  • Notes 
    • As told by Cleva Hardin, John's daughter: When John was 75, there was a near tornado. He had been plowing a field with his team of mules and he walked between the mules all the way home using the mules as protection from the weather. They made it home just fine. Also at age 75, he built a new home for his second family. At age 80, he was cleaning fence rows with a scythe. He farmed until he was 90, when he had a stroke. They moved into Poplar Bluff, MO, but he still made a garden until he was 92, using a push cultivator. His right side was impaired by the stroke, but he was never paralyzed by it. He fathered his last child, Allan, at age 65, and probably would have had more, but Velma had her tubes tied...enough was enough! This information was distributed at John Hardin's funeral in Poplar Bluff, Missouri: John Henry Hardin January 8, 1875-1971 Some 96 years ago, on January 8, 1875, in Edmondson County, Kentucky, Mr. & Mrs. Daniel Jerome Hardin had a son, John Henry Hardin. John lived in an era which transcended from horse and buggy to the jet age. While in Kentucky, he married Pheba Humphries in 1893, and to their marriage there were ten (10) children and one died at birth: Bessie, Elzie, Effie, Ellis, Lillie, Roy, Cleva, Charles and Walter. In 1913 he and his family moved to Butler County, Missouri in a covered wagon which took approximately three weeks to make the trip. In 1933 John's wife went to be with the Lord. Later, in 1936, John remarried to Velma chambers of this city, and of their union there were four (4) children, Chesley, Shirley, Truman and Allan. His life was spent making a living for his family, and participating in local functions. John was not a nationally famous person, but to his family and friends, he was a most outstanding man, because he left his mark as a genuine person who never failed to be a man of his word. And his name will carried on through 103 descendants: 9 children; 34 grandchildren; 43 great grandchildren; and 17 great great grandchildren. However, there were four children who preceded him in death. Other Family "Rumors" as told by John Hardin 1. John came to Missouri from Kentucky in 1913 via Wickliff, KY to Butler County, MO by covered wagon. 2. Lillie bought a 1928 Chevrolet and ran into a wagon. 3. In 1929, John, Phoeba, Gwen, and Leonard move to Detroit and the went by train. John held his only public works job for just two weeks. 4. In 1929 he left Michigan for Redmon's near Conway, Arkansas. 5. In 1929-1930 he left Conway to Fairfield, Arkansas near Beebe, Arkansas. 6. In fall of 1931 he moved to Uncle Roy's house in Qulin which was bought by Glen Hill. 7. In 1934, Phoeba died of intestinal cancer in Uncle Roy's original house. (Cleon's old house) 8. Walter and Leonard were riding in a wagon of oats. The load shifted and the wagon ran over Dan Hardin. Dan died shortly after his accident. 9. Elzie was in the Army in WWI and had a daughter in France. After the war he traveled for the Ruth Lumber Company of Poplar Bluff. He married Eulah Grayson and had Maxine. Before he divorced Eulah, he had the house, which he had built on First Street in Poplar Bluff, burned to collect the insurance. 10. Elzie went to Detroit, Michigan to work for General Motors on Ellis Hardin's recall to work. In Detroit he married Sue Sevine, a Russian Jew/Catholic. 11. Lillie went to Cape College for a teaching degree. Places John & Phoeba lived: 1. On Section 18, Ackerman Ditch at Steel Camp on John A Glass' place (rented) 2. In a lumber company house across the road from Carter School on HH Highway 3. In Granny Carter's place at the mouth of the Dan River which is near Walter Griffin's old place about one mile south (also known as Ed Shell's place) (Lower Place) 4. In 1928 moved by wagon to Star School between Rumbar and St. Francis River. Here he lived with his sister Lillie, who taught at the school.
