|HENRY BARDIN—The subject of this sketch has the honor of being the seventh born in a family which is well known throughout California, that of Mr. James Bardin, deceased. Our subject is a native of Mississippi, where he was born December 20, 1853, and consequently was but two years of age when the family removed to the "Golden State," in 1855. (A full account of the settlement of the family at Blanco is given elsewhere in this book).
Henry grew up on his father's estate, and January 10, 1883, he married Miss Martha Thompson, a daughter of Martin J. Thompson, and a native of California, having been born in Sonora, Sacramento county. She has born her husband three children, namely: Roy, Hazel and Ethel.
Mr. and Mrs. Bardin reside on their beautiful home, situated three miles from Salinas city, consisting of 250 acres of choice land. Mr. Bardin enjoys the respect of his fellow-citizens and is a thoroughly reliable gentleman.
