  • Notes 
    • Family legend has it that the Hardestys settled the first cabin in Indiana. James is probably the son of James Hardesty (b. 1800). His grandfather was Joshua Hardesty (b. about 1761, in PA, d. after 1850) who was living with his sons in Lees Creek, Wayne Twp., Clinton Co. Ohio in 1850. There may have been more children to James and Cyrena - Rose Hardesty? Many of the Hardesty's are buried in New Vienna, Ohio.

      In 1860 the family is near Lees Creek, Clinton Co., Ohio.

      Research: Chris Taylor has a death date of 3 July 1857 for James but he appears in the 1860 census:

      There is another Hardesty family living next door - James (age 59, VA) with five children born in Ohio under age 20 (one of whom is a James) and a William Hardesty (age 63, MD) According to a FindAGrave memorial for the elder James (age 59) below had two sons named James from two different marriages.
