Col. Thomas Beared served in the War of 1812, Greenbrier County, 2nd.
Division, 13th Brigade, 79th Regiment - Date of Commission, April 18, 1811.
Col. Beard owned a large farm adjoining the Renick property at Spring
Creek. It is a tradition in the family that he took part in the invasion of
Canada during that war ( 1812 ), and that the sward that he carried is
still in the possession of the family ( in 1951 ). He was the son of
Captain John Beard , who was born in 1733, in Agusta County, then West
Virginia and he died near Lewisburg, Greenbrier County, West Virginia in
1808.
His wife was Jannett Walace ( 1746 - 1819 ) They married Jan. 16, 1769.
