The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa
Thursday, December 10, 1908

JACOB D. HARDIN was born Oct. 4, 1834, in Zanesville, Ohio, and died at his
home in Chariton, Dec. 4, 1908, at the age of seventy-four years, two months
and twelve days. He had been ill for several months with Bright's disease,
having undergone an operation at the Chicago hospital during that time.

He was united in marriage at Johnstown, Penn., Nov. 8, 1860, to MISS
ELIZABETH PATTERSON, who survives him. They came to Iowa the same year
locating in Chariton, which place has since been their home, with the
exception of one year spent in Sidney, Iowa. In the summer of 1862 he
answered his country's call, enlisting in Company D of the 8th Iowa Cavalry,
serving as Captain of the company for three years, and performing every duty
in a commendable manner. Four children were born, namely, MRS. HOWARD SMITH of Holidaysburg, Penn., MRS. J.E. STEMEN of Red Oak, MRS. E.R. SARGENT of Des Moines, and JESSE P. of Chariton; all being present with the exception of MRS. SMITH.

MR. HARDIN had been in the employ of the C.B. & Q. R.R. Company for the past
thirty years, in the capacity of general stock agent. He was a good citizen
a kind husband and indulgent father, and always had a pleasant word for
those about him. Funeral services were held at the home Tuesday afternoon
at 2:30 o'clock, conducted by Rev. McCullagh of the Presbyterian Church, and
the remains interred in the Chariton Cemetery.
