Thank you very much for your response. I have been able to piece this family together through death records from Howard Co. and alot of great information from the Orange Co. web site. Death records indicate that William R. Johnson was married to Mary Cornwell, however I haven't found a marriage record for them. Do you have information that may indicate wether Mary may have been married before and so Hardin may have been a maiden name or name from a previous marriage? Are you connected to this family?
