Thank you, Tina! I will add your information to my records. It's a stretch... my connection: my ancestors Hance and Jane Woods, immigrants to Allegheny County, PA > their daughter Mary Woods married Archibald Yourd > their son Hugh Yourd 1835-1912 married Hannah Wood 15 December 1887 in Boone County, AR and they had no children together. However, in the 1970s Robert Wilson Yourd reported to John L. Yourd about meeting one of Hugh Yourd's sons in Topeka, Kansas, perhaps 40-50 years before, and that on a separate occasion his mother had met one of them. Hugh Ewart, 14, was living with his family in Allegheny County, PA in 1850. He was known to have gone west to engage in agriculture, known to have been in Springfield, IL and Sparta, IL, and in DesMoines County, IA for several months. In 1860 he is found in the Perry County, IL census, and enlisted in the 10th Reg., 10th Illinois Volunteer Infantry in 1861, mustered out 1962, then on detached duty, Pioneer Corps, 2nd Division, 7th A.C., Department of Arkansas, and Sgt. Co. C, 61st IL Infantry, mustered out, discharged 1865. By 1880 he was in Marion County, AR. He took a homestead on Crooked Creek, Boone County, AR.According to Hannah's pension application, he had never been married, and had lived at Atkins, Pope County, AR before he arrived in Boone County. Hugh Yourd's uncle James Woods is my ancestor.
