    Hi List,
    I think we need additional census, land, probate, church, etc VA and MD records posted to this forum to help reveal the ages and details of William & Sarah MNU Hardy and the relationship to Solomon Jr. Hardy. Then this forum can discuss the recent postings.
    Until then it can not be conclusively proved that it was William III or William IV or another William that married a Sarah. I lean toward a different William Hardy marrying Sarah Hanson b February 11, 1753. The 1770 VA record shows Hanson Hardy and I think he was about 1 year old and Solomon was William's brother. I also think this William was born abt 1749. The only thing that I could conclude from the Trafford inferences is that the signatures of William Sr. and George Jr (married Lucy Dent) meant they were in VA and they appear to be from a different family line than this Solomon, Willliam and Sarah in the 1770 VA land record.
    Notice that that the VA land record shows William Hardy and not William Hardy Jr. The Loudoun Census records show a William Jr & William Sr. so perhaps the William that married Sarah was a son of different Hardy or a nephew of William III b 1720. William and Sarah may have both died before 1775 and Solomon recorded the deed in 1775 to show the family relationship for a land conveyance. There must be additional Loudoun land records that could help show the conveyances.
