Ezra C. Hardin

Ezra C. Hardin was born March 30, 1799 to Richard and Rachel Hardin in Frederick, MD.  He died November 27, 1875 in Indianapolis, IN.  He and his wife, Priscilla, are both buried at Crown Hill Cemetery in Indianapolis and have the same headstone.

I believe that Ezra was a Methodist Minister, though I have no proof.  My reason for thinking this is that there were either 4 or 5 generations of Methodist Ministers.  The last would have been my great-grandfather, Floyd Hardin.  (Ezra was Floyd’s great-grandfather.)

Ezra was married to Priscilla Rainey on November 20, 1823 in West Union, OH.  Children of Ezra ad Priscilla are:

Franklin Allen Hardin
Albert Gallatin Hardin
James Samuel Hardin

  1. Hello, I’m also descended from Ezra Hardin, through his son Richard E. Hardin that is not listed in your list of his children above. Here is a link to some info I’ve been working on at WikiTree.com. Thank you so much for the additional family info you’ve supplied. My sources for Richard E. Hardin (my gg-grandfather) being in this family are documented on the site. Always happy to connect with more cousins 🙂

    1. Good to connect with you, Brenda. I have. Sister maned Brenda also. I haven’t put a copy of it up here yet, but I’ve come across a handwritten letter which tells about Richard Hardin (the eldest) coming over from England to fight with the Continental line. It also mentions Siamese twins. I think I have it on ancestry.com under my tree. Here’s the link to it http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/17528397/family?fpid=5017080225

      1. Hello again. Sorry it’s been quite a while since I was last here on your site. I’m working on my (our) Hardin family again and I would love to see the letter you mentioned above. However, I am not signed up with ancestry.com… or any pay sites. Would it be possible to email me a copy of the letter? My email is brendaj1964@gmail.com Also, did you ever hear back from the guy in Indianapolis that said he had Richard Hardin’s journal? Would love to hear that story. Do you know if he’s posted it online anywhere? Thanks again so much. Your cousin, Brenda Smith

      2. Hi Brenda, I just came across this comment on my site about the Hardins. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you. I’ll email you a copy of the letter. I recently talked with the guy in IN about the journal. He said he hasn’t done anything with it yet, it’s been sitting in a box and that he’s had other priorities. He told me if anything changes he will let me know.
