Pauls Valley, Whitebead Lose A Pioneer
Harvey Deen Williams May 17, 1891 - April 5, 1989 By Joe Claxton,  Managing Editor
They arrived in Pauls Valley, Indian Territory by train from Orrick, Missouri, 1902. Two older brothers were already here, Arthur and John. Harvey WILLIAMS arrived with his parents and the rest of the family of 12 children. He was 11. He could not have known he would spend almost a century on Earth, 86 years of it in The Valley.
Saturday funeral services ended part of an era as one of Pauls Valley and Whitebead's oldest pioneers was laid to rest. Harvey WILLIAMS was 97.
All their possessions were in a boxcar. Furniture, livestock, a couple of dogs, including Harvey's Bowser. A pair of ice-skates Harv would amaze local kids with when a pond froze over. Legend has it that young Harvey made an immediate splash in Pauls Valley by winning a race down main street with a local who though he had a fast horse.
John was farming in the area. He had a home already built in town and waiting for the family. One possession was not in the boxcar. Leery of the stories of wild Indians and train robbers, his mother had wrapped $1,000 around her leg under her stocking.
WILLIAMS and Mary Susan KIMBERLIN married in 1914. They would have a long life together. She was 84 when she died in 1981. They raised a family, spending most of their years in the blond brick house Harvey built on Kimberlin Road in the Whitebead area. Daughter Mary Deen MANNING and husband Harold still live in the house. Daughter Kathleen SMYERS and husband Joe are just down the road. With over 36 years of postal service, WILLIAMS retired Sept. 30, 1960.  He started to work in the post office in 1923 as a temporary carrier. He served as a substitute for four years. After a year as a clerk he traded that job for the rural carrier job on Route 1.
He was a farmer, a rancher, a horseman, a community leader who spent much time on civic affairs from the Whitebead Cemetery to the Whitebead Methodist Church. Some say that you will never get old unless you stop dancin'. Harvey must have believed that. Once or twice a week he attended local dances until well into his nineties.
A Note from Susie, April 16, 1998 Harvey Deen was my grandfather. The blond brick house he built in 1935 for $12,000 still stands. My mother, dad, my husband, son and I live in the house now. I grew up in this house, and after living within a mile from this home for about 20 years, I am returning. My aunt Kathleen died recently. She was preceded in death by her husband some years ago. It is strange that I married a man named Williams. I did check first though where his family originated.  I have strong roots in the Whitebead area, as did my grandfather. My great granddad Kimberlin was also an early settler in the area. We continue our family's long-time interest in the Whitebead Cemetery and Whitebead Methodist Church.
