Oma Bean is famous as a white girl who was saved from being killed by a Native American called Nancy Ward.  I can't find records for who her children were.

Fill the details in on that link and maybe you'can find some information.  Good luck!

According to this article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nancy_Ward
"[Nancy] used that power to spare a Mrs. William (Lydia Russell) Bean, whom she took into her house and nursed back to health from injuries suffered in the battle. Mrs. Bean taught Nanyehi a new loom weaving technique, revolutionizing the Cherokee garments

There is a Find A Grave memorial for Lydia (Russell) Bean here:

The earliest Oma Bean that I have entered into WikiTree is this profile:
http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bean-1940

I don't know if she is the Oma Bean who was saved by Nancy Ward, or not.  (Do you know in what state Nancy lived?)

I added Oma's childrens names to her bio, and can add additional information about her descendants if there is an interest.
