Hi. Laura.This is Steve Agard, Ithaca High School 1955.My father FBAgard knew your grandmother Louise Myers, and in fact I have a genealogy (in carbon copy!) which she gave him probably in the 70's.I'm very surprised no one has responded to your note, but I am certainly interested.We can talk about that another time, but for today:
(1)A certain Susan Agard, Native American living in South Dakota and several times great granddaughter of the Louis Agard character, contacted me about 20 years ago, not knowing anything about me just cold-calling Agards in Minneapolis.It was clear to me that I couldn't help her in tracking Louis further back in time, and that he didn't fit into my family tree.We lost touch soon after, but the man does show up in the 1880 Census.
(2)I too have tried to contact Christine Harris without success.She knew many things my father did not know.I fear she has either died or lost interest completely.Did you ever actually correspond?
Anyway, I invite you to use my email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can start a conversation.I still have relatives in NYS and was planning a trip out there this summer.Are you in the Elmira area still?
