Finley Beard placed an ad in the Western Story Magazine looking for his adopted sister Lucille Beard (Lucille (Tull) Tapp after adoption). He found her through the ad.
Research shows that Lucille was born in Minnesota and adopted in Shawnee Oklahoma. She married George Mann Tapp and had 5 boys. Used the last name Plum when filing for SS# in 1938 and remarried to Frank H. Palmer in Oregon 1938. Any information would be greatly appreciated to Lucille Beard's adoption and heritage.
