John Beard
Hi Cindy - I am not Emily - she is the one who married "my" John H. Beard. They divorced in 1850 in Charles Town W. Va.He m. Mathilde Lacombe in LA in 1860 - we have lots of family stories about him - he was quite a rogue, it seems. He may not be your guy but I would like to exchange more detailed information to be sure. I am an English professor at UMass Dartmouth - you can look me up in the faculty list there if you are worried about emailing me directly: I am leaving in an hour for a 10 day trip but we can correspond when I return. I can invite you to see my family tree or jest send you the information I have on Beard and his first wife Emily Straith. Your 2002 message named her (with the last name misspelled) so I think there may well be a connection, Our John Bear was a ramblin' man! Thanks, Judy

PS I cannot send attachments using this message board.

Emily Hunter Straith Beard
Hi Cindy - hope you get this - it has been hard tracking you down! You left a message in 2002 on an Ancestry message board about the above. I know all about her and want to know more (though already have a lot on him) about John H. Beard - am connected via his son Martin Willis Beard. If you get this, please email me at
