My Beards are listed in the 1850 census in Tippah Co., MS. These Beards are A. Beard (Augustus) age 35 Eliner, age 29, Henry A. age 13, John age 12, Richard age 10, Angeline age 7, Eliza age 4, Thomas age 1 and an Ann age 75 from VA. A. Beard, Eliner, John, & Richard were born in NC. The rest were born in MS. I know my grandmother's father was Henry Augustus born in 1837 in NC. My grand mother was Martha Mattie born in Union CO. MS in 1880.Her brothers: Will, Hal, Book, Nay & sister Nell. There may have been other siblings. I would like to find data about these Beards in NC or Va. It is possible they were related to the Augustus & daughter Alice Augustus I saw posted here. Some of these Beards left MS & went to Texas. I would like to find data in VA& NC concerning this family.I had an aunt who's middle name was Augustus.
