I am forwarding this email with permission from Fran, who descends from
Hannah Gist. If anyone has any additional information to share on her, her
ancestry, or her Hardy husband, we'd sure appreciate it
I already have a Gist connection in my ggg.grandfather, "James Harve Gist",
born 1836 in Wayne Co. KY., who moved to AL., about 1855 and married Nancy
Jane Pace, a close neighbor to Christopher Gist of Old Hancock Co., at the
I believe James's father was Aaron Gist, found on the 1850 Whitley Co. KY.,
census, showing his birth in TN., c1800, and that Aaron was likely a brother
to Christopher, also showing TN., as his state of birth not long afterwards.

I also have a Hardy connection, but it's from Bertie and Hertford Co.'s in
NC., in the mid-1700's, so I don't think we connect to same Hardy
generation, but would like to see if our Gist lines hook up somehow, or to
at least give Fran a help with hers.

Appreciate anything on Hannah and hers....

Christi, I have not pursued the GIST mailing list, but I have checked on the
Gist surname and found background info on her parents. I've learned about
Hannah's siblings, as well as her children with Jesse HARDY.

Hannah GIST(born abt 1812) was the daughter of Christopher GIST (Sr.) and
Elizabeth Darby WOOD. Hannah GIST and Jesse HARDY were parents of 12
children born between 1838 and 1862. One source listed Jesse & Hannah in
Henderson Co in the 1840 census.

I take it you are already on the GIST mailing list? If you would wish to
query the list for me go for it. Or, when I get back into my normal routine
I can do it. I'm leaving Nov 3 for Salt Lake City for a week of research so
I'd rather not personally undertake another research right at the moment, in
case something positive turns up.

The only down side to going on a trip is getting caught up with things upon
return. Thanks. Fran
