I do not believe that 1780 John Beaty was the son of John Beaty & Margaret Montgomery.The online Beaty Project 2000 researchers have pretty much established that they are not his parents.This is contrary to what early Fentress Co. researchers thought.In a will from John B. Rodgers to 1780 John Beaty in which John is given 100 acres of land he is referred to as John Beaty, Sr., which indicates to me that he was not the son of a John Beaty.
Do you know the maiden name of Abagail, wife of 1780 John?
