The boy’s mother died in 1885 and he and his father lived together until the latter’s death three years ago. Since that time the boy had made his home with his uncle, Mr. VanKirk.
Harvey was a member of the Marlboro public school and would have graduated next year. He leaves two brothers. The funeral was held at the house last Wednesday, Rev. A. L. Martine officiating. The body was buried at Cranbury. The pall bearers were Harvey’s schoolmates, Benjamin and James Ely and George and Charles Buck.
