Your Hiram B. Harter was the brother of my wife's ancestor Benjamin Franklin Harter, also of Jay County, IN. Their parents were Henry Harter and Mary Ann Teaford, who married in Darke Co., Ohio, before moving to Noble Township in Jay Co.. I have Henry Harter's line back to the immigrant ancestor Andreas -- I have this Harter line posted as "Descendants of Andreas Harter of Lancaster County, PA" at the following (case-senstitive) URL:www.familytreemaker.com/users/g/i/b/James-H-Gibbs
Who were Mary Ann Teaford's parents? I have found other Teafords in the area at this time, but have not been able to connect Mary Ann. My other connecting surnames in Jay County include Jetter and Wile.
