OBITUARY ~ LEANDER HARDIN

Leander Hardin died at his home in north Clearfield Monday afternoon after a long illness of paralysis. He was born in Clay county, Illinois, January 16, 1848, and was 83 years, 2 months, and 17 days of age at the time of his death. When he was ten years of age, both of his parents having died, he went to live with his grandparents at New Albany, Indiana. In 1867he came to Iowa and located near Knoxville, Marion county. On February 12, 1871 he was married to Miss Amelia Ann Sutherland, in Marysville, Iowa, and went immediately to Warren county, locating near Pella. After residing there for nine years, they came to Taylor county and lived on a farm two miles south of Clearfield. Here they made their home for twenty-five years and their family grew to manhood and womanhood. They were the parents of eight children, four of whom survive. The children are Mrs. Fannie Abrahams of Ellendale, North Dakota; Sam Hardin of Aberdeen, South Dakota; Rev. Wesley Hardin of Guelph, North Dakota; and Grover Hardin of Des Moines. A nephew of Mrs. Hardin, Reece Sutherland of Cromwell, has made his home with Mr. and Mrs. Hardin since babyhood.

They moved from the farm south of town to a farm in Ringgold county and later moved to town where they resided for a good many years. Mr. Hardin was a member of the Methodist church and has lived an exemplary life, known and respected by all. Funeral services were held in the home Wednesday afternoon at 2:30, with Rev. D. I. Hower officiating. Interment was made in Clearfield cemetery.
