In doing my research, I have found that my great great great grandmother's name was Louise Bogard; and she married a James Coleman. I am just wondering if you had some decendency of this John R. Bogard, so that If he was a relative of mine; I could make the connection. Thanks~ Jackson Edward Wilson
