Harvey, b. 1825, might be a grandson of Reuben Prentis who, with his wife, Sarah, were living in Grafton, Windham Co., NY from 1793 to 1797. Reuben had 3 sons born between 1790 and 1800 and Grafton lies perhaps 10 miles east of Windham.

Harvey is shown in the 1850 Windham census living with Julia M. Prentiss. Since he did not marry Adeline until 1852, Julia may be Harvey's sister.
