Here are the notes that I have in my file for Whitlock Bean.I also drew the conclusion that Elizabeth was probably the daughter of Francis Floyd.
Whitlock Bean was called "Lockey".
Rowan County, North Carolina, McCubbins files:
Deed Book 24, p. 863, 7 Jan 1820 The heirs of deceased Francis Floyd (who are) William Thomson, Lockey Been, Frederick Carnum(sp?), John Floyd and William Briggs let William A. Gallemore all of Rowan County, North Carolina, have 120 A on the bank of Flat Swamp next Peter Sumey for $204.20, witnessed by John Briggs and John Peacock and proved by the latter in May 1820.

Whitlock Bean, wife Elizabeth and their children are listed on p. 355 of the 1850 Davidson County, North Carolina Census.Living in this same neighborhood are many Floyd families.Elizabeth wife of Whitlock may be a daugher of Francis Floyd who died in 1820.

Whitlock Bean and his family are listed on p. 940 of the 1860 Davidson County, North Carolina Census.According to this census record, Whitlock Bean cannot read or write, but his wife Elizabeth can.
A real estate sale notice posted in the Weekly Standard (Raleigh, North Carolina) on 10 December 1862 names a parcel of land south of the road from Healing Springs to Jackson Hill bordered by several persons including "Locky Bean" and "Peter Bean".This would indicate that Whitlock Bean was living in 1862.
