Have just finished reading the postings and responses regarding the William Bean from Scotland Descendants.I, too, am a descendant.
With regard to the Bean book by Bernie Bean, there is much debate on the authenticity of some (many) of the entries therein.A Jim D. Beene at firstname.lastname@example.org (last email I have for him) says beware of what Bernie Bean published and also beware of what John of Exeter has published.You might want to check actual documentation before adopting this printed material.
My lineage is:William Bean m. Naomi Bates; William Bean Jr m. Celia Wyatt; Walter Bean m. Elizabeth McGaillard; John Henry Bean m. Elizabeth Awalt; Michael Marion Bean m. Emaline Elizabeth Mabray; John Jacob Bean m. Malinda Alfred King; Herbert H. Bean m. Martha Elizabeth (Bessie) Adkins; Loleita Bean m. Paul Whiteis; Pauleta - this is me.
I'm willing to share information and what little documentation I have.
Please reply to my email PJWClawson@msn.com as I don't often search the web.Looking forward to hearing from anyone doing this research.
Ken Brown has a goodly amount of knowledge and information, too.
