Bowen, 1915, Clinton County (Ohio), 967 pages: "ALFRED IRVIN McVEY: Alfred Irvin McVey, former Clinton county educator, and now cashier of the First National Bank of Blanchester, was born on September 5, 1864 in Highland County, Ohio, the son of Isaac McVey and Martha Job McVey, both natives of the same county. The paternal grandfather of Mr. McVey was Noah McVey, who was a native of Virginia and a pioneer in Highland County, Ohio. Noah McVey was a farmer most of his life, but for some time was a merchant in Leesburg, Ohio. Mr. McVey's maternal grandparents were natives of Virginia, and also early settlers in Highland County, Ohio, where they lived and died as farmers. Isaac McVey was born at Leesburg, Highland County, Ohio, and died in the same county where he had followed the occupation of a farmer practically all of his life. He never aspired to political preferment, and his only military service was as a guard at the Monroe Bridge when Morgan's army of invasion was expected in Ohio. At one time he was the owner of one hundred and seventy acres of land, and engaged in general farming. Isaac McVey and Martha Job McVey were the parents of fourteen children, four of whom are deceased. The names of these children, in the order of their birth, are as follow: Mabel Mcvey, Clara McVey, Leslie McVey, Turner McVey (deceased), Alfred McVey, Alvah McVey, Newman McVey, Minnie McVey, Eunice McVey, Burleigh McVey, Stanley McVey (deceased), Bertha McVey (deceased), Anne McVey, and Harry McVey (deceased). Alfred Irvin McVey, after receiving the rudiments of an education in the common schools of Highland county, Ohio, was graduated from the Leesburg High School in 1888. Immediately after his graduation he began teaching, although as a matter of fact, he really had begun in the teaching profession in the spring of 1887, before his graduation. He continued in educational work until 1907, in the meantime having taught in the district school of Highland County three years as instructor in the eighth grade at New Vienna, two years as the principal of the schools at Reisville, six years as superintendent of the schools at Martinsville, and two and one-half years as superintendent of the Schools in Blanchester. Upon the organization of the First National Bank of Blanchester, Mr. McVey was made cashier and assumed his duties on March 9, 1907. He has served continuously in this capacity ever since. On August 18, 1887, Alfred I. McVey was married to Anna M. Terrell McVey, of Highland county, and to this union two children were born, Bessie McVey and Jessie Mcvey. The former died at the age of seventeen years, and the latter is a teacher in the Blanchester schools. The mother of these children died on December 9, 1891, and on June 5, 1894, Mr. McVey was married, secondly, to Mintha M. Eaton McVey, daughter of Joseph and Hattie Eaton, of New Vienna, Ohio. Mr. McVey is a member of the Knights of Pythias. He served as county school examiner of Clinton county from 1901 until six months after he abandoned educational work and entered the Blanchester Bank. Mr. McVey is a member of the Friends church, and his daughter, Jessie, is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church."
Historical Note: Wiki says "Morgan's Raid was a highly publicized incursion by Confederate cavalry into the northern U.S. states of Indiana and Ohio during the American Civil War. The raid took place from June 11–July 26, 1863, and is named for the commander of the Confederate Army, Brigadier General John Hunt Morgan."
This is a beautiful family image of baby Vivian, who is so well loved. How rare it is to get such wonderful family clues so clearly handwritten and left for us on an ancestor image. It was found in Chester, Windsor County, Vermont. A great Barrett, Jones, McVey and Davis Quaker family photo. An alternative spelling is McVay in census records. Much more genealogy work could be done.

Note: Hello from ~debra. I have spent years collecting over 10,000 ID’d lost family photos & paper from US flea markets & antique shops. I do the best gen research I can, but am always open to corrections. This is an original antique item, not a reprint. A new high quality rigid sleeve is included for extra protection, especially during shipping. You may buy a piece alone, or large intimate 300 dpi scans of the front and back sent immediately via email, or both. Please search carefully, as they are often found together and many may be related. I also invite you to join me at Ancestorville Genealogy on facebook. Thank you, enjoy! ~Debra Clifford (contact info on top bar)
