Almost Wordless Wednesday - October 28, 2009

That's the Texicanwife on the left [hmmm...we won't say what year this was!] And my baby sister, Eydie, on the right. In the middle is my beautiful grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Faudree Bean [1897-1975]. This is a rare of photograph of her with the only two grandchildren she got to know. The year she died [11 months later] my parents adopted 2 little boys, so there were two more from our family. Several years later, my Uncle married and had 2 more children.

Mary was the daughter of Stephen Ledford Faudree and Elizabeth Carnifax. She married John Monroe Bean, Sr.[1866-1954] in Alleghany County, Virginia. The couple lived in Monroe County, West Virginia. They had three sons: Walter Maxwell [b. 1937], Edsel Ford [b. 1939], and Roy Edwin [1943-1946].

Mary and John are buried in the New Zion Union Church Cemetery, Waiteville, Monroe County, West Virginia. Roy Edwin is buried at Carmel Cemetery, Gap Mills, Monroe County, West Virginia.
