I am searching for any information about Richard Auchard or Orchard, and his wife Mary Hardin. They may have moved to Virginia after 1820 from New York. I don't have a lot of information about Richard and Mary Auchard. I believe they had 6 children. The only one I know the name of is Alexander Hamilton Auchard. He was born around 1816 or 1819. He eventually moved to Illinois and Missouri, and settled in Kansas before his death.

I would like to find information regarding the following Offutts. They are all listed in records as having served in the War of 1812. What I am looking for is additional information on them, as well as the units they served in. For example if anyone could tell me what county the unit was mostly recruited in, when the unit served, what battles if any they were involved in, as well as any person specific information. There were two listings for Eli in the index, I'm unsure if that was an error, if he mustered out and back in, or there were two Eli's. William Offutt 60 Regt. (Minor's) VA Militia; Nathamil Offutt 55 Regt. (Feb - Mar 1815) VA Militia; Eli Offutt 57 Regt. VA Militia; Eli Offutt 57 Regt. VA Militia; and Hamilton Offutt 60 Regt. (Minor's) VA Militia.
