Harding, John E.
JOHN E. HARDING.
In the death of John Emory Harding, of Northumberland County, Va., another of our veterans of that incomparable body of men, the glorious cavalry of Northern Virginia, has gone to join the great majority "over there."
John E. Harding was the son of James Harding, Sr., and was reared at their beautiful home, La Grange, in Northumberland County. He joined the Confederate army in 1861 and followed Lee and Jackson through the entire war, surrendering at Appomattox. Returning home, he married Miss Laura Hughlett, an elegant Southern woman. He died at his home on January 21, 1922, after a long illness, and is survived by his devoted wife, four sons, and four daughters.
John Emory Harding and his brother James O. Harding belonged to the 9th Virginia Cavalry, Company D. No truer, better, or braver soldiers ever took up arms in defense of their beloved Southland; no sacrifice was too great for them to make.
