Smith Family

I.     Smith Lineage - Decent from Col. John Hardee
     The lineage through the Smith familey leading back to Col. John Hardee appears to be entirely correct as you have stated it. I have endeavored to fill in a few blanks and provide documentary evidence for the lineage.  At the present I have not provided copies of all the documents cited, as it is expensive to copy from microfilm.  However, the references are given should hyou need any of these documents.
     JANE ELIZA SMITH (1841-1922) married on 13 March. 1862 John Bryant Hardee.  It appears that no further proof is needed from this point forward.  However, I note that the death certificate of Jane Eliza Hardee (Vol 738 P 203) at the Archives states that she was a daughter of John Stanley Smith and Sallie Daniels, as we also know from other records.
     JOHN STANLEY SMITH was born on 13 Jan 1812, according to the Bible record, and his parentage is confirmed in the deeds (see below)  He married first on 24 March 1835 Sally Daniel, the date again given by the Bible record. It appears however that the Bible record of John's children is not complete. 
     I located John on the 1850 and 1860 censuses of Pitt (copies enclosed), which show him with a large estate and confirm his and Jane's birthdates.  Sally is said to have died about 1870, and John then remarried.  The Pitt Co. Marriage Register (Vol I) shows that Jno. S. Smith, son of David Smith and Elizabeth Smith, and Frances Ringold, daughter of Joseph Ringold, were married at the residence of Joseph Ringold on 9 Feb 1871 by W. A. Ross. No license survives, but the entry in the register [rpvodes additional confirmattion of John's parentage.
     The Pitt deeds do not directly prove Jane's marriage to John Hardee.  However, we do find that on 10 Feb 1867 J. S. Smith sold for $50.00 to John B. Hardee 60 acres on the south side of Tar River and north side of the old Plank Road, joining J. S. Smith, Lucy Patrick, and Allen Avery, "Begining at the road at my Gin House".
     John is said to have died in 1873, but no probate record is found in Pitt Co.  There turns out to be a good reason for the absence of such a record.  In the Pitt deeds we find that on 4 Sept 1873 John S. Smith and wife Fannie made a gift for parental love and affection to John L. Smith and Ada C. Smith of all the land on which said John S. Smith resided, being on the south side of Tar River on the old plank road, "excepting a life estate for said John S. Smith", and also coveying all personal property "except the following viz Two Thougand dollars in money...and...securities, paid by said John S. Smith, to said Fannie Smith, for herself and child, and also except all...personalty...the said Fannie Smith may have carried with her to said John S. Smith on becoming his wife" (WW Page 321). This deed of gift was basically equivalent to a will.
     Using the census and the records you provided we can list the children of John S. Smith as follows.  By first wife, Sally Daniel:
     1.  William Henry, born 17 Mar 1838, died 18 Mar 1881
     2.  Margaret Ann Elizabeth, 8 Feb 1841 - 20 Feb 1874
     3.  Jane Eliza  2 Feb 1844 - 23 Dec 1922 married John Bryant Hardee
     4,  James Thomas  7 Aug 1846 -11 Aug 1918
     5.  Thomas Jefferson  listed in your notes, but does not appear on the census.  Perhaps died in infancy.
     6.  Francis Marion born ca 1849
     7.  John L. (or A.) born ca 1853/4
     8.  Ada C. born ca 1858/59 marr. D. D. Haskett
Children by Second wife, Frances Ringold
     1.  Tersie Mordenia died young
     2.  David Stanley born 26 Feb 1873 age confirmed by the 1900 census which lists him in Greenville (E. D. 94, sheet 26 line 32)
     John Stanley was the son of: David Smith, Jr. who was probably born in the early 1770's.  He first appears in the Pitt deeds on 22 March 1795 when David Smith, Sr. sold for 160 pds to David Smith, Jr. a negro, Simon (Book N Page 254)  Davids parentage is shown by the wills of both his father David Smith, Sr. and grandfather Col. John Hadee, but unfortunately both of these are out of official custody, and Col. Hardee's will survives only in abstract, however, the parentage of David Jr. is confirmed by deeds made after the death of his youngest brother: (Boo Q Page 403)  Know by the presents that I Sally Smith have sold unto my brother David Smith all my right title claim interest & demand in and to all the lands and plantations given by father David Smith, in his last will and testament to his son John Hardee equal undivided eleventh share..the 20 April 1807.  Witness:  Henry Smith
     A similar deed was made from Henry Smith to his brother David Smith on 21 April 1807 (Book Q Page 404).
     The Bible record record states that David married on 14 May 1809 Elizabeth Smith (WBK Note:  Daughter of Oliver Smith) This marriage is confirmed, with a slight discrepancy in date, by an entry in the Raleigh Register, issue of 1 June 1809:  Married on the 7th inst..David Smith, Esq. of  Pitt County, to Miss Smith, dau. of the late Oliver Smith, of Greenville.
     David Smith apparently died in late 1817 (rather than 1818) A partially torn obituary appears in the Raleigh Register issue of 28 Nov 1817 (I have interpolated the blanks in square brackets): Died, a few days since in Pitt County, David Smith, an old and respected inhabitant of that county,
     David did not leave a will, and John Mooring was appointed to administer his estate at the Pitt Co. Court of Pleas and quarter session of February 1818.  This is shown by some debt proceedings against his estate preserved in the estate papers of Craven Co. (see copies enclosed) We also find the following notice in the North Carolina Star (Raleigh) issueof 13 Feb 1818:  Notice is hereby given that David Smith, late of the County of Pitt is dead and that administration upon his estate has been granted to the subscriber at February Session of Pitt County Court...John Mooring, Adm. Greenville Feb 10, 1818.
Further Notice: On Thursday the 5th day of March next at the Court House in Greenville, will be exposed to public sale...between 50 and 60 valuable Negros.
     David Smith, Jr. seems to have left a very large estate, but also extensive debts.  The procedings in Craven Co. concerned a note given by David to pay James McKinley $550.00 dated 13 June 1817.  This resulted in an order for the sale of his lands, noting that these had "descended to William Smith, John S. Smith, Elizabeth Smith and Rufus Smith infants by Sauel Simpson, guardian..Simpson the guardian, lived in Craven, which may be why the papers are preserved there.  To settle this and other debts the Sheriff sold off David's lands in a series of deeds over the next ten years.  At least 20 such deeds were noted from the Pitt deed index  (AA Page 230, AA Page 237, AA Page 261, AA Page 267, AA Page 302, AA Page 330, AA Page 345, AA Page 420, BB Page 28, BB Page 100, BB Page 320, BB Page 398, CC Page 15, CC Page 207, CC Page 261, CC Page 538, DD Page 12, DD Page 182, DD Page 411) David's father did not leave him land in his will, but some of this landwas likely inherited both from David's yunger brother and from his grandfather, Col. John Hardee.  A quick survey of these deeds did not reveal such a statement of inheritance, however, although this might be implied by a more careful examination of the tracts involved.  The largest sale, involving 9 tracts, is AA Page 302. Many of the other sales involved parts of land purchased by David from William A. Blackledge, while many other deeds are for various lots in Greenville.
     David Smith, Jr. was a son of David Smith Sr. and wife Jemima Hardee. The identity of his father is confirmed by the deed cited above.  There is also preserved at the Archives a photographic copy of the will of David Smith Sr., naming David Jr. as a son (see photostat enclosed). This coy was obviously provided fromprivate hands, but unfortunately there is no notation as to its origin.  Note that David Sr. had both an elder sib Gardee Smith, of age by 1793, and a younger son John Hardee Smith.
     The final part of our proof is to show that the wife of David Smith, Sr. was Jemima daughter of Col. John Hardee, and that Jemima was the mother of David Jr. The first condition is readily shown, but the second must rely on some less direct evidence.
     Col. John Hardee left a will dted 1783 but it was lost in the Pitt Courthouse fire of 1857.  However, a brief abstract was apparently made some time previous to this.  In 1961this was said to be among the papers of Judge Henry Bryant of New Bern, and the abstract is reproduced in D. L. Hardee's The Eastern North Carolina Hardy-Hardee Family in the South and Southwest.  Page 188 see photostat enclosed.  Note that this mentions daugher Jemima Smith and grandchildren Hardee, David, Mary and Zilpha Smith, implying that David Jr. was indeed Jemima's son.
     From the deeds it is first clear that David Sr. and family obtainted much of the lands of Co. John Hardee.  For instance, we find the following deeds, which probably concerns a bequest made by Co. Jhn Hardee tohis grandson Hardee Smith:  (M Page 683) North Carolina Pitt County.  This indenture made this fifteenth day of March 1793 between David Smith Senr. and Hardee Smith of the one part and Lemuel Cherry of the other part al of the cunty & state afroesd.  Witnesseth that for Two Hundred and Eighty Nine Spanish milled dollars have sold unto sd Lemuel Cherry a certain tract of land on south side of Tar River and west side of Swift Creek on the Long Branch Ninety Eight acres being part of a tract of land granted to Lawrence Klrwin which waas converyed by deed from said Lawrence Kirwin to Hohn Hardee Esqr. Dated May 22d 1763 and also by Daniel Wilson to said John Hardee Esqr. by deed bearing date May 30th 1764 also another tract on the south side of Tar River and west side of Swift Creek swamp containing one hudred and thirty nine acres being part of a tract of land granted to John Hardee Esqr. dec'd 14th January 1783 for two hundred and eighty acres.
     That Jemima was a daughter of Co. John Hardee is even more directly shown by the following, which also confirms the existence of the will: (S Page 273)  State of North Carolina Pitt County.  Know all men by these presents that I Jemima Smith do for the natural good will love and affection that I bear toward my son Charles Smith but more especially for the consideration of twenty dollars give unto the said Charles all my right title interest claim and demand in and to all the lands whered I now live and the same which was given to me in the last will and testament of my father John Hardee deceased accepting that part which was sold by my husband David Smith to his son Hardee Smith the 13th day of June 1809. Witness: David Smith
     Jemima was living as late as 13 May 1819 when she made a deed to her grandson David A. Smith (DD Page 279). I did not find any direct statement that she was the mother of David Jr. However, the other evidence in combination with the abstract of Col. John Hardee's will appears to confirm that this is so.
     Col. John Hardee, Esq., according to his grave, died on 4 December 1784 aged 77 years 8 months 9 days.  This seem to place his birth at 26 March 1707: however, the change of clendars took place in the inteerventing years, and possibly his birth was actually in 1706.  With him buried his wife, Susanna, said to be a Tyson, who died 8 Aug 1785 Aged 84 and their son Isaac, who died 9 Jan 1760 aged 25 years 7 months and 17 days. John was apparently in Bearfort Precinct by 1 Mar 1736, when he witnessed the will of Samuel Tison.  However, he does not appear in the Beaufort deeds until 13 April 1752 when Moses Tyson sold 100 acres on Tysons Branch to George Sugg and John Hardee as administrators of Benjamin Forbes (3 Page 94) We then find that on 8 Feb 1755 John Moy and Richard Harris sold 103 acres to John Hardee, Trader (3 Page 204), witnessed by Abraham Enloe, Abraham Tison, Arthur Moore.  He also received a Lord Granville grant on 22 Sept 1760 of 50 acres on the north side of Grindall Creek and Impassable Pocoson.
     John is listed on the Beaufort tax of 1755 with Isaac Hardee (his son) and 7 slaves in his household.  On the Pitt tax of 1762 he appears as John Hardee Esq. (1 white, 7 black polls), and he was apparently Sheriff of Pitt Co. in 1767.  He appears in a large number of later deeds, usual referred to as John Hardee, Esq. I first found him calling himself Col. John Hardee in a sale to William Hellen of 29 Jan. 1777 (F Page 247).
     As noted above, Col. John Hardee left a will dated 1783, which is lost, although we do have the brief abstract, made before the Pitt courthouse burned.  This abstract is not necessarily complete, but names no sons, while mentioning a nephew Abram Hardee.  Previous surveys of the Pitt deeds however provided no evidence that Col. John left any surviving sons.  Using the will abstract we can then identify his children as follows:
     1.  Susannah, married (1) Abraham Enloe, and (2) Major Croom, Sr.
     2.  Isaac 22 May 1734  9 Jan 1760
          Apparently the father of the granddaughter, Elizabeth Hardee mentioned in Col. John's will.
     3.  Elizabeth, 1 Jan 1738  5 March 1805 married in 1753 Genl. John Simpson
     4,  Jemima, married David Smith, Sr.
     Col. John Hardee's will mentions a nephew Abram Hardee, and the deeds show that on 17 July 1799 Abraham Hardee sold to Hardee Smith a negro Tom that was given to me by Col. John Hardee decd (P Page 173) This is evidently the same Abraham identified by the deeds as a son of Robert Hardee (born ca. 1710, proving the relationship between Robert and John.
     Another probably brother was Joseph Hardee, who according to later deeds, had a grant in Beaufort on 26 Mar. 1755., although I did not find him on the 1755 tax. North Carolina Secretary of State records show that his will was probated in Pitt in May 1762 by the executor, John Simpson. From later deeds and taxes we can conclude that he left a widow Mary and at least two sons:
     1.  Thomas, likely born ca. 1740, about 1766 sold land bequeathed to him by Joseph (C Page 338). He was likely living in the household of Thomas Jr. in 1800.
     2.  John, sold the land willed to him on 30 Mar. 1770 (D Page 114) I believe this is the John Hardee who removed to Camden Co., Georgia.
     The various other Hardees taxed in Beaufort in 1755 may have included other brothers and or cousins.  These included Thomas (who died prior to 1758 leaving a widow Grisel, acccording to the Beaufort deeds, (3 Page 369), Andrew and Isaac.
     We now turn to the question of the origin of the family, which has been a subject of some controversy.  Some accounts say that Col. John camse from Chowan or Bertie Co., N.C., son of a John Hardee who died in 1739.  Others sayd that he born in Wilmington. However, I have not been able to documnt either of these accounts, and others have apparently also failed to do so. There was a numerous Hardy family in Bertie Co., descending from a John Hardy and wife Charity, who proved imporation rights for themselves and five children in Chowan on 7 Oct 1695.  However, I have not been able to find out Hardees in the Chowan and Bertie records.  I have certainly not exhausted all possibilities there, but I think there is a much more likely possibility in the adjacent counties of Middlesex and Essex in Virginia.  There we find a numerous Hardee family (consistently using the "ee" spelling, which includes most all of the given names used in the early generations of the Hardees in Pitt Co.  I suspect it is from here that our Hardees derived, but unfortunately only limited records of this area are available to me in abstract, and more research will be needed.  In Essex Co. the estate of one Andrew Hardee was administered in 1710 by widow Ann Hardee.  She apparently remarried, and accunts of the estate were presented on 20 Mar. 1715 by Thomas and Ann Wheeler.  On 2 July 1716 Joseph Hardee of Christ Church Parish, Middlesex Co. discharged Thomas Wheeler of Essex for 2 orphans estates belonging to Andrew Hardee deceased (Rec. Bk. 1714-1717 Page 512).  There was also a Robert Hardee active in Essex in 1712-1720, but the Essex record after 1712 have not been abstracted.
     In Middlesex Co. a Joseph Hardee left a will in 1729 which is not available to me here.  We do however have The Parish Register of Christ Church, Middlesex County, Va. from 1653 to 1812 (1897) which contains much on the family.  From this we can form the following family groups: John Hardee died on 13 March 1726/7.  By his wife Margaret he had the following children:
     1.  Robert, born 30 Mar. 1707/8
     2,  Jane, bap. 6 Feb 1708/9
     3.  Isaac, bp. 18 Apr. 1714 Perhaps the Isaac Hardee who died 16 April 1729
     4.  Abraham born 5 July 1722
     5.  Avarilla born 21 Jan. 1725/26
     I wonder if the Robert noted above might be our Robert Hardee, and if Co., John Hardee was an older son of this famiy, whose birth is not recorded (this would assume that John's birth date is off by a year or so on his tombstone) Joseph Hardee, Sr. died on 28 March 1729, leaving a will.  By his wife Availla he had:  1.  Averilla, bp. 22 April 1705
              2.  Joannah born 3 Aug. 1707
              3.  Joseph bp. 23 Oct. 1709 died 2 Dec 1734 perhaps the Joseph who by wife Mary had:
              1.  John born 27 Sept. 1728
              4.  Mary  born 1 May 1712
              5.  Charles bp. 25 Aug. 1715
              6.  Perrott born 4 Apr. 1718
              7.  Sarah born 19 Oct 1720
     Andrew Hardee and Constant Sears were married by banns on 5 Jan 1724. 
They had:  1.  Mary born 19 Jan 1734/35
                     2.  Joseph born 27 June 1737
                     3.  Rhoda born 9 July 1739
                     4.  Andrew born 10 Oct 1741
                     5.  Margaret born 17 July 1744
     John Hardee and Agathe Gardiner were married by banns on 5 Jan 1734, the same date as the above couple.  They had:
                  1.  Agatha born 30 June 1737
                  2.  Sarah born 6 Dec 1738
                  3.  John born 9 April 1741
                  4.  Catherine (twin) born 15 Dec. 1743
                  5.  Elizabeth (twin) born 15 Dec. 1743
                  6.  William born 26 May 1746
                  7.  Daughter born 9 April 1749
                  8.  Josiah born 19 June 1751
     The similarities in given names between these Hardees and the ones in Pitt Co. are really quite remarkable, including the names Robert, John, Andrew, Joseph, Abraham, Isaac and Josiah. Therefore I think it might be worthwhile to pursue the family further in records of Essex, Middlesex and neighboring counties  in Virginia.
