I am researching a new line. All I have is my g grandmothers death certificate so I can sure a lot of help. It states: Anna Mary (Whitehill)Beard, b: 1856 Ohio, father was JOHN R WHITEHILL, no data. mother Margaret Helm or Helms b: Penn.
Anna married William Beard and may have lived for awhile in Nebraska. The Beards lived in Illinois before moving to Kansas where William and Anna Whithill Beard died.
