Elizabeth Harriman Nichols Hardy, 76, born in Penobscot, Hancock County, Maine March 2, 1796.

She married Leonard Wilford Hardy October 22, 1826 in Bradford, Mass. To this union they had four children: Charles Aaron, William, Rufus Leonard (died at 2), and Clarissa Henrietta or Harriman Hardy. They moved to Lowell, Massachusetts by 1846 and converted to Mormonism.

The Lowell Institute for Savings Bank Records show that a "Betsey Hardy" had an account there in 1848. Her occupation was a weaver at that time. Her daughter, Clarissa H. Hardy would have been 14 at the time, certainly old enough to allow her mother to work outside the home.

They left for Utah on April 9, 1850 with about 100 Mormons from the Massachusetts area. They were in the Wilford Woodruff Company, leaving Kanesville, Iowa on June 15, 1850 and arriving in Salt Lake on October 14th. They migrated to Utah with their family and the Samuel B. Hardy family, where they lived next door to each other according to the 1850 Salt Lake City census.

Elizabeth died in Salt Lake City on October 13, 1872, aged 76.

-From members of the Lowell, Massachusetts Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and Leonard Wilford Hardy personal history.

Their children: Charles Aaron Hardy, William Hardy, Rufus Leonard Hardy (died at 2) and Clarissa Henrietta (or Harriman) Hardy.
