Am looking for some help on finding info for my Gerard Family.This is what I have so far:
George Lyon Gerard b. 1842 in Hartford, Connecticut, married Estelle Lilian Pardee Aug. 8, 1866 in Manhattan, New York.George and Estelle had two children that I know of - Sarah Louise Gerard b. 1868 in Connecticut and George Leonard Gerard b. July 1869 in New Haven, Connecticut.
George's wife, Estelle Pardee, is the younger sister of Sarah Lockwood Pardee Winchester, the heiress of the Winchester Rifle fortune.Estelle & Georges' children are listed as trust fund recipients in their Aunt Sarah's will.Sarah Louise also received a monetary inheritance.From the will I found that Sarah Louise Gerard had married; her last name was Ruthrauff and I've no idea what her husbands' first name was.
I know much more about the Pardee line and am willing to share what I have.I'd like to know who George Lyon Gerard's parents are, did he have any siblings, when and where he died.I'd also like to know if he had any grandchildren, did his son George Leonard ever marry and what is Mr. Ruthrauff's first name?Lots of question, I know, but I'm stymied by this family.
Any and all help would be greatly appreciated!Thanks so much for your time.
