Thomas Stone Beard born May 4, 1900 is my great grandfather.His dad's name was William Beard.I don't know when he was born, where he was born, who he married or anything else.In fact I came here to try to find out info on William Beard.
Glyn Doyle Beard is my grandfather, he was born June 10, 1927, died March 2, 1987.The Hensley you referred to in your post is Marjorie Earnestine Hensley (my grandmother), born July 11, 1934, died February 5, 1993.
Charles Dean Beard is my dad.He was born August 8, 1953 in Tennessee.Robert and Cary were also both born in Tennessee.
Are you my dad's (Charles') half brother?
In addition to Thomas Stone Sr's 3 children you have listed, I have that there were 2 more (are they from another marriage?):
Romine Beard b. May 27, 1932 Vivian Rebecca Beard b. September 30, 1922
Also, I have that Francis's first name was Ila (Ila Francis Beard).
I have more information on the Gatlin family.
I will add the information you gave to my family tree.
