WILLIAM H. H. GARDNER, a well-to-do and enterprising farmer of
Warrick County, Indiana, is a native of the township in which he yet
resides, his birth occurring October 6, 1834. He is one of eight
children born to the marriage of William Gardner and Frances Maria
(Glass) Gardner, who came to Warrick County, Indiana about the year
1833, settling a short distance east of Newburgh. William H. H. Gardner,
subject of this biography, remained at home and assisted his parents on
the farm until he attained his majority, during which time he received
but a meager schooling. March 23, 1856, he united in marriage with Julia
F. Brown, and ten children have blessed their union, these eight now
living: Samuel S. (married Dortha Gordon), Homer A. (married Mary E.
Peppmiller), Anna (married), John T., Melissia C., Lana A., O. E., and
Etta F. Mr. Gardner has made farming his occupation through life, and by
industry and good management has become the owner of a good farm of 170
acres. In politics he is a Democrat, and in all public affairs he
manifests a lively interest. He and his family are among the best of
Ohio Township's Citizens.
