I'm sorry that I don't have any info on the Lards but I'm looking for info on some of their spouses. The lines I'm interested in are Black and Kirk. Mary Susan Lard was married to Wm. Thomas Black and John Levan (sp) was married to Sarah Melissa Kirk. I am directly descended from the Black line that married into the Kirk line. Can you give me any help ? If I can answer any questions you have, I'll be glad to. I was born and raised in Young Co., Tx. where the Blacks and Kirks lived for a time. Thanks.
