Re: A.J.Beaty b.1848 married to Didama b.1850 Fentress Co. TN
Gerri, I used my cousin's DAR application record for my Beaty lineage.The Smith, Bowers, Hull and Beaty Family History by Jack Masters, 1991 pg.351, 352, is listed as a source of information. Rev.war patriot Andrew Beaty c.1758 was married to Elizabeth Cooper c.1760. Their children as listed on pension request for survivors benefits dated 7 Aug 1837 Fentress Co. TN, are Alexander, William Thomas, Andrew, Nancy Agnes (m. Jonathan B. Hull), Allen (my A.J.'s father married to Mary X) and Thomas. Zilpha and Abraham are also listed as children of Andrew and Elizabeth.(This info from the DAR app.)
In the Smith and Bowers book pg. 351 apparently John Beaty Sr.c.1725 married first Margaret Montgomery (my Rev.War Andrew's parents) and second, unknown in Rowan Co. N.C. John Beaty Jr. b. 1780 in N.C. died c.1840 Burial in Dickson Cem.,Fentress Co.,TN is listed as one of three sons. I don't have the book but your John was on one of two pages I have copies of. I suggest you check this book to see if there is more info on your ancestors.
