Hello..."cousin" ! My name is Wes Jones (Raleigh, NC). My great-great-grandfather is John Friederick Foard (through my mother's mother Ruth Partee Foard). John F Foard was the younger brother of Robert Wyatt Foard. My research has confirmed that John went to live with older brother Robert at the age of three because he was "orphaned". Not sure what happened to parents Frederick and Eunice. My interest is in the J F Foard portion of the tree but would be happy to exchange any info on either side as is available. I have a fair amount on the JF Foard side. Wes PS...I am also a CW reenactor and family "historian" and was already aware of Noah and Frederick's service with the 1st NC Cav. Frederick was Brig Gen Rufus Barringer's aide-de-Camp in 1864. My great-grandfather served with the 49th NC (Catawba County).
