"Trying to find birthdate of Josiah Harding"
This Might Help: FamilySearch.org
This MIGHT be him but one can never be too certain:
"married Lucinda myrick on vinalhaven in 1820"
Cannot firm this via FamilySearch of Maine Vital records. This is as close as I got: FamilySearch.org
You can consult this page: Vinalhaven Genealogy Resources & Vital Records | Knox County
Or you can contact the Maine Historical Society: MHS Discussion Board
thank you. i didn't add enough info. according to census reports he was born around 1797.
I just got 5 pages from national archives that prove Josiah was in war of aroostook and received a land grant. Still don't know his birthday. Jesse Harding above had a Josiah but date doesn't work. Brothers Josiah Joshua's and maybe ebenezer each had a Josiah. Josiah's Josiah was born in 1809 so doesn't work. Joshua's had a Josiah who has the right birth year and is used on find a grave but in "hardings of Maine" Marion l. Dunn thinks ebenezer was the brother of Joshua and Josiah and is my Josiah's dad but doesn't give a birthdate but he is my Josiah because she has him going to Devalan,Minnesota late in life.
