I have a Ritchie Co. Hardbarger connection also. My Gr. Gr. Grparents were JosephB. Tustin and Mary J Blankenship. They had a daughter , Mary who died young and the had her 2 boys,
Their names were Erwin B. and John B.
In the 1900 Census for Grant District, Ritchie Co. their ages were 6 and 3 Erwin was born May 1894 and John was born Jan. 1897, both in WVa.
I wonder if we connect anywhere? any information greatly appreciated.
