Picture of the Week: James Madison Bean, Jr, (1834-1891) one of 7 sons of James Madison Bean, Sr. and Hollie Swearingen. All 7 sons fought in the Civil War and returned home, James "Uncle Matt" lost an arm and was said to be of volatile temper as were his brothers--read about the Ashley-Bean Gunfight of 1891, Jackson, Alabama, involving a few of his sons. This family's lineage will be featured in the Virginia Patriarchs tree which will debut in December on the Clan Macbean Web Site, clanmacbean.org Check it out! :)) ... See MoreSee Less

Hello,
I have been working on my family tree for some time and my 6x great grandmother is Peniel Bean. I have been stuck on this ancestor for some time as I have been unable to find much information on her. I was referred here by someone as you are said to be the leaders of knowing everything BEAN. 🙂
Peniel Bean was born around 1710 In New England, USA. I believe New Hampshire. She married Joseph Hall in 1731 and had 9 children: Ann, Mary, Joseph, Daniel, Abigail, Samuel, Hannah, John and Peniel all born in or areas imediatly around Dover, New Hampshire, USA. Would you happen to have ANY information on this woman?

Kind Regards

Clan MacBeanIf you are a member of Clan MacBean, our Clan Genealogist clanmacbean.org/ she can probably help you out. The plan is to be able to provide each member a CD of thier ancestry. We are pretty much up to speed on the John Bean of Exeter line, the original Bean family in America and are adding addition lines here and in the UK.

Justine BradfordEmma, I love easy ones--Peniel Bean, the gt. granddaughter of John of Exeter, was married to Joseph Hall and was the daughter of Daniel Bean/Ann Sanborn. The family line is on our web site in the John of Exeter Tree and can be accessed at will by Members of the Clan. just go to clanmacbean.org and if you like what you see, you can join right on line for a modest $25/yr. We have your Hall line 6 generations down from Peniel and Joseph. Email me at genealogist@clanmacbean.org and let me know. :))

It's that time of year - Happy Halloween! Just had three of my Scottish periodicals show up the same day, and don't you know, one (Scottish Banner)has two small articles on Sawney Bean. Sawney Bean and his cannibal family were supposed to, and I emphasize "supposed to" have preyed on travelers in southwest Scotland during a long period somewhere between the14th and 16th centuries. Even the two articles give different centuries. The general view is that Sawney and his family were fictitious characters, or at least highly exaggerated from what might have been minor criminals in previous centuries. There are no historical records that mention them and it is doubtful that the Kennedy family who were considered to be the "Kings of Carrick" at the time would have let such funny business go on in their territory. There are a lot of internet references to the story of Sawney and his cave's location near Balllantrae in Ayrshire and a lot of adaptations of the story exist. I was actually very close to the supposed location of the cave once, but the road was blocked. I was on the wrong road. There is a layby close to the main road that you can climb down to it from. ...

Support the Clan MacBain Memorial Park

You may not know but there is a Clan MacBain memorial park in Scotland on the slopes of Loch Ness. Up to this point the Chief has maintained these grounds but we want to enable all who wish to support this cause. Go to this page to see some pictures of the park and learn about what you can do to help out!
