These notes were made when I spent a day, in 1965, at the Ouachita Parish, La. Courthouse. You'll see that much of this data ties in with the Scriber-Miller Bible records. My apologies for lack of detail in some cases, but I do feel there are some good clues here. If anyone can give me more information on these HARDY people, please email me. Thanks.
