THE FAMILY OF HENCE HARVEY SR.

Hence Harvey was born a slave on December 27, 1849 in Lauderdale County, Mississippi, where he spent his entire life. The eldest of six children ( 4 boys and 2 girls ), he was, in his own words, " 15 when the emancipation came ". Hence Harvey accepted Christ at an early age and joined Antioch Baptist Church in Daleville, Mississippi, where he served as deacon until his health no longer permitted him to do so.

Hence Harvey was the father of eighteen children - 10 boys and 8 girls.
By order of birth, his children were:
Laura Harvey Macmillan - ( mother of three )
Rent Harvey - ( father of four )
Minerva Harvey Barfield - ( mother of two )
Bob Harvey - ( father of one )
Henrietta Harvey Price - ( mother of one )
Frank Eugene Harvey - ( father of nine )
Nancy Harvey Harris McDonald - ( mother of one )
Arlinda Harvey Cole - ( mother of three )
Marion Harvey - ( father of eight )
Bessie Harvey White - ( no children )
Mattie Harvey - ( mother of one )
Sam Madison Harvey - ( no children )
John H. Harvey - ( father of six )
Hence Harvey Jr. - ( no children )
Willie Harvey - ( father of four )
John Harvey - ( no children )
Carolyn Harvey Abney - ( no children )
Rollie Harvey Sr. - ( father of eight )

Of these eighteen children, all are deceases - including Willie Harvey of Chicago, who died July 7, 2004 and Carolyn Harvey Abney of Meridian, who died March 15, 2008.

Hence Harvey was the grandfather of no less than fifty one grandchildren and a host of great, great - great, and great - great -great grandchildren.

Hence Harvey's legacy is both splendid and magnanimous. As we reflect on the patriarch of our extraordinary and admirable family, we know that his heart would surely be filled with pride and love. Here we have a myriad of colors and a blending of our similarities and differences into a wonderous rainbow that is as strong as it is beautiful. We are bound one to another because we share a common heritage, a loving bond that is strong and enduring. We are the children of Hence Harvey Sr.
