Mr. Piard was born in France. While he was an infant his parents moved to Philadelphia and Mr. Piard learned the wheelwright trade there. Afterward he took up photography and he moved to Jersey City to engage in that business. He had a big trade at Jersey city at one time, but competition and the introduction of new photographic methods caused his business to decline. Forty years ago he moved to Oceanport and he had since followed the trade of carpenter and boat builder. He was twice married. His first wife was from Woodbridge. She lived but a few years and he married a Jersey City woman. His second wife died at Ocanport seven months ago. He leaves two sons, Barron V. Piard, who is a fish dealer in Philadelphia, and Joseph B. Piard, who went to Australia several years ago and whose present whereabouts are unknown.
