Thank you C. Hardiman and N. Smallwood

Lawrenceville High School, March 1, 2024

Clarence Hardiman and Nick Smallwood, students in the Lawrenceville High School "School within School" credit recovery program, presented family history research reports to Larry Curry and John M. King, representatives from the Lawrence County Historical Society. 

Hardiman, who completed his requirements for graduation last fall, researched James Hardiman, an enslaved man who was given freedom by the will of George Washington Hardiman in 1851 in Robertson County, Tennessee.  James Hardiman, with his mother and siblings, moved to Evansville, Indiana, and eventually married into the Lyles family of Lyles Station, Indiana. 

Smallwood, who will complete requirements this semester, researched his ancestor, William Smallwood, who was born in Maryland before 1755, moved to Virginia, then North Carolina, and finally, Kentucky, before his children spread out to Indiana, Illinois, and Missouri.  The reports will be donated to the Historical Society's library.  Dann Norton, a member of the Association for Professional Genealogists, is instructor for the credit recovery program and assisted the students with their research.

L Curry, C Hardiman, N Smallwood, J King
