I am descended from a John McBeath who was raised by a guardian of the same name-Report filed around 1823 in Russell co. KY; which was formed from Wayne in 1820. Have many co. records and census from Russell, Andrew & Robert were common McBeath names. My difficulty is idendentifying the parents of John McBeath,Jr. and possibly his brother (alexander? don't have records with me) for whom report was filed 1825. 1st John stated in census record as born Virginia 1790.
