Looks like Adam may have married Nancy Maddux and then Nancy ____? Johnson / Johnston. Then it looks like Adam died between 1836 and 1840 census. Nancy Beard, age 50, b. PA is on 1850 Jasper, Fayette, Census with 18yr old William Johnson and 14-yr old Irvin Beard.
I found a death record for Elizabeth in Antwerp, OH, father Irvin Beard, b. Fayette, OH. mother, Catherine Day.
In 1880, Irvin and Catherine are in Antwerp. Irvin's father (Adam?) b. VA and mother (Nancy?) b, Ireland? Guess it's not the first time a census is wrong, but which one?
Of course Nancy could have been b. Ireland and then lived in PA before OH, I run into that a lot. Confusion over the question of where are you from? I just came from the Kitchen?
So, wonder if Adam was b. VA or if his family was from VA?
