"Trying to find if John H. Hardy b. 1780 buried in Hardy Cemetery north of Dothan, AL & Rhody Hardy b. 1794 are parents of Lenoir Hardy b. 1826-1829 - father of William Lenoir Hardy.Rumor says that Lenoir was Indian boy taken in by family.Have no proof one way or other.Have also reached brick wall of John Hardy.Lenoir Hardy & his two wives are buried in Leon County, TX.
I am trying to connect with the Hardy family from Lenoir County, etc.A John Hardy b. 1780 in Al or SC m Rhody Phillips @ 1810 in Lenoir, NC maybe.Had children including a Richard J. .Can't find Lenoir on any family censuses.Do find him in 1855 on Al state census and land records.The John Hardy family moved to Jasper County, GA abt 1817-1820 with Phillips family from. NC.Then moved to Pulaski County, GA abt 1850.Lenoir md Sarah Ann Pope in Pulaski County, GA in 1852.Lenoir had seven children, one was William Lenoir Hardy, my g grandfather.They moved about Civil War time or shortly after to Florida or Western Alabama.They ended up in Leon County, TX

Source:Virginia P. Beckett...My g-great grandmother was Jemima Hardy, b 1775, NC d 1868 Green Hall, Jackson County, KY m ca 1794 Charles Phillips.She was the daughter of John Hardy/Hardee and Mary Phillips, or the daughter of Benjamin Hardy.I cannot establish which is correct.The name William is frequently used.There is a William Hardy Phillips, as if named after someone by that name.
