Your Question,
"I found a biography recently for John H. HARDIN in which he states that his

father, William HARDIN was born in Virginia in 1790. Could this William
possibly be the son of William and Jemima HARDIN?"

I believe you are referring to John Hooten Hardin born 8 Feb 1823 in
Rockcastle County and he died 07 Dec 1896 in Danville, Hendricks County, IN.
He married Mary Elizabeth Pearcy who was born 10 Sep 1827 in VA. They were
married 21 Nov 1847 in Indiana.

From Lorraine Hudson, (To Darrell Miller 2005}
Church Records of Scaffold Cane Church
Dec 2, 1822- Bro's Hardin from Mt Vernon attended the meeting.
Feb4, 1825- Received Wm hardin and wife Mary (This is Mary Anderson and Wm
Hardin was later ordained as a minister,) He was on committees to go to
other churches and was an Elder of studying in the church.
July 4, 1825- Received Elijah Giles and sister Susannah, his wife,
july 4, 1828 Wm Hardin and wife Mary request letter of dismissal from the

William A's marriage to Elizabeth Roberts in 1833. She was the daughter of
the Rev. War Soldier Mourning Roberts. He was a member of the Scaffold Cane
Baptist Church in 1820, as was Eljiah Giles. Elizabeth's sister, Sarah, was
married to James A Loman, also of Scaffold Cane Church. Elizabeth's brother
was John Roberts and his son, William James Roberts, married Julia Ann
Clark. Julia was the daughter of Wallis James Clark and Rebecca Abney, who
lived at Red Lick. Wallis James Clark was the son-in-law of William Hardin
and Jemima as he was also married to Elizabeth Hardin.

What has muddied up the waters here is the Middle Name of Allensworth and
the confusion about whether or not this William married an Allensworth and
the thought that this William could be the son of Henry Hardin who married

"Henry entered the Revolutionary War Pension #516145 early fall of 1775.
(He was not married until Oct 31, 1782 to Delilah Allensworth)
n the Battle of Cowpens; Eutau Springs; 96

1- 1775 Stafford County, VA. 4 to 6 months discharged in 4 months and went
back to Hyco Creek where he first joined the Army - fought Indians

2- 1776- Reinstated again from Hyco Creek and went to NC. - in 6 months was
discharged and went back to Hyco Creek.

3 - 1780- Reenlisted 3rd time - 18 months @ Woodstock, VA. in Shenandoah
County, VA, In service 1782- discharged in VA. and returned home to
Woodstock, VA where he previously enlisted and stayed there until 1796- when
he removed to Dearborn County, Indiana

Now if the Rev. Wm. A. who married Mary Anderson is his son, he couldn't
have been born in Grayson County, VA. in 1791- (Henry was in Shenandoah
County, VA. at the time of his Marriage 1782! This is the time Henry was
married to Allensworth.
Also - If Henry was in Indiana in 1796 and William came to R.C. County, KY.
and married 1815- why didn't he stay with his father Henry?"

"The William A. stayed in R.C. Co. to 1833- By census house # he lived by
Josiah, Jeremiah.
I still say this William is ours- William in 1822 sold the farm in Grayson
Co. VA. for $150 gave $25 to church and then purchased 100 acres @
Roundstone in KY. He also was in Scaffold Cane Church (he was first in Mt
Vernon Church) in 1822 2with wife Mary and left the church with Mary 1825-
He then was an elder or preacher- Mary died 1833- and the following fall
married Elizabeth Roberts and went to Indiana. Mary is buried in Scaffold
Cane old cemetery, tombstone cracked in half now.
Also William is found on the 1813 tax list Madison County, alongside Josiah,

ALSO- Rev William A Harden was born in 1791- subtract his age born= 1791 -
73 = 1764, Father's age when born as he was first born- as Henry was born
1752- strange !!!
Father married 1782- 1752 age born = 30 yrs old when married but Henry
waited 9 yrs to have his first William A in 1791- ?????????????

(Excerpts from Lorraine Hudson of Delaware.)

So was he or was he not the (William) son of Henry or was he the son of Wm
and Jemima??

I just know that the area of Rockcastle where he lived was exactly where the
descendents of Wm and Jemima lived and this is proven by land records.

Still trying to sort out William Hardin marriages to

Delilah and Mary Allensworth and the William who married Sally Trigg. Too
many Wm's

Subject: [HARDIN-L] William & Jemima HARDIN's sons: Josiah, William, & James

Dear list members,

There was a recent posting that informed us there is definitely no son of
William and Jemima HARDIN named Dudley. That leaves Josiah, b. 1785,
William, b. 1786, and James N., b. 1795 (according to Tom Hardin's records
and kind correspondence).

As you have read in recent months, I am trying to learn why my Jarvis Frank
HARDIN can be found in records from Madison County, Kentucky and to which
family he should belong.

I was told that William HARDIN may have moved to Indiana, and Jarvis HARDIN
moved to Hendricks County, Indiana before 1835. These are the HARDIN
households in the 1850 Hendricks County, IN census:

I found a biography recently for John H. HARDIN in which he states that his
father, William HARDIN was born in Virginia in 1790. Could this William
possibly be the son of William and Jemima HARDIN?

Hoping to hear from someone.

Thank you,
