Clarissa Agard - She’s a Mystery

Clarissa Agard, born 15 August 1780 in Litchfield, Connecticut, was the first child of Noah and Lucina (Jones) Agard.  In 1814 she moved with her family to Catherine Township, in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. Her father farmed the land and her brother, Samuel, ran a sawmill. 

According to the Agard Family Bible pages, Clarissa married Charles Everts of Connecticut on 27 December 1818.  In further researching Clarissa and Charles, I found Charles and Clarissa on the 1850 Federal Census living in the Town of Hector, Tompkins County, New York.  I found Charles and Clarissa buried in the Everts and Matthews Cemetery, Schuyler County, New York.

One problem: continued research into the lives of Clarissa and Charles indicates that Charles Everts of Connecticut married a Clarissa PECK. 

I thought possibly Clarissa married a Peck before she married Charles Everts, but at this point I find no evidence of that.

She’s still a mystery.
