Stephen Gard is a familiar name. I might be able to help you more than you could help me. I wrote a biography of Alexander Guard who was Jeremiah's son. Jeremiah was possibly an uncle to your Daniel. The biography talks about the Gards and Keens going to Ohio as well. They stopped in Fayette County, Pa. and stayed with cousins (Gards) before heading on. Those cousins may be in line with yours but I would have to look it up again in my notes. We visited Morristown several times to do research and I bought several books concerning the area. We also went to the Historical Society which unfortunately has more about their victorian era than their most important timeframe, the Revolutionary War. Geo. Washington only camped there twice during the war with his wife no less. They were an important position to camp the troops during the winter as well as keep an eye on the enemy. Have you heard of Gershom Gard (Alexander's cousin)? I think his father was Daniel and he may have had a brother Daniel which may be your Daniel. I will check out your ancestry site and try to compare with what I have and get back to you. I am about to go to Cincinnati to the library and do research today for more of my husband's line. I am working on my third biography. Talk later. Melba
