Gilbert BEEKMAN of Pike or Highland Co, OH, 1869–1
Posted by: Greg Robson Date: October 20, 2001 at 22:55:41
  of 286

I am trying to find the parents of my 2g grandfather Gilbert BEEKMAN who lived in Highland or Pike Co, OH, 1869 to 1961. He married his cousin Ida BEEKMAN (b. 1859, d/o Stephen BEEKMAN and Melinda JESTES or JUSTICE) and their children included my g grandmother Lula BEEKMAN who was born in Pike Co, OH in 1894.

Gilbert is buried at East Cemetery in Mifflin Twp, Pike Co, OH. I’m especially interested in his mother, because Lula always said she had a Cherokee grandmother and it must be on Gilbert’s side. Possible connection to “Carmel Indians” or Melungeons in Carmel, Brushcreek Twp, Highland Co, OH.

Any help in tracking down his roots would be appreciated. I’m afraid I have very little information about this family to share, but will share what I have. Thanks!
