Harvey Tupper - May 30, 1883
Debbie Mills shared this information

The recent death of Harvey Tupper, {Uncle Harv, as he was familarly called} is deserving of more than a passing notice and, would have been mentioned last week, but for want of certain information since obtained. Deceased was one of the few remaining genuine old settlers of Sheboygan County, and his departure is another warning to his remaining comrades of the early days in the wilderness. He was born at Pittsford, Rutland Co, Vermont, Nov. 13, 1880, and lacked but a few months of 83 years of active effort, struggle and hope. In 1812, a memorable year in American history he removed with his father's family to St. Lawrence Co., NY, remaining there until 1834 when another removal was made to Summit Co., Ohio. He came into this county with his family in 1846 and located 240 acres of land, 40 in Sec. 6, town of Lima, and 200 acres in section 1, town of Lyndon, and established a home in the latter town, where he resided for several years, doing pioneer work and teaching his children to labor. As age and hard hard work began to tell upon him and the mother of his children, he made a verbal agreement with his son Oramel, {then married}, to maintain the old people during their natural lives and thereupon conveyed to Oramel the 160 acre tract in sec. 1. {Oramel went into the Union army during the rebellion, and died of sickness contracted in the line of duty}. For some reason the old couple moved with another son, Newton, {who had a home on the 40 acres} about 1858 or perhaps earlier, and did not return to Oramel's, but removed with Newton, to Cascade in Glenboulah, and when Newton removed to Missouri {about 7 years ago} taking his mother with him, "Uncle Harvey" took up his abode with another son, Marcus, at the Glen. Marcus died about 3 years ago, and since that time Marcus' widow has cared for the aged pioneer with a devotion and heroism worthy of all praise. The wife of "Uncle Harvey" had preceeded him about 7 years, having surrendered to the grim reaper soon after reaching Missouri. It may truly be said of deceased, that he lived an honorable life, and although he had chopped and logged and burned, with a view to laying up a competency, he died leaving nothing but a good name, and his funeral expenses were borne by his surviving bother, Ebenezer of Lima.
