Hello Beverly,

I know we have corresponded in the past, and I sincerely appreciated the information you provided. In recent months, I had placed aside my research on my Lockard line, and now I can't seem to locate the information you had shared. I am terribly sorry about that. I was wondering if you could perhaps post some information on your Lockards, again. My Lockard connection is through Elias Hoover and Catherine Lockard. Catherine was born 12 Mar 1838 in Pennsylvania, and married Elias 13 May 1855 in Elkhart County, Indiana. They had the following children:

Ephraim Henry HOOVER b: 10 Jul 1860 in Van Buren Township, Kosciusko County, Indiana
Ira HOOVER b: 19 Mar 1865 in Kosciusko County, Indiana
Francis Marion HOOVER b: 15 May 1863 in Kosciusko County, Indiana
Melissa D. HOOVER b: 20 Sep 1856 in Kosciusko County, Indiana
Barbary Ellen HOOVER b: 14 Jan 1859 in Van Buren Township, Kosciusko County, Indiana
Silas HOOVER b: 16 Feb 1867 in Kosciusko County, Indiana
Sarah HOOVER b: 31 Oct 1869 in Kosciusko County, Indiana
Rebecca HOOVER b: 31 Mar 1872 in Rock Creek Township, Dunn County, WI
Enoch Elias HOOVER b: 9 May 1874 in Rock Creek Town, Dunn County, WI
Elisa "Bill" HOOVER b: 10 Jun 1876 in Rock Creek Town, Dunn County, WI
Edward HOOVER b: 10 Nov 1877 in Rock Falls , Wisconsin
Joe HOOVER b: 6 Aug 1879 in Rock Falls , Wisconsin

I am descended from the daughter Barbary Ellen Hoover, who married David Crist (where my surname is derived from). My Catherine Lockard is the daughter of David Lockard and Catherine UNKNOWN. According to the 1880 Census for Rock Creek, Dunn County, Wisconsin (where Elias Hoover and Catherine Lockard eventually settled and raised their family), Catherine's father was born in Ireland and her mother was born in Pennsylvania. I have no further information beyond this. Do you know where my Lockard clan fits into the greater Lockard family tree? I am desperate for information on this branch of my own ancestry (especially since it's Irish, and I'm very anxious to pin down my Irish/Celtic roots), and would be very grateful for any info you could provide for me.

Thank you so much,
Sarah Crist
