While researching my paternal grandfather, who graduated from Yale in Forestry, I fell upon the name of his father, Francis L. Harvey. From the biographical sketches of the grads, I learned that my great-grandfather was a professor at the University of Arkansas and that my grandfather, Bartle Trott Harvey, was born in Fayetteville. My grandfather was a well-known entomologist and worked for the U.S. Forestry Service in the western states. My grandfather's family roots reach well back into English history just this side of 1266.
