I am searching for the descendants of the Punchards in Catahoula Parish, LA, particularly those descendants living on Sicily Island or any nearby nearby parishes/towns.)
There were at least three or four Punchard brothers living in Louisiana in the during the 1820's to 1830's, two of whom were Englanders William Punchard (b. abt 1787) and his brother Joseph H. Punchard (b. abt 1771), one brother 'possibly' named Samuel Worcester Punchard. We have conducted a great deal of research on William, Joseph and Samuel W. Punchard, all of whommigrated to Hill and Austin counties, the Republic of Texas in the early 1830's.
We know there are numerous ancestral and descendant Punchards buried in various cemeteries Catahoula Parish.
Any and all information will be greatly appreciated.
