      REV. H. H. HERVEY, pastor of the United Presbyterian Church, at Hartstown, was born in County Down, Ireland, October 10, 1826, and is a son of James and Mary (Ford) Hervey.  His father came to this State in 1846, settling in Tarentum, Allegheny County, where he remained till his death.  He had a family of seven sons and one daughter, four now living:  Robert, deceased; William, deceased; John; Mary, deceased; James; H. H.; Ford, deceased, and David.  John married Agnes Shaw; James married Miss McMath, and David is a widower.  Our subject was married October 11, 1853, to Jane M., daughter of Charles Porter, of Huntingdon County, Penn., who was the third child in a family of six children.  The result of this union was nine children, of whom two survive:  Mary, wife of Dr. Walker of Linesville, and Jennie, at home, who is a cultured young lady with a natural aptitude for art.  The deceased are:  Charles P., Frederick W., Annie (twin with Jennie), Emma and Helen.  Mr. Hervey received his early education in Ireland, and in 1846 entered the Western University at Pittsburgh, whence he graduated in 1848.  He afterward entered the Associate Reformed Theological Seminary, graduating thence in 1852, and after having traveled a year in the interest of the church came to Crawford County, and here settled.  Soon after he married.  He was ordained by the Presbytery of the Lakes, of Associate Reformed [page 1140] Church, and has since remained as pastor of the same charge—at first of three churches, and now by the union of two of these, over two churches.  Mr. Hervey is a man of ability, and well respected in the community.
