Would love to confirm or disprove that Mary Melvina Speaks was the daughter of James B. Speaks and Margaret Higdon. She was born circa 1825 Ky and married Stanislaus Ignatius Beaven in Meade Co. KY in the 1850's. James Speaks is listed as her father. They moved to Daviess Co. Ky. where her husband died in 1879.
