We are searching for our fourth-great grandfather, a Revolutionary War soldier, who was a Beard. We are interested in knowing about this plaque to which you referred - where is it? what state, county, etc? The information I have is - William E. Beard, son of Rev. War soldier. Lived at Mt Harman, Bedford County, TN Wm. E. died 10/6/1845. I have lots of information from Wm. E. down, just looking for his father, who might be this John, as Wm. E's first son is named John (he's my great-great-great grandfather).
