Line of descent from Thomas Burchard - Mary Robinson
John Burchard - Christian Andrews
Samuel Burchard - Ann Calkins
John Burchard - Mary Baldwin
Elias Burchard - Sarah Jacobs
Roger Burchard - Arabella Austin
Sophia Birchard - Rutherford Hayes
Rutherford Birchard Hayes - Lucy Webb

You asked if the above Birchard line is correct. It may be, except for one small fact and that is that Elias Birchard above was NOT the natural father but rather was the step-father of Roger Birchard. Roger was the illegitimate son of Sarah Jacobs by a man identified as ______ Cornwall. George McCracken in his work on R.B. Hayes is the source for this fact. I am also interested in this line, as I descend from Cynthia Birchard Taylor, who was the sister of Sophia Birchard, President Hayes mother. Elias Birchard adopted Roger when Roger was 13 mos. old, but his actual patrilineal line would be Cornwall. Too bad we have not yet identified this Cornwall.
