Remininces by an old resident dated Boston, Nov. 17, 1890 - History of Harvey Corner (Albert Co.) - Dear Sir: Being somewhat at leisure thinking of old times and looking back to the years of 1825 to 1830, I thought I would write the history of Harvey, New Horton and Rocher at the time which might be interesting to some of my old associates, as well as the younger people. We will start from Passmores now Harvey Corner and then go up the hill (then all woods) to the gate that opened to the path leading to the house of grandfather Bray. I suppose it may be interesting to the younger generation to know the names of the families, as I proceed with my letter, Gideon BRAY, Benjamin BRAY, Patty BRAY and Olive BRAY completes this family. We will now return to the highway, onward a few rods was the well known Baptist meeting house merely boarded and shingled with rough boards for seats, used only in warm weather, no fireplace or stove. We move on until we come to John SMITH's farm and residence about one hundred rods to the left, his children by his first wife, Jane SMITH, Nathaniel SMITH, John SMITH, William SMITH and Robert SMITH, his second wife a Mrs. REED, her children, Granville REED, Joseph REED and Susan REED, their children by second marriage, Gilford SMITH, Gilbert SMITH and Eliza SMITH, making a very large and happy family. Mr. Smith was a very successful farmer, was also in the lumbering business having a saw mill at Locher Lake. He was the only magistrate south of Shepody River and a gentleman of high standing in that part of the county. The next farm was owned by David OLIVER who soon after moved to Rocher. Next on the right was Taylor STEVENS on the late John REED farm, his children John STEVENS, Edward STEVENS and Ann STEVENS. Then down to the left was the widow Reed's home Inn holder and fortnightly post-office. Her children were Dunkin REED, Gideon REED, John REED and Ruxby REED, late Mrs. William WEST. Next by the mills lived Dunkin, his children, William, James, Ralph and Susan. The saw and grist mills were the only ones south of Shepody river in 1826. The old saw mill would saw about 6 to 8 per day, finally she was new geared and would keep two or three men very busy. People from all quarters came to see the improvement. Over the brook by the noted old willow tree was Jas. TURNBULL's house, his wife, Sarah daughter of Squire REED, a loyalist to the Crown, who at the time of the Revolutionary war with others moved from Conn. to Horton, N.S., from there to New Horton. He was a manufacturer of shoe and knee buckles which were the fashion in King George time. He had two sons, Benjamin REED and James REED, also two daughters, Sarah REED and Betsy REED. The family of Mr. Turnbull was Rufus REED, Louis HUNT, J.S. DODGE and Jerusha COPP (having no children of their own). Next farm above lived Rev. Nathan CLEVELAND, preacher of the Baptist faith for a good number of years and honest man. On the same farm lived Samuel SLOAN, wife and one son Joseph SLOAN. Next farm above, Mrs. Betsy COPP. Her child by first husband was William PECK, by second husband, Eliza COPP, Mary COPP, Jerusha COPP, David COPP and Lucy COPP. On the next above lived Samuel WEST, his children were Mary Ann WEST, Rebecca WEST, Jane WEST, William WEST and Allen WEST, a good industrious family. On the next farm lived William REED who married the widow of James REED, she having one son, the late William J. REED. Her children by last husband were Edwin REED and Chipman REED.

Adjoining was David AKERLY's farm, his children, David, Zillah AKERLY, Betsy AKERLY, Sally AKERLY, Eleanor AKERLY and Asael AKERLY. Asael was killed by the limb of a tree falling on him. Next, Gilbert FORSYTHE, children, Jane FORSYTHE and James FORSYTHE. The next building was the school house which the boys will remember by the birch-rod. Our first school teacher was Levi WELLS, next Thomas COCHRAN, (drunk part of the time in school), next Giles SMITH, next William SMITH (rum again).
