Hi, I saw your name and was curious.I am a Beams descendant from Oneonta, Otsego county, New York.My 3rd great grandfather, Harvey Dewitt Beams b. 1861 in Oneonta married there and later moved to Iowa then Idaho.
While researching to find his parents, I came across a Charles Beams who married a Rachel Odell d/o George Odell and Ella Zurner between Sep 7, 1929 and July 8, 1931.
Charles was the son of Benjamin Beams and Anna Woodcock.
Not sure if there is any connection, but I figured it couldn't hurt
