John Shreeve was an English sailor. He and Happy Harvey fell in love, but this love was dashed by Miss Harvey's father, Lord Harvey. They eloped and immigrated to Canada. It was said that the Shreeve's were adept walkers which is how they probably ended up in Illinois.

According to O.U. Burright in the "Sun Rides High" Shreeves made three trips across the Atlantic... and Happy evidently made ammends with her father. Sarah told OU that she rode when she was 13, "to the hounds" with her grandfather in Scotland and told how the horses jumped over the fences and didn't stop for anything running after the foxes.

OU also said his grandmother's name was Happoch but records say otherwise. Also the book says that Hepzibath "Happy" was the daughter of Lord Harvey of Scotland.

In spite of certain discrepancies, I am certain this is the Shreeve/Harvey line.
