I am researching my great grandparents. My great grandfather MARTIN A WACKERLY came to America from Germany andmoved to Butler County sometime around 1870. He worked for a family named HARDING. As best as I can figure he married the daughter of the family, ANNIE KATHERINE HARDING in 1871.There were several children born to them, I think in Butler County. They were CASPER L. WACKERLY (1872), ANNA C. WACKERLY(1874) and HERMAN MIFELTON WACKERLY (1876). Sometime in 1876 family moved to Virginia. There is no information available through the family on the Harding family. I don't know if you access to research this or not but thought it would be worth the try.

Thank you for any help you may be able to share with me. Have a great day and thanks again. Jackie Gray
