Neal, I have tried other members of John Beard born in 1765 Pa. I hope that you may be able to help me.
I like to document my family line and have come across a few thing that need to be corrected .
I think that John Beard born 1765 is a borther to William born in July 1760, in Pennsylvania however he did not died May 20, 1809. I have court records to prove my case. It has been told by family members that William married Margeart Blackstock now this I have not been able to prove.
The Abstracts of Revolutionary War pension Files has ; William Beard S2981, South Carolina, applied April 6,1846 Lincoln County, Tennessee aged 86, born July 1760 at Carlisle Town Pennesylvania, States his wife died in Alabama, He lived 4 mile from the town 96 in South Carolina at enter and after the war lived there then remove to Tiger River in South Carolina , then to Georgia ,back to South Carolina , then to Blount County, Alabama, then in 1840 moved to Lincoln County , Tennessee, Brothers mented were Robert of Giles County, Tennessee & Francis of lincoln County, Tennessee.on the 1840 census of Lincoln County Tennessee William was living with Francis. William son, James A. Berad states William died 6-4-1847 leaving no widow nor children except him & he applied in 1851 in Lumpkin County, Tennessee but lived in Union County, Ga. On the 1850 Census of Union County, Georgia James A. Beard and wife was living one house down from my ggg grandfather Isaac Ingram his son William Jasper married Mary Ann Beard daughter of Lewis Barton Beard Capt in the Civil War. Lewis is James A. beard son also living one house down from him on the same census. As I have said I can not get any one to tell me were they got that William died May 5,1809. I have asked but they will not reply. Do you have the answer? Glenda
