T. W. Hardy, NC, died September 2, 1882

September 7, 1882 (The Commonwealth)

DEATH OF A NOMINEE.–T. W. Hardy, colored, who was nominated for the Legislature by the Halifax Republican Convention, the 26th of August, died at his home last Saturday. Hardy was sick when he left here to attend the convention, and, it is thought, the excitement and the heat of the convention killed him. At all events if he had remained at home he would probably be alive today.

[There is a 19-year-old T. W. Hardy on the 1880 census for Palmyra, Halifax, North Carolina. If this is him, he would have only been 21 at the time of the convention and his subsequent death. His parents were Stewart (born 1831) and Peggy Hardy (1843), and he had a younger brother, A. F. Hardy (born 1873).]
