SAR Application through Moses has a serious error - they have noted William Hardin's father first as Maj. John (which was correct) but it was marked out and Martin Hardin written in with the note that Maj. John was Martin's brother. They were brothers, but John was William's father, not Martin - Martin Hardin had no son named William. According to the application Moses was b. 1820, d. 1885 and his wife Nancy Jolly was b. 1825, d. 1895 - they did marry Jun 17, 1842.

Moses Biddle HARDIN and Nancy JOLLY were married on 17 June 1842.116 Nancy JOLLY was born in 1819 in Kentucky.116 She died in 1895 at the age of 76.

Was she Nancy Jolly? A newspaper article in the Breckenridge News, published at Cloverport, 22 Jul 1914, gives her that surname but there are errors in the article. I did find the marriage record and that name is correct.
