Henry Harder Jasper IA , Day County SD
Posted by: Joe Osborn Date: February 02, 2002 at 20:59:21
  of 591

In the 1870 Jasper County IA, Josephine Young , the wife of Henry Harder , is listed with her parents:

1870 Jasper County IA Census
2 July 1870
Rock Creek
Pg 8/ 447
Houshold 54/55

Young Nicholes 47 M Farmer NY
Margarett 42 F Keeps House NY
Josephine 19 F None ILL
William 16 M Farming Iowa
Mary 12 F School ILL
Charles 9 M School ILL
John 5 M School ILL

In the 1880 Jasper County IA Census she is listed as the wife of Henry Harder and her parents live nextdoor:

1880 Jasper County IA Census
5 July 1880
Rock Creek
ED 92 sheet 24
Household 70/71
Young Nicholas M 54 Head Farmer NY NY NY
Margarett F 52 Wife NY NY NY
William M 26 Son ILL NY NY
Charles M 17 Son ILL NY NY

Household 71/72

Harder Henry M 34 Head Farmer NY NY NY
Josephine F 30 Wife Ill NY NY
????? M 10 Son Iowa NY NY ( Alonzo?))
Guy M 8 Son Iowa NY ILL
Lottie F 7 Daughter Iowa NY ILL
Franklin M 6 Son Iowa NY ILL
Blanch F 3 Daughter Iowa NY ILL
Kutie F 2/12 Daughte Iowa NY ILL

The question is how did Josephine marry Henry in 1866?? Notice also that Alonzo, in the 1880 Census, mother was born in NY not ILL as stated on the Children

Alonzo is also listed in the 1900 Day County SD Census he stills list his mother as being born in NY

1900 Day County Census

Sidnie Son Feb 1898 2 SD IA Norway
Jennettie Daug Mar 1899 1 SD IA Norway
Harder Millie Sister Apr 1886 14 SD NY NY

The 1900 Day County Census for Henry Harter:
Union Township
13 June 1900
ED 116 Sheet 8

Harter Henry Aug 1846 53 NY NY NY
Mary Wife Aug 1866 33 Norway Norway Norway
Frank Son Mar 1877 23 IA NY ILL
Tracy son Oct 1886 13 SD NY ILL (Probably 1887 see Millie with Alonzo)
Mimma Daugh Oct 1892 7 SD NY Norway ( Emma?)
Allington Son Jan 1897 3 SD NY Norway
Chancy Son Jan 1899 1 SD NY Norway

Clearly Henry and Mary married prior to 1892 as Emma is the daughter of Mary.

This is what I have come to Henry married Unknown Issue was Alonzo, Henry Married Josephine Young in IA about 1871? Sometime between 1887 and 1892 Josephine dies and Henry married Mary Peterson?

How does Henry become Charles Henry?

Most of what I find here does not connect with what I have seen posted elsewhere.

Thanks for any help.
