FHL microfilm 1307501, "Descendants of Richard CARD who had three sons, Joseph, James and Job, Vol. II, Descendants of James CARD" compiled from records of Lester CARD by Mary Card Yarnell in 1980 states: "Lester Card thought possibly, and later researchers have assumed categorically, that Richard CARD of Newport, Rhode Island, was identical with Richard GEOARD of Massachusetts.Richard GEOARD/GOARD/GOAR came from England, 1635, in the "Elizabeth and Ann" at age 17, landing in Ipswich, Massachusetts.He was made a freeman in Massachusetts and died 1683, blind. He married 1639 at Roxbury, Massachusetts, Phebe HEWES.Richard and Phebe had son Joseph I and II, Benjamin I and II, John , b. 1643, and about four daughters. This line appears totally separate from that of Richard CARD of Newport, Rhode Island."
