  • Obituary, 1918: CHARLES HARDON, the son of Nathan and Sally (Hodges) Hardon, was born in Mansfield, Mass., Jan. 2, 1833, and was fitted for college at Mansfield Academy. [¶] After graduation he studied theology at Andover Theological Seminary for three months, at Oberlin Theological Seminary for six months, and later by himself while farming and teaching. He taught at Delaware Literary Institute, Franklin, N. Y., 1856 — 1862; in the preparatory department, Urbana University, Urbana, Ohio, 1862 — 1864. While in Urbana he studied Swedenborgianism at Urbana University. He was ordained in the New Jerusalem Church, Urbana, Dec. 4, 1864, and was stated supply at that church, 1864—1865; at St. Louis, Mo., 1866—1867; in Mansfield and Foxboro, Mass., 1867 — 1868; missionary of the New Church Association for Massachusetts, residing in Lowell, Mass., 1868—1871; pastor at Contoocookville, N. H., 1871 — 1874. He was also principal of the academy in the latter place, which position he held, 1872—1875, and 1877—1879. He was stated supply at Peoria, Ill., 1875 — 1876; at Providence, R. L, 1879 — 1881, and preached at Salem, Mass., 1881—1882.

    On account of asthma he gave up preaching and engaged in canvassing. He also published a small paper and many articles in connection with the New Church denomination and in regard to the Single Tax question. [¶] In December, 1914 Mr. Hardon removed to California on account of the climate. Mr. Hardon died of valvular heart disease, April 28, 1917, in Pomona, Cal. The interment was in Pasadena, Cal.

    Mr. Hardon published tracts on The Second Coming of our Lord; Regeneration; Atonement; and many other subjects. [¶] "He was ever identified with all that made for the progress and uplift of humanity, an earnest worker and leader for many years in the grange, both local and county, a member of the Odd Fellows' lodge, and a newspaper writer of much local renown, always handling his subject with keen wit and understanding. For several years he was editor and proprietor of the Contoocook Independant, which he founded. He was a true friend, loved and honored by all who knew him."

    Mr. Hardon was married, (1) Aug. 20, 1863, to Mary, daughter of David Cathcart of Urbana, Ill. [sic.], who died Dec. 18, 1866; (2) In 1867, to Mrs. Clara A. McGlathry Pratt, daughter of William H. McGlathry of Frankfort, Me., who died March 13, 1870; (3) Sept. 29, 1871, to Annie E., daughter of William H. McGlathry of Frankfort, Me., who died June 5, 1909. [¶] There were four children: Charles H , born June 14, 1864, Pomona, Cal.; Lottie S., born in October, 1866, died April 8, 1869; Rachel E., born in April, 1869, died Sept. 17, 1869; Annie M. (Mrs. J. W. Hazeltine), born in May, 1875, Contoocook, N. H."
