Re: Thomas Bearden b.1821 picture
In Southern Lineages, in Marion, Illinois I found a letter dated
1954 from Bearden Construction (located in Marion), Thomas was the son of William Bearden and Sarah Barton (m. 8/24/1803)-that Thomas was born in Granville County, NC. I also have another copy of a document from NC stating that a Charles Bearden was Thomas' father, however, I think this one is for another Thomas Bearden.The letter also states that the Beardens were small in size, and liked to procreate. My grandmother gave me the picture of Thomas, born 1821.
