Thanks, Nancy, The Byron you mentioned is the one I want. I am trying to trace the Minard connection with the Doans. Sarah, the letter writer, is Sarah Geneiora Minard, D/o Samuel and Rebecca Moore Minard.I am unable to connect the Fanny Minard married to Byron to the other Minards. From what you sent, I found Anna Minard Doan in Speaker with the children in 1870 and got Alida's marriage from her death record and an online marriage record for her. The other children are a mystery. I would like to know what happened to Fanny and Joel, Joshua's brother. It says they ended up in California. I can find no online record for them there. Thanks again.
