This is an update of my original post on October 26, 1998.
Update on my Beards: Elmira Adeline Beard and Stephen Jasper Farris were married and lived in Coffee County, Alabama and are my great-grandparents. Their daughter was my paternal grandmother.
Elmira was the daughter of William Francis Beard and Eliza Elizabeth Donaldson.
The parents of William F. Beard were James and Elizabeth Beard. Siblings of William were: Adolphus C., Nancy K., John H., James E., Martha Ann Rebecca, Joseph J. S., Robert B., Elizabeth Louise....... If you are connected here, I would love to hear from you!
