I've just started to add the Bayards to our family tree and can invite whomever is looking for this family to our tree at Ancestry.com.
Just send me your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org
I've started with Jean Francois Bayard and wife Mary Ann Boneau with children: 1)Samuel Bayard 1826 – 1898 married Martha J. Orr 2)Mary Louise Bayard 1828 – 1912 married Prosper Eluere 3)John Francis "Frank" Bayard 1830 – 1880 married Alice O. B. 4)Mary Ann Adeline "Adelia" Bayard 1832 – 1911 married Marcelle D. LaCroix 5)Eleanor Pauline Bayard 1836 – 1904 married Charles A. Weisert 6)Susan Hannah Bayard 1836 – 1882 married M. A. Pilard (sp?) 7)Joseph L. Bayard 1840 – 1930 married Nellie Helen Burke 8)Mary Elizabeth Bayard 1843 – 1928 married Henry Vanderburgh Somes 9)Margaret Clotilda Bayard 1848 – 1938(?) married Henry Sullivan Cauthorn
I'm working on adding all of the children for these marriages and adding stories and photos to individuals that I'm transcribing from various Vincennes, Knox Co, IN, and Evansville, Vanderburgh Co, IN, history books.
My Pea family is distantly connected to the Bayards through the marriage of Mary Louise Bayard and Prosper Eluere. Prosper's son Louis J. Eluere married Anna C. Beckes, and Anna Beckes is granddaughter of Benjamin Vincennes Beckes, who married Elizabeth Betsy Frederick, widow of John Henry Pea (1766-1810), who was son of my 6th great grandparents, Jacob Pie/Pee/Pea and Rachel Regina Maquinet from Lancaster Co, PA. Its a far reach, but close enough for me to add everything I can find on these families to our tree. =)
