WHile searching through my mother's buffet I came across a 13-page typewritten document entitled "Harves Family History" which details the descendents of John Henry Harves who settled near Sunman, IN in the 1840's, married Minnie Spechtman, and had 10 children:
John, b 1849, who went to Minnesota
Henry, b 1852, who married both Anna Heisman and Rebecca Heisman Wolter
Anna, b 1854, who married Louis Kassan
Margaret, b 1856. who married Henry Benning
Lucy, b 1858, who married Fred Meyer
William Henry, b 1859, who married Christine Lentz
Emma, b 1862, who married Elisha Alphonso (Dale) Williams
Fred, b 1863, died in his teens
August, b 1864, died in childhood
Louis, b 1865, died in childhood

The document was originally prepared in 1953 by H. Mabel Kassen and recopied by Alice Benning in 1983. Family history in the document runs from ~1840 to ~1950. My connection to the Harves family is through a daughter of Margaret Harves and Henry Benning. Anyone researching any of these lines, please contact me for additional information.
