Comment by Da Von Bearden.My father is David Daniel Bearden whose father was Edward Llivingston Bearden Sr. whose father was Daniel Boone Bearden. Edward Livingston Bearden Sr.and his wife Nancy had 9 children 6 girls and 3 boys. So Robert Lee his brother Roy Judson and.... Edward Livingston Sr.(my Grandfather). were 1/2 brothers. So your Grandfather and my paternal grandfather were 1/2 brothers. Our grandfathers had the same father ....Daniel Bearden..Right.!?
DaVon, who is your father? My mother was Evelyn. Actually, your brother is not the last of the Daniel Bearden's decendents. I have 4 surviving cousins, with the Bearden surname, who all have sons, so we have DNA out there. My grandfather Lee Bearden, son of Daniel and Mary Ann Robb, had 4 sons, 3 of them had sons, and lots of grandchildren out there. Did you meet Linda Bearden? She is the one who sent me the letters. There is also a Bearden family tree, but it isn't accurate. Jennie and I did not do well with the Bearden line. Joseph's father's name was John and he died in Taylorville Illinois somewhere around 1835. (I'm not looking at my database.) His wife's name was Sarah. I found the Blasingame connection, and Jennie was positive that was correct. I don't have enough proof for myself. Jennie's son, whose name escapes me, was also looking before she died. I have not talked to him for a long time so have no idea if he is still looking. We can talk tomorrow. I'm starting to confuse myself. :-)
Da Von, I think I'm losing my mind. I could swear that I just posted a comment. Of course we are the same family. Tell me your line. You must know that I am descended from Lee and Josephine. Where did you get the letter from Sarah Catherine? I am really interested in that Bearden information too. Tell me more. I know a couple of other people who are researching, and I knew Jennie Bearden Nau. I helped her some, when I lived in Fort Wayne. She was way beyond me at the time. What a darling she was!
Da Von, Hi. What letter do you have? I have a huge box full of the civil war letters, and I also have that copy of the letter, which is inaccurate. You are the first Bearden in my family who ever contacted me here! I'm excited to meet you.
Comment by Da Von Bearden. I also recently obtained a copy of an original letter written in Bloomington Illinois by John Goodheart to his wife Sara in 1861 and a copy of a letter written by one of the children of Daniel Boone Bearden listing marriages and children of grandparents and parents.
Comment by Da Von Bearden on July 19,2012. My GGrandfather is Daniel Boone Bearden his first wife was Nancy Gertrude Ashurst and his second wife was Mary Ann Robb. She is pictured on Ellen Rowan Taylor's site. Ellen Rowan Taylor is one of the few people I have discovered interested in Bearden ancestry I am searching for genealogi sts who have a connection to my Bearden heritage.
My Bearden lines goes back to Arthur Bearden and Rebecca McClendon who moved from Ga. to Al in the early 1800's. being there for the 1816 census. Then Lovin Bearden with many spellings, married a daughter of Jonathan Young, name unknown, died in the 1840's in Shelby Co, Al. Then Valentine Young Bearden who died the in Civil War in 1863, then daughter Sarah Bearden who married Albert Finely Call/ McCall. Emma Valentine McCall Ellison 1892-1963 to my mother Dorothy Ellison Etress
