Received Addie (ARNOLD) BEARD's obituary July 2004 after a paid search from the Cortland Free Library, 32 Church St., Cortland, NY, 13045.
I'm researching this ARNOLD/BEARD family.Hoping to discover Addie L Arnold & George Beard Jr's date of marriage, as well as George Beard Jr's.date of birth. This Arnold family is well documented & published online.Some to my credit most not.However, the Beard family is not.At least that I can find.This couple & some of George Beard Jr's family (parents & brothers are buried in the Village of Cortland Cemetery and is transcribed online.
I'm hoping to connect with other researchers for this family.A paid research from the Herkimer County Historical Society did not discover this couples marriage application or date.
According to George Beard Jr's mother obituary, Emma (Ashman) Beard was born 1836 England.This family came to Little Falls, Herkimer County, NY about 1893 where they conducted a large farm there.I also found them in the 1880 NY Census, in Manheim, Herkimer County, NY, with Emma & George Beard (Sr.) and their children: Giles, George, and Benjamin Beard, & a niece Matildy Beard.
Next, I found Addie Beard on the 1930 NY Census, Truxton, Cortland County, age 69, age 19 at first marriage.Addie was living with her brother-in-law Benjamin Beard, born in Wales, parents born in England.
Any additional information for Addie L ARNOLD & her husband George Beard Jr will be appreciated.
Does anyone know how Fern Elizabeth (SEACORD) who married George C. Beard, is related to my ARNOLD/BEARD family?Fern's parents according to her 1923 obituary are Mr. & Mrs. Frank N. SEACORD, of Homer, New York. Fern is buried in the same BEARD plot in Truxton.
Also would like to learn more about Addie's brother Irving Arnold, his wife may be Minnie (Whallen) Arnold.
