From Archives in Fayette, Ohio:
A lot of the minute books and indexes that I need to look through were destroyed by a fire at the Court House in 1866. Here’s what I did find though.
I have five entries in Minute Book A that mentions David Beard & also Evan Beard. Unfortunately, no case number is listed on these so I can’t find the actual case information or a copy of the will.
I did locate a deed where David bought 167 acres from Peter Eyman on November 22, 1817.
That’s about all I can locate at this time, Common Pleas information is so difficult to research due to the-shall I say-rather unconventional way they filed things during that era.
