David Beard's estate appeared in the Fayette, OH Minute Book for 1820

Tax records of Fayette county also reflect David Beard heirs were taxed on land he owned. The records reflect David Beard heirs from the years 1820 to 1827.

Evan sold land that David bought in 1817 to John Beard in 1826 in Fayette, OH and appearred in St. Claire, IL in 1830.

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.
