Henry HARDIN and Rachel BIDDLE were married on 1 October 1796 in Hardin County, Kentucky.18 Rachel BIDDLE2 was born in 1776 in New York.116 She died after 1855 at the age of 79.

Rachel was probably the widow, Rachel Walker, when she married Henry.

An SAR application from 1913 gives her name as Rachel Biddle Walker - no date of birth or death.
A FindAGrave memorial page says she died in 1850 - she is in the Census and was still living in 1855 when Henry wrote his will - so she died sometime after then.

Henry HARDIN and Rachel BIDDLE had the following children:



Sarah D. "Sallie" HARDIN.



Mahuldah HARDIN.






Elijah HARDIN.



Moses Biddle HARDIN.



Rachel HARDIN.



Nancy HARDIN112,117 was born (date unknown).

Married name may also have been Hardin.
