I just found your genforum posting today. So, would you be descended through John W. McBeth. I am descended through John's brother, Abraham Lincoln McBeth. I have a cousin that lives near Walla Walla, Washington. I would like to exchange information with you on these families. We will be going to Oregon in May to visit my husbands family. They live in Lake Oswego, Oregon. That is near Portland. We will probably be going over to Washington to visit my cousins also. Talk to you later. Bye.
