I am researching family genealogies for the following lines:....Hardy (NC>GA)
My 3rd Great Grandfather was Whitmill Hardy. He was a veteren of the War of 1812 from Edgecombe County, North Carolina. He won a draw out of the 4th Georgia Land Lottery in 1821 for Section 237 of present day Southern Bibb County, Georgia. I need any information to help me determine his parents. He married 2nd a Sidney (Collins?) also born in North Carolina. His children were:
Thomas C. Hardy (b. abt 1811)
Wilson C. Hardy (b. abt 1820)
William Wesly Hardy (b. abt 1822)
Harriett A. J. Hardy (b. abt 1825)
Martha Ann Hardy (b. abt 1826)
Seaborn C. Hardy (b. abt 1827)
George W. Hardy (b. abt 1832)
Robert C. Hardy (b abt 1837)
Whitmill's also mentions in his will a daughter Eliz Proctor by his first wife. Whitmill died April 1841. I believe he was born around 1786. On the 1850 Bibb County, Georgia census there is a John Hardy, age 85 living with Thomas Hardy (Whitmill's oldest son).
I am also needing help finding the parents of my great grandfather, John Dyer. John Dyer was born in Georgia abt 1830. He married Missouri Ann Rebecker Burnett on April 1, 1852 in Bibb County, Georgia. Missouri was the daughter of Jerimiah Burnett and Susannah Lipsey. John was living and working on the Burnett farm in 1850. His brother, William Scott Dyer was a CSA soldier killed December 13, 1861 in the small battle of Camp Allegheny in Pocahonta County, (now) West Virginia.
I will be glad to share any information I have on any families.
