The Harding plot is right by the entrance to the cemetery, and I did a double-take as we drove by it. It's a remarkable monument, with an ingenious, whimsical design. It's been made to look like a Victorian rolltop desk, with the names of the family members carved all over it in odd places, like the top of a ledger, the pages of a book, and the panels of the desk. It is truly a unique piece of work, and worth a visit to the cemetery on it's own. 

There are individual markers for several of the Harding family placed around the central monument.

The individual markers in the Harding plot are all tree-related. The smaller round markers with initials resembler tree stumps; see the picture below.
