I am atttempting to research my g-g-grandparents, Frank KELLEY and Ida BEAN. Frank KELLEY was born in Texas, in 1873. Ida BEANE was born in Texas, in 1875. They were married in (I believe) 1892 in Belton, Bell Co., Texas. They had 4 children that I am aware of: Frank, b. 1894, Lorence, b. 1896, Zelma, b. 1897, and Vaida M., b. 1899. I have no information on Frank's parents. However,Ida's parents appear to have been WIlliam BEAN, b. 1844 in Mississippi, and Nelly BEAN, b. 1850 in Georgia. They appear to have had 6 other children in addition to Ida. Their names: Frederick, Osker, Bernice, Stella, and Milton. I am attempting to find any onfo I can on these people's ancestors and descendants, or pointers to information. One mystery I am attempting to solve is the ethnicity of Ida BEANE. She is evidently listed as Black in the 1900 Census. However, I have seen old photos of her and her mother. Both of these women appear to be Caucasian or,perhaps, Indian ancestry. Nelly's census entry for 1900 states that she was born in Georgia. Her parents' birthplaces are unknown. William BEAN's parents are listed as being born in Virginia and Alabama. I'd appreciate any info anyone can point me towards. Thanks a bunch!
