Does anyone know of a Nettie Simpkins or Hardin of Salem, Ky? My grandfather was a Hardin but I don't know his first name. My grandmother was Leota Simpkins and my greatgrandmother was Nettie Simpkins who had a farm next to the Butler Farm in Salem. Can anyone help me?

See if any of this rings a bell? Was Nettie first married to Harry Bulter of Salem Ky ? If so the Hardin's first name was Walter, Walter's parents were William Wallace Hardin and Mary Caroline Parker.

Thank you, thank you for responding. Yes my great-grandmother was married to Harry Butler.
Her daughter was Leota Simpkins and Leota had a son (my father) by this Hardin guy. My father never discussed it with us and my grandmother never said much either.
I have this big picture of Harry Butler that we have kept in the family all these years even though he wasn't our real grandfather.
I've always want to find out about the Hardins but couldn't. I even went to Salem but found nothing. If you have anymore info please, please tell me.

Hi again. I'm confused? Was Walter Hardin Nettie's first husband or was he the father
of the child (my father) of Leota Simpkins?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

I was hoping to hear from someone that knew or knew of my grandfather. He had a child with Leota Simpkins and we were told his name might be Jack Hardin. I was just confused as to who Walter was? I couldn't really understand your post if you meant Walter was Nettie's husband or
Leota's lover? But thanks anyway.

Yes that is me, I thought we had spoken before and I lost your email. Now Nettie Simpkins married Benjamin Walter Hardin after Harry Butler passed. Leota had a baby by Joe Hardin whose parents were William David Hardin and Mattie Ann Hays ( Mattie's parents were Joseph Marion Hays and Sarah Amanda Gill) from what I gathered and have it written down some where, after Leota got pregant her parents would not let her see Joe. Joe never married and live with or around his sister ( Marcissa) all his life. Joe's other sibling was Hiram Hardin, William Hardin, John Carson Hardin, Narcissa E. Hardin born December 22, 1899 died Feb. 24, 1974 she married George Dewey Loveless. It has been serveral years since I heard from you and will have to back track my self and find out were I put these notes. Hope this helps a little.

Hi Bonnie, nice to hear from you. It must be 7/8 years since we talked. I remember you were going to ask your Grandmother about the Hardins.
Do you by any chance know who Leota's father was?
We are stumped by that because if Nettie was a Simpkins and Leota was a Simpkins, well.....!
My father passed away and never told us anything. And was Joe Hardin related some way to Nettie's husband Benjamin W. Hardin.
If you know the answer to these two questions my dreams will come true. LOL!

I am in the process of trying to put it all together and as soon as I do I will get it to you. You need to send me your email address so it will be easier for me to contact you. Mine is bshunter@tds.net. From what I am gathering off the census records 1900 salem ky Joe's name was Josiah S.. When is Leota birth date? What all do you have on the Butler's ? Talk to you later

You need to contact Joe Wiggins in Salem, his mother was a Hardin and he knows a lot of family history. He is usually the one recommended when someone is looking for their family history.
