I am very interested in finding out who the TOMPKINS family was that married into the HARDY PIERCE lines. There was HARDY's son: 1. JOHN MORTON PIERCE, b ABT 1800 who m. MARY TOMPKINS. There was HARDY's dau: SARAH PIERCE, b. ABT 1812 who m. JENKINS TOMPKINS And HARDY's brother: 2. ARTHUR PIERCE, b. ABT 1780. His second wife was NANCY TOMPKINS.
HARDY and his brother ARTHUR PIERCE were from TN or NC. This would be around the late 1700s to early 1800s.
