George W. and Clementine Hardin Family Bible

Records from a Bible that passed from Clementine Hardin to George Frank Hardin, to Cathrine Hardin Morgan, to Travis Hardin. Originally transcribed by Frank Moore,  Rainbow City, Alabama, in 1998.
Editorial comments by Travis Hardin and Frank Moore are in [brackets]
December 2010: A looseleaf sheet of names from the original bible was rediscovered. Entries in RED are from that sheet, which is mainly a copy of the names in the bible with some later births added. The additions were either by Clementine Hardin or her daughter Viola Hardin, with some unrecognized handwriting.
