Additions and Corrections

The article, "The Isaac Harvey Family," which appeared in the June issue (pages 24–45), has induced Mrs. C. C. Atkinson of Chicago (2611 E. 73 St.) to send in additional data. Thomas Atkinson (b. Sept, 18, 1741), son of Henry and Ann Atkinson, married (1) Ruth Cruze (about 1764 or 1765). Ruth was a daughter of John and Ann Cruze (Cane Creek Monthly Meeting, Orange [now Alamance] County, N. C.) Children: John (b. Nov. 25, 1766); Thomas (b. Aug. 30, 1769); Mary (b. Apr. 5, 1771); Ann (b. Feb. 28, 1773); Robert (b. Feb. 27, 1775). Ruth (Cruze) Atkinson died between 1775 and 1780, and Thomas Atkinson married (2) Ruth Harvey on Sept. 5, 1781. Ruth was the daughter of Isaac and Martha (Newlin) Harvey formerly of Chester County, Penn. Thomas Atkinson and Ruth Harvey were married at Spring Monthly Meeting, Orange [now Alamance] Co., N.C. The witnesses to this marriage (names copied personally from the records filed at Guilford College, N.C.) were: Wm. Lindley, John Carter, Zacharias Dicks, John Newlin, Joseph Cloud, Wm. Harvey, Wm. Holoday, Caleb Harvey, Hannah Carter, Ruth Dicks, Martha Newlin and Mary Harvey. Children of Thomas and Ruth (Harvey) Atkinson: William A. (b. Jul, 18, 1782); Elizabeth (b. Sept. 29, 1784).

The Editor of the Genealogical Section furnishes the following corrections of errors found in the second paragraph, page 243, of the June issue: Isaac Harvey died on April 3, 1802 (not 1792). Martha (Newlin) Harvey died on Nov. 23, 1806 (not 1906).
