Compiled by me recently and just wanted to share even though it looks like this board isn't very active.
Thought someone might drop by that would like the info.
The CANARDS keep getting bigger in my notes, so thought I would post
what I have and hopefully it can help someone else. Feel free to ask
questions if you have any.
I have a little more on some of the families below.
So many of YOU all have been helpful to me, that I want to give it
back. I finally got my Canards together, so it will make sense. But
you will have
to excuse the format, it's the only one I have until all this gets
On the CANARD FAMILY.......
We think that Phillip Canard ca 1780/90, d. Dec 1830, had three
siblings, one being David C. Canard who married Lydia Bundy, a George
that is shown later living with one of his sons, and a sister Sarah.
We don't know who their parents are, but suspect that a Walter Canard
might be their father. There are many variations in the spelling of
too, which makes tracing hard, but most of it has been done on the net
through the census, from info passed along through others, or from the
library both at Salt Lake, and online or in person. I'm just
compiling the notes that I have made since 1997 from various sources
to share with you.

David C. Canard, the other brother, not only married Lydia Bundy, but
he also married Sarah BROOKS which ties him into that family as well.
I don't have a list of other names associated with this family,
however maybe someone on the list has that information they can share
with me. I have probably emailed with someone on it already, however
I'm not putting a finger on who that was at the moment.
Hope this helps someone out there.
