David, there was a Sarah Ann Beard who married a Sasser (I had found a source that said Jonah, but it certainly could have been Josiah). Sarah Ann was the daughter of William and Mary Ann Rose Beard. The family lived in Wayne County, NC, prior to moving to Randolph County, GA. This Sarah Ann had siblings: Rebecca md Mills H. Jernigan, John T., Barney, William Green, Mary Jane md a Moore, Betsy md John H. Bailey, and Adna Maria. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this is your line.
