      Eli Beer 24 Male Farmer Born in NC
      Mariah Beer 29 Female Born in TN
      John Beer 10 Male Born in TN
      Thomas Beer 6 Male Born in TN
      Lawrance Beer 5 Female Born in TN
      Ezekiel Beer 3 Male Born in TN
      William Beer 1 Male Born in TN

      NOTES:
      Lawrance (or Lavrance) is listed as a female; no more records can be found for a Lawrance Bean.

      Should this be Sarah, born 1845, who Eli brought back to NC from TN in the mid to late 1850's.See notes below. Next 2 listings are Moses and Martin Canard (sic) - Mariah's brothers

      1853 - Joseph/Josiah Bean born in Tennessee to Eli and Mariah - possibly their last child. (Descendant, Truman Bean, DNA matches that of descendant of Ezekiel Bean.)

      Between 1853-1856 (after birth of Joseph and before birth of Catherine Jane)- Eli left Mariah in Tennessee and moved to North Carolina and married Margaret Jackson about 1855? (What happened between he and Mariah?)

      SOURCE: Descendant of Eli and 2nd wife Margaret Jackson notes: Eli first married a girl in Tennessee and left her and came to NC and married Margaret Jackson. John Bean was my mother's (Catherine Jane's) brother, he was born in Tennessee and lived there with his mother until he was grown and married and his dad went back to Tennessee to live with his first wife and she would not live with him so he came back and brought John and his wife, and a girl named Sarah, Eli Bean's daughter, who married a Right (Wright). (Another note seems to say Eli brought his mother back to NC with him from TN too.)

      NOTE: John M. Bean believed to have married about 1859 (married 41 years on 1900 census).

      His daughter Mary E. Bean was born November 1859 in NC.

      About 1855 - Eli married Margaret Jackson in NC

      About 1856 - Catherine Jane Bean, daughter of Eli/Margaret born in NC

      About 1858 - Phoeba A. Bean, daughter of Eli/Margaret born in NC

      About 1858-1859 - Eli returned to TN to live with his first wife but she wouldn't have him! He then returned to NC bringing his married son John and wife, his daughter Sarah, and his mother.

      with wife Narcissa J. (both born in TN) and daughter Mary E. (born in NC)

      As for the daughter Sarah who married a Right, who Eli brought back from TN: Possibly 14 year old Sarah Wright in the home of John Wright in Montgomery County, NC. Also in the home is her husband Charles (Nelson) Wright.

      NOTE: Mariah cannot be found in the 1860 census.

      In March 1862 Eli C. Bean, enlisted for the Civil War in Carthage, Moore County, N.C., so he moved to Montgomery between 1862 and 1870 when he appears on the Montgomery County census as did son, John M. Bean.

      His son, John M. Bean enlisted for the Civil War March 1862 in Montgomery County, N.C.

      NOTE: George Kinnard is Mariah's brother; Sarah is George's daughter.
      Mariah is listed just after her son, Alexander Kinnard, and his family.

      1871 - Jesse Mathis Bean born in NC, son of Eli/Margaret Jackson Bean

      Apparently Margaret Bean died between 1871 and 1880 - Eli is with wife Terry in 1880 Census:

      1880 Census, Troy, Montgomery County, North Carolina, page 187

      Bean, Eli 57 Head Farmer Self/parents born in NC
      Bean, Terry 45 Wife Farm laborer "
      Bean, Jesse 8 Son "
      NOTE: Eli's daughter Sarah Jane, who is married to Charles Nelson Wright, is living nearby.

      (See notes found in John M. Bean's bible for explanation as to how Sarah came to NC.)

      Son, John M. Bean, is also in Troy, Montgomery County, North Carolina - (born TN, father born NC, mother born TN)

      1880 Census, District 1, Putnam County, Tennessee
      Mariah Bean, widowed, age 61, born about 1819 in TN, parents born in N.C.?
      Also in her home are:
      Washington, son, single, age 32, born 1848, and
      Mary, daughter, single, age 18, born 1862.
      NOTES:
      Washington is 12 yr. old Buchanan from 1870 above and should be 22 in 1880.
      Mariah is again listed just after her son, Alexandar Kanard, and his family.
      It is unclear why Mariah is listed as widowed.

      1900 Census, Troy, Montgomery County, North Carolina, page 311b

      Bean, Eli C., boarder, 83, NC NC NC inmate county home b. 1816 Self/parents born in NC
      Bean, Terry, boarder, 63, NC NC NC inmate county home b. 1836 "
      NOTE: The Montgomery County Home was a poor house
      Son, John M. Bean, and wife Narcissa J. are in Jackson County, TN, in 1900.

      Mariah not found in 1900.

      Can't find Eli C. Bean in 1910 Census so he may have died before then.

      Son, John M. Bean is in Richmond County, NC, in 1910.

      J. M. Bean (Eli's son) died 27 February 1915 in Cumberland County, North Carolina of bronchial pneumonia. According to his death certificate he had a common school education. He was a widower. He was born 23 February 1841 in Putnam County, Tennessee, to Ely C. Bean and Matilda A. Kanard. Both parents were born in Putnam County, Tennessee. Burial was at the Butler Cemetery, Flea Hill Township. J. C. Daniels of Fayetteville, North Carolina, was the informant for the death certificate.

      NOTES: Putnam County wasn't formed until 1854 so birthplace should be Jackson County TN.

      Father Ely C. Bean birthplace of Putnam County, TN, is incorrect - should be born in NC as 1880 census record of John Bean shows and records of Eli Bean show.

      Mother, Matilda A. Kanard, should probably be Mariah Kinnaird.

      Informant for death certificate was the husband of John's granddaughter which could account for mistakes.
