Thanks to Gladys Turman for submitting this information
on this family.
My mother, Georgia Safronia Harden, was born 18 may 1893, Bellefonte, Boone
County, Ark. she died 1 June 1965 Tulsa, Okla. and is buried at Sperry, OK.
She was a daughter of HIRAM HARDEN, born 7 May 1853 Bellefonte, Ak. died
1908 Clarksville, Ok. He married, 28 Sept. 1879 Harrison, Ark. to Martha
Elizabeth Bowlin, born 1857 Marshall Co. Ky. and died in Bellefonte, Ark. in
1896. She may have been buried in the Starkey Cemetery. HIRAM HARDEN was the
son of THOMAS PRESLEY HARDEN,born 1820 Lincoln Co. Tenn. died in Bellefonte,
Ark. ? He married 4 Dec. 1850 Shelby Co. Tenn. to MANERVA JANE STARKEY, born
1834 Davidson Co. Tenn. died perhaps in Russellville, Ark. she remarried to
a WILLIAM SMITH, the widower of her sister Tenn. Starkey.THOMAS PRESLEY
HARDEN was the son of WILLIAM HARDEN born 1795 North Carolina and was
murdered in Bellefonte, Ark. by two men who wanted to know where he had hid
his money. They didn't find his body until a year later and he was layed to
rest on his farm north of Bellefonte. He married AGNAS (AGGY) HALE, born
1800 Tenn. and died after 1880 in Boone Co. Ark. WE believe that WILLIAM
HARDEN (HARDIN) was related in some way to the MOSES HARDIN of Lincoln co.
Tenn. as the name HIRAM and PRESLEY were used.
