Beverly, I meant to say Leonard BEAN was married to Eda KILGOUR/KILGORE, not William. I've been trying to connect our William to Leonard, for many years, as have all of my other BEAN cousins, to no avail. There was another William BEAN, in Mason Co. also, and no connection to him was found, either. If you have proof that Leonard and our William were brothers I'd would be THRILLED if you would send it to me. We knew they went to the same church, but I didn't know that they were buried side by side at the cemetery. Does William, have a tombstone there? Some cousins went there looking for him. Do you have any idea where his wife, Joanna is buried, or her maiden name? A descendant of William and Joanna's son, John, has family/Bible record that says Joanna, was married 1st to a Mr. NEWMARCH, in VA., and had a dau. Mollie, [prob Mary Mollie] by him. William BEAN, acted as a father to her, and in an early document Mollie's husband, Nicholas CONNETT, hired William BEAN, as an attorney for him and called him his father in law. William, died in 1847, will filed in Feb., codicil added in June, and proven in Aug. of that year. Joanna, was older that he, and was dead before him, as she wasn't mentioned in his will. However we haven't found a gravesite for her, or for their, son, Benjamin's dau. Elizabeth, who was dead by mid 1838, childless, prob near Orangeburg, Mason Co. KY. She was wife of Daniel Perry WALLINGFORD, who went to MO. with his brother, and father in law, Benjamin, and his family. Do you know where your Leonard and William were raised, think I remember he was born in MD, is that right? It's been so many years since I did the research on him. ANYTHING that you can give me as proof of our William's connection to any of your family would make me very very happy. Do you have a Bible record, a will, or any documents?
