Dear Mr. Beckett,
I came across your Rootsweb page, and I happened to find some relativ es of mine on your page.
I thought I would let you know that Eula Triplett was the first wi fe of my great grandfather, John Ralph Harding (b. 21 April 1893, d. 18 S ep t. 1953 in Omaha, Nebraska).
I was raised in part by his second wife, Eula Greenfield (b. 11 April. 1 90 6, d. 14 Oct. 1996) (odd, two wives named Eula, I know).
Eula Triplett and John Ralph Harding had two children before their divor ce in 1928 (decree date - the divorce was filed by Eula in Morgan Cou nt y, Colorado).
One of their children was named Carrol E. Harding (b. 23 Mar. 1921 in Colo rado, d. June of 1981 in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma).
The other was Glenn (b. 11 April. 1916 in Colorado, d. Octob er of 19 83 in El Centro, California).
Your page has someone named "Devored Harding" - I'm not sure where that re fers to, but he or she has the same year of birth as Carrol. I'm not su re if you're interested, but I do have an image of the 1920 census with Jo hn Harding, Eula Triplett, and their son Glenn. If you'd like to have tha t, I can send it to you. I have an image of the 1930 census with Eula Trip lett and Carrol, as well, who were living with Eula's parents. Unfortunate ly, the pagination separates Eula and Carrol from Eula's parents, a nd I do not have the page preceding (containing the Triplett parents ). Bu t, if you would like to have that, I can send it, as well.
Best regards, Christina Harding
I forgot to mention, in case you're interested - I also have photos of Jo hn Ralph's and Eula Greenfield's gravestones.
I also forgot to mention that when John Ralph and Eula Triplett divorce d, their oldest son, Glenn, moved away with John, while Carrol stayed wi th his mother.
Anyway, hopefully some of this will be of interest.
