I am trying to make some connections and you query have some may lead me some where. One of my brick wall is Levi McFarland born abt 1815who in 1840 lived by William McFarland born abt 1775, who lived next door to Beatty McFarland born abt 1806. This information is from 1840 Island Creek Twp., Jefferson County, OH census. After some research I found that William McFarland born 1775 in Adams County, PA and married Margaret Beatty in 1800 some where in PA. So I know that William McFarland and Margaret Beatty had a son that they named after her maiden name who lived next door, Beatty McFarland. There is a strong possibility that the only other McFarland in the township living on the next census page might be another son.
Now about the clues in your query that matches by research. William McFarland was born in Adams County, the same county of your Beatty family. He probably married Margaret Beatty in Adams County. One of your Beatty married a McFarland. In those days, living is a small community with limited travel it was likely that you would marry into a neighbor’s family like your brothers and sisters. It was very common inter family marriages. Also the daughter of Levi McFarland, Hattie married James C. Williams from Adams County, PA.
Please let me know if you have any information that might prove or unprove any connections with your Beatty family.
