Brief history of the Hardin family, 1733-1943:

Martin D. Hardin (1780-1823), a lawyer, soldier and politician in Kentucky, was born in Pennsylvania on June 21, 1780, the son of John Hardin, an officer in the American Revolution. He moved to Kentucky with his parents in April 1786. He pursued an academic course of study; attended Transylvania College; studied law; and was admitted to the bar, practicing law in Richmond and Frankfort, Kentucky.

 

He was a member of the Kentucky House of Representatives in 1812, 1818, and 1819; Secretary of State of Kentucky, 1812-1816; and served in the United States Senate as a Democrat from Nov. 13, 1816 to Mar. 3, 1817, having been elected to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of William T. Berry. He was a major in the Kentucky Militia during the War of 1812 and a presidential elector on the Democratic ticket of Monroe and Tompkins in 1820.

 

He married Elizabeth Logan, the daughter of General Benjamin Logan. Four children (two sons and two daughters) were born to them. He died in Frankfort (Ky.), Oct. 8, 1823.

 

John J. Hardin (1810-1847), son of Martin D. Hardin, was born in Frankfort (Ky.) on Jan. 6, 1810. He pursued a classical education and was graduated from Transylvania University. He studied law and was admitted to the Kentucky Bar in 1831. He married Sarah Ellen Smith on Jan. 13, 1831. Four children were born to them: two sons and two daughters.

 

He commenced his legal practice in Jacksonville, Illinois in 1831, and in 1832 was appointed State's Attorney for Morgan County (Ill.). He served in the Illinois House of Representatives, 1836-1842; and as a Whig in the U.S. House of Representatives from Mar. 4, 1843, through Mar. 3, 1845. He was not a candidate for renomination.

 

He was an officer in the Illinois Militia during the Black Hawk War 1831-1832; and was Brigadier General in command during the Mormon troubles in Hancock County (Ill.) in 1844, later attaining the militia rank of Major General. During the Mexican War, he recruited the 1st Regiment of Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and was commissioned its colonel. He was killed during the Battle of Buena Vista, Mexico, Feb. 23, 1847.

 

(The information on Martin D.Hardin and John J. Hardin was taken from the Biographical Directory of the American Congress 1774-1949, and from the Hardin family papers.).

 

Martin D. Hardin (1837-1923), son of the above John J. Hardin, was born in Jacksonville (Ill.) on June 26, 1837. He was graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1859, and breveted a 2nd Lieutenant in the 3rd U.S. Artillery, July 1 1859. He served at the Artillery School, Fort Monroe, Virginia, 1859-1860; and was an aide to Col. Robert E. Lee during the time of John Brown’s raid at Harper’s Ferry. He crossed the continent with the Blake Expedition to Oregon, May-Oct. 1860; was stationed at Fort Umpqua, Oregon, Oct. 1860-Oct. 1861, returning to the East with General Sumner’s expedition via Panama.

 

During the Civil War, Hardin served with the Army of the Potomac; and commanded the 12th Regiment, Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps (the 41st Regiment of the line), the 1st and 3rd Brigades of Pennsylvania Reserves, and received several severe wounds during the war, losing his left arm by amputation in Dec. 1863. He was mustered out of the service as a Brigadier General, Jan. 15, 1866.

 

He reentered the Army on July 18 1866 as a Major in the 43rd U.S. Infantry. He served as Superintendent of the Recruiting Service, and subsequently commanded Fort Wayne, Indiana; Fort Porter, Buffalo, N.Y.; and Fort Gratiot, Michigan. He was retired, on account of wounds, as a Brigadier General, Dec. 15, 1870.

 

He moved to Chicago in 1870 and opened a law practice. He was married twice, with no children born to either union. His first wife was Estelle Graham, whom he married on Nov. 15, 1864. She died on Aug. 24, 1890. His second wife (who survived him) was Amelia McLoughlin, whom he married on Oct. 24, 1892. He died in his St. Augustine, Florida, winter home on Dec. 12, 1923.

 

(The information on Martin D. Hardin, 1837-1923, was taken from Who Was Who in America 1897-1942, and from the Hardin family papers.)

 

Description of the collection:

Letters, diaries, account books, order books, muster rolls and other materials relating to careers of several members of the Hardin family as lawyers, soldiers, real estate investors, and politicians, primarily in Kentucky (ca. 1786-1830) and Illinois (ca. 1831-1923) and to family relationships and roles of women. Primary persons in the collection are Martin D. Hardin (1780-1823), John J. Hardin (1810-1847), Martin D. Hardin (1837-1923).

 

Early papers deal with property holdings, John Hardin’s quartermaster’s account book 1777-1779 during the Revolution, and the Spanish and American Indian opposition in Kentucky, 1793-1794. Correspondents include Thomas Jefferson, Edmund Randolph, Anthony Wayne, and Henry Knox.

 

Martin D. Hardin's papers concern his law practice at Frankfort (ca. 1800-1823), politics, and militia in the War of 1812. Correspondents included Henry Clay, Abraham Hite, James Morrison, and Charles A. Wickliffe.

 

John J. Hardin’s papers relate to the courtship of Sarah Ellen Smith; his law practice with partner, David A. Smith; Illinois politics and government, the Whig Party and post office patronage; the Black Hawk War, 1832 (including muster rolls and general orders); the Mexican War, 1845-1848 (raising of Illinois troops; Hardin’s service with 1st Illinois Infantry and disputes with General John E. Wool); and the Mormon troubles, 1844-1845 (negotiations over the Mormon evacuation of Nauvoo, including Brigham Young letters). Incoming letters include frequent references to Stephen A. Douglas, and occasional ones to Abraham Lincoln and John Wentworth.

 

Later papers and writings of Martin D. Hardin (1837-1923) and his sister, Ellen Hardin Walworth, discuss his life (including the Blake Expedition to Oregon in 1860), the 41st Pennsylvania Infantry during the Civil War; and family history.

 

The collection is arranged chronologically and falls into 6 archival series.

Series 1. Hardin family early papers, 1733-1800.

Series 2. Papers of Martin D. Hardin, 1800-1823.

Series 3. Papers of John J. Hardin, 1829-1847

Series 4. Papers of David A. Smith, 1848-1866 (John J. Hardin’s law partner).

Series 5. Papers of Martin D. Hardin & Ellen Hardin Walworth, 1863-1922.

Series 6. Typed transcripts with annotations and index of portions of the collection.

Series 7. Oversize folders.

 

Description of archival series within the collection:

Series 1. Hardin family early papers, 1733-1800.

The lot is basically concerned with the business interests (chiefly in real property) of the Hardin family. Mark Hardin and Martin Hardin are frequently mentioned. Personal correspondence is also present.

 

Included among these item are: 11 pieces (including letters by Thomas Jefferson, Anthony Wayne, Edmund Randolph, and Henry Knox) relative to Spanish and Indian conspiracies in Kentucky 1793-94; and John Hardin’s Quartermaster’s account book 1777-1779.

 

Series 2. Papers of Martin D. Hardin, 1800-1823.

This lot pertains to Martin D. Hardin’s work as a lawyer, personal affairs, Kentucky politics and government, and the War of 1812. The legal papers (letters, deeds, indentures, etc.) comprise the bulk of the material, with considerable correspondence of James Morrison, Abraham Hite, and Charles A Wickliffe. There are scattered letters on state politicians and issues, particularly bank measures. The “War” papers primarily relate to the administration and activities of the Kentucky Militia. There are several Isaac Shelby and John F. Calhoun letters present, in addition to 19 letters from Henry Clay to Martin D. Hardin. Also included are approx. 75 items relative to the operation and expenditures of the steamship Frankfort, 1818-1822 (in folder #129).

 

Series 3. Papers of John J. Hardin, 1829-1847

The John J. Hardin papers include his personal, legal, military, and political papers; plus assorted letters and business papers of various members of the Hardin and related families, particularly the McHenrys.

 

Hardin’s personal papers include: the diary of his trip to Illinois and Missouri in 1830 in search of a home site; the correspondence of his courtship with Sarah Ellen Smith, 1829-1832; and miscellaneous family letters and business papers.

 

The legal papers are letters, account and memorandum sheets, etc., of Hardin and his law partner, David A. Smith of Jacksonville, Illinois. Following the John J. Hardin materials in this collection are David A. Smith’s legal and personal papers, 1848-1866.

 

The military papers concern the Black Hawk War, the Mormon troubles in Illinois 1844-1845, and the Mexican War, with some reference to the peacetime militia.

 

The Black Hawk War material (May-Dec. 1831, approx. 100 items, including some handwritten copies) includes muster rolls, morning reports, general orders, and letters. Among the correspondents are: Hardin, Joseph Duncan, John Reynolds, Felix St. Vrain, and Edmund P. Gaines. Hardin’s order book of the Mounted Illinois Volunteer Militia (June 13-July2, 1831) is among the papers. (Many of the muster rolls are stored in Oversize.)

 

The Mormon documents (1842-1846 and an undated item, 42 items) are primarily concerned with the negotiations over the Mormon evacuation of Nauvoo. Among the correspondents are: Hardin, Thomas Ford, Stephen A. Douglas, William B. Warren, James A. McDougall, and Brigham Young. Ellen Hardin Welworth’s undated article “The Mormon Theocracy in Illinois 1840-1845,” is also present. (The Mormon material is located in folders Nos. 285, 293, and 294.). [See later pages of this descriptive inventory for a detailed description of the Mormon-related items and a listing of authors and recipients of the related letters].

 

The Mexican War material consists of Hardin’s memoranda and letters to his wife (1846-1847), while he was with the Army of the Chihuahua; his order book of the 1st Illinois Volunteer Infantry, July 1, 1846-June 16, 1847; and correspondence relative to the organization and staffing of Illinois Regiments for service. Hardin’s writings chronicle the activities of the 1st Regiment, and contain frequent comments on his disputes with General John Ellis Wool.

 

The political material pertains to the Whig Party in Illinois and the U.S., and Illinois politicians and issues. Many letters involve post office patronage and requests for Whig campaign literature to counteract that of the Democrats. There are recurrent references to Stephen A. Douglas, John Wentworth, Hardin’s political campaigns, internal improvements, and bank measures, in addition to a few remarks on Lincoln. Letters, many from various Clay Clubs, concern the presidential campaigns of 1836, 1840, and 1844.

 

Also included among the papers of this period are 10 letters of Lydia Ann McHenry describing living and political conditions in Texas, 1835-1844.

 

Series 4. Papers of David A. Smith, 1848-1866 (John J. Hardin’s law partner).

This lot of Smith’s legal and personal papers supplement his own letters within the John J. Hardin materials in the preceding section. This lot primarily consists of Smith's legal correspondence, much of it involving Reuben H. Walworth and his wife, and William Brown on realty and estate matters. Among the miscellaneous items is Smith’s account book with the trustees of the Jacksonville Female Academy, 1850-1853.

 

Series 5. Papers of Martin D. Hardin & Ellen Hardin Walworth, 1863-1922.

The materials in this section are a sundry lot of letters, articles, miscellaneous writings, etc. of Martin D. Hardin and his sister, Ellen Hardin Walworth, and various papers of the Hardin and related families.

 

Among the Civil War materials are items concerning the amputation of Hardin’s left arm; extracts from Edwin D. Benedict’s diary, June-Aug. 1863; and copies (apparently made in 1884) of Union Army Reports during July 1864.

 

Also present are letters from various members of the Hardin family relative to the compilation of a family history; and genealogical and biographical information on the Hardin, McHenry, and Kenney families (in folders 351-354).

 

A small lot of letters and legal papers pertain to Hardin’s Chicago law practice and his efforts on behalf of the erection of monuments to the commanders at the Battle of Gettysburg.

 

The bulk of the materials are the writings of Martin D. Hardin and his sister:

a) Martin D. Hardin’s “Reminiscences,” written in 1880-1881. 1 v. (105 ms. p.).

 

b) Martin D. Hardin’s articles on the Blake Expedition to Oregon in 1860, and military life in Oregon prior to the Civil War. no date. 40 typescript p. (In folder #355) & “Trip Across the Continent,” in 1860.

 

c.) Sara John English’s copy (Oct. 23, 1943), of “The Walworth Parricide,” (taken from Remarkable Trials of All Countries, New York, 1882, vol. 2, p. 126-194) is also present. The parricide refers to Frank H. Walworth’s murder of his father, Mansfield Tracey Walworth, in New York City, June 3, 1873.

 

d) Martin D. Hardin’s manuscript of the History of the Twelfth Regiment, Pennsylvania Reserve Volunteer Corps ….” no date, ca. 300 ms. p. (Book was published in 1890, and a copy is in the library collection, Chicago History Museum.)

 

e) “An Account of the Lives and Times of Some Members of the Writers’ Branch of the Hardin Family,” anonymous, no date: 1 v. (353 typescript p.) probably written by Ellen Hardin Welwoth and Martin D. Hardin.

 

Series 6. Typed transcripts with annotations and index of portions of the collection.

Typed transcript for Travel through Texas and Mexico, 1846, was made by Dr. James Milgram.

 

Typed transcripts of letters, 1827-1842, were made by Frederick Sherman in the 1990s:

The transcription has been facilitated by a modern word processor. To keep the computer files conveniently small, each contains just five letters. Thus the numbering of footnotes in the printouts starts anew for letters # 1, 6, 11, 16 and so on; while sources for the information given in the footnotes are listed after letters # 5, 10, 15, 20 and so on.

 

This transcription attempts to retain the original spelling and punctuation (or lack of punctuation). Only those spelling errors that seem to have been accidental, rather than part of a consistent style, have been corrected. Because the authors were mostly very literate, there was little need for such correction. Of course, it is not always easy to discern the original spelling and punctuation, the ink having faded in some places and smeared in others.

 

Information on provenance provided by Mr. Sherman, a descendant of the Hardin family:

In 1880, an effort was made Martin D. Hardin, Lemuel Smith Hardin, and their sister, Ellen Hardin Walworth, to gather family papers and to write a history and genealogy of the Hardin family. Nothing much came of the intention to write, but an interesting collection of letters and other papers was made, and eventually deposited with the Chicago Historical Society. The heart of this collection is a group of letters exchanged between members of the extended family during the years 1828-1859. They were written mostly in Kentucky, Illinois and Mississippi, where the family had scattered after growing up in Kentucky. The central figures are John J. Hardin and Sarah Ellen (Smith) Hardin, the parents of Martin D., Lemuel S., and Ellen. There are, however, many other authors, and many somewhat cryptic references to a rather wide cast of characters
