Ziba Hardee in 1830 Census

Ziba Hardee in the 1830 U.S. Federal Census

In 1830 only the head of household was listed in the census. Ziba is listed on the 1830 US census as Ziba Hardy living in Monroe County, Alabama. The rest of the family is listed as tick marks.

One male under 5; One male 5-9; one male 10-14; one male 30-39; two females under 5; one female 5-9; one female 15-19. Two slaves were also listed, one male, one female.
I believe the males were James E., John, Joel and Ziba. The three younger females are unknown - hence the reason I believe they had three unknown daughters from his first wife Peggy. The last female is Ziba's second wife Tabitha Brooks, who was much younger than Ziba.

No marriage record has been found for Ziba and Tabitha. Some people list a marriage record for them with a date of 1834 but this is the marriage of Ziba's son John who was born in 1816 and he married Sabbetha Brooks in 1834.

Ziba and Tabitha's first child, James E. Hardee was born about 1825 so they were likely married prior to that.
Below is his name as it is listed in the 1830 census.
