In the 1860 Census in Wyalusing, Grant County, Wisconsin, Dwelling #283, family #274 Jaoab Lard is listed as age 66 a farmer, wife Elsie age38, son Jonas age 29( from first marriage to Margaret Todd), children Margaret, John W., Louis H., William J., Josiah, Joseph. Also listed are Thomas Lard age 52 from Kentucky and Dennison Lard 19 from Missouri.

In the 1850 Census in Sangamon County Dwelling 158,family 153, Head of Household Robin Jones age 49, Tabitha (Lard) Jones age 55 , Alexander age 30 Drury age 20, Calivin age 17, Thomas Lord age 48, Dennison Lord age 9, Amanda Jones age 20.

It is fortunate that Dennison has such an unusual first name.If it were John, I wouldn't be as sure that they are the same in spite of the last name being spelled Lord in 1850 and Lard in 1860.
