Thanks Eamon, for the reply. The Robert Beattie I am looking for learned the carpet and weaving trade as a child because when he left Ireland around 1828 he headed for the Mohawk Valley in New York state to learn more. He also told of a family history of making carpets on the back of a wagon in the Armagh province.
The is a rumor that he had a son, John, that he left in Ireland. I am wonder also about your name because my father is named for his grandfather (the son of John) Edmund Beattie, which I have found is not a popular first name for Beattie's. I had visited Scotland this past Sept. in search of more information on my line. Please let me know if any of this strikes a cord.
