Tell me the story of how you finally believed in God. Emile Griffin told part of it at a recent conference. I would like to hear it again. pat

I was very surprised to see the elderly gentleman om Desperate Housewives was Orson Bean. I am approx. 14 years his junior and I don`t think I will be in that good a shape at that age, although my mom is 91. By the way I am female.

Hey Stephen, I have a Pollard family tree that probably has the info you are looking for. How can I contact you?

Joe SullivanJul 4, 2009

Doesn`t Orson Bean look a lot like Will Forte from SNL? When you look at Orson when he was younger both of them seem very similar.

Stephen StrahanJun 1, 2009

Does anyone ever respond to these questions or even look at it? STEPHEN STRAHAN

My great grandmother Melvina Pollard lived with Calvin Cooliage`s aunt. Have no idea of the relationship. Reading Mr. Beans bio, his mother, maiden name Pollard was cousin of Cooliage. I know nothing about my great grandmother, and I`m trying to find out who her parents were. She must have been related to Mr Bean`s mother. Does anyone know his mother`s family tree? Thank you. Stephen
