The Harvey Family Legend
Newfoundland DogIn 1828, the Harvey family, with the aid of their Newfoundland dog, "Hairyman", rescued 163 people from the sinking brig "Despatch", shipwrecked on the rocks off Isle Aux Morts. They made another daring rescue in 1838, saving 25 crew members from the Glasgow ship, the "Rankin".

Isle Aux Morts has a rich maritime heritage of fishing and sailing with many tales of shipwrecks. For this reason the French named it "Deadman's Island". It is a town noted for its heroism and discovery. One of the first families who settled in the area in the early 1800s was the George Harvey family, well known for their heroic rescues.[More]
