  • ID: I0677
  • Name: Harvey Louis (YES , he's the Harris) EDMONDS 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 10 JUN 1874 in Jefferson, Tennessee. Not born in 1870. Father's pension application says 1874. 1900 census says June 1873
  • Death: 1948 in Clinton, Indiana
  • Note:
    Harvey isn't listed in the 1880 census. There's "Harris" who is listed as 7. That's Harvey of course. On Elmore's application for Civil War Pension in both April and July 1898 he said Harvey's birthdate was 10 June 1874. All the kids are listed in order of birth and Thomas is listed before Harvey both times. On the 1900 census Harvey lists birth date of Jun 1873. That works also according to the early censuses. The 1870 census was taken 14 June 1870. There is no Harvey listed as a newborn. Giving him a birthdate of 15 June 1870 takes care of that except Elmore didn't think that's when he was born. The 1880 census from 11 June lists "Harris" (no Harvey listed) age 7. Those early censuses have less age bias because the information usually comes from the parents and age and time haven't influenced memory of the family members. By the 1920 census with his parents long gone his age suddenly surges to 49. Totally out of character of the first three censuses over a 40-year period that had him RIGHT ON THE MONEY! The 1930 has him at 59. Neither Harvey's or Ammar's cemetery records list a birth year much less a birth DAY. Who can share the death certificate image? Thanks.
