- I have a report that Jonathan Butcher did for me in 1987 on the
Hardee-Smith-Kittrell connections. There were questions about
the Hardee connections but still a very good report.
I will try and get it posted on Pitt County Family Researchers
Regarding Isaac Hardee, Col. John Hardee's son.
Isaac was born May 22, 1734 died Jan 9, 1760
married Cassandra Smith (no info)
Possibly Isaac and Cassandra had a daughter named
Elizabeth. One researcher says they had two daughters.

"Could bloom of Youth, could universal love, Could tears of parting
friends to pity
move, Relentless Fate, Sure Fate had been inclin'd, To spare a hand for
design'd; But since one common death one common grave awaits the
the generous Brave, Since naught on Earth but yields to God's Decree,
declared that short man's life shall be; Let this Fair Flower, Crop't
in its Freshest
Bloom, Teach us that Life's a span that Death's our door That all our
hope's on our
Redeemer Rest; Like Him with Him Rest; Like Him with Him be Blest.
