James Birchard was born to John Birchard and Christy Ann Andrews Birchard as the second son who survived infancy/early childhood. [1][2]

He married Elizabeth Beckwith on 17 March 1697.[2][3]

They had the following children:

Elizabeth, b. September 1697[3][2]
James, b. May, 1699[3][2]
Sarah, b. July 10, 1701. d. August 1701[3][2]
Matthew, b. 5 December 1702[3][2]
John, b. 12 April, 1704[3][2]
Phebe, b. October, 1705[3][2]
Sarah, b. 11 October 1707[3][2]
Jonah, b. 9 October 1709[3][2]
Rebecca, b. 17 October 1717. d. 1719.[3][2]
Daniel, b. 9 May 1718[3][2]

Note the long gap between Jonah and Rebecca. It seems there should have been some children born in eight years, but none are found in either source.
