Searching for documented proof of Charles Bransford Jared Sr. , being the son of Joseph Jackson Jared and Martha Agnes Beard. He was born in 1793 in Bedford VA. He died around 1850, possibly in Roseville, Warren Co. IL. He married Lucy Matthews, she is listed as HOH in 1850 census. Charles also had a brother named Charles, born in 1817, by his father's second wife Elizabeth "Betsy" Baker. Charles Sr. also had a son Charles Bransford Jared Jr., born Jan 15, 1834. Alot of IL. records from the Roseville area got destroyed by a tornado around 1870. Charles lived in the Jackson County TN. area. Do not know when or why he went to IL. He had a bother there named John Jared Sr., and his wife Elizabeth Bandy, they are both buried in the Old Jared Cemetary in Swan Creek, IL.Any help appreciated.
