Subject: [SCKY] James HARDCASTLE - Revolutionary War - grave site

I am looking for information on my 3rd great-grandfather, James HARDCASTLE
(1756-Nov. 14, 1828), who served in the American Revolution from Johnston
County, NC. I descend through his son Shadrack.
According to a DAR application (from a woman who descended through one of
his other sons, William:
"Fought in Revolution from Johnston, North Carolina, 1781 - North Carolina
Revolutionary Accounts, Vol. VII, page 112, folio 3."
He and his wife Rachel (probably RILEY) came to Warren County, apparently
on a land grand for his services, in 1815.
According to the DAR abstract of graves of patriots:
HARDCASTLE, James Willoughby farm Cem Rd, 13 mi fr Bowling Green KY
59 Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots, Vol.2, p. Serial:
12260; Volume: 5
I have been up and down KY 59 (Cemetery Road) in Warren and into Allen
County. I have asked many people about this with no success. None of the
records have him in either of the Allen County Willoughby cemeteries. I
understood the previous notation to be that maybe the DAR put a marker on
And who knows where the Bowling Green boundaries were in those days!
James was the son of William and Mary WILLOUGHBY HARDCASTLE, both of whom
died in Johnston County.
Any information or speculation is welcome!
