In Reply to: Hardinstown, where is it? Who founded it by Lissa Garman of 516

Hi. I was just in Lawrenceburg, Dearborn County, Indiana for a few days doing family research. Hardinstown was / is located about 2 miles east of Lawrenceburg along highway 50, where the interstate ramp is located. I don't know off hand its origins but I am sure info is readily available. The Lawrenceburg Public Library and the Dearborn County Historical Society both have excellent resources. If your local library has a genealogy section, it might have the History of Dearborn County (one from around 1895, another from around 1910) - my public library in Miami, Florida had one of them. It is also available thru inter library loan. My family roots are in Hardinstown and mt g-g-grandfather's house is still there, beautifully restored. The Lawrenceburg Press - on microfilm - has a local Hardinsburg section in each paper going back to the mid 100's. I've found lots of precious little nuggets about my family going thru those pages! Happy hunting!
