    Notes 
    • Hardin County and Hardin, Texas (Liberty County), were named in honor of the Hardin family.
          Texas Handbook OnLine gives this accounty of him:
        "Benjamin Watson Hardin, early settler and political figure ... was born in Franklin County, Georgia, on March 25, 1796. By 1807 he was living in Maury County, Tennessee, with other family members and managing the family farm. Because of an affair between his brother's wife, Mrs. A. B. Hardin, and Isaac Newton Porter, of which Porter bragged about publicly, Benjamin accompanied his brothers to a meeting with Porter and William Williamson in Columbia, Tennessee, on October 1, 1825. During the ensuing confrontation Hardin's brothers Augustine and Benjamin Franklin Hardin fatally shot Porter and Williamson. After being indicted with his brothers, including William Hardin, in December 1825, Hardin fled to what is now Liberty County, Texas, in 1827 in order to avoid a possible conviction for murder and to join other family members who had similarly made themselves scarce in Tennessee."
          He received a league of land in 1831 North of what is now Liberty, Texas and served as sheriff of the Liberty District. He served as sheriff of Liberty county from 1839 to 1845.  He also served as the Liberty County representative to the Ninth Congress (1844-45) of the Republic of Texas.
          He married a first cousin to Melina Dalton Whittington, who received a land grant for what is now much of Liberty county, Texas, just South of the grant he received.  The Devers, Hardin, Whittington and Yocum families of that area were all related by marriage.  It is not known what their actual interrelationships were.
