Hi,
I descend from Charles Hardy b 7 Apr 1772 and his first wife Sally Jordan Green b 25 Oct 1783 d. 4 Apr 1862. He was married to her before Dorothy (Dolley) Bruce. I would love to compare notes. Sally and Charles had 13 children that I am aware of. Henry Green Hardy was their oldest son and my gg grandfather. HIs son Jeremiah left VA and moved to the gold mining country, Amador, CA.

My husband is a descendant of William Hardy and Mary through their son, Thomas Vincent the brother of Covington. Have you done very much research on this Hardy line?
