Daniel W. and Samantha Greeson Harvey 

Samantha, the third child of John and Sophia Farmer Greeson, was born on September 19, 1855 in Morgan County, Indiana.  She married Daniel W. Harvey born about 1851.  Daniel was also of Morgan County.  The couple had six children, with Samantha dying the month of her sixth child’s birth. 

The six children were: 

Barney E., b. 1874

Annie L., b. 1876

Charles A., b. 1878

Raleigh G., b. 1880

Clarence Otis, b. 1885

William G., b. 1887             

Samantha and Daniel are found in the following census records:

1880 in White Cloud township, Mills, Iowa with Barney, Annie, and Charles

1895 in Indian Creek, Mills, Iowa with the five oldest children

Daniel and his second wife, Anna, are found in the following census records: 

1905 in Rawles, Mills, Iowa

1925 in Tabor, Mills, Iowa

1930 in White Cloud township, Mills, Iowa 

William G. is in the 1900 census with John and Sophia.  He is age 13.  As he never appears in a census with his father and siblings, perhaps he was raised by his maternal grandparents after his mother died following his birth.
