Hargrove/Hargrave/Hartgrave, Mercer, Boyle & Other KY Counties

Searching for any information about descendants of a Joseph Hargrove who married a Caty Gray in Prince Edward Co., VA 22 Dec. 1793, she being the daughter of Charles Gray. They appeared in Mercer County, Kentucky 1810 census showing his age between 25 to 45, two sons under age 10, three sons 10-16 yrs of age, one son between 16-26 years of age; His wife is aged 26-45, one daughter 10-16. I have not found them in subsequent census records for Mercer Co., Ky. Either they died or moved on.

There is a Zachariah Hargrove who is listed in the Mercer Co., KY 1820 census who first married a Nancy Williams on9 May 1819 in Mercer Co., KY. She must have died or something happened as he later married Lucy Gray on 24 Aug. 1842. I do not know if there are any children from this second marriage. From his first marriage to Nancy Williams, they had a daughter named Emaline Hargrove born 10 July 1821 & died 3 Jun 1864. She married a James Allen Stewart on 10 Jan 1842.

I also found A William B. Hargrove who married a Nancy Lee Crain on 16 Oct. 1833 in Mercer Co., Kentucky and they had a daughter named Theodotia Jane Hargrove who married a Thomas McGinnis on 7 Aug 1850 in Boyle Co., Kentucky.

Their may have been other children born to Zachariah Hartgrove and to William B. Hartgove for which I do not know.

I have found in the cemetery records for Boyle Co., Ky. a listing of the following Hardgrove / Hargrove listings:

Charles K. Hardgrove Born 1886 died 1949
Ellen Donnley Hardgrove born 1862 died 1924
Helen Pollard Hardgrove born 20 Dec 1919 died 10 Mar 1979
I. M. Hardgrove born 1852 died 1928
Isaac M. Hardgrove born died 8 July 1928 age 76
Lettie M. Hardrove born 1894 died 1964
Stuart Hargrove born died 29 Aug 1956
Edgar Hardgrove born 1884 died 1968
Maud Hardgrove born 1891 died 1973
Wilbur L. Hardgrove born 1923 died
Juanita R. Hardgrove born 1934 died

I also find where a Mary Hartgrove, daughter of William Hartgrove married a John McCarty 18 July 1820 Washington Co., Kentucky.

I'm seeking information on the above individuals and most especially the Caty Gray that married the Joseph Hargrove in Prince Edward Co., VA and then moved to Mercer Co., Kentucky. I would like to discover the names of their children and what became of Joseph & Caty and their descendants. Any help or info would be appreciated. You can also email me at
