Martha Womack Bean - Bible Record

Martha Womack was married to Robert Bean. A grandson, Lemuel Beene (1 Nov 1812 - 16 Jan 1884), fought in the Cherokee Disturbance circa 1836. Lemuel's widow, Easter (Fraiser) Beene of Alcorn Co, MS, applied for his pension. The Bean/Beene Bible record was included in the pension application.

My main concern is the Bible record included with this pension application, so my notes are sparse on other matters. Anyone sufficiently interested can order this pension application from National Archives with info below.

Soldier: Beene, Lemuel
Dependent: Beene, Easter (Widow)
Service: Lackens Company Alabama Volunteers (Cherokee War) {also given as Capt Likens Co}
Date of Filing: 24 Oct 1892
Class: Widow
Application No: 2278
Certificate No: 593
State: Miss.

Bean/Beene Bible Record

Note that I am not certain these birth and death records were from pages of a Bible or just family record papers.

Note also that Martha (Womack) Bean's maiden name is not listed.

All hand-written except for stamp on second photocopy.

Do you know what happened to Sallie Bean, dau of Robert and Martha? She is the same age of my suposed maternal, paternal great grandmother, supposedly Sarah Bean who married a William Johnson. So far this family story does not prove out.
