John Lewis Hardee had two sons, Herbert P. Hardee and Noble Andrew Hardee (II). John and Herbert were commission merchants and fertilizer dealers in Savannah, Georgia. The business was established by Noble Andrew Hardee (1805-1867) as N.A. Hardee & Co., and was continued after his death by his son, John Lewis Hardee as N.A. Hardee's Son & Co. Herbert P. Hardee was associated with his father in the business. Noble Andrew Hardee (II) was a talented musician and specialized in singing and choral work. He was one of the founders of the Savannah Music Club.
This collection consists mostly of business records from N.A. Hardee's Son & Co., including papers concerning payment of or security for debts due N.A. Hardee's Son & Co.: correspondence, deeds, mortgages, bonds, and other papers pertaining to lots and or tracts in Savannah and Macon, Georgia and New York City, and in Screven, Laurens, Burke, Lowndes and Polk Counties, Georgia. There is a separate folder re John L. Hardee's lots in Dooley County. Some of the deeds are chains of title and thus have earlier dates than the scope of these papers. A few letters pledge shipments of cotton in payment. Included is a recipe book of Mrs. John L. Hardee, which also contains a list of names, apparently subscribers to some organization or cause, 1885-1886; a pamphlet, "The Hardee Fertilizers for the Orange," 1886; and papers of Noble A. Hardee (II) pertaining to music and singing.
Margaret Ellis Cubbedge and Charles Ellis, Jr., are the grandchildren of John Lewis Hardee.
