Surnames: Alden, Bean, Hesford
I am looking for information on William Bean b: Mar 1859 in Maine, USA. He married Anna E Hesford b: 6 Mar 1869 in Wisconsin, USA. Anna died on 19 May 1939. They produced Margaret Bean b: 1890; Walter Simon Bean b: 27 Jan 1893 in Mondovi, Wisconsin, USA, d: 4 Jan 1944 in Portland, Oregon, USA; Sometime between 1900 and 1905 William Bean either died (that's the story I'm told) or divorced Anna and Anna married Charles Alden (one record suggests his name was Ben Alden). Together Anna and Charles produced Martha Priscilla Alden b: 22 Oct 1905 in San Francisco, California, USA.
Anyone with information on any of the above mentioned, especially William Bean, please let me know.
Thanx,
Marv Alden

P.S. I'm out of Bakersfield, Kern County, California. If anyone needs assistance with local research in my area I'd gladly help.

The Bean family is famous in Maine, I would look for a connection to this man...

if you can do that then you might find more. I'm not sure if that helps at all but it might be worth a try.

Thank you for taking the time to provide that info. Unfortunately I have the same info but get stuck at that point. I know William & Anna lived for awhile in San Francisco, California, where Anna had a daughter by a man named Charles Alden, whom Walter, my Grand father, loved so much for raising him and siblings as his own that he took Alden as his last name, which is how I got my last name. Just can't find any info on William and his parents.
Again thanks for your effort, it is appreciated.
