I went to school at Jackson with a Fred Beard. Jackson is on Highway 24. Jackson wasgrades 1 thru 11. In Abt 1950 they changed , grade 9 thru 11 went to Screven County High School and added to it grade 12. Fred went to Jackson until about 8th and he loved to play football and would go into Sylvania to play since Jackson did not have a team. I lost track of him and he did not graduate with our class in 1954. I am also related to the Beards generations back thru the Mock Familytree. My Mother is Emily Mock Willaims and her grandmother was Susan Emily Lee Mock. I beleive the Lee's married into the Beard family.
