We didn't know he existed (other than a brief mention of "twin daughters" in an obit 1944, found a month or so ago) until his mother's obit in 1974. What we know is that he was named for her first of three husbands.George W. Harding was the son of Lewis Albert Harding, born 1880 in Indiana.Lewis married Inez Daugherty in 1919 in Spokane, WA. He was an educator and alternately, he was a lawyer in private practice, whatever seemed to suit him at the moment. Lewis and Inez were found in the 1920-1922 Spokane City Directories, then they disappeared. The 1944 obit for his father Lewis stated Lewis went to Louisiana until about 1928 when he returned to Indianapolis. In 1928, George's mother reappeared in the Spokane City Directory and in 1929 or so, she married Raymond Mackey.She died as Inez Moore, Mrs. James Parker Moore, of Opportunity, WA.
So George's birth could be between 1920 and 1922 in Spokane or anytime between 1922 and 1928 in Lousiana, the latter only if the couple went to LA together.She could have returned to her parents home in ID those years.On the 1930 census, she and Raymond Mackey live together but the child is not with them.
I've searched USA Social Security records but nothing really fits the George W. Harding scenario.However, he may still be alive.
One clue that might make sense of the twin daughters' story is there is a grandson in Inez's obit that has a surname different from any known contact Inez had, leading me to suspect she had a daughter who didn't survive her.
I will go to the site you recommended and see if any of thse names show up.I don't believe the grandson and granddaughter (married name, only, so I don't know parentage) ever went to Canada.
Any help whatsoever would mean a lot to finding the last of this line of Hardings.As far as I know, the line ends with them. Shirley Maynard Hampton, VA MaeMay510@aol.com
