I am searching for descendants of three Beard/Blackman marriages. Anna Beard 1761-1843 married first David Curtiss (of Stratford CT.)and then became the second wife of James Blackman.Her elder sister Sarah 1757- was the second wife of Zacharia Blackman. These two sisters are the daughters of David Beard and an Anna (maiden name unkn). Another Beard/Blackman marriage took place between their cousin Joel 1765-(son of Samuel Beard and Elizabeth Wheeler) and a Mercy Blackman. I certainly suspect these Blackmans are related to one another, and would love to know how as well as any children that came through these unions.
