I am beginning research on my Beasley/Beesley/Fenix/Phenix lines.
I am interested in the following individuals who may have lived in the Simpson Co KY/Sumner Co TN area and possibly moved to MO/ARK. Fenix: (Sumner Co. Marriage Records David O. 1837 to Mary Meador Ruth 1841 to John F. Meador Elizabeth 1843 to Joseph Beesley (my line) Rebecca 1849 to James Leffler Frederick/Fred N 1850 to Martha Hambright Parthena 1858 to John Holleman
Phenix: Sarah to James Beasley.
I have also found a Martha Phenix who married James Monroe Hasten (name also seen has Hastin/Hasting/Hastings)
Sarah Phenix-James Beasley's daughter Rebecca is found living in the Hasten household in 1870 and have found death record for Martha's son which names his parents as Martha Phenix and James Monroe Hasten.Sarah Phenix Beasley died prior to 1870 and James remarried another woman named Sarah.Suspect Rebecca went to live with her maternal aunt after her own mother's death.
James Beasley is brother to Joseph Beesley who married Elizabeth Fenix.Suspect Elizabeth and Sarah may be related.
