Looking for Richard Hardin
Richard Hardin b. about 1761, died in 1828 in OH. He was married to Rachel Crepel (Crepell?) in Frederick, MD on May 30, 1790.
The family story says that this Richard Hardin (Hardy?) first came to the colonies during or right before the War of the Revolution as a recruiter for the British army but he then switched loyalties and fought for the colonies. I have nothing to substantiate this information. I do know that he was a Private in the Continental Line during the American Revolution, he is buried at Grandview (Patriot Square) Cemetery in Ross County, OH.
