My PA McBeths begin with James, born Ireland about 1797, living in Indiana Co., PA, at least by 1826. The 1850 census includes his wife (Mary)Elizabeth and four sons, Alexander, Robert, William, and Franklin. There apparently also were three daughters. I descend from William, b. 1835 in PA. William's children include Alexander ( my ggrandfather), John Edward, Jeanette May, James L., Effie, and Franklin. William and several members of his family were in Fayette Co. by at least 1880. Looking for information and long-lost cousins.
