Abner C. Harding was born in East Hampton, Middlesex County, Conn., Feb. 10, 1807.  He attended the Hamilton, N. Y. Academy, was subsequently admitted to the bar and practiced law for some time in Oneida County, N. Y., moving then to Warren County, Ill., where he was actively engaged in the practice of his profession for fifteen years. He was a member of the Illinois constitutional convention in 1848, served in the legislature, 1848-50, and for the ten years prior to the Civil War was engaged in railway enterprises.  Enlisting in the 83rd Ill. infantry as a private in 1862, but was soon appointed colonel, was promoted brigadier-general of volunteers for bravery at Fort Donelson, and in 1863 had command at Murfreesboro, Tenn until his resignation on June 3, 1863.  He was then a representative in the 39th and 40th Congresses, 1865-69, and after that devoted his attention principally to the promotion of railway enterprises in Illinois.  He endowed a professorship in Monmouth College and gave generously to other educational institutions.  Gen. Harding died in Monmouth, Ill., July 19, 1874 and is buried there in Monmouth Cemetery.   [AD][ph:L]
