91st PA: William Wilson Harvey

William Wilson Harvey

Before the war

He was born on 8 March 1845, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to John Harvey and Hannah Marple. [sources: date: 13, 24; 5 (18 in ?1864), 15 (66 in 1911), 18 (27 in 1870), 21 (35 in 1880), 22 (Apr 1845), 23 (66 in 1910), 25 (15 in 1860). place: 5, 18, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25. parents: 24, 25]

In 1860, he was living in ward 20, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with John and Hannah Harvey (presumably his parents), with Joseph, Sarah, Phebia, John, and Hannah Harvey (presumably his siblings), and with William Harvey (perhaps an uncle). [source: 25]

When he enlisted, he was a type founder. [source: 5]

Description

When he enlisted, he was 5 feet 6-1/2 inches tall, and had a fair complexion, blue eyes, and dark hair. [source: 5]

During the war

On 30 December 1863, Sinex reported that he was one of 30 men who had more than fifteen months to serve who were willing to reenlist. On 2 January 1864, he was transferred to the 155th Pennsylvania Infantry, while those eligible were on veterans' leave. [sources: 2, 3]

He enlisted and was mustered into service [reenlisted?] on 18 February 1864. He was enlisted for three years, at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by Lieutenant Shipley. He was mustered in as a private at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a private in company D. [sources: 1, 5, 6, 7, 11, 13, 28, 29, 30]

He was wounded on 9 May 1864 at Wilderness Virginia. [sources: 1, 6, 10]

He was discharged at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 16 May 1865 by general order, Secretary of War, dated 2 May 1865. He was a private, in company D. [sources: 1, 4, 5 (3 May), 6, 7 (16 May), 9 (?), 11, 13 (16 May), 28, 29, 30]

After the war

On 23 June 1867, he married Emmaline Durborow, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She was born in 1850/51, in Pennsylvania. They apparently had at least these children:

[sources: 15, 17, 18, 19, 21]

In 1870, he was (apparently) living in ward 20, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with Emma (presumably his wife), and with Ella and Emma (presumably their children). He was a printer, and owned $100 in personal property. [source: 18]

On 1 July 1871, his daughter, Emma Virginia Harvey, died, of cholera infantum. She died at 1428 Prospect Street, 20th Ward, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On 5 July 1871, she was buried, at American Mechanics Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 20]

On 11 January 1872, his daughter, Ella May Harvey, died, of hydro-cerebro-meiningitis [sic]. She died at 1428 Prospect Street, 20th Ward, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On 15 January 1872, she was buried, in American Mechanics Cemetery, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. [source: 19]

In 1880, he was living at 917 Kurtz Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his wife Emma, children Blanche and William, and his mother-in-law Mary Durvow [?]. He was a butcher. [sources: 16, 21]

In 1890, he was living at 1123 Girard Avenue, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was a butcher. [sources: 7, 16]

On 5 August 1891, he successfully applied from Pennsylvania for a pension. [sources: 11, 12]

On 7 June 1891, his wide, Emma Harvey, died. On 11 June 1891, she was buried from her husband's residence, 1123 West Girard Avenue, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Members of Kedron Lodge, no. 21, ML, were invited to attend the funeral. She was buried in Fernwood Cemetery. [source: 17]

In 1894 and 1897, he was still living at 1123 Girard Avenue, and was still a butcher (or at least selling meat). [source: 16]

In 1900, he may be the William Harvey living on Limekiln Pike, Ward 21, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. If so, he was living with Cathrine Harvey (presumably his daughter). He was a day laborer. [source: 22]

Perhaps he is the Wiloliam W Harvey, salesman, at 2518 N Warnock Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylania, in 1903-1904. [source: 16]

In 1905, his daughter Florence M Harvey married Benjamin F Cook. [source: 27]

He was living at 3639 North Camac Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, by 1906. He was a salesman. [source: 16]

He again applied for a pension on 14 May [?] 1907. [source: 11]

In 1910, he was living at 3639 Camac Street, ward 43, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was living with his daughter Florence and her family. He was a broom salesman. [source: 23]

On 23 August 1911, he died, suddenly, at 1203 West Columbia Avenue, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He died of heart disease. He was a broom salesman. Funeral services were held at his late residence, 3639 North Camac Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. On 27 August 1911, he was buried in Fernwood Cemetery, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. [sources: 11 (1912), 13, 14, 15, 24]

Note on identification

The evidence below indicates that the William Harvey born to Rodney and Mary in New York, is not the William Harvey who served in the 91st. (a) He was born about 1857 (according to the earliest record I have seen, the 1860 census, although the 1900 census has him born in December 1843). (b) He was born in New York, and his wife was born in England, although the 1910 census entry transcribed below indicates they were born in Pennsylvania. (c) The William Harvey in the 1880 census entry transcribed below matches the William Harvey who served in the 91st much better.
