John Harding, Blacksmith

Blacksmiths and other tradesmen were essential to colony life
Harding, John, blacksmith. Harding's first wife died June of 1737, and he afterwards married the widow of George Spencer and resided in Spencer's house in Frederica. At the time, Rev. Norris was accused of having raped Miss Penner, so Harding refused to be married by the minister. Instead, he made a public announcement in the town of his intention. Harding and the Widow Spencer had four children, including a son named Isaac by 1743.  A sketch of him is found in "Biographical Sketches" in Georgia Pioneers
