BEASLEY's from Dinwiddie, Va

Looking for my Beasley ancestors.

1850 Census shows JAMES H. BEASLEY b. 1817.He married Mary L. Robinson abt. 12-17-1838 in Petersburg. He was listed on Dinwiddie census with Mary as wife, children:
John b. 1842
James b. 1844
William b. 1846
Francis b. 1-1848

Francis Beasley was my great-grandfather and his son, Walter Childress Beasley was my grandfather, born 5-7-1886 in Chesterfield, Va. Walter married LILLIAN GERTRUDE MANN who was born in 4-8-1890 in Chesterfield to JOHN MANN and ANNA HOY.

My search also found Walter's Father, FRANCIS A. BEASLEY, b. 1848. He married MILDRED O. WEEKS on April 16, 1868. MILDRED was born in Amelia to A. and MARY J. WEEKS abt. 1850. per census. FRANCIS (a.k.a. Frank) was listed as a farmer in Amelia County on 1880-1896 Bureau of Vital Statistics. FRANCIS and Mildreds children were: Henry
Isabella b. 1870
Truly A. b. 2-1882
Eva 5-3-188?
Walter Childress Beasley b. 5-7-1886

I have much info. on Beasley's from Amelia, Petersburg, and Chesterfield counties. Please respond with anything! Thanks!
