Researching name - was my grandmother's (Bessie C. Hardenbrook) husband. Her mother was Agnes Ermina Blair of Plainsville, Ohio. They settled in MI. Bessie was born in New Richmond, MI June 9, 1884 and married by grandfather (Millard Alfred Steele) who was born in Forest City, MO on Aapril 5, 1881. Am very interested in finding a Native American connection.

I have all the information that you may need. Agnes Blair Hardenbrook was my grandmother Mary Hardenbrook's mother. My name is Mary Agnes, after both ladies. Agnes Blair's parents were William Issac Blair and Lodora Perkins. Lodora's brother married a Native American in Ohio. Agnes Blair Hardenbrook had a brother Robert Harry Blair, and he married his first cousin in Racine, Wisconsin, daughter of Lodora's brother ( I will have to look up his name. I do have all of that) They couldn't get married in Michigan because of their relationship. I have pictures, data, and most information you would need about the family. My mother was Alice Gray Ervin. my E-mail is Scholten@prodigy.net. I know of other links to Hardenbrooks too.

Hi Mary,
Are you looking for Frances/Francis Hardenbrook who married Nancy Kelly in Mt. Gilead, OH? They married in 1823 and subsequently moved to IL. Nancy died in 1864 and Frances died in the 1880's. They had 13 children, one of whom (Allan) was my GGGrandfather.

My Francis Marian Hardenbrook, was from St. Joseph, Mich. and served in the Civil War; His father was Samuel Hardenbrook from Ohio, moved into Michigan and ran a saw mill and lumber company. Interesting the repeat of Francis so often in this family. Do you have a Samuel from Ohio,perhaps a brother of your Francis Hardenbrook?

Thanks,
Mary

Hi Mary,
Per the LDS website, Lodwick Hardenbrook and Elizabeth Waldron had 11 children:
Jerome b. 15 Apr 1781 NJ
John b. 21 Sep 1783 NJ
Ralph "Rafe" b. 14 Apr 1787 NJ
Lydia b. 9 Jan 1789 VA d. 10 Jul 1861(?) OH
Lewis b. 2 Jan 1792 VA d. 10 Jul 1861 IL
Samuel b. 8 Feb 1794 VA
Magdalene b. 19 Feb 1796 VA
Abraham b. 18 May 1798 VA
Francis/Frances b. 4 Dec 1799 VA d. IA
Elizabeth b. 15 Apr 1804 OH
William b. 29 Aug 1808 OH d. 27 Dec 1859 IL

Lodwick was granted land in the vicinity of Mt. Gilead, OH in payment for his service in a NJ regiment in the Am. Rev War. He had homesteaded there fairly early and there are several mentions of him and his sons in the History of Ohio which you can find at www.heritagequest.com.
Given that West Virginia wasn't created until the 1860's the reference to Brooke, VA where Samuel & Francis were born is most likely Brooke County, WV on the Ohio River. So this indicates a migration from Somerset, NJ in 1787-1788 to Brooke County on the Ohio. Then from there they moved the Mt. Gilead, OH area. Mt. Gilead is north of Columbus--I'm guessing 40-50 miles.
I've found a brother of Allan Hardenbrook's, Hanibal Hardenbrook, who is in Bowling Green, Pettis Co, MO in the 1870 census.
If your Francis Marian Hardenbrook served in the CW, the dates would make sense that he's the son of a brother of my Frances. If your Samuel was born in 1794 in VA, he would have been 5 years older than my Frances. It would also have made him a first cousin of my GGGrandfather, Allan Hardenbrook who was born in 1831.
How are you related to FMH? Does that make us cousins?

Cheers,
Nancy

OOPS!

Thank you so very much. I have tried to make the connection to Lodwick for sometime. All my research led to that place. I will check out all dates first, but it does look like the right family tree and the right area.

Will let you know, and thanks again.
Mary

Hey Cousin Mary!!

If you use the search feature at heritagepursuit.com (go into one of the counties--like Morrow where Mt. Gilead is) there are a number of references to the Hardenbrook boys and to Samuel Hardenbrook. Don't remember if there's marriage data there. If you look for every occurance of the name, you come across a lot of info that I haven't found elsewhere. Also, be sure to check for misspellings of Hardenbrook....the history is not consistant, even in the same paragraph sometimes.
Happy Hunting!!
Nancy
