Our Maryland Heritage, Book 39: The Harding Families


Mr. Hurley’s Our Maryland Heritage series continues with this book, which investigates the Harding families, primarily of Montgomery County, but also includes family members found in other Maryland counties and elsewhere. This study began with the goal of providing information about the Harding families generally found in Montgomery County, as listed in the various census returns from 1850 to 1900, and expanded to include information from a number of other sources. Individual chapters are devoted to: John Harding (1683-1752), John Lackland Harding (1780-1835), Elizabeth Harding (1758-1823), John W. Harding (1789-1861), Elizabeth Harding (1824-1892), Zachariah Harding (1839-1911), Elias Harding (died 1832), Robert Henry Harding (1825-), Harding families of Frederick County, and miscellaneous Harding families. The data contained in this report has been prepared from information found in a variety of sources, including records found at the library of the Montgomery County Historical Society, such as family files, church and cemetery records, obituary collections and the published books and abstracts held by the library in their research collection; as well as the personal library of the author, and earlier family studies. A bibliography and a full-name index add to the value of this work.
