    Timothy Gard, son of John and Angelilah Gard, was born about a mile and a half north of Kinderhook, Feb. 10, 1834. His father died when he could hardly remember, and his mother when he was but 13 years of age. He was left upon the world to make his own living at an early age. He lived for three years with "Uncle Jackie Cook" who lived just on the west side of the village. After he was 15 years old he began to work and earn money for himself and he later bought a farm, which is now owned by Mrs. Reinhardt. He received his education in a log schoolhouse that stood on a lot just north of the residence of the late Dr. Penick and near the home of Hardy Bell. Mr. Gard was married to Sarah Sherve, Dec. 19, 1854. To them three children were born. Mrs. Mary Wilson was the only one who lived to womanhood. Mrs. Gard died Feb. 20, 1903. After this "Uncle Tim", as he was called by every one, made his home with his daughter and granddaughter, Mrs. H. T. Jones in the Blair Hotel in Barry. Mr. Gard filled the office of assessor three times, and that of Collector three times. He was also Treasurer of the Cincinnati School, District No. 1. He was a member of the Presidential Voter's Club in 1856. He cast his first vote for President Buchanan.
