Treasure Chest Thursday

This serene view is seen from the entrance to the Bean Family Cemetery, which lies across a large field and the single lane road from the Bean Family Homestead, shown here.

This view never fails to stir me as I stand where my ancestors settled, built a lasting home - as testified to by the home that remains - and were finally layed to rest where I stand.

William Bean was a resilient and resourceful man who raised himself from an orphan and indentured servant, to a man of considerable wealth and means. He is the rock upon which our family stands with great pride.
