Russ,I am trying to link, if possible, my John to, or eleminate the Pa. John Beard, d. 1826 in Williamson Co, Tn & his sons Aaron, Moses & Birdnear. I am fairly sure they were born in or around Spartanburg, SC - - Do you know or know of the Beard`s that now live in & around Wayne Co, Miss, that are descendants of your Moses. Also, there is a Beard that is the Pres. of a Gen Club in Baldwin Co, Al (he lives in Lillian) that is the GGrandson of your Moses. I will get his name and address my next time down, if you want (you may already know him) - - I would appreciate any info on my line you may happen to run across."BO"
