Grandson of Gabriel Hardin (~1710-1801)
William Hardin, b. 1760-1770, settled in Carter County, Tennessee
Y-DNA shows this man to be an I-M253 (what I call a Norse) Hardin. A
descendant of William Hardin has posted the line from William to
himself here: www.hhhdna.com/hhh.htm.
For that line please see test kit number B5353.
I found William Hardin on the 1840 Carter County, Tenn. census where he
was reported born 1760-1770. He married Mary Ann Nave in 1798 in Carter
County's predecessor, Washington County, North Carolina. Her father was
Detrich Nave as reported on findagrave.com. The Naves were settlers in
Searching for clues, I came upon a death certificate in Carter
County for a Chrisley M. Hardin. He died Dec. 16, 1935 and was born
1860. He was unmarried. His father's name was given by informant Jessie
Nave of Elizabethtown as William Hardin, born Tennessee, and his mother
Annie Jane Nave, born Tennessee. William, the father, born before 1840
by deduction, would have been a
grandson of the settler William born ~1765.
Origin of William Hardin
I've spoken with a researcher who has reason to believe the Carter County William Hardin is of the Moore County , North Carolina Hardins. Men of William's generation, born ~1770, are of the right age to be grandchildren of Gabriel Hardin of Moore County, or children or grandchildren of Gabriel Hardin's younger brother William Hardin of Moore County, or children or grandchildren of Gabriel Hardin's other young brother John Hardin of Chatham County, North Carolina. All three of these men I believe to be sons of Samuel Hardin of Brunswick County, Virginia along with Samuel Hardin, Jr. and Thomas Hardin, both of whom did not migrate past Granville County, N.C.
Few of those grandchildren
have been located or even named. However you can find WILLIAM HARDIN, JR. in the records of Moore County, N.C. See Gabriel Hardin's page
for those records. He may be the son of Gabriel's younger brother
William. It seems to me it would be useful to consider that
possibility. We can also research whether he is a son of one of Gabriel

These trees are useful for seeing the descendants of William Hardin.
For their proposed ancestors to be correct, William must connect with
an I1-M253 "Norse" Hardin father.
