    Notes 
    • Excerpts from daughter, Ethel (Hand) Armstrong's Story "A Family Named Hand"
      ..."The second born was a sturdy brown haired boy and they named him Harvey E. Newton. The Harvey was for father's middle name and the Newton was for Father's half-brother but no one seemed to know just why the initial E. came to be there. Of course, he was father's pride and joy because he was a son to carry the Hand name he was always a spoiled one and always had his way and got almost anything that he wanted." ...

      ..."In the fall, Sylvia and Harvey were enrolled in the tiny one room school near Burden Lake. It must have been quite a task for them to get to school in the winter. It was a mile and a half and the road was not traveled often and there often was not even a track through the deep snow. Once when Harvey had stayed home and Sylvia was walking home alone, a lynx followed her all the way slinking along behind her, stopping when she stopped and going on when she did but always here. She stopped and broke off a red willow switch and walked on home bravely carrying it. Mother and father were quite shook up when she told them about the big dark cat that followed her all the way home. Father went gunning for it and found the tracks but the animal had disappeared." ...

      ...
      Harvey had been going with a girl he had met shortly after he returned from service. We thought that it might be serious. Harvey brought the other lot next to ours and built a very sturdy little house on it but the romance died out. (Marcia's note: Sturgis, St. Joseph Co., MI) ...
