Harvey Brock


Harvey Brock was probably born in Lincoln County, Kentucky around 1793.  He married Matilda Jones on November 13, 1833 in Lincoln County, Kentucky.  Matilda was born January 29, 1814 and died January 22, 1892.  Soon after their marriage, Harvey and Matilda moved to Missouri.  Records indicate they lived in both Macon and Randolph Counties as early as the 1830s.  In the 1840 census, Harvey was listed as living in Randolph County.  The 1840 census listing was as follows:


Head of Household:  Harvy Brock

Male under 40: 1

Female under 30: 1 

Male under 10: 1 

Male under 5: 1

Female under 5: 1


The 1860 Census listed Matilda with several children, but Harvey was not listed at all.  Note that James is already married and not part of the household.  He and his wife are listed separately.  Miles is still living at home, and baby Harvy is only 3 years old.  This indicates that Harvey must have died in the late 1850s.  There is evidence that Harvey had at least 9 children.
