    (18 Apr 1918)

    From the Loyal Tribune, Thursday April 18, 1918 Mrs. Charles Harding died at her home in West Beaver, Wednesday evening April 10th. at the age of 73 years, 10 months, and 24 days. Pamela Ann Pierce was born in Warren Co. New York, May 17, 1844. When she was quite small she came with her parents by way of Milwaukee to Vernon Co. where she grew to young womanhood. In early girlhood she was converted and became one of Christs followers, joining the M. E. Church. She was a very patient sufferer, waiting for her Masters call. She was one of Christs followers for 60 years, the last few months she was longing for the call "Come Home". About 51 years ago she came to what is now the village of Loyal, and on Sept. 23, 1868 was united in marriage to Mr. C. D. Harding forming the third family at Loyal. Shortly after marriage they moved to their homestead three miles East of Loyal where they made their home for 9 years. Then to the village of Loyal where they lived for 14 years. About 26 years ago they moved to West Beaver where she resided with her son Lewis where she passed away. Mr. Harding died June 4, 1908 at the old home. Four children were born to this union, Minnie, Cornelia, George, and Lewis. Both girls passed away, and George has'nt been heard from for three years. Deceased leaves to mourn her loss, her son Lewis, one brother Frank Pierce of Quinyun, N. Dak. and two sisters, Mrs. J. Tinin of Fond du Lac and Mrs. Phoebe Oxford of Mont., besides a host of friends and neighbors who extend their heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved ones. The funeral services were held at the Methodist Church of Loyal on Sunday afternoon, Rev. E.E. Strevey officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the Loyal cemetery
