    Mary Beard-Graves' (Maria Magdalena Baard) parentage has not been documented by the NSSAR/NSDAR; however, she appears to be the daughter of Francis Beard (Frans Baard) and Christina Kersenaar (Dorst). The book, GENEALOGIES OF THE DESCENDANTS OF THE FIRST SETTLERS OF SCHENECTADY, by Jonathan Pearson, Albany, N.Y., 1873, Pg. 5, lists a family under the surnames "Baard (Baat)" as follows: BAARD (BAAT) FRANS, and Christina Kersenaar (Dorst). Ch: Helena, bp. Jan. 6, 1770, Maria Magdalena, bp. May 7, 1771; Maria Barbara, bp. Sept. 8, 1773; Sarah, bp. Jan. 24, 1776; Susanna, bp. Nov. 12, 1778; Johannes, bp. July 7, 1778.

    Mary Beard (Maria Magdalena Baard) married Josiah Graves, Jr. in 1784 at Scotch Church, New York. They were married until Josiah's death in 1814. Josiah and Mary are listed as founders of Schenectady, New York on the "Schenectady Digital History Archive" website under the surname "GRAVES" - Josiah and Mary Beard (Maria Magdalena Baard).

    Documentation sources for this biography are as follows:

    1) Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant of Mary Beard-Graves # 7578.

    2) The book, GENIALOGIES OF THE DESCENDANTS OF THE FIRST SETTLERS OF THE PATENT AND CITY OF SCHENECTADY, FROM 1662 TO 1800, Pg. 79, by Jonathan Pearson, Albany, NY: J. Munsell, 1873. This book is posted on the Schenectady Digital Hisory Archive website at www.schenectadyhistory.org.

    Mary Beard-Graves' (Maria Magdalena Baard) parentage has not been documented by the NSSAR/NSDAR; however, she appears to be the daughter of Francis Beard (Frans Baard) and Christina Kersenaar (Dorst). The book, GENEALOGIES OF THE DESCENDANTS OF THE FIRST SETTLERS OF SCHENECTADY, by Jonathan Pearson, Albany, N.Y., 1873, Pg. 5, lists a family under the surnames "Baard (Baat)" as follows: BAARD (BAAT) FRANS, and Christina Kersenaar (Dorst). Ch: Helena, bp. Jan. 6, 1770, Maria Magdalena, bp. May 7, 1771; Maria Barbara, bp. Sept. 8, 1773; Sarah, bp. Jan. 24, 1776; Susanna, bp. Nov. 12, 1778; Johannes, bp. July 7, 1778.

    Mary Beard (Maria Magdalena Baard) married Josiah Graves, Jr. in 1784 at Scotch Church, New York. They were married until Josiah's death in 1814. Josiah and Mary are listed as founders of Schenectady, New York on the "Schenectady Digital History Archive" website under the surname "GRAVES" - Josiah and Mary Beard (Maria Magdalena Baard).

    Documentation sources for this biography are as follows:

    1) Revolutionary War Pension and Bounty Land Warrant of Mary Beard-Graves # 7578.

    2) The book, GENIALOGIES OF THE DESCENDANTS OF THE FIRST SETTLERS OF THE PATENT AND CITY OF SCHENECTADY, FROM 1662 TO 1800, Pg. 79, by Jonathan Pearson, Albany, NY: J. Munsell, 1873. This book is posted on the Schenectady Digital Hisory Archive website at www.schenectadyhistory.org.
