(biography continues with his son, George W. Harding).

      Source: Churches of Guernsey Co., Vol II - Pleasant Hill Methodist Protestant Church, March 1996 (Death Records, page 42). JOHN D. HARDING - Died Nov. 30, 1868 of pneumonia. Buried at Pleasant Hill. Brother Harding was born in Frederick County, Md. March 7th, 1798 and departed this life Nov. 30th 1868, aged 70 years, 8 months, and 23 days. He united with the church in May, 1837. He was a genial companion; often at the close of Sabbath service in the old log meeting house, would he return with my father to our house, and take me on his knee, for I was a boy then. He would stroke my hair, and then tell my Father the Will will some day be a man. Years rolled around and wide space separated me from my childhood home. I became a man and he went down to the river; at three score years and ten he found a boat, and passed to the other shore. I was summoned to preach the funeral for I was a man now. But in my hear, I cried My Father, My Father, the chariot and horseman of Israel.
