I'm very happy to hear from you and hope you can provide some information I haven't yet been able to find.
My Grandfather, Robert BYARD, was one of the first permanent settlers in Sedgwick, Maine in 1763/64.He has no background in this country that we descendants have discovered.When he married my Grandmother, Abigail GLOVER, in Salem MA in 1763, he called himself a mariner and one of his descendants from Sedgwick said he was from England, making it sound as if he had recently arrived.
Robert and Abigail's son, John Byard, married a "Eunice" in Sedgwick and I suspect she was Eunice Hale, even though I'm not positive.Call it a hunch. Also, I think Robert Byard may have known the Silver and/or Hale families in MA.
If the Byard name is in your husband's tree, I'll be ecstatic and happy to share whatever Byard information I can provide.If Eunice Hale was married to someone else, I'd love to know that too.
Thank you so much for responding to my Genforum post!
