I need some help with a brick wall I have and advice to go forward. My great grandfather is Joseph Mathew Connard. Things I know are: His marriage to my great grandmother (Annie Settle Connard), their children, where they lived (Fayette County WV), and where he passed away (Elkins WV). Not much is know before this. Three different censuses have 3 different years he arrived in the U.S. I have seen 2 dates for his date of birth (1855 and 1860). Censuses say he migrated from Austria. His marriage record is the only place I have seen parents names (Joseph and Martha) so don't know how accurate they are. Also the marriage record to Annie has him listed as a widow. No birth record has been found. The rest that is known is mainly stories with nothing being able to be proven. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to approach this brick wall. I have been doing family research for 2-3 years, so I still have alot to learn. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
