I am looking for information on Edward Beard. He appears on the 1850 census in Tippah Co MS. He is listed in the household of Mrs. Mary Malone age 57 b. ALA. also listed are Martha Ann Malone, John W Malone (both b. ALA), Jacob Beard, Edward Beard (both b. ILL) and Jesse Beard (b. MO). I am hoping this is my great-great-grandfather John Edward Beard (b. 10-12-1833(?) Ill).
