*All data is documented from marriage and census records, local history books, family genealogy books and newspaper obituaries.
**Marriage records list Elizabeth’s last name as Earch. The Hochstetler Book lists her last name as Eric. I’ve found sources that list her last name as Smiley. My grandmother, Ida Beechy Miller stated that we have Casebeer connections, but that is a line yet to be researched.
*** Data documented from the Solomon Beechy Family Bible. The Beechy family has Amish and Mennonite roots.
