I do not have any information beyond my Ruth Bean. I know that her father's name was Stephen. Somehow she ended up in Franklin Co., Indiana. I have seen the Louis Bean that you are talking about but have not been able to connect the two families. Have you checked out the Levi Bean family in Franklin Co. He had quite a few children. This may be a place to start. Sorry I couldn't help you but I will let you know if I find anythingthat might help. Thanks for your reply.
