Tombstone Tuesday~Paul and Dagny Harding

Paul and Dagny Harding Tombstone. Date October 27, 2007. Location Rowlands, Pennsylvania. Digital Image. Privately held by Msteri, [ADDRESS FOR PRIVATE USE] California. 2008


My trip to Pennsylvania last year was primarily to see the house and area where my ancestors settled in this country. Paul and Dagny were both born in Norway. They came to this country at different times in their lives, met here, married and had 8 children.

Paul's birth name was Paul Hardin Gustavsen. When he came to this country he dropped the Gustavsen and went by Paul Harding. I have heard that he wasn't happy in his homeland as there was a blended marriage and lots of children in a small house.

Dagny Dulin on the other hand supposedly came from a family of wealth and therefore makes it more intriguing to me to find out why she left her home in Norway.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
