I have since discovered that my Sally Lovell was also listed in other places as Sarah S Lovell. Benjamin Frank Beard b. 1853 in Fulton Co. Ill., was one of their sons, as well as Arthur Douglass Beard b.abt 1860. Frank was my husband's grandfather and Stephen was his ggrandfather. Just wondering if this is the same Stephen Beard you discussed.
