Harrison, Harvey Died 1922 Laurens NY Obituary


"Harvey Harrison, a well known resident of Laurens township, died at his home about two miles from the village on the Mt. Vision road at 5:30 o'clock Wednesday evening of last week, death being attributed to neuralgia of the heart.  He suffered some injuries a few weeks ago when his team ran away and he never fully recovered from them.  Mr. Harrison was the son of the late William Harrison and Susan Bowen and was born sixty-eight years ago on the Harrison homestead near what was then known as Harrison's Mills, later known as Brewster's Mills.  He resided there until his marriage to Miss Anna Mickle after which he purchased a farm in the Butternut valley about two miles from Morris village where they resided for fifteen years and more.  About twenty years ago he purchased the farm where he has since made his home.  Mr. Harrison at one time represented his town on the Board of Supervisors and was a justice of the peace of that place at the time of his death.  He was a good citizen and all who knew him will learn with regret of his demise.  He was a member of the Mt. Vision grange.  His wife died about seven years ago.  Surviving him are eight children:  Ira of Roseboom, Verne of Toddsville, Lee of Utica, Horace residing at home, Miss Edna also at home, Mrs. Percy Wilson of Hartwick, Mrs. Robert McKennan of Cooperstown and Mrs. William Shove of Milford.  He leaves also two brothers, James Harrison of 14 Pine street, Oneonta, and Horace Harrison of West Oneonta.  To all the relatives the sympathy of many friends will be extended.  The funeral was held Saturday from his late home with interment in Hillington cemetery at Morris."  ["The Otsego Farmer & Republican" (Cooperstown, NY), Nov. 17, 1922]
