same answer twice
Augustus HARVEY is my GG Grandfather. ( Robyn Ashton - June 2001 )

More About James Harvey and Mary Junkins:
Marriage: September 22, 1833, Hampshire Co., VA ( now Mineral Co., WV)

Child of James Harvey and Mary Junkins is:
+ 6 i. Augustus Luther Anderson5 Harvey, born March 27, 1852 in Hampshire Co. ( now Mineral Co. ) WV; died August 13, 1910 in Keokuk Co., IA.

3. Gazaway4 Harvey, Jr. (Gazaway3, William2, William1) was born Abt. 1814 in Hampshire Co., VA (now Mineral Co., WV ), and died January 26, 1879 in VanBuren Twp, Keokuk Co. IA.. He married (1) Ruth Junkins, daughter of Benjarmin Junkins and Elizabeth //. She was born Abt. 1817 in Hampshire Co. VA (now Mineral Co.), W.Va., and died 1856 in VanBuren Twp, Keokuk Co. IA.. He married (2) Mahala Nelson November 04, 1860. She was born in Illinois.

Notes for Gazaway Harvey, Jr.:
Could this Gazaway Harvey b. Abt. 1814 be the son of Gazaway Harvey b. 7-11-779 son William Harvey Jr. and Margaret Beall ( Bell ) ?
Could Gazaway Harvey b. Abt. 1814 and James B. Harvey b. 1810 be brothers ?

( The answer probable Yes ) From the notes of Nellie ( Mary Ellen Harvey ) daughter of Ruth Junkins Harvey and Gazaway Harvey. ( Charles William Harvey- March 2000 )

I believe Gazaway born in Hampshire about 1814 and James B. also born in Hampshire about1810 are her ( Eliza ) brothers, sons of Gazaway, Sr.. Henry and Eliza Harvey White moved to Garnett Co. Md. and had 4 children. They moved to Van Buren,Keokuk Co. Ia. in 1854. This is about the same time that Gazaway and James moved from Van Buren. ( Barbara Rowell ) 2001

Notes for Ruth Junkins:
Ruth Junkins Married Gazaway Harvey in Virginia and they had 9 Children, all born in Hampshire Co., ( now Mineral Co., WV ) on the plantation of the father of Ruth. They came to Iowa in 1854, lived in half the log cabin of another brother of Gazaway ( not James Harvey, who came one year later ) that first winter in Iowa.

Nellie gave no name for the brother of her father, in her life story, only that they spent that first winter there.

Ruth died in 1856 and Gazaway married a second time on November 4, 1860, Mahala Nelson from Illinois, and they had just one daughter--- Hester J. Harvey b 1863

This post is most interesting to us. My girlfriend is a HARVEY, but we have been stonewalled in PA in the 1850's. Some of the other surnames in her lines came from Garret Co. Maryland, and we suspect that her HARVEY's may have come from there or from WV. The earliest HARVEY we have found in her line is Richard b. 1857 in Connelsville, Fayette Co., PA. His father is UNK and mother is Hester or Hesler ?. She decends as follows: Richard, Frank, b. 1885, d. 1919, Frank, b. 1916, d. 1969, Gerald, b. 1938, d. 1994. Other surnames traced to MD are MANAHAN, WILT, FOX. BROADWATER. One of Richard children moved from PA to MD, and was there when he died. Does any of this fit?

Pete, Sorry, I don't have a Richard who's father was born in the UK. This could be another Harvey line. There was another Harvey line that also came from Frederick Co., MD and moved to Washington Co., PA. I have no info on this line. I do have the sir names Wilt, Fox and Broadwater in my family file. If you could give me some data on these names, maybe I can come up with something. Charles
