Notes

   * John Hardin moved about 1740 to Fredrick Co, VA; built the first stone courthouse in Winchester; served as a Captain of Militia in the French and Indian War; Sheriff of Fredrick Co; bought land in Hampshire Co, VA. in 1762 and moved there.   He was a captain and a major in the border campaigns of the American Revolution; reported the death of Major Crawford at Fort Pitt in 1782 to the Virginia authorities; one of the first justices of Monongalia County.  One account states that he went to Pennsylvania about 1768 and died in Westmorland Co., PA before 1780, the year William went to Kentucky. Another account indicates he went to Nelson county, Kentucky in 1786, lived with William in Hardin's Fort, and was killed by Indians or renegade whites on the Brandenburg Road near Hardinsburg.  Yet another version says he lived alone in a cabin east of Hardin's Station which had been established in 1780 by his son, Captain William Hardin and was killed by Indians on the Brandenburg Road about a mile from Hardinsburg, KY.
         In 1785 and 1786 two grants for 400 acres each were made to him in Jefferson Co., KY on Hardin's Creek, near the land of his son, William.

Major John Hardin had a long and notable career. He moved about 1741 to Frederick County, Virginia. Various deeds (many also signed by his wife Catherine) show that he was living in Frederick County as late as 1762, on Patterson Creek in Hampshire County in 1764 and 1769, and in Pennsylvania by 1771. He helped organize Frederick County, built the first stone courthouse there, served as sheriff, and as a presiding Justice. He was Lt. and Capt. in the Frederick County militia, serving in the French and Indian Wars.

When George Washington, as commander of the Virginia militia issued a call in 1754, a contingent from Frederick County, led by John Hardin, responded. Bored by incactivity they became a little boisterous and some were confined. Declaring this should not happen to free men they tore the jail down and went home. Evidently matters were reconciled, as they seem to have been in the fighting in pa. 1754-1758. Thus when the area was opened for claims in 1769, they were able to take quick advantage. John Hardin was a Justice in "Monongahela" County, resided in what is now Springhill Township, Fayette County, Pa. His title of Major evidently was acquired in the border skirmishes of the Revolution. He also built boats and equipped militia expeditions. He moved to Kentucky by 1785, where he was on a Nelson Co. tithable list.

The will of John Hardin of Nelson Couty, Ky. (which at the time included what is now Marion Co.) was dated 4 June 1788, proved 13 October 1789. It named sons John, Mark, William, and Benjamin; daughters Abigale Linch (sic), Mary Thomas, Catharin Burnett, Elizabeth Martin, and Susanna Walker; Polly Hardin "daughter of Margret Heely (Huly?) that was"; grandson Henry Hardin, son of john Hardin; and granddaughters Katy Thomas and Cassandra Hardin. Execs. William Hardin and Benjamin Hardin; Wits. Lewis Thomas, Philip Davis, and Mary Thomas.

All children listed in family group (not in order of birth), except Jesse, were named in the will.
