Hi Betty,
That was nice of you to look up the information.

Charlie C. Bearden was a minister that preached in Wise County, Donely, Fannin, Red River for the First Christian churches, but this might have also been Church of Christ churches. He migrated from Bedford Co. TN with other people and relatives. James Allen Bearden will be his Uncle, his cousin Margaret Ann Bearden married William Bailey Stone.

I find it amazing how groups of people would migrate together and then do so as a group of christians to preach with the sole mission to spread the word. They would gather in groups of 70 and move into an area supported by the churches back in Bedford Co. TN to settle Wise County, Texas and then these area would become launching areas to the Indian nation or other unsettled lands.

Thank you,
