William H. Harvey, 65, died at his home, 56 Spruce street, yesterday morning after a week's illness with heart trouble. He had been a resident of that section of the city for the last 25 years and was well-known by the entire community. He had worked for the last 15 years at the Watershops department of the armory and for 10 years before that for Smith & Wesson.

Mr. Harvey was born in St. Johnsbury, Vt. , the son of Orange and Martha Harvey. He attended the schools there in his younger days, but early went to work in the Fairbanks scale shops as a sign and ornamental painter. Later he worked as a carriage painter and was a recognized expert in his line. Soon after the civil war broke out he enlisted at Northampton in Co. E of the 1st Massachusetts regiment of volunteer heavy artillery which was a reorganization of the 14th infantry. Mr. Harvey was wounded three Times, at the battle of Spottsylvania, one of the injuries leaving his left hand practically useless. He spent many days in the hospital at Mt. Pleasant, Washington, before he was recovered sufficiently to return to duty. During the spring of 1865 he served as sergeant in the veteran reserve corps at Washington. Mr. Harvey married Miss Elsie M. Knapp at Danville, Vt. , July 5, 1870. He is survived by his widow, one daughter, Mrs. F. H. Burt of New York City, and one sister, Mrs. Mary Hanno of Beverly. He was a member of Chamberlin Grand Army Post of Vermont, and rose to be junior vice-commander. He was a member of Roswell Lee lodge of Masons of this city.
