Looking for informaiton about the Beard Family in Fountain County, Indiana. I have an ancestor from that area, Martha J. Ayles. Wondered if that could be named after her relative. Can't seem to find her parents. In the 1850 census, she was living with another family. She was listed as Martha Ails. She lived with Charly and Julia Stewart. Her siblings (it appears) are scattered with other families. Such as: Payton Ayles (15) with Harvey or Henry And Eliza Crane(I think) Emily Ayles (12) With Samuel Beard, Harriet Ayles (7) With George and Sarah Beard. Wondering if anyone knows anything about these families.
