[Sarah Hardin]     Frederick  married twice,  first  in his early twenties to  Sarah Hardin (b 1733 - d prior to Oct 1780 ), daughter of Sarah Elizabeth and Benjamin Hardin, II of Virginia.  He is listed as one of the married men serving in Captain Samuel Corbin’s company of 48, during the Spanish Alarm, Wilmington, NC 1747-1748.  Frederick and Sarah  had twelve children, six died in infancy.  The surviving children were: Elizabeth , m Joseph Jenkins; John Hardin, m Nancy Black; Frederick, Jr., m Mary Eaker; Sarah, m Peter Eaker; Benjamin, m ________; James, m Rachel Wells.

In the early 1750’s, Frederick traveled south with a group from Virginia to the Carolinas, accompanied by Sarah and her brothers, Capt. Joseph, John, and Benjamin, and others. Upon arrival in Anson County, later to become Tryon and then Lincoln, these pioneers  erected log cabins and joined with neighbors in building a Fort for protection against the Catawba Indians. Land was patented on the Catawba River, Aug. 30, 1753, and in May 1769 he purchased land in the fork of Long Creek and Still House Branch, near present Dallas, NC.  This is where Sarah died and is buried and where Frederick lived until 1781.
