I am enclosing a letter from a dear dear friend who has helped me so much. If you could give me any guidance on this William G. Harder, I will dance at your wedding.The letter follows:
I am still working on my 2 grandfathers who have given me the most trouble. My mother never knew her father or her older half-bro. Her parents separated and divorced before she was old enough to know her dad. All I knew about him was his name and I had a great aunt whosaid, "I think he went to Tx." So I have found out a bunch on him except I can't find him in the 1880 census ot the Ark.Soundex as he was under 10 yrs. old. I have tried Ark,, Mo, Tenn, and Miss, for the 1880 Soundex and no luck. They may have been just over the border in Ok. (Indian Terr.) His name was Bryant Peter Harder, b. 1872 in Ark. and his father was Peter A. Harder, b. NY and his mother, (Unknown) ,b. Tenn. Any suggestons? I have him in all the other censuses from 1900-1930. I also would like to know when and where his son. William G. Harder died and if he left any descendants. His grandkds would be my age and I would lke to know them. My mother was an only child so we had no cousins or aunts and uncles.
