There seems to be much confusion as to just who Hannah belonged to. Have been in contact with another Beatty relative. Family history stated that Hannah was the daughter of John DeFord and Nancy Hopwood.John married Lydia Bromfield after Nancy's death and had a son,Nathan. John DeFord died at the age of 102 and is buried in Carroll Co,OH. Hannah died about 1846. John Beatty then married Mary Jane Hill. John traveled to IA in 1851 or so and entered land. He then returned to WV and sold his farm in March 1852. He moved his family to IA via the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers. He died of cholera at St. Louis,MO 6 Apr 1852 and is buried there. His widow and children continued on to Clayton Co.,IA where he had entered land and where his children from his marriage to Hannah DeFord were already residing. Hope this is of some help to all who are researching the DeFord/Beatty lines.
