Forrest City Times Newspaper:Dec.26,1913:
Chancellor Robertson, of Wynne, and his little son Abner, went down to Helena Tuesday with the remains of the boy's grandfather, Captain Abner Beard, where they were interred in the Confederate Cemetery north of the city. The Captain was a Confederate Soldier and died in 1872, and was buried on his plantation in Texas township, St.Francis County, Arkansas. He was a participant in the battle of Helena and it seems fitting that the old soldier should find a last resting place on the battle ground where he fought. The Lee County Courier.

"Abner Beard, one of the early residents of, what was to become Lee County (Arkansas), was the son of Jabez Beard (1790-1854) and Sally Sarah (Wilkes) Beard (1798-1894, both of Bedford Co., Virginia. He was born on his grandfather's plantation, the first of Jabez and Sarah's thirteen children. An adjoining plantation was supposed to have been owned by Sam Davis, the father of Jefferson Davis (President of the Confederacy)according to family history passed down.
