Four generations of the Hardin family in front of the Methodist Church
in Kimberly, Idaho, about 1912. The three men in this photo were all
Methodist ministers: left to right are Franklin A. Hardin, Floyd B.
Hardin with baby Oliver, and Franklin B. Hardin. At the time of this
photo, Franklin A. was retired, and Franklin B. was minister at the
church. Franklin B. died a short time later, and Floyd, who had just
become a minister, completed his father's term at the church.

Photo notes. The
sepia-toned photos on this website are from our members' family history
collections. Most of the photos have been colorized to provide the
sepia hue. We provide these photos and bits of information to intrigue,
interest and sometimes amuse our visitors. We all delight in photos of
our families and hope you enjoy these that we share. Note that photos
