- Daniel here,
I need help from the group please.
I hit a brick wall in my research. I can't seem to find any information
on both George Wilyard's (Williard)
All I found was Census records. I'm looking for Obit's or any other
information or newspaper article's.
Last know place resided was Masontown (German Twp.) Fayette County PA
1st George Wilyard (Williard) born in Pa year of 1772 poss death around
Parents: John Peter Williard b/1733 d/1782 @ Walthours block house,
Nancy Walthour b/1775 I have no other information on
her. John Peter had another wife,
Anna Maria Ulrich b/1741 not real sure of death year.
2nd George Wilyard (Williard) b/1822 d/from family stories died around
1904 in Masontown Fayette Co. PA
Parents: above information
1st Wife: Caroline Almost b/1825 d/abt.1880 her father was John Almost
2nd Wife: Phebe Brown b/1842 d/not real sure in 1910 census still alive
and a widow. This was 2nd marrige for
her also. Sill looking where she is burried also.
I have a list of all the children if this would help.
I have obtained a few funeral records that have Hopewell Cemetery in
luzerne Twp Fayette County PA on them.
I have walked the grave yard with no success. Most of the Wilyard graves
have no stones.
Some have Masontown Cemetery fayette Co. PA. I did walk this cemetery
also. Did find grandaughter's grave.
On the census the last name kept changing from Williard to Wilyard and
Thankful to any help.
