Hi Russell, My great grandfather was Moses Beard born in 1810 in Cumberland County, NC. He died in Wayne County< MS. in 1864. It would appear that we are both desended from Moses. Which of Moses's 17 children didyou descend from? If you desire, I will be happy to exchange "TREE INFORMATION" with you My father was William David, son of Franktillman son of Moses. Frank tillman was the first of moses's children born in Mississippi.
