The following are believed to be the chidlren of Hard:

1) Ara Elizabeth b. 1855
2) Samuel Powell b. 1861
3) Nancy Jane b 1865 m. Andrew Jackson Collins
4) John A b. 1870
5) Robert Newton b. 1871
6) William Henry b. 1873 m. Omie Mae Wooten
7) Willis H b. 1877

It is doubtful that William Derril is a son as Hard would have been 18 (not impossible but not likely) It is not clear who William Derrill's parents were.

Hard legally married Elizabeth Gilbreath on Feb 10, 1890 in Bradley Co but had been cohabiting for several years and had the above children.

Hard died before 1900, possibly around 1896/1897
