I am looking for infromation on theBeard family in Carlisle Town Pennsylvania. In court WilliamBeard stated that he was born there and gave on July,1760 ,it was written down as 1860 in error. When he entered intoservice He was living 4 miles from the town of the 96(ninety-six) district in South Carolina -and sence the Revolutionary War , he has lived at a great many places, in frist at home near ninty six district, Tiger River , South Carolina, moved to Georgia, back to South Carolina to Blount County Alabama, From there to Lincoln County, Tn. He sreved under Capt. John Irwin as a guard at Whitehall which was his mother brother. I am hoping that some one will know who William fahter is and he married a gril from the Irwin family.
