HARVEY, WILLIAM (?–?). William Harvey, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, received title to a league of land on the west bank of the Brazos River in what is now northeastern Austin County on July 20, 1824. The census of 1826 classified him as a farmer and stock raiser, a single man aged between forty and fifty.
