Lulie E. Harvey, the first child of Harrison and Sarah (Huddleston) Harvey, was born in Missouri in 1876, likely in Cass Township, Greene County. Lulie probably moved with her parents to Ash Grove before her untimely death in May of 1889, when she was just 12 years old (Russel 2012). Lulie's parents - Harrison and Sarah - are interred in the Berry Cemetery.
Grave marker: Lulie E. Harvey's grave is marked by a tablet style marble stone. In its current state, the monument is 20 x 8 x 2 inches in size. However, the monument was originally taller, either because it was set in a base that is no longer present, or because the marker was longer but subsequently fractured; records do not clarify this issue. The text on the marker includes embossed and engraved words; “LULIE E.” is embossed and all other text is engraved. An image of a dove in flight, within a circle, is located above the text. The stone is in poor condition, due to weathering.
