Did you want to know the ancestors of Stephen Heard who died in 1815 in
Elbert Co., GA and who married 2nd Elizabeth Darden? Actually Stephen was born in
1740 probably in Sadsbury of Lancaster Co., PA, or in Goochland Co., VA,
depending on when his parents made their probable move from PA to VA.

Stephen's parents are John Heard b ca 1717 probably in County Tyrone,
Northern Ireland and Bridgett Carroll. We have only proof that his mother was
Bridgett, but the evidence is there that she was a Carroll (naming of children in
this branch of the family). After Goochland/Albemarle Co. VA, John and Bridgett
moved to Cumberland Co., NC, and then by 1759 to the colony of GA, St. Paul's
Parish, a part which became Wilkes Co. then Columbia Co., GA. John's will is
recorded in Wilkes Co., signed on 2 Feb 1787, probated about 1788.

John Heard's father was Charles Heard (Sr.) b ca 1691 probably in County
Tyrone, Northern Ireland, wife's name unknown. Charles, Sr., came with family,
including known brothers Stephen (Sr.), George (Sr.), and one whose name is
unknown, to PA about 1720. Charles Sr. moved to Henrico and Goochland/Albemarle
Co., VA, where he died between 4 Aug 1746 and 12 May 1748.
