Update/correction to post re: Nathan and Emeretta Harden

After more research, my post on Jan. 7th was incorrect. Nathan and Emeretta did not come to Lexington together as Emeretta had died in 1873 back in Iowa after giving birth to her 10th child. (Viva la birth control!) She was, however, the mother of Charles E. Harden and apparently came from a prominent family, and was a learned and accomplished woman. My mother has pages from a diary kept by her father, so it will be interesting to read his recollections of those early years.
