OK, very good.Luman and Norman Agard were brothers, sons of Judah Agard and Hannah Yale.Norman was a casualty of the war of 1812, said to have named Luman as his heir. Perhaps these grants of remote property were government policy at a certain moment of US history?Be that as it may, Luman probably never left New England and may be buried at Torrington CT, where his son Bradley is buried--at any rate he (Luman) is memorialized on the monument.
As far as I know, the first Agard to actually live in Illinois was Jonathan G. who arrived in Waverley, Morgan County, around 1840.Soon after came James S. who settled in Adams County.James S. is second cousin to Luman, Jon G. is second cousin once removed.
The only Agard/Pease link that I know involves a marriage between Julia Agard Hall and Alonzo Pease in Michigan around 1900.Julia was a niece of Jon G. but this was her second marriage and came after she had borne 11 children to her first husband John Hall of England.
These Agards are believed to have come originally from England, all descended from a certain John Agard who has traces in Boston in the 1680's.There are opinions and guesses as to where in England he came from, but I prefer to stay out of that one.
