All I have on Mary Word is that she died3-23-1903. Her husband, William Thomas Beard(5-23-1836 to 2-4-1896) was buried in Martling in NE Alabama. I'm pretty sure she was buried there too. I was there a week ago and may have photos of both headstones. They had 6 kids, including my grandfather. William Thomas Beard's dad wasArthur Campbell Beard's(3-18-1810-1877. He and Pherriba had 8 kids). And his parents were William Thomas Beard and Mary Hamilton Campbell, who died 1852. All I have on WTBis that his father was Thomas Beard, of Virginia. I have a lot on Mary Hamilton Campbell's ancestors, if you want. How are you related to Arthur Campbell Beard?
