Notes for John D. Hardman:
Accompanied his father-in-law to the Shawnee village near Chillocothe, Ohio to retrieve Peter.Saw Peter's two indian children and stated that they were pretty.
"John is said to have been the first white settler in what is now Skin Creek District where he settled on Little Skin Creek at the mouth of Curtis Run.Tradition says that Little Skin Creek had first been called Little Muddy by John Hacker in 1769.In that year, John Hacker brought his wife and their only child to live on the settlement on what has since been called Hacker's Creek.The summer of that year, John had cleared land, planted his corn and laid it by and went to South Branch for his family.Upon their return to Hacker's Creek, John discovered that the buffalo had recently broken his corn and devoured a lot of it and trampled the rest.He was so angry, he set out after the buffalo.The first day he trailed them to Curtis Run and there made camp and girdled some trees for a tomahawk claim.It was this land later owned by John Hardman.Shortly after John Hardman made his settlement, Richard Johnson took up a choice tract at the mouth of Charles Run and up and down Big Skin Creek from it.For nearly ten years, the Hardmans and Johnsons were the only permanent settlers in the district.John Hardman built a mill for grinding corn in the creek near his home.He sold the farm and the mill to Anthony Spaur about 1836 according to Sam B. Hardman.Called Rev. John D. Hardman in later life, he was an itinerant preacher, who, when he retired, often filled the pulpit of the Mt. Gilead Methodist Protestant Church at Georgetown.He was buried in the cemetary there."
