Hi, Jean.According to my father's genealogy of the Agards which is quite accurate as regards this line (also my line), this Lydia was the daughter of Benjamin Agard and his second wife Sarah Hiscox.Lydia was born 1779 inStafford CT.She had siblings Nathan b. 1778 (my ggg grandfather), Chloe b. 1782, Polly b. 1784, Sally b. 1784, Benjamin b. 1787.
Lydia's father Benjamin b. 1750 in Mansfield CT was the first son (second child) of an elder Benjamin b. 1716 also in Mansfield, who was fourth son of John the Younger b. 1683 in or near Boston.John the Younger was the only known child of John the Elder who is considered the original immigrant, presumably from England or Wales, but of whom almost nothing is known.The widow Esther of John the Elder married Samuel Storrs and John the Younger was raised in the Storrs family.
Lydia's children seem to include Lucius, Philomela, George, Leonard, Elmira, Lucy, and Warren.It appears that most of these (except for Warren) moved to Ohio.I have very little information on them and would appreciate any information which you have on them or on Warren.I have additional information on these older Agards.Feel free to write me in or out of this forum:firstname.lastname@example.org.
