I am researching Bearb,Beard. Guillaume(Belle)Bearb and his son William came into Louisiana in 1755 to 1800 with acadians who were traveling to La. Guillaume married Marie Fort Coleman and William married Adelaide Gilchrist. This is recorded in the Opelousas and St. Martinville Church. Guillaume's birth place is unknown. William was born in Virginia. These names may be found on World Family Tree, vol.1 under Bearb. There was also a Thomas Beard that registered at the same time. Possible brother to Guillaume. He married Brigite Kennon . They are from Ireland. If anyone can help me find a connection to Thomas or the parents of Guillaume I would deeply appreciate it. You are welcome to any information I have.
