Omer is such an unusual name that I decided that your Omer may be one related to my direct ancestor. I show an Omer Beard, b. 10 May 1875 in Jackson Township, Decatur County, Indiana to Evan L and Mary Williams Beard. My records show that he married Effie C. (?) abt 1900 in Missouri. I know that the family emigrated from Indiana to Kansas about 1880 or shortly thereafter. Omer's sister, Ida Belle Beard was married in Medicine Lodge, Kiowa Co., KS in 1892 to Allen Colfax Cline. I am not sure where Evan and Mary settled in Kansas but they were in Kiowa Co. in the 1890's. If this helps, let me know and I can send on additional iformation about Evan and Mary Beard.
