Harriet A. Marine, daughter of Asa and Mary (Crane) Marine was born on October 2, 1839 in Indiana, probably in Middlebury Township of Elkhart County. She would have been about six years old when her family moved to Morgan Township in Porter County, Indiana in 1846.

On December 20, 1861, Harriet married Josephus Comer, the son of Lewis P. and Catharine (Baum) Comer. They had four children (in birth order): Clara G., Will E., Ora J., and Bessie M. Comer.

Josephus farmed until 1883, when suffering from rheumatism, he sold their farm. The next year, on May 31, 1884, Harriet died of consumption at the age of 44.

Their oldest child, Clara, had preceded her mother in death two years before, at the age of eighteen. Josephus and their two sons moved to Kansas. The youngest child, Bessie, who was three years old when her mother died, remained in Porter County and was raised in the home of her uncle, John W. Marine.
