As I wrote in my earlier posting (#2095) I have an Ernest "Ernie" Bean/Beane who was born Oct. 1898 in Randolph Co. NC (the names Bean and Beane were used by various groups of the same clan). He was the son of Allen Bean (b. Aug 1863) and Mary E. Yow (b. July 1865). Allen and Mary were married 22 Aug 1889 in Randolph Co. NC. Ernest was one of at least 5 children.I have the children of Allen Bean and Mary E. Yow as: Lilac Bean (b. Aug 1890), John Burton Bean (b. Mar 1892), Willie S. Bean (b. Jun 1894), Sallie D. Bean (b. Feb 1896), and Ernest "Ernie" Bean (b. Oct 1898) (all born in Randolph or Montgomery Counties in NC).
Ernest "Ernie" Bean married Mary Cooper on 1 May 1921 in Randolph Co. NC.I do not have any of their children, but the Ernest L. Bean you describe born 21 Apr 1923 and died 15 Jun 1993 is most likely the son of Ernest "Ernie" Bean and Mary Cooper.I am sure you can look up the marriage lisence and the birth certificate to determine the parentage for certain.
Ernest "Ernie" Bean's father, Allen Bean (b. Aug 1863), was the son of Thomas Bean (b. 15 Apr 1829 in Montgomery Co.) and Dicy Cornelison (b. 5 Oct 1835 in Montgomery Co.). Allen was one of 12 children.
As far as ties with the other families you mention: I have a Della Yow who married a Bethel Lucas (b. 1859/60) in Montgomery Co., a Harvey Yow who married Deborah Lucas (b. 1954), a Iris Dewette "Dewie" Yow (b. 31 Oct 1898) who married Calvin Harrison Bean on 24 May 1919 in Randolph Co. (Calvin was born on 29 Sep 1893), a Amelia Yow who died 1 Nov 1965 and who married James Sidney Bean before 1914 (James Sidney Bean was born 28 Dec 1889), and a Allie Udora Yow (b. 23 1909, d. 22 Oct 1977) who married Thomas Calvin Bean before 1930 (Thomas was born 11 Nov. 1899 in Randolph Co.)
As far as Luther, I have a Ervin Luther who married Mary Bean (Mary Bean was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin Bean b. 1873 and Cora Newsome b. 1885), a Charles Calvin Luther who married Mary Lewallen on 5 May 1829 in Randolph Co., and a Grace Luther who married Cecil Lucas (b. 1917 in Randolph Co.).
As far as Lawrence, I only have a Eliza Lawrence(b. 3 Nov 1884, d. 6 Nov 1965) who married Carl A. Lewallen on about 1906 (Carl was born 29 Jan 1884).
