Greetings to Clan MacBean;
I have been doing my genealogy for awhile now. My maternal grandmother was a Bean from Texas>Alabama>S.Car.>Ireland>Eng>and maybe Scotland.
It goes like this; Maude Bean b. 1890, Tx.>David Bean b. 1869, Ala.>D.M.Bean b. 1828, Ga.>Walter Bean b. 1791 N.Car.>John Bean b. 1776 S.Car.>William Bean b.1727,Ireland was married to Naomi Bates>( I think a William Bean b. abt. 1700,Virginia>Matthew Bean b. abt. 1650. Eng.) Does this line get anywhere near MacBean Clan and Scotland. I sure would be proud to have that blood line. I would be grateful for any help on this subject. Thanks for listening. Roze from Oklahoma b. 1952.

I believe your genes jumped the track back at William Bean 1727, who emigrated on the Admiral Hawke to Charleston SC from Ireland. He was born 1727, probably near Croy, Inverness according to a conversation of my father with Bernie Bean while living. Bernie had it in notes he was unable to locate from a conversation with family members (he travelled widely in the US). Certainly there was a William Bean in Croy at that time - his father may also have been William (records I have seen at Inverness). My father believes he left Scotland for Ulster before Culloden Field, but don't know the source of that information. I believe he found evidence of Bean in Ulster, but Irish records were mostly lost in fires.

There were several SC Beans fighting in the War of Independence, indicating that there were several branches of the family in NC and SC at that time. I believe that these get mixed up in records. William 1727 enlisted in the Third Regiment on 10 April 1779 under Capt. Felix Warley and was discharged on 1 July, 1781. His son William served in Pickens' brigade before and after the fall of Charlestown. It seems likely that at least the father was at the Battle of Cowpens as the Third Regiment was there; but there is no more evidence than that. Whether the family participated in the battle at Musgrove Mill no one knows, but it was not too far from their cabin.

I too am a decendant of William Bean and Naomi Bates. My father, Virgil B. Beene, b10-22-1914, is the son of Artie Thurman Beene,b1-27-1888 in MS, son of John Isaac Beene, b4-8-1868,son of Wiley Hopkins Bean, b1-29-1831 (Butts co, GA), son of Wiley Jackson Bean, 1802 in NC, son of John Bean, b10-18-1776 (Laurens Co, SC), son of William Bean, b 1727 or 1730 in Ireland. My records indicate Walter Bean, b1791 in NC was the son of John Bean, who was the son of William Bean and Naomi Bates, who came to SC (from Scotland) on the Admiral Hawk with 3 children in 1767. My records do not contain a father's name for William Bean, but indicates he was 10 years old when he left Ireland with his parents for Scotland. My records indicate Naomi Bates father was "probably" Isaac Bates. I'm always interested in Bean/Beene/Beane history and have quite a bit of information. Is this info helpful? Etta Beene Vaughan

Hi Etta,
You have everything quite good. William probably left Scotland at 10 for Ireland, at least that is what I think you meant. We havent traced William and Naomi's upline, other than it is said that Naomi is the daughter of Isaac Bates, which you have. We don't have Williams parents.
I would be glad to trade information with you on this line.
I have quite a bit of it in the Clan database, but always need updates. I may already have your line, but you may have some things that I don't. let me know.

DeWitt, this may be the woman you asked about, in the Social Security Death Index:

VONA E MORGAN, 29 Sep 1927 - 15 Jul 1992. SSN: 439-52-0012, issued: Louisiana.

There are quite a few things you can do with this information. First of all, you can find it yourself at , and attach a Postem to her record. This will help cousin/researchers find you.

Second, you can click on the SS-5 link, to generate and print out a letter you send to the SSA requesting her SSN Application. Information about her parents will be on that application, along with her signature!

Third, you can now search for obituaries for her, which will probably add to the information you know have. Most importantly, it will give you the name of the funeral home, which will hold still more records.

I hope this is helpful,

Vona Morgan is a sister of my deceased father, Virgil Beene. To the best of my knowledge she is residing in a nursing home in or around Hattisburg, MS. She was married to Jesse Morgan and they had two daughters, Charlotte, who passed away during the past 3 years, and Beverley who lives in Greenwood, MS. She is the only sibling of my father's remaining. His sister, Velera Franks, died on the day my father was buried. Both lived in Itawamba County.
