Three brothers, Abner, George, and Finis Harvey are immortalized in the geographic location of Harvey's Ridge
Click on headline for complete essay
By Billy Joe Fudge
This present view looking North East from the Rudolph Bragg farm currently owned by his son, Gary Bragg is one that ties us to the past and the history of the Harvey's Ridge name.
The field seen across Highway 768 (Harvey's Ridge Road) is referred to as the Abner Harvey Sinkhole Field and is one of the most fertile Ridge Land fields in the County.
Mr. Abner Harvey's farm joined his brother, Mr. George Harvey's farm just over the hill, across the headwaters of Petitt's Fork Creek and along the low ridge rim bordering the Flatwoods.
Then, further North East and right smack in the Southern edge of the Flatwoods Mr. George Harvey's farm joined another brother, Mr. Finis Harvey's farm. I don't know anything about other siblings but these three brothers will forever be immortalized in the geographic location of Harvey's Ridge.
