Abstract:
John Harvey, a native of Perquimans County, NC, served as a representative from Perquimans County, a Justice in 1751, and as Speaker of the Assembly. Harvey was considered the ‘Father of the American Revolution in North Carolina.’ He was a member of the first NC Committee of Correspondence and called the first and second Provincial Congresses against the will of the Royal Governor. In 1758, he helped charter the town of Hertford, NC. He was buried at his Belgrade Farm in Perquimans County, NC, but his tomb eventually washed away into the Albemarle Sound.
