The author invites corrections and new family history -- anything that makes the story more accurate and interesting. I would be glad to add family histories on living relatives (and their families) born before 1975 if relatives will write them and send them to me with photos or links.

Recent reconsiderations and changes in thinking

1. After reconsideration, John Hardin was born 1733 and was the youngest son of Samuel Hardin. John was in gestation when his father's 1732 will left a legacy to be divided between son William and the baby if it was a boy. There were no boy children between them included in the legacy.

1. That John Hardin of Chatham County whose wife was named Sarah did not migrate to Pendleton District with his son Gabriel. The John Hardin who migrated to Pendleton District was married to Ann and was the eldest son  or young brother of Gabriel. That young John was born c.1770  and had a wife and one young daughter in 1790.  He left Pendleton around 1800. This explanation is speculative.

2. John Hardin of Montgomery County NC is possibly a son of John Hardin (1733). His seeming son Moses has I-M253 DNA. His seeming daughterTemperance married a neighboring Lewis Bolin. His seeming son Gabriel was the witness.
