Re: John Bean - Elizabeth his dau.

Dave and Kimmy,

Re John Bean, Rand Greubel mentions in his essay on John Sinkler
at http://kingcrest.com/sinclair/johnsinkler.html-ssi that one
of John Bean's descendants apparently did a research piece on
his (John Bean's) descendants. This was in around 1977. Quoting
from Rand's article:

"Mr. Bernie Bean, an ancestor of the John Bean mentioned above,
has authored a history of his family entitled The Life and
Family of John Bean of Exeter and His Cousins. [Editor's note:
According to Mr. Greubel, the material by Mr. Bean on his
ancestor John Bean is available in the Mormon family history
library in Salt Lake City but so far as is known, has not been
published elsewhere.] Bean states that an expatriate Scotsman by
the name of Nicholas Lissen "was operating two lumber mills near
Exeter, N.H." in 1651 (Bean 1977:5). Following Stackpole, he
states that "the seven men who were indentured to Nicholas
Lissen were: John Bean, John Barber, Alexander Gordon, John
Sinclair, John Hudson, John Thompson, and Walter Jackson. All
were to be lifetime friends of John Bean." (Bean 1977:6)"

If anyone happens to get a copy of this work, please let us know
what it contains!
