Have no clue why they moved, however other info that I have on Daniel H. Beckwith is from the: Michigan Volunteers 1861-1865Pg 12 'Wayland Township,MI- Enlisted in company E. Engineers and Mechanics, Aug 23, 1864, at Kalamazoo, for 1 year, age 25.Mustered Aug 26, 1864.Admitted to Harper Hospital July 5, 1865. Discharged at Detroit, MI. July 29, 1865. In battles of Atlanta, Ga, And Bentonville, NC. Present residence. Brandle, MI.
I am in Wyoming,Michigan a suburb of Grand Rapids and a little North of Allegan Co where my Beckwiths were settled.
The above info possibly will not help anything, but thought I would insert it in case it came up with a name of anyplace that connected with any other Beckwiths locations.
