From The Hardeman Papers In Tennessee

From the Hardeman Papers at the Tennessee State Library and Archives:

Hardeman, John (3) to Peter Hardeman, 1810-1818, re: forwarding propositions for sale of land on Harpeth [River]; believes that offer for land is inadequate; Battle of New Orleans; capture of their brothers preferred to that of being killed; would rather die than become a subject of the British king; business matters; had written to General Coffee re: Peter’s whereabouts; ...

John Clendenin, first husband of my ancestor, Mrs. Fanny Trousdale, was awarded land on the Harpeth River for his services in the Revolutionary War.  Were the Hardemans neighbors?  Did they buy the Clendenin property?  What would the papers reveal?

Genealogical Abstracts in Revolutionary War Pension Files by Virgil White:
Clendennan, John or John Clendenan or Clandennan, BLW #1803-200, NC Line, sold in 1787 at "Big Harpeth" in Sumner Cty, TN... .
