I'm not sure how much I can help you with because I have just started looking up my beard side of the family but here is all I know. In the williamsburg burial there is a george beard next to james and wife elisbeth he was 3 when he died. I think edward died in 1995 he is my grandfather.My sister and I was just talkin about the kids of james and she was wondering if Peggy is still alive? Do you know which of the kids are still alive? please let me know any info you have and maybe I can get some info from my sister and we can share she is the oldest of my family and remembers more of the Beards than I do Like I said I'm just now starting my family tree for the Beard's.
