James Hardin and his wife Mary Reeves were among the first of the pioneer settlers of Monroe County Georgia. They were married on January 20, 1818 and settled at Russellville in the 1820’s. From this union there were a large number of descendants. William Reeves Hardin, a son, signed an oath of allegiance to the United States of America, with reference to the emancipation of slaves. Bill Hardin, as he was called, was the father of T. J. Hardin, Frank Hardin, Reeves Hardin, Homer Hardin and Charles Hardin. They were some of the pillars of Russellville Baptist Church, and added much to the history of this section. Source - Monroe County Communities
