Notes:  Harvey Campbell Nobel was born 11 Jul 1896 in Ontario, California, when his parents were there visiting for a short time.  He was the second child of James Noble and Robena Campbell.  His siblings were Walter (1893), Lena (1897), Stuart (1901), Ralph (1905), Jack (1908), and Jean (1910).  His father was a farmer.  He is found living with his parents and siblings in 1901 and 1911 in Grey Township, Huron (East), Ontario.  This was the family farm at Cranbrook.

King George V Harvey enlisted at the age of eighteen, and participated in World War I with the Canadian Over-seas Expeditionary Force.  On his enlistment papers he is described as being 21 years 1 month old, 5 ft. 6-7/8 ins. a girth of 37 ins. with dark complexion, grey eyes, and dark brown hair.  He had large brown moles on the back of his neck, and a boil mark behind his right leg.  He was Presbyterian.  As with all military recruits, he swore his allegiance to King George V.  According to the family, he was gassed while serving in Europe.

Upon his return, Harvey moved to Manitoba where he became a farmer.  He is not found in the 1921 Canada census.  He died 22 Jul 1925 in an automobile accident at the age of 29, in the Rural Municipality of Swan River, Manitoba.  The caption under a newspaper photograph states that the accident was caused by a punctured tire, causing the motor vehicle to swerve into a ditch.  Harvey was a resident of Benito, Manitoba when he died.

Harvey is buried in the family plot in Knox Presbyterian Cemetery, Cranbrook, Ontario.
