The Addison Alphonso Harvey Story From the Harvey Family History Book Addison A. Harvey, more often called Add by his family and friends, was the sixth child born to Robert & Elizabeth Harvey. At some time previous to his birth his parents had rented another farm and moved there. This place was another two miles from the home farm and half mile to the school called Banner School, to which he would go when he was old enough to attend. He was born November 20, 1857, at this rented farm. The house has not been in existence for many years. This farm was also but a half mile from the country cemetery that was in later years to be the resting place for many of his family. His father, his mother, two brothers and two sisters were taken there before he and his wife, and his two sons were laid to rest in later years. Uncles, Aunts, and cousins of the Harvey's also were buried in this cemetery. This burial plot was set aside for such purposes when the Robert Davidson family first came to Winnebago County in 1856. Robert Davidson and his wife, Susannah (Baldry) gave one acre of land to the Rushford Cemetery Association on March 29, 1862 for the purpose of a burial ground. It was on a high piece of ground. Through the years additions were made to it. Addison Harvey attended the Banner School first; then, when his parents moved back to the home farm, he attended the Knowles School that was one and one-half miles north of their home. Today the Enterprise School is located on the northeast corner of land that Robert and Elizabeth Harvey claimed for a homestead in 1850. The recreational room of this Enterprise School building sits on the very spot that the log house was built for them when they arrived from Buffalo. New York. When Add was a boy Whippoorwills called from the wooded plots, which were much larger then, and there were several ponds in the lower parts, which later were drained. The John Baldry family live on half mile to the south of the Harvey farm. The three Baldry boys, cousins of the Harvey boys and living so near, made for many a happy time among them all. Add once told of a wintery day when the Baldry boys, feeling the monotony of the long winter, put up a dare to the one who was brave enough to run barefoot to the Harvey house down the road. It was Lorenzo Baldry who took the dare and raced through the snow to the house of the Harvey boys, a half mile away. Reports were he was none the worse for his daring trip. As a young man Add spent several winters working in the north woods. In spring the return trip might be made by a team of horses or he might have to walk much of the way. August 9, 1888 he was married to Alice Gertrude Cook, daughter of Tilden C. Cook and Caroline (Turner) Cook. One winter Alice went north with him and worked as camp cook at the logging station. Their first child, George Lewis Harvey, was born July 4, 1890. They were living with Alice's parents at that time but a year later rented a farm nearby, and it was in September of 1894 that their second child, Eunice Viola Harvey was born. A year later a small house was built on a forty acre piece of the Tilden Cook farm, and Add, Alice and two children went to live there. In the spring of 1897 Add and Alice moved to a farm nearer to Omro known as the Burnam farm. This they rented for two years, also working their own 40 acres near the Cooks. It was while they were living on this farm that Sherman Tilden Harvey was born, September 7, 1899. The next spring the family moved back to their small house on their 40 acres that had been a part of Tilden Cook's farm. Plans were made for a larger house and in the summer of 1902 the new house was put up on it was ready to be occupied by mid-October that year. George Lewis Harvey always called Lewis by his family, never married. Neither did his younger brother Sherman. Extra farm land was rented that adjoined the home farm and both boys remained home to help work it. October 17, 1912, Eunice married Glen Fisher, whose family lived directly across the road from the Harveys. Their four children were the only grandchildren that Addison and Alice Harvey had. Addison suffered long years with a heart condition that first became apparent in his earlier years, yet he was able to carry on his farm with the help of his sons. He lived to be 78 years old; his death came November 22, 1935. Alice had comparatively good health until the spring of 1943, when she became ill and she died August 4, 1943 at 74 years, and 8 months. Lewis and Sherman lived alone after her death and continued working the farm. July 11, 1953 Sherman was killed instantly when he fell from a hay loft in the big barn, while after straw for the farm animals. Lewis also suffering from a heart condition, lived on alone until he became ill in March of 1958 and was taken to the home of Eunice and Glenn Fisher. He never regained his health and died September 19, 1961. Left with the homestead, Eunice could not continue with the management of it and it was sold to James Tritt. The Harvey home that Addison and Alice had worked hard to build was now in the hands of others to take over. It was in need of some repair and improvements were made. The pine trees planted by Addison were now large. New families moved into the house, to find enjoyment living there, just as Addison and Alice and their children had.
