*** it would appear that this is either Emma's son out of wedlock or the grandson of one of William's other children.
In the 1920 census he is shown as Burton Beard age 13 so you must assume he took the name Beard when his mother married. According to the 1910 census Thomas was not married or a widower so he could have been William Burton Strausbaugh's birth father.
You need his birth cert to see who his parents are listed as. I could not find a birth reg.
