I am seeking more information about John Dycus Byard, he is my great-great-great-great grandfather.
My family and I have discovered he was born 1795 in New York State and died 31 Aug. 1859 in Stewart County, TN.He was of possible English/Irish decent; worked as a barrel maker and fought in the war of 1812.First wife Cynthia M. Spencer, one son, Benjamin F. Byard, 1832.Second wife Prudence Hoff (b. 1817d. 5 Jan. 1884) (m. 4 June 1836 in Mariette, Washington County, Ohio) (they were living in Hopkins County Kentucky in 1850) bearing multiple children including my great-great-great grandfather Enoch Napolian Byard; b. 1846d. 1888.
Enoch Napolian Byard married Sallie Jane Suiter (b. 4 June 1864d. 29 April 1952).He was born in Indiana and a Colonel for the Confederacy.
