DGS recently received the following request for assistance. Can any of our readers contribute information to the puzzle? I will forward your responses to her.
Many years ago I found an old home about to be demolished. I retrieved many postcards and a few family photos that I would like to get to a descendant of the Beard family:
William Alfred Beard, circa 1859, England, living in District 4 Dallas in 1930 Census, age 79
Wife: Annie, born in Georgia, apparently deceased at time of 1930 Census
Emma Beard, dtr, born in Nevada 1885—listed as ‘single’ in 1930 Census, age 45
The Beard family residences:
Rt 4, Mesquite (1925)
4526 Leland St, Dallas (1929)
1719 Park Row, Dallas (1911)
181 Park Row, Dallas NOTE: 2 different addresses for Park Row, appear to be early 1900
2841 Britten [?] St, Dallas
In 1940, a member of the family, ‘Lillian Beard’ was living at PO Box 58, Terrell, Texas.
Ms. Carter has held on to these mementos for 50 years. Wouldn’t it be great if we could send them home!
