Hardy, of Calera, died of pneumonia on Friday morning, at his summer residence at Shelby Springs. Mr. Hardy had only been sick since last Sunday. He had many warm friends in Shelby county, who are much grieved at this dispensation of Providence. Mr. Hardy did more and was doing more for Calera, perhaps, than any other one man, and none would be more missed. He was buried today at 10 o'clock a.m. He leaves a wife and one child to mourn his loss. – Montgomery Advertiser of January 14. ----------------------------- Early History of Calera, Alabama By Bobby Joe Seales
The major industry in Calera continued to be the manufacture of lime. In 1882 several lime kilns were operating, owned by J.D. Hardy, N.B. Dare, R.E. O'Brien, and John W. Hardy. In 1883 they formed a corporation known as the Alabama Lime Company and as indicated in the Shelby Sentinel, dated January 1, 1885, "Calera had grown to a small town of about 207 inhabitants."
