A life-long bachelor, Harding lived a simple life, teaching Sunday School, working his farm with a team of mules, raising a lot of his own food, and making do with what he had. Every day could be a good day. He was also a master teacher at one of the last one room schoolhouses in Kentucky, often welcoming guest educators who came from other states to glean from his teaching methods. Like most things Appalachian, there’s much more to Harding Ison than meets the eye.
