Mr. Hardin was for many years a familiar figure about Ashland and Saunders county being county surveyor for many years. He was also government surveyor and assisted in surveying several counties in the western part of the state. Mr. Hardin came to Nebraska about 1866 or 67. He was a most highly respected citizen.
The remains of William Hardin, who was buried in the Ashland cemetery last Thursday, was one of the active pioneers of the state of Nebraska, coming to the state in the year 1868. For many years he was the surveyor of Saunders county, and assisted in the government survey of the greater part of the west part of the state. Mr. Hardin is remembered by many of the older citizens of Ashland as a man of fine character.
The deceased was born in Morrix X Roads, Fayette county, Penn., May 13, 1826, on the farm that his grandfather received from King George of England in 1760. He received his education in Madison College, Penn. And in 1855 moved to Iowa City, Iowa, thence in 1868 to Nebraska, and the following year to Ashland, where for almost 30 years the family resided. Mrs. Hardin passed away October, 1904. Since this time the deceased has made his home with his children and grandchildren. He is survived by three children, M. B. Hardin of Pender, g.
