Deborah, I have no clue about a Sarah. I'm just starting out from what I found out from my grandmother, and all I have is Robert Lee Beard (birth unknown) married Mary Halbrook ( birth also unknown). They had a son named James Matthew Beard (birth date 6-15-1897). He married Maude Thurman(birthdate 8-1-1906).That then leads to my grandmoher. If you find out any information I would love to hear from you. Also, after I get a little farther I may be able to help you until then though I'm stumped.
