Marriage date taken from Hardison family Bible as transcribed by Mary Lou. Mary Lou said Nora's last name was Stegall, and based on that, I found a Stegall family on the same page of the 1920 census as the Hardison family. Her mother's maiden name is taken from a post on Rootsweb from 1996. The birth and death dates are taken from the social security death index but I can't be sure they're for the right Nora Hardison. Rootsweb also has among the record for the Repogle Funeral Home a Mrs. Sam Stegall (Nora's mother, I think) died 1-9-1932, to be buried in Hopewell Cemetery, responsible party Sam Stegall. 

In 1998 Mary Lou said of her brother, Noah, "He married after he come home from the service. They lived up there close to us when we moved up here (to Madison County, TN from Crockett County in 1917), and they just had the one child, and she lives in Memphis."
