  • Notes 
    • It appears that her parents were both dead in 1880, as she is living with her aunt, Mary Grove (sister of Luella's mother, Cyrena). She is widowed and living in Xenia with her children and her brother, Robert Hardesty, in 1900. It appears that Curtis and May were listed that year also as inmates of the Clinton Co. Children's Home - although the birth year for Curtis is off by 3 years. In 1910 she is listed as a Spinner in a twine mill. She died of pneumonia around 1916. Her daughter, Dorothy was taking care of her in Xenia at the time of her death. She died at age 49 of Pernicious Anemia.
