Harding ThruLines

Are you a fan of Ancestry’s ThruLines or a naysayer? Since I believe ThruLines can be a valuable tool, I’m willing to research descendants of my ancestors and to make corrections in my tree when my additional research identifies issues.

As I’m currently researching the descendants of William G. Harding (1803-1865), I’m struggling with his son Abel Harding (1833-1906) and his descendants. At this point, I have identified the children of Abel Harding and Cynthia Gertrude Edwards as follows:

  • Edna Harding (1866-1930) – md William C. Allen
  • Lettie Mae Harding (1867-1934) – md Edwin B. Hawley
  • Clara Jean Harding (1872-1943) – md Frank Merril in 1890 in Pipestone, MN
  • Nina Belle Harding (1876-1964) – md Albert Halverson in 1894 in Yellow Medicine, MN
  • Grace Elizabeth Harding (1880-1906) – md Edward Quenell in 1901 in Rulo, NE
  • Lola Harding (1883-1971) – md John Beauchemin in Rulo, NE
  • James Earl Harding (1885-1947) – md Anna Ewald in Anacortes, WA
  • Martha Gertrude Harding (1888-1931) – md Leslie H Corbett

Hoping that I have this family correct, I decided to check my ThruLines for William G. Harding that go thru Abel to see if I have DNA data to support the family. Since my brothers also tested, I have three sets of ThruLines.

My ThruLines
DC ThruLines
LivingT ThruLines

At first glance, I have matches thru the 7 daughters. As an additional test, I analyzed each of these matches and compared the shared CMs for the matches with the expected results from the Shared CM project.

Looking at this data, it may support the following daughters: Edna, Lettie Mae and Martha G. Because quite a few of these matches share a very low number of cM, I can’t use this data as ‘PROOF’ that I have the family correct.

Even though this doesn’t ‘prove’ the family, it also doesn’t disprove any of the family. Thus, I need to do more digging to try and locate additional information for this family.

Baby Pics


Calling all Genea-Musings Fans:It’s Saturday Night again –Time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music):
1)  Do you have baby or small child photographs of yourself or your parents?  Please share one of them.


Merged Abels

Do you ever feel like you’ve made a mistake in your genealogy research that seems almost impossible to undo? That’s how I feel right now with my research of Harding descendants.

I recently wrote about my confusing to Abel Hardings who are actually first cousins in my Multiple Abels post. As I’ve been researching the descendants of William Gillies Harding, I’ve discovered that there is a third Abel Harding. At this time, I only have an 1870 census record to identify this third Abel.

  • Abel Harding, age 36, living in Racine, Racine County, Wisconsin in 1870 – son of Abel Guilford Harding and Ann Nase
  • Abel Harding, age 36, living in Fremont, Fayette County, Iowa in 1870 – son of William Gillies Harding and Elizabeth Fowler; Also listed in the census was a wife, Centhy, and two children Edna, age 3 and May, age 2
  • Abel Harding, age 29, living in Bremer County, Iowa with a wife named Cynthia and two children Ida, age 4 and Ella, age 2
1870 Racine County, Wisconsin
1870 Census Fayette County, Iowa
1870 Census Bremer County, Iowa

Even though there is an age difference, the two Abel Hardings on the 1870 census in Iowa appear to have been merged on FamilySearch. FamilySearch shows Cynthia Harding as Cynthia Gertrude Edwards, born in 1848 in New York. This matches the information for Cynthy Hading in the Fremont County census. When it comes to the children, it appears they have been merged. Edna and Ida becomes Edna Ada Harding while May and Ella becomes Ella Mary Harding.

In 1880, the census for what is likely the 2nd Abel Harding shows the following family living in Mitchell County, Iowa.

  • Abel Harding, age 48, born New Brunswick
  • Cynthia Harding, age 33, born New York
  • Ada Harding, age 14, born Iowa
  • Mary Harding, age 13, born Iowa
  • Clara Harding, age 8, born Michigan
  • Lina Harding, age 3, born Iowa
1880 Census Mitchell County, Iowa

This 1880 census record caused me to assign the name, May Mary Harding to the second child. Whether I copied that from someone else or whether they copied that from me, it appears on 58 Ancestry trees.

Many of these trees also include the name ‘Lettie’. By using the name, Lettie Harding, I was able to find additional records to piece together her family.

After doing some digging on FamilySearch, I was able to locate what is likely this same family.

So far, I haven’t found additional information on the third Abel Harding.

However, I have been able to document Lettie Mae Harding Hawley’s family. (Endnote numbers at end of each fact.) Much more research will be required to make sure that I’m not making mistakes again.

RM8 Source Templates

When it comes to recording sources for our genealogy research, we all likely have our own unique methods. I know that some people use Free Form citations while others may copy/paste a citation from Ancestry or other sites. For me, I use templates to prompt me for the various pieces of information and to insert the correct punctuation.

RootsMagic 7 and 8 has templates built in that make this process easy.

When I first started using RootsMagic, I used these built-in templates. However, I soon discovered that one cannot modify a built-in template. Thus, I started making a copy of a built-in template so that I could control the template. To do this, I highlight the desired template and click the COPY button. This opens the ‘Copy this template’ window

Answerinig ‘YES’ to the question adds the copy to the list of templates.

Highlighting the copied template and clicking on the EDIT button opens the template allowing me to change the name of the source type and to modify the template when desired.

The SOURCE TEMPLATE window in RM 8 is very similar to that from RM7. Any field with an X in the D column is considered a SOURCE DETAIL FIELD. At the bottom of the SOURCE TEMPLATE FIELD window is a check box by the statement ‘This field is a source detail field.’ If this box is checked then the X is placed in the D column. The fields with an X in the D column form the CITATION in RM8.

Once I make any changes to the fields, I then change the name of the source type. I have elected to name the templates I’ve created with a name beginning with _EE_. Thus, I place _EE_ ahead of the name and then remove the word (Copy) from the end of the name.

By naming my templates in this manner, they appear at the top of the list of templates.

One of the templates I had previously modified was the ‘Census, U.S. Federal (Online images)’ template

By having my own template, I was able to add two fields [Image] and [ImageTotal]. I also modified the Footnote Template to include those two pieces of information.

Thus, when I encounter a source that I haven’t already used, such as the 1870 census for Jennings County, Indiana, I can click on the ADD NEW SOURCE button in the upper left of the Select Source window.

Then I locate my template for federal census records from the list.

This opens the Add New Source window where I can enter the information for the source.

I then fill in the information from the source.

When finished adding the source info, I click on next. This opens the ADD CITATION portion of the window. The information in the CITATION DETAILS section of this window are those fields marked as DETAIL FIELDS in my template.

I then add the information from the source.

As I add the citation information, the footnote is updated.

NOTE: For now, I am letting the program generate the ‘CITATION NAME’. I haven’t figured out a naming process that would work on a wide variety of citations and am satisfied that I can find a citation from a list of citations for a source.

Once the citation is saved, I then go back into the source citation to add the Research Note and attach a media file.

When working with Ancestry, I usually use Ctrl-C to copy the information from the Ancestry record and then use CTRL-Shift-V to paste that information into the Research note Field.

Remembering to Click the Check mark in the upper right corner, the note is saved and attached to the citation.

My templates aren’t perfect, but they help me get the details recorded and structure the citations without having to remember every detail.

Are you a fan of the hints the various genealogy sites provide linking someone in your tree to a record? I have to admit that I am a fan of those hints, particularly the Ancestry leaf hints. Some would say that I’m a lazy researcher when I’m doing descendancy research since I often don’t dig any further than those hints.

And then I run across Maude Mabel Harding with hints for three different surnames. At first, I dismiss those hints since FamilySearch does not show Maude (KCW7-CK2) with only one husband, Clayton Cook, whom she married in 1892 in Bremer County, Iowa. But those hints keep ‘poking’ at me, wanting me to pay attention. Thus, I decide to look at the three suggested trees. And I find the Sears Family Tree with the three husbands and SOURCES.

One of those sources is a 1930 Iowa marriage record where Maud Mabel (Harding) Dean lists her parents as Thomas Harding and Mary Briner – the same parents that I have for Maud Mabel Harding. According to the record, Maude Mabel Dean married Conrad C. Funk on 6 Aug 1930.

With this 1930 record and the 1892 record from Bremer County, Iowa, I now have identified two potential husbands for Maude Mabel Harding: Clayton Earnest Cook and Conrad C. Funk.

But in the 1930 marriage record, her surname was Dean. Thus, I need to look for a marriage sometime between her marriage to Clayton Cook in 1892 and her marriage to Conrad Funk in 1930. The Ancestry tree that led me to the marriage record identifies the second husband as Harvey W. Dean. It also indicates that Maude and Harvey Dean had a son born in 1908. This would place their marriage sometime between 1903 and 1908.

I decided to search Iowa newspapers to see what I could learn about Harvey Dean and his wife, Maude Harding Cook. I found an article in The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa) indicating that Harvey Dean and Mrs. Cook eloped.

Waverly Has an Elopement Sensation
Harvey Dean and Mrs. Clayton Cook Left Town Together
Waverly, Iowa, Oct. 13 — One of the greatest sensations which has occurred in Waverly for several years has just come to light in the discovery that one woman’s husband and another man’s wife, who left Waverly on the same day for different destinations, really went together and are now supposed to be living in St. Paul as husband and wife. The man in the case is Harvey W. Dean, a carpenter by trade, and one of Waverly’s best known citizens. He is the only son of the late G. R. Dean, once county superintendent of Bremer county and for many years mayor of Waverly. The woman with whom Dean is said to have eloped is Mrs. Clayton Cook, who for the past few years has resided in the third ward. Mrs. Cook took with her her three small children.
Harven Dean has led a rather unusual life. His wife secured a divorce from him and soon after married him again. They have four small children, one of which was born before the divorce and three since they were remarried. about two years ago, Dean, who is a splendid specimen of physical manhood, and conceded to be the strongest man in Bremer county, discovered that he posessed rare hypnotic powers. For several monthes he successfully toured the country giving demonstrations in coutry school houses. It is now believed that this hypnotic power has played an important part in the elopement. Parties in position to know state that for some months past Mrs. Cook has acted as one under a hypnotic spell. A particularly atrocious feature of the elopement is the fact that at the time of leaving home, his little children were under quarantine, being afflicted with scarlet fever.

“Waverly Has an Elopement Sensation,” The Gazette (Cedar Rapids, Iowa), 13 October 1905, page 1; digital images, Newspaepers.com (www.newspapers.com : viewed online 6 October 2021).

Several other Iowa newspapers had a version of this same story. Then a year and a half later, the Waterloo Iowa Courier contains a notice of the marriage of Harvey Dean and Maude Cook.

The City in Brief
A license to wed as issued today to Harvey W. Dean, 33 and Maude M. Cook, 30, both of Waterloo.

“The City in Brief,” The Courier (Waterloo, Iowa), 8 February 1907, page 8; digital image, Newspapers.com (www.newspapers.com : viewed online 6 October 2021).

A search of the Ancestry database, Iowa Marriage Records, 1880-1951, found a marriage record for Harvey Dean and Maude Cook.

Name: Maude M Cook
[Maude M Hardy]
Gender: Female
Race: American
Age: 31
Birth Date: abt 1876
Birth Place: Bremer Co. IA
Marriage Date: 8 Feb 1907
Marriage Place: Black Hawk, Iowa, USA
Father: Hardy
Mother: Mary Brown
Spouse: Harvey W Dean

These newspaper articles and marriage records support the tree with multiple husbands for Maude Mabel Harding. Now, I need to go back and pay attention to those hints that I ignored. This experience is teaching me to dig a little deeper when the hints keep pushing me in a different direction.

Multiple Abels

Have you ever looked at some of the facts that you have entered for a person and questioned whether you had mixed up two people of the same name? That was my situation when I was researching descendants of William Gillies Harding, including his son, Abel Harding.

I had accepted an Ancestry hint indicating that this Abel Harding had served for the state of Wisconsin during the civil war. Knowing that there were other Hardings, including an Abel Harding, living in Wisconsin, I decided to do some research on those Harding.

The elder Abel Harding in Wisconsin is a brother to William Gillies Harding. Thus, their sons, both named Abel, are first cousins.

I was able to locate an obituary for Abel G. Harding of Racine, Wisconsin. This obituary not only proves that it was the Wisconsin cousin who served during the civil war, but will help me with future research of these two men and their families.

Abel G. Harding Called by Death
Well Known Old Time Lake Captain and Veteran of Civil War Passes Away Early Today
Capt. Abel G. Harding, aged 86, soldier of the Civil war, prominent retired lake captain, pioneer citizen and former member of the local police department, died about 9 o’clock this morning at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Clara Steffens, 1522 Phillips avenue.
He was born in New Brunswick and came to Racine when a lad 16 years of age and lived here to the time of his death. When a young man he was a sailor on the Great Lakes and because of his ability rapidly rose to the position of second mate, then first mate and captain and for many years commanded some of the largest sailing vessels plying between Lake Michigan ports and Buffalo, and other eastern ports of entry. He was considered a very careful navigator.
When the civil war broke out he enlisted in Company K. forty-ninth Wisconsin infantry, going in as a private and coming out as corporal. He was a brave and courageous soldier and took part in most of the battles of his regiment.
Capt. Harding was a member of the local police force for some years, and he was also superintendent of construction of sewers and other public work in Racine and other cities for the E. R. Harding company.
In the death of Capt. Harding another pioneer passes to the majority. He was a progressive citizen, honest and upright and always ready to assist in anything that was fair and honorable.
He is survived by three children — Edward R. Harding and Mrs. Clara Steffens, of this with, and William Harding, of Chicago, also six grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Do you use the hinting system found on some of the genealogy websites? Or, are you one that only searches for specific information?

When I first started researching my family history, my process was centered around locating specific information. In reality, this research involved locating specific types of records and then using those records to search for my famiily.

Today, I am spoiled. Even though I will search for a particular set of records or county histories, I spend most of my research time following those hints. Since I primarily use Ancestry, those leaf hints often take me to obvious sources such as census records, Find a Grave memorials or vital records. Sometimes, they lead me to a record that I wouldn’t have thought to research.

That is the case with a hint for my great grandmother, Josie Winifred Hammond Crawford. I had already done quite a bit of research on Josie. Thus, when I saw a new hint, I thought it would be to another Ancestry member tree. Instead, I was surprised to find the hint leading to an obituary.

Since I live in Kansas, I have access to a wonderful newspaper collection at the Kansas State Historical Society. Thus, I had already found my great grandmother’s obituary in the Dodge City Daily Globe. This find was in my early days of research, when I transcribed portions of the obituary and took notes on the other parts.

Even though many of the Dodge City newspapers have been digitized, the 1954 issues have yet to be digitized. Thus, I was surprised to find that the Ancestry hint led to a copy of Josie’s obituary. This obituary was published in The Wichita Eagle (Wichita, Kansas) on 28 Sep 1954.

Pioneer of Kansas Dies at Dodge City

(Special to the Eagle)

Dodge City, Kan. Sept. 27 – Mrs. Josie W. Crawford, 79, widely known resident for many years here, died Monday morning in Trinity hosptial where she had been a patient briefly for treatment. She had been active until her final illness.

Born Feb. 9, 1875 in Know County, Ill., she came with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Richmond F. Hammond to Pratt County. Two years later the family moved to a farm in Ford County southwest of Dodge City and later moved to Dodge city.

Miss Hammond was married to Judson F. Crawford Dec. 24, 1890. Mr. and Mrs. Crawford celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1940. Mr. Crawford died in February , 1949.

Mrs. Crawford had been active in Methodist work since girlhood and received her 50 year pin several years ago. Among her many public services Mrs. Crawford helped organize and was an active member of the East Side Bible Class organized in 1917 and still active.

Final rites are slated for w p.m. Wednesday in the First Methodist Church here with the Rev. Alvin W. Murray officiating. Burial will be in Maple Grove Cemetery here.

“Pioneer of Kansas Dies at Dodge City,” The Wichita Eagle (Wichita, Kansas), 28 September 1954, page 11; digital image, Newspapers.com (www.newspapers.com : viewed online 5 September 2021).

Without the Ancestry hinting system, I doubt I would have found this particular obituary for my great grandmother. Thus, I will continue to work thru these hints.

Genealogy Fun

It’s Saturday Night again –Time for some more Genealogy Fun!!

Here is your assignment if you choose to play along (cue the Mission Impossible music):
1)  What was your best “genealogy find” this week (or this month, or this year)?  Was it a new ancestor, a new record, a new conclusion drawn, a new photograph, or something else?

Who would think that this week’s question would be so difficult. However, when one’s blog posts tend to share these finds on a regular basis, this becomes more difficult. Below are four of my recent posts that could easily have been written in response to this week’s question:

So instead of writing about a ‘genealogy find’, I’m going to write about a family time.

Each October, my brothers, their families and I spend a weekend at Lake Milford. Our weekend is filled with great food, walks and time around the fire. Thanks to the extra warm weather and a new swimming pool that was still open at Acorns Resorts, swimming, or dipping toes in the pool was added to our list of activities this year.

However, our most memorable activity was probably playing twenty questions around the fire and being stumped by a 4 year old and a 10 year old. The topic for the evening was ‘animals’. One would think that the younger crowd would stick to popular animals such as lions, tigers and bears. However thanks to the program, Wild Kratts, which they must religiously watch, a wide range of animals were selected to see if we adults could figure them out. Terms like carnivore, herbivore and omnivore didn’t cause these youngsters to pause and ask for definitions. Fortunately, one of the moms was participating. When the rest of us were stumped as to what to ask next, she usually was able to ask a question and identify the animal.

While reservations have been made for next year, we adults have also been assigned the task of watching Wild Kratts or improving our knowledge of the animal world.
