In searching censuses for Ohio, I have found that there were two Christopher Beekman's. In 1830, one in Pike County/Mifflin township with 2 boys and 4 girls besides the parents. The other in Pike County/Sunfish township with 2 boys and 3 girls. Genealogists have said that one was married to Amy CAMPBELL and one was married to Sarah VAN METER. By 1850, Christopher (age 67)and Amy (age 58) in Pike Co/Benton township don't have any children living with them. The other Christopher(age 69) and Sarah(age 67) have Lewis Beekman (age 30) living with them . Researchers seem to be NOT be in agreement about the progeny of these two men. Does anyone have access to Ohio Wills for the mid to late 1800's that can look up these two Beekman men and perhaps we can figure out whose children are whose?
Christopher married to Amy, I don't know when he died.
Christopher married to Sarah died 7 July 1863 in Pike Co.
Thanks so much!
