Re: Ohio and Pa Beal families

In Reply to: Re: Ohio and Pa Beal families by Jon McBurney of 1706

Jon, Most of the material that I have collected relates to the Beals who have moved into or through Guernsey County, Ohio. There are at least four different families that I have tracked who may or may not be related. As I recall the Fayette County Beals are descended from William R. Beal, born 1764 and married to Elizabeth. Children were Nicholas, Mary, Isaac, Joseph, Aaron, Benjamin, and Sarah, all born between 1790 and 1800. There is a George R. Beal who must have been a son of one of these individuals who moved to Guernsey County, and although I have information on his family, I have not connected him to any of the other Fayette County Beals of the previous generation
I do not show Mildred, but I do recall seeing the name McBurney somewhere in the information that I have collected, so will continue to look. Do you know if Mildred had any brothers or sisters, as that may help me track things down?
The Fayette County Beals were probably Scottish in origin from what I have seen. They were also Copperheads, southern sympathizers, during the Civil War from what I have read.
Here is the information that I have on that family. Glenn
