There is a tradition in our family that a blacksmith by the name of Daniel Howard killed a man over a woman in Harvel, fled to the west and was never apprehended. The incident would have occured between 1870 and 1880. The Harvel in this case was probably the town in Christian County, but could have occurred in Harvel Township in Montgomery County. Has anyone else ever heard this story?
