Hi Alf,
Thanks for all the work you do on the BEARD family, I'm pretty much a beginner, but gradually becoming hooked! It's slow work though, living in Western Australia, but I'm a game girl!
My father was Stanley Silvey Beard,b 1897, son of Thomas Edwards Beard b1835 and Mary Ann Silvey b1837.
Plenty of people seem to have details of Samuel Beard b1829, but not much on T.E.
However... I went to Northam W.A. and found gravestones in an old cemetry which may be of some interest:-
In loving memory of
Born in Gloucestershire England 1830
and departed this life on May 28th 1900
aged 70 years then the following...
Cornelieus beard it was my name,
and Northam was my station,
Heaven is my dwelling place,
and Christ is my salvation.

Now I am dead and in my grave,
and all my bones are rotten,
this little verse will tell my name,
when I am quite forgotten.

Erected by his loving wife Mary Beard and children.
In same plot was
Sacred to the memory of
the beloved wife of
who died on the 21st March 1884
aged 55 years

Deeply regretted by her sorrowing husband, family and friends.

Hope this will be of interest.
regards, Varian
