  • Notes 


    • listed as ALTON or ALDEN in various sources

      Alton Sankie Hervey and family. Alton was born at Concordia, KS. Nov 24, 1885, the seventh child of Henry Harrison Hervey and Lucia Stoner Hervey. After the death of Lucia Stoner Hervey, Alton Sankie and his sister Zula Zon Hervey were adopted by Peter and Mary Harsh and Alton apparently kept the last name "Harsh" all his life. He married Frances Ruchty February 14, 1908 in Lewis, Washington. Francis apparently was also adopted by a Harsh family and her name is listed as Ruchty-Harsh on her marriage certificate. However, it is not certain if it was the same Harsh family. Their daughter was Viola May Harsh and their son was Hubert Hervey Harsh.
