Hardy Family


This page last updated April 30, 2006.


The information here begins with Cornelius Marion Hardy. His parents and ancestors are uncertain to me at this time. The reason for this is because his death certificate states his father's name was William and his mother's name was Jenny Lou Lane, both born in Georgia, as was Cornelius. However, it is my suspicion that his father was indeed William Hardy, but that his mother's name was Maria(h) Susan Duncan. There are several Hardy family trees on the internet that state this, as are there census records to support this, but I have not seen any other factual information to support that idea. Cornelius states in his Civil War pension application that he was from Jasper County, GA. Both William P. Hardy and Maria Susan Duncan lived in Jasper County, GA. Cornelius' children were born in GA according to census records and their death certificates, and his wife, Louisa Jane Lane was also from GA. In fact, one of Cornelius' sons, George E. Hardy's death certificate states he was born in Jasper County, GA. However I have found no records in GA that prove who his parents were; no birth records, Bible records, marriage records or Wills. Until I find factual documentation to support this thought, I will not include any of that information here. What you will find here, though, is the information I have on Cornelius and his descendants. If you know of any records that I could gain access to that support my theory of who Cornelius' parents and ancestors were I would very much like to know that.
