These are the family names I am researching.

I have traced my husband's Hardy line as follows:

James Willis Hardy, Jr.
Born 23 March 1921, Hiram
Married 27December 1941 to Frances Virginia Ahern
Died 21 Aug 1989, Louisville, Ky.

James Willis Hardy
Born 25 February 1898, Hiram, Ga.
Married 1920 to Leila Foster who died in 1933
Died 02 September 1950, Hiram, Ga.

Charles T. Hardy
Born 1869 in Georgia
Married 1892 in Paulding County, Ga. to Lou Ella Denson
Died 04 September 1940, Paulding County, Ga.

T. J. Hardy
Born 1845, Georgia
Wife Louisa (Kennedy?)
They are shown in the 1880 census as follows:

T. J. Hardee - 35
Louisa (wife) - 36
Fanny -daughter - 13
Charley -son- 11
John-son 9

Spelling of the name varies from census to census & I've found them under Harde, Harde, Hardey, as well as Hardy.

I would like to know the parents & place of birth of T. J.
I have found a Thomas Hardy in the 1870 census in California in Paulding County & in Dallas, Paulding County in the 1860 census listed as T. Hardy. Some of the family names match, so I'm pretty sure they are the same family but not certain that they are the family of my T. J. There seem to be several lines of Hardys with very similar names, so it's very confusing.

Would love to hear from anyone else who may be researching these families. Thanks!
