Elizabeth, I have never been positive that Carroll was a son of Hardy, even tho it was I who looked at the land settlement. I did not understand it, as it was worded as if there were 2 families. And........this may be correct as I believe Hardy was married at least twice. Tyler had a daughter that is unaccounted for, (gone by 1850 census), for a long time I thought that it was Carroll and they had made a mistake on the gender. It did happen in one census. He is always near Tyler on the census. I do not have a copy, wish I did, I had to take notes as the microfilm reader in Perry Co. does not have a printer. I would liked to have studied it in detail. An older man who just died in Lewis Co. was a descendent of Carrol and he believed that he was son of Hardy. I know several people who are Carrolls descendents, including Debbie Green. We have met in Perry Co. at least twice for lunch and researching. I am planning on going to the Perry Co. library soon on another matter and plan to once again look at that settlement. I will try and take better notes. I have learned more since I wrote that little book.
We have a site called Hardy O'guin, but no one talks anymore so I don't bother much. Will be glad to invite you so you can meet other descendents of Carroll.
I focus mostly on Tyler's descendents. Have not been able to find much on Hardy in NC. It is my gut feeling that Hardy may have been the first generation in US. There were several other Tiler, Tiller and Tylers around. They were probably related and it was probably a family name. My family was adamant on using the O' before the Guin. (It is a hard name to search for, you would not believe some of the spellings I have found).
Think you can retrieve my e-mail from this site. Let me hear. jm
