Hi all!My father has been searching for our Loder connection for years so I thought I'd take the chance and post what little info we have in the hopes someone will see a connection.Here goes:
I have an ancestor whose name is Asa LODER Gard(i)ner, b. Jun 12, 1824 in Harmony, Warren Co., NJ; m. to Mary Kutz, d. Aug 6, 1915 in Wilkes-Barre, PA. It is his middle name that makes us think there is a relationship to the Loders.
Asa's father: Theophilus Gard(i)ner, b. c. 1800 & d. c. 1831
Asa's mother: Hannah SMITH, b. c. 1800 - no other info.Hannah Smith's parents names were possibly Peter Smith and Hannah Yerkes.
