I am trying to locate the ancestors and siblings of my GGGGgrandfather, Mathias Beaver. I do not know his parents, but there is family legend that is father was also Mathias and fought in the Rev War.
?My Mathias? (1792-1877) lived along the Rocky River in NC and moved to Chesterfield Co, SC near the NC line near his father-in-law?s land. Mathias married Elizabeth Blakeney. d/o John Blakeney Jr and Nancy May, in Lancaster Co, SC in 1815. They had 16 children, 8 boys and 8 girls. I have been able to follow some of the descendants but have had no luck on the ancestors. I will be delighted to share info.
