I have a Mary Beard in my family that lived in Polk, and Bradley county Tn. She was born in Murray Co Ga. Her parents were A.I. and Cynthia Beard. I do know that she had a daughter named Clara. On the 1900 Murray Co census she was living with her mother along with her 3 children. But I have no idea where she wentfrom there. Her brother George was my great grandfather.
