From Scott Bumbaugh:

Caroline Frances Bumbaugh was the daughter of James Bumbaugh and Isabella Peterson.  Caroline, or
Carrie as she was known, was born 28 February 1849 in Franklin County, Pennsylvania.  She died 3
April 1924 in McKeesport, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.  About 1867, probably in Preston County,
West Virginia, she married Hans Roland Hardman, the son of George H. Hardman and Nancy Blake.  Hans
was born 30 November 1846 in Virginia.  He died 28 February 1925 in East McKeesport, Allegheny
County, Pennsylvania.  Carrie and Hans are both buried in the Richland Cemetery in Dravosburg,
Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
They had eight children:
1.)  Ernest Russell Hardman, born 8 April 1868 in West Virginia (probably in Preston County).  He
died 22 July 1930 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, and is buried in Allegheny Cemetery.
 He married Frances May McShane, the daughter of Patrick McShane and Frances Small, about 1890
probably in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.  Frances May McShane was born 9 November 1868 in
Pennsylvania and died 27 August 1927 in Pittsburgh, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.
2.)  James W. Hardman, born about October 1869, probably in Lyon Township, Preston County, West
Virginia.  He died before the enumeration of the 1880 census. [DaveB: Looking at the original 1870
census, it gives James' birth month of Sept.]
3.)  George Walter Hardman, born 15 June 1871 in Morgantown, Monongalia County, West Virginia; died
19 September 1949 in East McKeesport, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.  On 14 August 1894, probably in
Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, he married Ida Mae Clarke, the daughter of Joseph C. Clarke and Mary
Ann RIce.  Ida Mae Clarke was born 11 October 1876 in Clarksburg, Harrison County, West Virginia, and
died 13 May 1957 in East McKeesport, Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.  George and Ida are buried in
the Penn-Lincoln Memorial Cemetery in Irwin, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania.
4.)  Frank B. Hardman, born January 1873 in West Virginia.
5.)  Agnes Grace Hardman, born August 1874 in West Virginia.
6.)  Hattie Hardman, born 1877 in West Virginia.
7.)  Malvin (Melville) Hardman, born 1879 in Lyon Township, Preston County, West Virginia.  About
1901 he married Margaret L. (surname unknown), probably in McKeesport, Allegheny County,
Pennsylvania.  Margaret was born 6 October 1879 in Pennsylvania.  She died 12 September 1969, but I
don't have a location.
8.)  Arthur Dent Hardman, born 12 April 1880 in Lyon Township, Preston County, West Virginia; died 9
September 1964 in Pennsylvania.  About 1902  he married Lynn Craig.  Lynn was born about 1881 in
Pennsylvania.  I have no information on her family.
