Am looking for information on these names. All
that I have so far is that they were married in
Howard County 11 March 1908. On the marrige
certificate my grandmother lists her name as
Mrs. Zeliby Robins so this could possibly have
been her second marrige as I am told that her
maiden name was Purcell or Pursell. Also my
grandfathers name is William Henry Hardin from
Howard County. 2227 E. Norwich Fresno, CA 93726
