John Monroe Bean, Sr. was born in 1866 in Cincinatti, Ohio to William M. Bean [1832-1890] and Margaret Smith Perkins Bean [1828-1891].

Mary Elizabeth Faudree Bean was born 1897 in Centennial [now located between Gap Mills and Sweet Springs], West Virginia to Stephen L. Faudree [1857 - 1929] and Elizabeth Carnifax Faudree [1861 - 1929].
