Responded to the Draft

The death of Stewart Harvey at the Danville town farm, noticed last week, removes a somewhat noted character from this county. Harvey was a lawyer and a democrat, and rather worse than the ordinary run. During the Rebellion he was drafted. He failed to respond, was arrested and imprisoned at Windsor for some time. After the war he went to the courts with his grievances but never got either satisfaction or redress. He was a man of unlimited cheek but that did not furnish him provender, and as he was averse to labor he finally brought up in the poor house where he died. He was a man of fair attainments and good presence, and his haughty bearing, portly figure and blue, swallow-tail coat and brass buttons will be remembered by many who used to frequent the court house twenty-odd years ago.
