I am seeking information about Alfred N. BEARD who was born in Burton, Geauga Co., OH, and married Lucretia Page BISSELL in Portage Co., OH in 1836. Their daughter, Cordelia was born 29 November 1837 in Ohio. I believe they had another daughter who was born 10 July 1841. Lucretia and the baby both died in August 1841.
On 11 January 1842, Alfred married Orilla SMITH in Geauga Co., OH. They had at least three children who were born in Burton, Geauga Co., OH: Lydia (b 1843), who married D. W. THOMAS; Abi (b 1845), who married A. B. PHILLIPS; and Nancy Thalia (b 1847), who married Edward Craig BARROWS.
Alfred and his family moved from Ohio to Champaign County (probably Rantoul) between 1850 and 1860. A son was born to Nancy Thalia and Edward Craig BARROWS in Champaign County in 1881. After that, the BARROWS family may have gone to Hansen, Nebraska.
Does anyone know where Alfred and Orrila died or where they are buried? Or where their children ended up? I have been searching for Alfred for years and would be grateful for any help. Thanks!
