Their son, my ggg grand father,Asa Foster Bean, b. 1793 d. 1879 Ripton, VT is my ggg grand father.He married Catherine Gee, from Marlow, NH they had John Bean, b. Mar 28, 1835 Durham, Quebec.
John, my gg grand father, lived in Ripton, VT with his father Asa on a farm, lived in Bethel, VT and went into the VT 16th Vol Regiment (I have the war docs), lived in Randolph, VT and married Electra Preston (family from John Preston/Presson of York, Maine).John and Electra had 3 children:two girls (have their info) and my great grand father, Herbert Henry Bean m. Edith Lucy Tarbell. They had a number of children born in Randolph, VT.
Do you have any more info on Colonel John Bean ?Someone has told me and I have not been able to verify, that Colonel John Bean's father was a John Bean b. abt 1718-1725, Merrimack, NH, his father was Jeremiah to John Bean of Exeter, NH.
I also understand Bernie Bean's book has new editions with more info, do you know if Colonel John is in the book?
I have been in contact with Clan MacBean for info and a woman was searching, but she kept searching in Durham, Ontario, Canada for my Bean's which I informed her was incorrect and Ihaven't heard back.
