I am looking for anyone who knows something about Philip Hardin's ancestry beyond his parents, Benedict C. Hardin and Mary Moore. Philip, born 1838, lived in Winchester Twp. where he died in 1911. Benedict and Mary Hardin came to Adams County from Preston, West Virginia. I am seeking clues as to their ancestry. My wife is descended from Philip's brother, Joel.
