Many thanks for posting to my guestbook. I, too, found the George Beard family in the 1820 US Census of Williamsport. Records of the George Beard family have been difficult to find. I suspect they tended to live “on the edge” of civilization – a heritage of pioneers living on the fringe so to speak – rather than city dwellers. I found a marriage record for George and Matilda Neal Beard (check Ancestry.com for “Tennessee Marriages to 1825”). I’m having great difficulty connecting George Beard (1785) to his parents (whoever they are). I have reason to believe his father’s name was Lewis – but have absolutely no solid evidence to support the notion. If you have any clues as to George Beard’s ancestry, I’d be delighted to learn of it. Thanks again for the generous offer. I’m always interested in comparing notes. – Greg
You said you were trying to track down George Beard. So am I. He was apparently born about 1782 in Williamson Co., TN (which then included parts of what became Maury Co.) He reportedly married Matilda Neal. He is located in the 1820 census living in Williamsport (in Maury Co.) I suspect one of his sons, also named George, moved to Perry Co. in 1830 and opened a store in what became known as Beardstown. (Or it may have been George Sr.) I have a little more if you’re interested.
Thank you for signing my guestbook. Of course, we can’t know for sure if we are related without some evidence – such as shared ancestry, matching DNA, etc. You can compare your family bible entries with those on my web site to see if we have common ancestors. My DNA profile is posted to the web site (greg.bennette.org) and on Ancestry.com and ysearch.org. 23andme.com requires the purchase of their DNA test in order to gain access to member DNA profiles like yours, so I can’t compare yours with mine there (I already have a DNA test so don’t need to buy another one just to compare with yours). Thanks again for dropping by and taking the time to sign the guestbook. Sorry the contact form failed to work properly – I’ll check that out.
I think we might be related. My father was Milton Richard Lee born in San Bernardino, CA in 1937. My great grandfather was also Milton Richard Lee I believe from Oregon somewhere. We have a Lee family bible around here somewhere from the late 1800’s, with geneology information going back to the 1700’s I know one of my ancestors was an Oregon Trail survivor and was written up in a newspaper article some decades ago (have the clipping in the bible). I’m not certain, but I Joseph Dunn Bradford Lee sounds sort of familiar as my great great grandfather.
ALSO, I’m related to the Bennetts via my paternal grandmother. Not sure if that is the same as your Bennettes. I think they are also from Oregon.
Incidentally, my full genome is up on 23andMe.com, if you are also there and want to do a genetic comparison.
Interesting website. It’s obvious you have done a lot of work and research. I appreciate the shared Beard family history (not my own) for two of my grandchildren. With the information you’ve provided it clears up confusion of what others have posted online. Thank you. Ludie
My husband’s family are the Farrens family. I found your sight in looking for relation. I think this is interesting. If you have any info that would help we would love to hear from you.
Many thanks for your generous offer – and the obvious hard work you put into your ancestry site – well done indeed! I’m reasonably sure now that your Hulls and mine are different. They may be related though I don’t know how yet – but they are definitely NOT the same family as the dates and names do not match. SOME names are the same or similar – making one believe they MUST be the same family (how many “Trustrum Hulls” can there be?). As I gathered much of my information from Robert Rohde, I must defer to him until I can prove out his data – which needs it as Robert has not included any documentation to support his data. IF I prove his data to be incorrect, I may be back to investigate your well-documented Hull ancestry with a new eye and fresh perspective – along with a deep sense of gratitude for your kind and generous collaboration offer and contact.
Dear Bronwyn (an interesting name, I think),
Thank you for your post to my Guestbook. And thank you for your willingness to share. I recommend that when you are ready post your data to Rootsweb.com where it can be enjoyed and worked on by many many more – FREE. Just post a link to your Rootsweb database here so we can find it easier. Again many thanks for your most generous offer and intent. I’ve come to expect such generosity from my web site visitors. It’s refreshing in today’s world of financial woes and low levels of trust. – Greg
Thank you for posting on my Guestbook. I am not related to any of the Olds family. My aunt by marriage has a great aunt who married an Olds – and that is how the Olds came into my database. As I have not had time nor inclination yet to prove out the Olds line, I would highly suspect my Olds data. “One of these days” I tell myself, “I’ll get a round-tuit!” – Greg
I noticed that you had posted some information on rootsweb on a Frances Shipp married to a Phoeboe Olds. He was my uncle and his brother was my grandfather. Phoeboes sister was my grandmother. Are you of relation or researching for someone?
My name is Bronwyn. I am enjoying your website very much. George Sherman Lazenby is my great-grandfather. Alma Lazenby is my grandmother. When I am able to, I will share some more information.
I am trying to contact you but the roots email was reurned as undeliverable and the antispam contact rejected me. I have some corrections for your Hull/Hulse genealogy. If you are interested, please see my Ancestry World Tree site for the info and for my contact info.
I am researching the Keyt/Kemp families. Susan Kemp married E. C. Keyt in 1853. Susan was Sarah Kemp’s oldest daughter and sister of Anna Gowdy. Would love to see if we could share information. Thank you.
My husband’s great grandmother was a Sarah DeLashmutt that could be the one you have in your web site. She named her daughter Amanda. DO you have any information on who Sarah married?
Amanda was perhaps born in Salem or Oregon City in 1876- Did Sarah die?
Amanda was taken out to eastern Wa where she met and married Walter West Markham.
I would appreciate any information.
We are Oregonions -but misplaced at the moment in Florida. We miss God’s country.
