My ancestor Alexander Beall stayed in Montgomery Co, MD, but several of his children "went west".Now a pattern is emerging that they went to Jefferson Co, Ohio.As I put things together, this scenario -- still just hypothetical -- emerges:
About autumn 1802 Francis Pastors and wife Stacy Beall, Thomas Busey and wife Elizabeth Beall, and Andrew Sewell and wife Eleanor Beall travel from Montgomery Co, MD to Warren Township, Jefferson Co, Ohio, and spend the winter getting settled.Eleanor and Andrew had a baby in Montgomery County in July 1802;Francis Pastors witnessed a will in March 1803.
A couple of years later, Asa Beall with wife and younger brothers John and Samuel Beall also travelled to Warren Township.
I'm looking for any Jefferson County information about their lives and doings once they got there.I have children and grandchildren for some but not all of these families;I'm really looking for land transactions, wills, and especially obituaries that would tell about their lives.
A dairy of their travel from Maryland to Ohio would be really neat, but that's asking for the moon!
