Census

This is based on circumstantial findings and may not be correct.
Any information to prove or disprove this family sheet would be greatly appreciated.
Moses Eckard/Ekert/Eckert etc. is the link in this family line that is questionable.
There were two Moses Eckert/Eckards on 1850 Clay County, IN census and these two have not been
properly identified as to their descendant's.

Information pertaining to John Wesley Eckard/Sarah Jane Steward/Stewart family is correct.
