"Thank you for your work on the Methodist Movement & Slavery. You mentioned Rev. John Haggerty: I descend from his sister, Drusilla. Asbury mentions the death of her husband, Brother George Hardisty while they were together in ministry in Kent, DE in 1779. I descend from their son, Rev. Wm. Hardesty (1776-1846). It is said that Hardesty's cemetery in Carroll County, Ohio contains two unmarked graves, and that they are to have been of contraband slaves who died while in Hardesty's care. Two things became apparent as I researched Hardesty's life, that Methodism migrated away from Wesley's anti-slavery stance, and that Bishop Richard Allen is one of the most remarkable historical figures I've ever come across. Thank you for your research."
