Samuel Hardesty


Name: Benjamin Franklin /Hardesty/[1]

Elizabeth married Benjamin Franklin Hardesty (born around 1735), son of William Hardesty and Priscilla Lawrence about 1765 in Calvert County, Maryland.


Their first child Henry was born in Maryland and he was most probably followed by Elizabeth, Rebecca and Thomas.

At some point they must have moved to Virginia because some of the children appear to have been born there - Samantha in about 1773, Benjamin in about 1776, William in 1777, Kinzea in 1779 and Samuel about 1782. According to some records Elizabeth and Benjamin may have had another child while living in Virginia.
