Thank you for contacting me about the Beard family. I will give you what little information I have and maybe it will be of help. My George Washington Beard was married to Elizabeth Hyler. Their daughter Artemesia was born in 1819 in Kentucky. She married Thomas Jefferson Brumfield and they had a son named Benjamin Brumfield in 1846 in Kentucky. Benjamin married Josephine Hart and they had a daughte named Artemesia in 1878 in Indiana. Artemesia married John Anderson Shriver and they had a son named Frank Shriver in 1897 in Illinois. Frank was my Grandfather. This is the most basic list of names. I do have more if you would be interested. Good luck in your searching.
