Hi Terry,

Lyman and Malinda can be found in numerous instances at Familysearch.org.

A quick perusal shows:

1870-Albion Twp
Clearly shows they moved from Wisconsin about 1857-1858
There are Codners next door and a Perry Card on the following page which would seem to be an older brother, also from WI in 1857-1858.
Lyman Card M 43 New York
Malinda Card F 33 New York
Emiline Card F 16 Wisconsin
Adaline Card F 14 Wisconsin
Julia Card F 12 Iowa
Hannah Card F 9Iowa
Irving Card M 4 Iowa
Lydia Card F 1 Iowa

The 1860 census finds them in Albion with Lyman's father Silas. Again Codners and more Cards are nearby with not only Perry Card and family but a Willard Card. I only looked on the page before and the page after Lyman in all instances. There may be more.

Lyman Card M 33 New York
Melinda Card F 23 New York
Emeline Card F 7 Wis
Adaline Card F 4 Wis
Julia Card F 2 Iowa
Peter Wightman M 24 New York
Silas Card M 69 New York

They are in 1880 as Card but the 1900 has been transcribed as Cord.

1900 Albion Twp, Parkersburg PO
Lyman born June 1826 New York, married 37 years
Malinda born Jan 1836 New York, mother of 9, 7 still living.
Julia born Mar 1858 Iowa
Son Irving and a Codner also on same page.

Lyman is listed as being born in 1827 on his death certificate.

There are quite a few marriages on Familysearch as well as a large selection of other records.

One of the bits of information on the Butler County IAGenWeb site of interest is:
Merlinda Chard, 63 years, 9 months and 27 days old, died November 19, 1900 in Albion. She was buried in family burying grounds. Where the burial grounds can be found is unknown. This information is from the Butler County Death Records. Correction: Her name is Malinda Codner Card, wife of Lyman Card and she is not buried alone, but in the family cemetery (Codner Cemetery) next to her husband, near her brother and many other family members.

You should be able to track your family back quite a bit based on what I have seen. Let me know if you need further assistance.
