Hi Virgil, I was wrong about my last posting. That Capt Samuel Beckwith is from the PA Beckwiths.
The information I got from Mahlon is that Samuel H. Smith "Grant's Shadow", the telegrapher for Ulysses Grant is as follows:
SAMUEL MARCH BECKWITH1812 CT >>>son of Samuel (1754 CT) and Martha (BURCHARD) >>>born 12 Feb 1812 CT...died 1855...buried Madison Street Cemetery, >>>Hamilton, Madison Co. >>>NY >>>married Elizabeth JONES (1809 NY-1884..buried Madison Street >>>Cemetery) >>>kids: David L. (1834 NY); Samuel (c1840 NY); Edward M. (c1843 NY); >>>George B. (c1848 >>>NY)
