The William LORDs that you refer to are about the right age that George and Agnes (GRAY) LORD would have had children. All I know is that they lived in Wayne Co. Do you the parentage of either of your Williams?

Children (born MI):

I am compiling a genealogy on the descendants of William Hillard, who settled in Duxbury of the Plymouth Colony in 1635.

Check out my web-site for the ancestry of Grace I. Hilliard. (note spelling is hillard not hilliard). I would appreciate any information you might have on the aabove Lord family and their descendants.
