Fourth Generation


101. Rev. Henry Edward HARDIN124 was born on 12 April 1761 in Johnston County, North Carolina.125,126 He died on 12 November 1843 at the age of 82 in Walton County, Georgia.4,125

I believe Henry may very well be a SON of Mark & Mary Hunter Hardin, rather than a son of Henry & Judith as he is shown in some lineages.

Apparently no wife survived him.
Son Edward Jones Hardin, born 1803, said to be a child of the second wife Mary Jones. in DAR databases. Yet some of the databases give a death for the first wife, Sarah Cook Hardin as 1833.
Son Benjamin Cook Hardin was born 16 Nov 1792 and said to be a son of Sarah Cook. Harriet Hargrove Hardin, daughter, was born 11 Jul 1804 - yet she is said to be a daughter of Sarah Effie Cook and she seems to have been born after Edward Jones Hardin. Something definitely amiss.
