I have been searching for a needle in the haystack. My ancestor, Josiah Lumbard came from Maine. That is all I know except his year of birth is probably c1818-23. He came to PA and met a lady by name of Mary Stoner and they had a son in 1844. In an 1850 census Ms Stoner and her small son were married to someone else. I do not know whether Josiah and Mary ever married. Their son carries his father's last name and that makes me think they may have been married. I enquired in Maine area about Josiah Lumbard and received word that there is a "Solomon Lumbard" family on the 1790 census. They were the only Lumbard's listed on the census. Can I assume that I may be connected to that family.
