murphysmom 2 years, 10 months ago on Veterans to post Confederate flag at Steamboat cemetery

This should put an end to the question of what flag to place on Mr. Harvey's grave:

William Edward Harvey b. 04 Feb 1839 in Madison County, Kentucky, USA. He was the 6th child of 13 born to William Harvey b. 10 Oct 1808 Richmond, Madison, KY; d. 17 Mar 1885 Meadville, Linn, MO; and Martha Patience Gates b. 10 Mar 1809 near Richmond and the James River, Chesterfield Co., Virginia.; d. 20 Sep 1873 Meadville, Linn, MO. William and Martha were married 15 Oct 1829 in Madison Co., KY.

Siblings of William Edward Harvey were: James Epps Harvey 1830-1902, Nancy Jane Harvey 1832-1908, Cynthia Patience Harvey 1834-1907, Rebecca Ann Gates Harvey 1835-1870, Susan Margaret "Meg" Harvey 1832-1925, Martha Mildred Harvey 1841- 1913, Mary Ellen Harvey 1842 -1901, George Andrew Harvey 1845-1933, Bernetta "Betty" Harvey 1847-1886, Sarah Catherine Harvey 1849-1866, Elizabeth Norris Harvey 1851- 1937, and a baby girl Harvey b. 1853-1853.

He was a Union Soldier, mustering in as a Corporal, and mustering out as a Private. He was never married. There are at least 4 trees on ancestry.com that feature this William Edward Harvey.

As verification; the obituary for William E. Harvey states that he had a nephew; L.O. Harvey of Texas.

L.O. was Louis Owen Harvey b. 1869 Meadville, Linn, MO, d. 1921 Dallas, Dallas, TX. "L.O." was the son of William's brother, George Andrew Harvey and his wife Cornelia Josephine Jacques. This relationship verifies that this is without a doubt the right family for the William Edward Harvey in this article.
