The Beard I have is William(Belle)Beard and his son William(Billy). The son is listed as being from Virginia. They came to Louisiana in sometime in the late 1700's. William married Marie Coleman( second wife). Don't know who his first wife was. His son William married Adelaide Gilchrist. I know the parents and grandparents and siblings of the women but nothing on the men.There is a listing of a Thomas Beard who married Bridget Kennon on the same page as William and I suspect he could be a brother to the first William.I know their parents and where the country they are from. they also have a son named Charles.I was hoping to find a connection to another Beard in that state.
