What I have seen the children of elijah and Margaret Beard Friend are Elijah, Melinda, Bethina, Elizabeth, Andrew, kessiah, JohnB.Elijah and Margaret Beard are a set of my great grandparentsMargaret later married Rev. John Riason and had more children but unsure of their names. Children are listed in Elijah's will.
John B.Friend's childrenas listed on rootsweb.com are Elijah, Harmon, David, Sarah and Reason.But it states that he had 2 wives the first being Rosanna Moore and then later he married another in Jersey County IL, this is also listed on rootsweb. One site does list a Daniel.
Was wondering if you had any info on Margaret Beards family.I have a copy of a permission letter for her to marry elijah.it is signed by a Thom (John) Beard and Margret Beard, her parents, but don't know anything about them.Was wondering if you had any Beard info?Since John B is a son of Margaret and Elijah's,figured her father's name must be John. (but could be wrong).:)Gayle
