Samuel Leard/Lard/Laird in late-1700s, early 1800s New York

I would appreciate hearing from anyone researching or who has researched the Leard/Lard/Laird family in New York state in the late-1700s and early 1800s. In a 1980s genealogical query a now-deceased researcher indicated that a Samuel Leard/Lard/Laird moved to Randolph Co. IL from NY in the early 1800s with his son, Isaac and daughter, Mary Ann. I am trying to rule out this potential Samuel from being connected to Margaret Leard who married James H. McDonough in Randolph Co. IL in 1817. I have a SC church record that says she’s connected to the Samuel Leard/Lard/Laird families in Abbeville Co./District SC, but I cannot find a definitive connection to those Leards since there are other Leard/Lard/Laird families in the records, i.e., too many Leards + too few records = much confusion. Rather than proving a connection, I am trying to disapprove other potential connections (other Leard/Lard/Laird families). ANY information about a NY Samuel Leard/Lard/Laird would be very much appreciated.
