I don't know if I'm related to these Bearden's listed by Glenda, but I thought I'd contribute because of the names involved.
My middle name is Ansil, so is my fathers and I believe my Grandfathers' aswell.
My Fathers name is James Bearden. My Grandfathers name was also James Bearden (Fort Worth TX). My Great Grandfathers name was Marion Bearden (born in Delight, AK). My Great Grandmothers name was Perny Daves.
My Great Grandparents had 6 children.James, Earl, Jay and Alfred (he had a heart attack).There were also 2 girls, but my father cannot remember their names.
My fathers family records were burned by his cousin named Tinky (?).
I am starting to research my fathers side, if any of the information I listed matches anything...please let me know!
