    Two sons of Mark Hardin and Mary Hogue of Fauquier Co., VA. were Major John Hardin and his brother Martin Hardin. These two migrated to Frederick Co. VA in 1765. Major John Hardin was the father of Capt. William Hardin and Benjamin Hardin, Majo r John was killed by Indians later at Hardin's Fort, KY in 1789. The other son Martin Hardin settled near Springfield, Washington Co., KY with his son Col. John Hardin who was also killed by Indian treachery in Ohio in 1792. Both Col. John Hard in and Capt. William Hardin, first cousins, owned land in Springhill Twp. Fayette Co, PA before coming to K Y.
    Hardin Co., KY was named in honor of Col. John Hardin.

    Captain William Hardin, the founder of Hardin's Fort, (later to become Hardinsburg, Breckinridge Co., KY). Capt. William Hardin was the son of the above-mentioned Maj. John Hardin and Catherine Marr. He was born in Frederick Co., VA in 1747 an d died in Hardinsburg, Breckinridge Co., KY on Sept. 21, 1820. He is buried there in the cemetery at the old fort.
    Capt. William Hardin came down the Ohio River on a flatboat and arrived at the Falls of the Ohio in 1780. William Hardin, Jack Hardin, and others were chasing a band of Indians and explored the area o f current-day Hardinsburg and decided to set tle there.
    The first land warrant in the area was issued by the state of VA to Benjamin Hardin in 1783; 800 acres on Hardin Creek, the survey was dated Dec. 1782. As stated earlier, Benjamin Hardin was Capt. Wil liam Hardin's brother.
    Other land warrants to the Hardin family were as follows:
    December 1, 1785, William Hardin -- 3,297 acres on Hardin's Creek.
    December 1, 1785, Daniel Hardin -- 400 acres on Beech Fork,
    December 1, 1785, John Hardin -- 400 acres South Fork of Hardin's Creek.
    April 21, 1792, Mark Hardin --1,500 acres Long Lick Creek
    April 21, 1792, Nathan Hardin -- 1,000 acres on Long Lick Creek.
    On June 26, 1786, Wiliam purchased 400 acres of his brother's original 800 acre plot including Hardin's Fort and established what is now Hardinsburg, KY. Among early properties that Capt. Hardin acqui red were two located on Sugar Tree Run (29 7 acres) and Sinking Creek (1,000 acres) both from the state of VA. By 1794, Capt. William Hardin owned a total of 9, 127 acres in what was then Hardin Co. (s till part of VA).
    Captain William Hardin, also known as Big Bill, the Indian fighter, died at Hardinsburg, Ky on September 20, 1820. He is said to have been buried at the cemetery in the old Hardin's Fort. He had marri ed twice. First to Winifred Holzclaw, in 176 8 in Hampshire Co., VA. They had eight children. Winifred died in 1807 and was buried at Hardin's Fort Cemetery. He married second Susannah McGhee in Brecki nridge Co. KY, on July 9, 1808.
    In addition to his own children, Capt. Hardin also reared a nephew and neice, Daniel Hardin and his younger sister, Mary (Polly). They were the children of his younger brother, Jesse Hardin and wife Margaret Huston. Perhaps their parents were k illed by Indians. Mary (Polly) Hardin married Benjamin Huff on April 28, 1789 in Nelson Co., KY. Daniel Hardin married Alice Jolly, daughter of Nelson Joll y Sr. and Mary Graham, on August 19, 1790. These two young couples purchased land from Ca pt. Hardin and were in the area in 1796. The Daniel Hardin family lived out their lives in Breckinridge Co., Ky and have many descendants there yet.
