In search of Grabeel & Harding Families connected in Kansas
Looking for connections to the Grabeel and Harding families that married in Liberal. Kansas 1927? Moved to Colorado, Kansas and then to California.
Charles Victor Grabeel--born Feb. 12, 1900 in Strafford, Missouri-- married Mora Leola Harding--born May 20,1911 in Liberal, Kansas. Charles was born to Thomas Ervin Grabeel and Belle Cora McSwain. He was one of nine children. Charlie and Belle both died in Liberal in the early 1940s.
Mora was born to Lee R. Harding and Frankie Fern Schooler. She was one of nine. She claimed a relation to President Harding and said she found the link, but it has been lost since we could not find it after her death. I have been unable to find any information on Schooler at all.
Charli and Mora had seven children. One of them married into the McAllister family. Two of Charlie's sisters also married McAllister(s). The third marriage of McAllister/Grabeel was of second cousins.
If you have any information on any of these people please contact me. It would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Chris
