Your heroism and service is honored today, the 110th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Rest In Peace

Over the years my two sisters have been searching through our family linage. We had been informed by other family members that we had a grate uncle who had been shot and killed, in the line of duty. He had two brothers T.J. Hartford, who served as the Chief of Police and my grandfather George Hartford both from Appalachia, Va. My grandfather George Hartford worked for the railroad also in Appalachia, Va. We have had other family members who have served in Law Enforcement throughout the United States. We had searched the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, ( ) but only found one Police officer from Corbin, Ky. What a wonderful tribute you have made to my grate Uncle Henry Hartford and all of the other Officers who gave their all for us. Our family has always known the badge on the uniform is a shield of public trust. Thank you from my family and for me in honoring him this way, thank you. We have no Picture of him and it is said to learn he was so young. May God truly Bless all of them who keep us safe.
