I am looking for Delilah Beard's parents and siblings. Delilah Beard was b. in Ohio or Kentucky btw. 1801-1802. On the 1860 census she stated that she was b. KY, but on the 1850 census she stated that she was b. Ohio. In 1880 her three living children stated that both their mother and father were b. Ohio. Since Kentucky came up at all and her husband and children were b. Ohio, I believe that Delilah was either b. KY or that her family came to Ohio from Kentucky very shortly before Delilah was born. The Snider family lived in Ross County before Fayette was formed and also had ties to Highland county, so Delilah could be related to Beard or Baird families in Fayette, Ross or Highland County in Ohio.
1.DELILAH BEARD was born Abt. 1801-1802 in Ohio or Kentucky, and died 09 Feb 1862 in Poe, Marion twp, Allen, IN.She married JOHN SNIDER 12 Jun 1820 in OH,
Fayette co., son of HENRY SNIDER and ELIZABETH HESSER.He was born Abt. 1801 in Ohio, and died 27 May 1868 in Poe, Marion twp, Allen, IN.
