Re: Maryland Sards (Dorchester Co)
Ernest was my grandfather.His father was William Lloyd (wife Emma Frasier).They moved to Landing Neck, Talbot County, MD on a steamboat from Dorchester County, MD according to family.
William's father was Josiah Edward (b. 1822,d. 1866).William's mother was Louisa Carrol (b. 1819, d. 1877) according to tombstone records of Dorchester County.Josiah is burried at Salem Methodist Church in Dorchester County, just outside Cambridge, Maryland.
Josiah's father was John (b. 1789) who married Elizabeth Carrol in 1816 according to records at the Maryland Hall of Records.
John's father was Peter (b. 1743? ).Peter married Nancy Marine (perhaps 2nd wife) in 1788.
It is possible although I can not prove it yet, that Peter's father was John Sard(e)of Annapolis, MD.John married Eleanor Fisher in 1720.
