March 17, 1885, Harding, Mr. William Harding about 80 years of age died at the Alms House yesterday and will be buried in Potter's Field..
(There are no known records of burial for Potters Field, records for death for Maryland did not start until 1900, then were not enforced until (1910 or after) There are no records or Tombstones in Potters Field, just a flat level ground no one knows who or how many were buried in there. I am so grateful I found this small obit on William.

LONACONING, MD., March, 5.
Frederick Hardin died suddenly at his home in Gilmore Wednesday morning, about nine o'clock. Mr. Hardin had been ailing for several months, but was able to get about. In the morning he rose as usual and ate a hearty breakfast. Just before 9 o'clock he laid down, saying that he did not feel well and in a few minutes he was dead. Deceased is survived by his aged wife and ten children: Herbert, Sanford, Lloyd and Howard all of Meyersdale; and Joseph of Gilmore; Mrs. Ellsworth Glover, Charleroi, Pa. Mrs. Frank Macabee of Cumberland, Mrs. Thos. Hughes and Mrs. George Robinson both of Miller Mines.
Mr. Hardin was six feet two inches tall and weighed more that two hundred pounds, and when in his prime was one of the strongest men in Allegany County. He was the first bailiff of Frostburg and did police duty in that city for several years. He had two brothers living in Meyersdale, John and Charles and two sisters, Mrs. Harriett Heckshaw of Cumberland and Mrs. John Oskin of Frostburg. Mrs. Hardin informed the reporter that her husband had served in Company C Potomac Home Brigade during the civil war, but she has no documentary evidence of his service. He was a coal miner many years, and was widely known throughout the county.
The service will take place next Sunday at 2:30 and interment will be made in Old Coney cemetery.
