IN HOPES THAT A BECKHAM EXPERT CAN HELP CONNECT THESE DOTS!
More info. about Mary A. Beckham aka:Mary Antoinette (Nettie)BECKHAM Williams:
Mary was born in Mississippi abt.1843 Mother was born in Georgia. Father was born in South Carolina. (or North Carolina depending on Census year) She married at 16yrs. so would only be on 1850 Census with her BECKHAM relatives.
After following the NC/SC Beckham family, I feel confident that she fits into it, just not certain how. I am following the migration of Beckham's from the Carolina's to Mississippi, then on to Texas.
