  • Notes 
    • !SOURCE: "Descendants of Henry Rice Jerauld," email from Norma Roberts (undisclosed at example dot netm) to Weldon Whipple, 12 Sep 2009. Cites/notes the following:
      • I believe Harvey to be a corruption of the French name Hervey (pronounced her-va, long a) but where in his ancestry it came from is still a mystery.
      • Harvey was only 11 years old when his father died. His mother remarried and perhaps there wasn't much interaction with his father's side of the family.
      • He came to Galesburg, Knox County, Illinois, in the (according to Annals of Knox County-Commemorating Centenial of Admission of Illinois as a State of the Union in 1818 by Ruth B. Ragsdale) Spring of 1837. It also states that some of the men who came singly came by water (Erie Canal, Lake Erie, the Ohio canal, the Ohio River, and the Mississippi and Illinois rivers) as far as Chicago, which was then a village of a few hundred inhabitants, and then by horseback the remainder of the way. Families came by wagons cover in canvas to protect them from the weather, drawn by strong horses. Judging from the record of the names of the towns and villages touched along the route, their line of travel was much the same as that followed by the Michigan Central Railroad today.
      • Since he came from Herkimer Co., New York he may have traveled with some of the Ferris brothers. Henry Ferris had already settled in Galesburgh Colony before 1836 and then his brother followed. Henry spent the winter of 1835-36 in a log cabin in Henderson Grove of the Galesburg Colony. Henry Ferris married Elizabeth Hudson who was a sister to Harvey Jerauld's wife Maria L Hudson.
      • Harvey was a native of New York (according to the 1871 Atlas) and was a farmer living in Section 27 of Galesburg Township.
      • 1840 census shows Harvey Jerauld living at Galesburg, Knox Co., Illinois.
