I posted the above message here...because a researcher might be looking for a ROBERT C BEARD.. mine is in Monroe County ALABAMA and the other listed above is in Monroe County MISSISSIPPI!
The parents of Robert C. Beard of Monroe County ALABAMA appear to be Corneilius Beard and Margaret Barclay.Cornelius's first name appears to be something like Geo. or Jas or Jno. It is not clearly written. Judge Peters was told that Robert C. Beard married Mary Allen in LOUISIANA and that Mary Jane Beard married Benjamin Wilson in SHELBY COUNTY ALABAMA and Sarah Beard married George R Allen in Shelby County Alabama also.
