| This is the house where Thomas
Harvey Wimberly (my great-grandfather) lived near Divide, IL, in fact,
that's Thomas Harvey standing on the front porch. Thomas Harvey
was the grandson of Elijah Wimberly. Thomas was a successful farmer
and served as the tax collector for Field Township for many years. He also
provided dairy products for the area residents.
(Thomas Harvey's son and my grandfather) was the Executor of Thomas Harvey's
estate when Thomas Harvey died in 1919.
The house no longer is standing.
It was torn down in the 1970's by a family that purchased the old home
place and moved a mobile home onto this location. This is near the Panther
Fork Baptist Church in Field Township, IL
