Hi Todd, I also am from the William R. Bean family from Gallatin County Ill. near the town of Ridgeway. This family later moved to Ark. My grandmother is Eliza Ethel Powell they had 5 boys and one girl. Are we related? I have just begun my search and you are the most likley person yet. Please respond one way or the other. Thanks Francis Cecile Bean/Bekowsky Concord, California email@example.com Stands for Red, White and Blue. I am looking forward to talking to you.
