Thanks for the reply Cynthia, I suppose my question was confusing in that I was inquiring about the Hardage Post Office in Shannon Co, MO. I thought maybe some of the Hatridges had gone into SE Mo. and were responsible for the name. I was also inquiring if the Wm. HARDRIDGE in the census was possibly William Hatridge. All I have on these folks is basically what is posted on the Genforum and on other internet sites. Thanks again. Mike H.
