This research project will focus initially on three of the early families that settled in the Hart County Kentucky area in the early 1800s: Wright, Wilson, and Hodges. The Wilson and Hodges families may have been allied previously in Virginia. It's not yet known if the Wright families were also allied with them there, or if their association started after they settled in Hardin/Hart County.

Very important: All three of these surnames are very common, and it's likely / possible that there are multiple unrelated lines with each surname. Don't assume without evidence that people sharing these surnames are related on that line.

The primary goal of the project is to untangle conflicting information about these lines and try to determine which ones share common ancestors.

Hart County, Kentucky was formed in 1819 from sections of Hardin and Barren counties. Hardin County had been established in 1792 from sections of Nelson County, while Barren County was formed in 1798 from areas of Warren and Green counties. This research project will focus primarily on the areas of Hart County that originated from Hardin County.

Unfortunately, many early Hardin County records were destroyed in courthouse fires in 1864 and again in 1932. Similarly, early Hart County records were destroyed in a courthouse fire in 1928. This leaves researchers struggling to determine accurate genealogy lines. We hope to improve at least some information with this research.

Initial Research Areas

Fellow researchers are welcome to add other focus areas. Please include a link to your profile if you're working on one of them. We'll start with these [under construction]:

These should eventually be split into their own Free Spaces, but we'll work on them here for now.

Allied Family Marriages

Please document allied family intermarriages here. Over time, we need to ensure that all of them have profiles on WikiTree.
