It looks like there are at least three Daniel Allards with ties to SE Ohio --
1) Daniel, probably b 1766, Canada, m Mercy Bickford, d 1849 in Hocking County, OH
2) Daniel, b 22 Oct 1821, Morgan County, OH, m1 Susan / Susannah Swope, m2 Ruth Goode, d 1 Aug 1882, Soldier, Jackson County, KS
3) Daniel Newton Allard that was living in Meigs County, OH, on 16 July 1902 when he filed for Patent number: 729521 (mentioned in a previous post)
4) Is there perhaps another Daniel Newton Allard?
So, I guess I'm asking which one of thes guys is "yours"? I know you posted info about #2, but you didn't necessarily claim him.Yes, it seems they are all related, but there appear to still be some issues about just who is who and what is the "proof" of their heritage, although there are a couple good guesses floating around.
