I am looking for the ancestors and siblings of my 5th greatgrandfather, Frederick Beard, who was born on September 09, 1758 in Frederick County, Maryland. Frederick was married to Maria Weigle. I have seen information that the parents of Frederick Beard are John Beard and Mary? Beard. John Beard lived in Frederick County for awhile and died in Adams County, Pennsylvania about 1809. I have also seen information from the Family Maker cds that the father of John Beard was Nichlaus Barth, born about 1700 in Germany. Can anyone help me with this or show me where to find information? Please send any responses to my e-mail address.
