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.
