Denard William Pilchard was my great-great-grandfather (on my mother's side).He was born in 1843 and died in 1893; he's buried in the Goodwill Cemetery in Goodwill, MD. He married Cora Atlanta Brittingham in 1891, and had five sons (Loyola, Charles Sylvester, William Elmer, Nolan Brice, and Otho Henry--only Elmer had offspring, a daughter who lives in Girdletree, MD), and one daughter (my great-grandmother, Alice Lillian). I remember my great-grandmother, and vaguely my uncles Nolan and Brice. Denard's father, also named Denard, was born in approximately 1812 (per 1850 Census), married Narcissa Payne in 1831, and Rosa Veasey in 1856, and died between 1863 and 1865 (I'd have to double-check my sources, but I think they are deeds, that is, the last deed he signed and the first his widow signed).Denard was the son of Stephen and Ruth (Blades) Pilchard (Stephen is the paternal ancestor from whom I get the name).Denard's children by Narcissa were were Althea (m. Samuel Henry Payne and Peter Holland; Peter is also my ancestor, but by his first wife, thank god), Rosa (m. Mitchell Watson), and William Kendall Pilchard, and by Rosa, Mitchell S. Pilchard.
