He was a soldier of the war of 1812, and was in the battle of New Orleans; his widow still survives him, and is supposed to be one hundred years old. Harvey Stroud has always lived on a farm; in his early life he had but few advantages, and hence received only a common school education. His farm, which is one of the finest in the county, contains 170 acres and is in good condition; in addition, his brother and he owns 1,000 acres of what is called the “Island,” where their father had located.
