hi: sorry I am NOT related to the HARKEY family in any wayBUT had a comment to THE RELATIVES / Decendants of RUBY HARKEYthat may have lived & went to school in the Matthews, NC.area in 1900 - 1915. Not sure how old she was. MY GREAT GRANDMA: MARGARET LOUISE HARTIS thought that Ruby Harkey was Very Pretty " the prettiest girl in the County" and named MY Grandmaafter RUBY HARKEY. I thought I would Share this story with & hope her relatives would know that she must have a Pretty woman/girl. I have noticed alot of HARKEY'S in the NC CENSUS. I am sorry I do not know her Ruby Harkey's Married name. Anyways, the origin of my grandma's name is something she tells her grandchildren & hopefully someone will know this little story ABOUT their grandma or Great grandma.
