Shawna, I will look into how to get a hold of this book for you. In the meantime, here is info on Isabelle Walker. I'll just quote from the book.
Ahab Bean, son of William Bean Jr., and his first wife, Rachell Ball, was born Jan. 10, 1778, Washington County, TN. He spent his early days in Grainger Co., Tenn. He was on the 1801 Grainger Co., TN. tax list, but owning no property. He married in 1809 to Isabelle Walker, she was born October 24, 1790, daughter of Felix Walker and Susannah Robertson, sister of Rosamond who was the wife of Russell Bean. They left Grainger Co., shortly after their marriage by covered wagon and ox team. Their first child was born May 18, 1810 in St. Charles, Missouri.
They went ot Galena, Ill. in 1826. Located in Benton, Wisconsin in 1827. The 1850 census shows that he and his faimly were on a farm in the town of Highland, Iowa Co.
Then in the back of the book it has Ahab Bean Family Bible records, which say:
Births: Ahab Bean was borned January 10, A.D. 1778 Isabel Bean was borned A.D. October 24, 1790
It lists names of children, then says:
The Ahab Bean Bible Records were copied by Helen Hird Prehm, a descendant of Ahab Bean. This Bible now in possession of Mr. Frank J. Bean, Elwood, Nebraska, a grandson of Ahab and Isabel Walker.
It lists some deaths including Ahab and Isabel as follows:
Died on the 12th day of Dec. a 1/2 past 11 o'clock Ahab Bean, aged 79 years and eleven months and 2 days, 1857. Isabel Bean died 15 Jan. 1856.
There are a few marriages listed however, dealing with just Ahab and Isabel, it says:
Ahab Bean was married in the year A.D. 1809 to Isabelle Walker.
This info, also includes info on their children, which I haven't included.
