He was well known all over South-West Georgia, also Campbell county where he had lived for several years. He found true friends wherever he went. He was a member of the Primitive Baptist church and was baptized by Elder Burnett in 1845. He was a faithful Christian and and death found him with his armor on, and ready for the summons that called him home. As a citizen, he was honored and respected, and as a Christian he was worthy of his calling. He had been twice married. First to Mary I. Simmons in 1838, who died in 1848, and second to Mrs. Ethella Culpepper, nee Fears, who survives him. He also leaves one daughter, (by first wife) four sisters and a host of relatives and friends [not] to mourn their loss, but to rejoice in his gain. We sorrow not, therefore, as those who have no hope, but trust the departed has gone to that happy clime. (Transcribed 9/21/02 Lynn Cunningham.)1

Death*before 7 Jul 1823 He died at Hancock Co., Georgia, before 7 Jul 1823.1 
Biography* REV. JOHN HARVEY, 1749-1823. In the official records of the state of Georgia and several of the Georgia counties, and in publications relating to the early Baptist Church activities in Georgia, are found quite a number of references to John Harvey and other members of his family during the period from 1775 to 1823.
     John Harvey was a son of Thomas Harvey, most likely the oldest of four sons, the others being James and Evan and Michael. He was born about 1749, presumably in Virginia, there being strong evidence that the Harvey family was in Lunenburg and Charlotte and Bedford counties, Va., in the eighteenth century.When the "Ceded Lands" were acquired by Georgia from the Creek and Cherokee Indians in June 1773, numerous settlers from Virginia and North Carolina were attracted to Georgia by the opportunity of acquiring land under the "headright system" of allotment. Land courts were held at Augusta, Dartmouth, Wrightsborough and Broad River at various times in 1773 to 1775. The land thus granted was in Wilkes and Washington counties principally.
     The first Georgia record of John Harvey is found in the proceedings of the land court held at Wrightsborough January 13, 1775, when he was authorized to take up 200 acres resigned by Joseph Miller of North Carolina, located on the first branch below Red Lick Creek on the Ogeechee River. This record describes John Harvey "of South Carolina, with wife and daughters three and one years old." It is quite likely these daughters were Mary Harvey and Ruth Harvey who are the first two children mentioned in his will. At the same sitting of the Court, entries were made for two men whose names are found associated with John Harvey's in later records, Cader Powell and Elijah Clarke, described as from Craven County, S. C.
     During the Revolution, John Harvey, with his brothers, James and Evan and Michael, and their father, Thomas Harvey, fought under General Elijah Clarke. The name of Elijah Clarke's son Elijah appears as a witness to the will of John Harvey's son, James Harvey, who died in Baldwin County in 1808.
     Grants of land for services in the Revolution were made to John Harvey, Thomas Harvey, James Harvey, Michael Harvey, Henry Graybill, Moses Powell, Kodar Powell and James Hogg, by the Executive Council of the State of Georgia in November 1783, the grants being taken by John Harvey for himself and the others. In July 1784, similar grants were made to James Harvey, Evan Harvey, Cader Powell and others and in September 1784 to John Harvey and James Harvey in Wilkes County and in December 1784 to John Harvey and Michael Harvey in Washington County.
     The "Early Records of Wilkes County" make mention of a deed from John Harvey of Wilkes County to Robert Beasley of Lunenburg County, Va., for 5371h acres on Fishing Creek under date of January 7, 1785.
     In January 1786, Elijah Clark received a warrant for 3162'/ acres on bounty certificates, one of which was in the name of John Harvey.
     Deeds made in 1784 by James Harvey and his wife, Sarah, and in 1785 by Moses Powell, Sr., and his wife Mary, and in 1787 by John White and his wife Jean, bore the name of John Harvey as a witness.
     The tax digest for Wilkes County for 1786 shows John Harvey as owner of 300 acres and 170 acres on the Ogeechee River in Captain John Winne's district.
     John Harvey is mentioned in Knight's "Roster of Georgia Soldiers of the Revolution" as drawing land in Franklin County, May 10, 1784, on Warrant No. 1202 through certificate of Colonel James McNeil.
     Reference is also made to a grant to him in Washington County. Miss Margaret B. Harvey's "List of Georgia Revolutionary Soldiers" includes the name of John Harvey. In the land drawing in 1821 in Clarke County, in which he drew a lot in Irwin County, he is described as a Revolutionary soldier.
     The Georgia Baptist Association was in existence in 1785 and in its membership included Kiokee Church of Columbia County, with which church John Harvey is said to have been affiliated first. When the Association met at Fishing Creek in October 1792 with delegates representing fifty-six churches, John Harvey was present. He was a delegate from the Bethel Association in October 1797 at the meeting at Clark's Station in Wilkes County.
     From Jesse Mercer's "History of the Georgia Baptist Association," published in 1838 at Washington, Ga., the following is quoted:
     "John Harvey - was born in Virginia in what year we are not informed. He removed to Georgia when quite a young man and united himself with Kiokia Church, Columbia County. During his connection with this church, he commenced his labors as a minister. After the Revolutionary War, he removed into the neighborhood of Powell's Creek Meeting House, near Powellton, and became a member of that church. In the first part of his ministry, he was not fully established in the doctrines of grace, but afterward, through the instrumentality of Rev. Silas Mercer - in the language of our informant, he became "a very rigid Predestinarian" and" so continued until his death. In the year 1789, he removed to Washington County and united with the Providence Church, now in Jefferson County. Here he was ordained to the ministry. He died triumphantly in Clarke County in the seventy-fourth year of his age."
     John Harvey seems to have been a resident of Hancock County about the time his father, Thomas Harvey, is presumed to have died, in 1799.
     From the "History of the Baptist Denomination in Georgia" published in 1881, by Franklin Printing Company of Atlanta, we learn that at the Powellton Conferences initiated by Rev. Jesse Mercer, John Harvey was present May 1, 1801, was elected Moderator at the session of April 29, 1802, and was present April 29, 1803, with twenty-three other ordained ministers, one of whom was his son-in-law, Rev. Edmund Talbot, who married his eldest daughter, Mary. The history describes Rev. John Harvey as a "very distinguished and useful minister in his day and President of the Powellton Conference in 1802, being at that time a member of the Powellton Church."
     In May 1802, John Harvey appears to: have distributed several of his slaves to his children and grandchildren, which gifts were confirmed in his will made twenty years later. The records of Hancock County show deeds of gift of slaves to his sons, Isaac Harvey and John Harvey, and to his grandchildren, Patsy Talbot, Isaac Kendrick and John H. Parrott. These instruments were recorded in June 1802 and were witnessed by William Rabun who became Governor of Georgia in 1817.
     In October 1803, John Harvey and his wife Patsy deeded-land on Shoulderbone Creek to their sons, John and Isaac Harvey.
     In December 1802, a deed to Isaac Battle for 200 acres of land was signed in Hancock County by John Harvey, Michael Harvey, Evan Harvey and James Harvey, as administrators of Thomas Harvey.
     In the land drawing of Hancock County in 1806, two draws were allotted Rev. John Harvey, two to his brother James Harvey, and one to "Orphans of Benjamin Kendrick" who were his grandchildren, the children of his daughter, Ruth.
     He seems to have moved to Clarke County in 1808, for in that year he purchased land in Clarke County from Daniel Bankston and his wife, Rachel, from William Reece and his wife, Sarah in 1817, from Gallant Reynolds 1817, from Isaac Humphries 1817, and made a deed of gift there in 1821 to his sons Elijah and Israel and Willis, who are mentioned as "not yet of age." In 1821 he drew a lot in the land lottery of Clarke County.
-------------------------------------------
His will, a most interesting document, is quoted below as it is found upon the records of Clarke County: In the name of God, Amen:
     I, John Harvey, Sr., a citizen of the State of Georgia, in Clarke County, do make and ordain this instrument of writing, wrote with my own hands, to be my last Will and Testament.
     First, that all just debts be paid out of the crop at my decease.
     Also, I have given and delivered to my daughter, Mary, deceased, one negro girl named Betty, also I have given her daughter, Patsey, one negro girl named Fllis, which I have delivered, it being in full of my estate.
     Also, I have given to my daughter, Ruth, deceased, one negro girl named Suck, also I have given to her son, Isaac Kindrick, one negro girl named Young Willet.
     Also, I have given to my son, James, deceased, one negro boy named Mack, and two hundred acres of land.
     Also, I have given to my daughter, Rachel, one negro girl named Abb, also I have given to her son, John Parrott, one negro girl named Dilce, which I have delivered, it being in full of my estate.
     Also, I have given to my daughter, Salley, two negroes, girls named Fanny and Betty, which I have delivered, it being in full of my estate.
     Also, I have given to my son, John, two negro boys named Rubin and Sanker, which is in full of my estate.
     Also, I have given to my son, Israel, two negroes named Young Sesar and Diner.
     Also, I give to my son Willis, two negroes named Cobb and Richmond.
     Also, I give to my three young sons, Elijah, Israel and Willis, the tract of land I now live on except my wife's dowry, also I give to said three the tract of land I purchased from Willson Reece, and tract that I purchased from Gallant Rennels, and tract I purchased from Isaac Humfreys, all to be equally divided when they come of age, also I give to the said three sons, each of them a still apiece, Elijah 74 gallon, Israel 70 gallon, Willis 50 gallon.
     Also, I give my daughter, Ciaremond five negroes named Young Peter and Antney and Tom, girls named Darkes and Nancey.
     Also, it is my will that if any of the four children should die in their non-age, the above property be equally divided with them when they come of age.
     Also, I leave my four old negroes, Ruben, Molley, Sesar and Salley, to work and raise my young children, and if they remain alive until they are of age, I will that the said old negroes have their choice to live with any of my sons they please.
     Also, I give my beloved wife, Patsy, four negroes named Nead, Sealey, Vilet and American during her natural life and at her death to be equally divided between my four young children Elijah and Israel and Willis and Clarmon, also I give my beloved wife one third of the land I now live on with my dwelling house and all my stock of horses, cattle, sheep, hoggs, to raise my children on as she may think best, and I give all my house furniture to my beloved wife during her natural life and at her death, to be equally divided with my four young children Elijah, Israel, Willis and Claremond.
     Also, I ordain and appoint my beloved wife Patsy and my beloved son Elijah and my friend Mr. John W. Graves to be executors of this my last Will and Testament.
     In witness of this being my last Will and Testament I have fixed my seal, signed with my own hand, in the presence of: Wit: Alexander Hunter, William Love, Moses Paul. Nov. 30, 1822. John Harvey     (Seal)
     Georgia - Clarke County: Personally appeared in open court, Alexander Hunter, William Love, and Moses Paul, the subscribing witnesses to, the within will, and being duly sworn, saith they saw John Harvey sign, seal and deliver the within instrument of writing to be his last Will and Testament, and that he was of sound and disposing mind and memory at the time of his so doing, and that they subscribed the same as witnesses. Sworn to in open court July 7, 1823. /s/ A. Hunter, William Love, Moses Paul. Recorded July 8, 1823 in B Book of Wills, Pages 18-20, John H. Lowe, Clerk
-------------------------------------------------
It is evident from a reading of John Harvey's will that his children are listed in the order of their ages, both the living and deceased. It is also clear that the older children were provided for, to some extent at least, as they became of age, since the bulk of the property mentioned in the will is bequeathed to the younger children. Gifts' made to children and grandchildren in the lifetime of the testator are confirmed, especially the slaves distributed in 1802.
     The will of James Harvey, deceased son of John Harvey, made in Baldwin County in 1808, supplements his father's will in many particulars, established the relationship between Isaac Kendrick and Burwell Kendrick and Susan Kendrick, points to the evident fact of the marriage of Ruth Harvey to Benjamin Kendrick when John Harvey was residing in Washington County about 1790, and emphasizes the fact that the Harvey family was on intimate terms with some of the most prominent persons of Upper Georgia in that period, such as General Elijah Clark, General John Scott, Eleazer Early, Robert Rutherford and others.
     The full name of John Harvey's wife is not presently known. She is mentioned as "Patsey" in his will, she signed a deed with her husband in 1803, and as her eldest daughter, Mary Harvey Talbot, had a daughter named Patsey Talbot, it may be inferred that John Harvey was married only once, and that Patsey Harvey was the mother of all his eleven children, and his consort for more than fifty years of married life.
     For almost fifty years John Harvey was a citizen of Georgia at a time when Upper Georgia was being developed by pioneers who cleared the land and steadily moved the frontier westward, not infrequently becoming involved in clashes with the Indians. Coming into Georgia as a young man, apparently with slender resources, depending on the soil for his family's livelihood, it is evident that he was a man of sturdy nature and endowed with talents which fitted him to cope with the problems of those days, to fight for liberty during the eight years of the Revolution, during which his locality was laid waste, and to accumulate a goodly portion of land and cattle and at least thirty-two slaves, all the while rearing a family of eleven children and achieving special prominence in the ministry of the Baptist Church.2
