I found this note about Benjamin Clardy (born 1706 in Virginia, married to Millicent):
"William Henry Perrin, ed, County of Christian, Kentucky: Historical and Biographical, (Chicago & Louisville, 1884; rpr. Easley, SC: Southern HIstorical Press, 1979), 492-293, Father [sic-grandfather] of Benjamin C. Clardy [i.e., BC I] came from France to Florida and then settled in North Carolina."
So Benjamin Clardy's father or grandfather came over from France and settled in North Carolina. My questions are does anyone know any info about where in France he came from, why he was there, and how long he had been there?
Really, any information preceding Benjamin Clardy being born in 1706 in Virginia would be appreciated.
