Joseph Beard was the son of George M. & Rhodanah (Galeeener) Beard. Joseph was born 22 Dec. 1817 in Warren Co., Ohio & married Mary Ann Stroup on 15 Nov. 1838, but I have never been able to find where?
Joseph and Mary resided in the Warren, Huntington Co., Indiana area from their marriage until around 1868 when they moved to Illinois. Joseph died there in 1872 and Mary, shortly after, returned to Warren where she died on 17 Feb. 1890.
Joseph & Mary had 4 children: (1) Maria Beard (b. 1840) married Martin DeLoss. (2) Andrew Beard (b. 1842) (3) Rhoda Beard (b. 1844) married David O. Ewart. (4) Lucinda (Lucy) Beard (b. 1849) married Franklin Slagle.
All of the children returned to the Huntington Co., Indiana area.
What I have been searching for is the County in Illinois where Joseph died and is buried, can anybody help me with this?
