Hi! I am a Beaty descendent. My great-grandfather, Charles E. Beaty, was a brother of your great-grandfather, Eugene S. Beaty. Both lived in Nebraska and worked as builders/contractors. My grandfather was Glen Phelps Beaty and my momHelen Jean Beaty Phillips. There are many active Beaty descendents on Ancestry.com. One has an earlier post on this forum under her name, Charlene Beaty Bailey. The post was dated June 20, 1998. She is also found under the name Charlene Swankie - quite active on a blog you can "google." She describes a "genealogy lab on wheels." It's all boxed up now, so may be hard for her to provide much information.
