This is just some my family's research on Beach/Bradshaw/Cobb/Robinson line

*JUSTICE BEACH AND JUDITH ANN (ROBINSON) BRADSHAW

"1.Justice was born around 1740/1750 (based on his oldest child).
2.Justice died August 13,1828,in Burke Country, North Carolina.
3.Justice married Judith Ann Bradshaw, daughter of William II and Susannah Robinson Bradshaw, in approximately 1768. Some sources claim this marriage took place in Virginia before the Bradshaw family moved to North Carolina. Since I have done extensive research in Virginia in the area where the Bradshaws lived and have found no evidence of Justice Beachbeing there, I believe the marriage took place in North Carolina.4. His first child was born in North Carolina in 1769/1770 as evidence by two types of information. One is a sworn affidavit by this child, Benjamin Beach, where he tells his age. The second is census data where all of Benjamin's children who were queried as to the birthplace of their father say he was born in North Carolina..."

"His father could have been a sailor named Isaac beach."

6. Per jis will, filed in Burke County, Justice and Judith Bradshaw Beach had the following children:

i. BENJAMIN BEACH, b.c. 1770; d. Aug 22, 1848; m. 1st Sarah Cox, m. 2nd Polly Clarke.

ii. ABRAHAM BEACH, m. Sarah?

iii. JUSTICE BEACH, JR., b.c. 1780; d.c 1820

iv. (Female) BEACH, m. William West

v. ENOCH BEACH, m Lydia Bradshaw

Vi. (female BEACH, m. John KIng

vii. WILLIAM BEACH, m, Prudence Harper.

Viii. ALLIE BEACH

IX. ELIJAH BEACH, m. Tabitha Bradshaw.

x. ISAAC BEACH, b.c. 1787. m Elizabeth Clarke Baker (widow Baker).

7. Justice's name is also shown in records as "Justus" and "justis".
8. Justice owned land in Mecklenburg Country, North Carolina, in the 1780s/1790. This land
had a fish hatchery on it.
9. Justice moved to Burke Country, North Carolinia, just prior to 1800. The area is now part of
Caldwell County, North Carolina. A few of his sons and son-in-laws eventuall follwed,
such as Benjamin Veach, Abraham Beach and William West."
