are you related to Owen Hardy-5797 and Sarah Hibbert-472?

I have questions about them myself... some people say they are the parents of William Benton Hardy-2283, but other people say his parents are Freeman Hardy-2370 Jr and Marie Keziah Lanier-500? But so far, I've been unable to find proof either way.

Greetings and thank you for responding. I am descended from William Hardy, Lunenburg, Va., but not in the line of Owen.  I am working on a SAR application for a friend, who descends from Owen.  Owen married Sarah Hibbert, C. 1805 in Henry Co., VA.  I searched on for Sarah Hibbert and in Virginia, Select Marriages, 1785-1940, it lists her father as Charles Hibbert and her spouse as Owen Hardy.    thank you,  Mike
William Benton Hardy is my 2nd great grandfather. I'm just not sure who his parents are.

I find several William Hardy's from Lunenburg county, Virginia... which one do you descend from?

Owen Hardy, Virginia Marriages, 1785-1940

Owen Hardy married Sarah Hibbert 19 Nov 1805 at Henry, Virginia. Sarah's father is Charles Hibbert.

Again, thank you.  Need hard proof of Owen's parents.  Mike

where do you see that Sarah's father was Charles?

So far, none of the Virginia Marriage records that I've found show that.

I did find a Baptism record for a Sarah Hibbert whose parents are Charles and Lydia, but the dates and places don't match: 16 Sep 1849 Wiltshire, England

Frank, I got your private email, but there was no link to the source.

I found it:

 I searched on for Sarah Hibbert and in 'Virginia, Select Marriages, 1785-1940,' it lists her father as Charles Hibbert and her spouse as Owen Hardy.    thank you,  Mike

yep, found that one too, now. thanks.
