Not all the Beckwith family moved to Nova Scotia during the 1750's. My Beckwith line moved from Lyme, CT in the late 700's and early 1800's to the Ashtabula Co, Ohio area. The Ashtabula Co. Genealogy Society has a lot of info. on that branch of the Beckwith family. My mother was a Beckwith, dau. of Geo. Sherman Beckwith, so I know what I am stating here to be correct. My line goes back to Matthew Beckwith, b. abt 1610 in England.
