The Harvey connection, for Ellen Brown, goes back to her great, great grandfather, Nathaniel Burwell Harvey, and his wife Elrica Rorer, who lived in a large estate called Grove Hill…near the present day Carilion Hospital. They had eleven children, and Ellen is descended through Julia Harvey, the 3rd child, and her husband Andrew Lewis Ingles. The photographs at left include a portrait of Katharine Ingles, a snap shot of her with her siblings, and a portrait of the three children born to Kitty and William Palmer Hill – Elizabeth, Billy and Katharine (Ellen’s mother). After collecting information about the Harvey clan for several years, Ellen is happy to share some of it here…
