* Notes:

 

The coming of William Hardee Sr. to Horry Co. South Carolina has been difficult to trace, but a few things are clear, one that he came about 1805,and after the census of 1800.

 

He is not listed in the 1800 Horry Co. census, but he is listed in the 1810 Horry Co. census.

 

In 1821 he applied for a Revolutionary War pension, the following is from Abstracts Of Revolutionary War Files, page 1514 . (" William, Nancy, W9054, NC Line applied 4, April 1821 Horry District SC aged 65, soldier mentions Joseph Hardee, in 1821 had a wife aged 64, widow applied 6, Jan. 1844 Horry District SC aged 88 on 2 May 1843 soldier, & widow had married 2 April 1776 in Pitt Co. NC, and in 1805 moved to Horry District SC, soldier died 18 August 1827, soldier brother Andrew was aged 67 in 1844 a resident of Horry District SC, and stated his brother, and wife's oldest child was his age.") As of this writing I have not tied William Sr. to a ancestor in Pitt Co. NC. In the census of 1810 in the household of William Sr. there is listed 2 males 10 to 16 yrs. belive these to be Seth S. and William Jr. 2 males 16 to 26 yrs. belive these to be Calvin, and John Jr. one male over 45 yrs. this would be William Sr. there is one female under 10 yrs. 2 females 16 to 26 yrs. one female over 45 yrs. this would be wife Nancy. (some of the younger Children my be Childers of on of Williams`s sons and his wife, as Nancy would be past child bearing age). There must have been more children born to William, and Nancy before they came to Horry Co. some may have died others may have married, and stayed in Pitt Co. NC. William Sr. in the 1810 census is living in the Bayboro section of Horry Co. On 11/28/1808 William Sr. received a land grant for 400 acre on Simpson Creek on NW side of Waccamaw River. Surveyed 11/28/1808 date entered 12/20/1808. This land bd. by John Parker, Andrew Hardee, and Thomas Ready. Surveyed by Thomas Fearwell. Note: sent by Gen. R. Conway. See publication No. 3 Waccamaw Records. Plat book A, B, C, 1802 - 1831.

 

There are several good books on the Hardy/Hardee`s one (The Hardee`s Of Horry Co. SC. ) by B. Ottis Prince. another (The Eastern North Carolina Hardy - Hardee Family In The South and Southwest. ) by David L. Hardee. the authors, and myself in our research in some cases do not reach the same conclusion. I will leave it to the reader to make there own conclusions. More information from Revolutionary War Pension National Archives, abstracted by Roger Kammerer. (Published in the Pitt County Genealogical Quarterly, Volume II, No 1) Affidavits below:

Ed,

 

A year or so ago, a cousin of mine and I where trying to link the Hardees of

 

Pitt County to those Hardees from the Columbus County, NC and Horry County,

 

SC. I remember that we found a few links in the family. One person in

 

particular was William Hardee, born in Pitt County date unknown, son of

 

William Andrew and Everilla Woodhouse, husband of Nancy Stocks. He and Nancy

 

married in 1776 and He died in Horry County, SC in 1827. I'll have to go over

 

my notes and see what else I can find.
