  • Name Hardy Nixon Vickers 
    Born 1772  North Carolina Find all individuals with events at this location  [1, 2
    • Some sources say that Hardy Nixon Vickers was born in North Carolina and moved to Georgia at an early age. Other sources say he was born in Georgia. I am tempted to believe that he was born in North Carolina only because of the extensive migration into newly opened areas of northeast Georgia around that time.
