I descend from a Jacob Beem who was residing in Belmont County, OH in the very early 1800's. His biography states that he was born in Rockbridge Co, VA, married Elizabeth McMillen ca 1818 suppodely in Belmont County and then he removed west, finally settling in Hardin County, OH. The only will for any one of this surname that I found in Belmont county is for an Elizabeth Beem whose will was probated 27 march 1829. In it, she leaves ten dollars to "all my children" stating that her "son Henry is to pay them from her estate"
There are two women who could be my jacob's mother in the 1820 census. One named Catherine E Beem and the other Elizabeth Beem.
Does anyone have information about the children of either one of these women.?
