Yes, there is a book, A Beard Mosaic by Virginia Beard Astrino? I have the book but can't Locate rite now. Let me know what line you are working & will see if it helps. It didn't help me any. Send to my e-mail rather that the BFF and you will get ans. sooner. Thanks Helen Beard Dale. You know we all originated from the 13 colonies, so we were all there at one time probably. Look forward to hearing from you and the line you are researching. If you can give me names, dates,etc. I will check. We were here way, way back.
