I am a descendant of George Harvell and Sarah Alice Allman, his first wife.My great grandmother, Pauline Sevella Harvell Smith, was their daughter.My grandfather was George Thomas Smith, son of Pauline Sevella Harvell and Horace R Smith.
This is what I have for George H Harvell.He was born in 1872 in Jefferson County, Alabama.He died on 19 September 1928? in Jefferson County, AL.His burial is listed for September 1928 in Vance, Jefferson County, AL.His mother is listed as Martha Crowder.His father is listed as Isom/Isham Harvell.
Isom/Isham is listed as Joham Harvell as head of household in the 1880 Tuscaloosa County, AL Census, with George Harvell, listed as being his son.
I have Isom as being born in 1844 in NC, with both parents being born in NC.
I know that George was married twice, first to Sarah Alice Allman, and had four children, second to Mary Kathryn Dailey, and had four children.He had eight children between the two wives.Sarah Allman is said to have died from complications of a miscarriage.
George had brother, Soloman, and sister, Mary Alice.
