My g-great grandfather was Francis Marion Beard. He had a brother named Frank. Francis was born in Monroe County, Ohio. His son Marion(b.1877) was married in Ardmore, Oklahoma 1901. I don't have any dates for Frank. My grandfather Marion was an outcast from family, because he married an Indian. Other siblings of Marion were Walter, Winifred, Bill, Thomas,Dora and Daniel(b.1894).
