Descendants of Leon G. Beatty

By Robert Lane

 

First Generation

 

1.  Leon G. Beatty1–2 was born about 1704.

 

Marvin Beatty reported the following around 2000: "It is possible that Walter is descended from John Beatty as he had several sons who scattered throughout the south.  It is also possible that he was a descendant of John and Margaret Montgomery Beatty of Chester County, Pennsylvania."  As more information has become readily available, researchers have suggested Leon Beaty and Jean Howitt as Walter's parents.  Jean appears in tax records in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania.  This information on Walter's parents should be considered to be unproven, perhaps even speculative.

 

He died about 1772 at the age of 68 in Cumberland, Pennsylvania, United States.

 

Leon G. Beatty and Jean Howitt were married about 1730.  Jean Howitt1 was born in 1712.  She died in 1772 at the age of 60 in Cumberland, Pennsylvania, United States.

 

Leon G. Beatty and Jean Howitt had the following child:

 

              2              i.   Walter Beatty, born 1752.

 

 

 

Note: This surname has many different spellings, with some of the more common spellings being Beatty, Beaty and Baty.  Many times, an individual’s surname would be spelled differently in various records.  This document uses a standard spelling of Beatty.  Researchers should decide for themselves which spelling applies to a specific person.

 


 

Second Generation

 

2.  Walter Beatty1,3–4 was born in 1752 in Pennsylvania, United States.  Marvin Beatty reported that he was able to determine this date from Walter's pension records.

 

He served in the military about 1775 in The American Revolutionary War.  He enlisted in Captain Robert Adams' company, Colonel Irvine's 6th Pennsylvania regiment in September 1775, in Cumberland Co., PA.  He went on an expedition to Canada, fought in the battle of Three Rivers on June 8, 1776, and in some skirmishes.  He was discharged on October 25, 1776 at Fort George due to ill health.  He later served frequent tours with the Virginia Militia and was in battles at Allamance, Guilford, Haw River, and others.

 

He immigrated before 1809 to Hawkins, Tennessee, United States.  He is listed in the county's 1809 tax records.  Some research report that he immigrated around 1790.  If the Walter Beatty found in the 1790 and 1800 censuses is the correct one, this date appears to be incorrect.

 

He appeared in the census in 1790 in Franklin, Pennsylvania, United States.  It lists 1 male under 16, 5 males 16-over and 6 females.  He appeared in the census in 1800 in Franklin, Pennsylvania, United States.  It lists 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male 15-25 , 1 male 45-over, 2 females under 10, 2 males 10-15 and 1 female 45-over.  He appeared in the census in 1830 in Hawkins, Tennessee, United States.  It lists 1 male 70-80 and 1 female 60-70.

 

He died on July 3, 1834 at the age of 82 in Hawkins, Tennessee, United States.  This date was reported in U.S. Pensioners, 1818-1872, for East Tennessee.

 

Walter Beatty and Mary Miller were married in 1772 in Cumberland, Pennsylvania, United States.  Mary Miller3–5, daughter of Robert Miller, was born about 1754 in Pennsylvania, United States.  Some sources place the date around 1860.  She appeared in the census in 1830 in Hawkins, Tennessee, United States.  She died in 1840 at the age of 86 in Hawkins, Tennessee, United States.

 

Walter Beatty and Mary Miller had the following children:

I see from my house by the side of the road,
By the side of the highway of life,
The men who press with the ardor of hope,
The men who are faint with the strife,
But I turn not away from their smiles nor their tears
Both parts of an infinite plan--
Let me live in a house by the side of the road
And be a friend to man
."

 

He was buried at Ames Chapel Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.

The Springs Valley Herald reported "Again we are made to realize that life is uncertain and death is sure, as we come into this sanctuary this afternoon to pay our respects to our loved one and friend, who believed in the words of the Psalmist who said, 'God is our refuge and strength in time of trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be removed, and the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.'  Amanda Louisa Whittinghill was born January 4, 1882, at Hillham, Indiana, to Dr. Benjamin F. and Matilda Weller Whittinghill, and departed from this life on January 26, 1959, at the age of 77 years and 22 days.  In the year of 1901, she was united in marriage to Thomas G. Ellis, who was well known in this county.  To this union were born six children, four of whom have preceded her in death--Lawrence and Enid in infancy, Vivian Ellis Howard in 1944, and Arnold G. Ellis in 1956.  Surviving are a daughter, Rose Evelyn Ellis, and a son, Frank A. Ellis, both of Indianapolis; a son-in-law, Vane R. Howard, Hammond, Indiana, and two daughters-in-law, Elizabeth Ellis, Indianapolis, and Kathleen Ellis, West Baden, Indiana, and one sister, Sophia J. Ellis, Cuzco, Ind.; one brother, J. Logan Whittinghill of Ellsworth, Ind.; eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, and a number of nieces and nephews.  Mr. and Mrs. Ellis lived several years each in French Lick and Paoli, while Mr. Ellis was engaged in the business field and serving as a county official.  In 1933, they and son Arnold and family, moved to a farm near Ames Chapel.  Their home was known for its hospitality and a welcome was always extended to neighbors and friends.  It is in this home that the companion passed away in 1947, but after his passing Mrs. Ellis stayed in the home which she shared with her daughter, Rose.  It seemed she had borne a great deal of suffering in the loss of the different members of her family, but she seldom complained and still held to the Master's hand for strength and faith to carry on.  Then in 1956, the family was dealt another loss in the passing of Arnold, upon whom she had depended so greatly after the death of the companion.  For the last two and one half years, she had made her home with Rose, where she departed from this earth to her heavenly reward.  In 1944, she became a member of the Ames Chapel Methodist Church.  To the church and the community, she was known as Mom Ellis, and was always ready to serve her fellowman in any way she could, and until she moved to Indianapolis, she served as an officer in the Women's Society of Christian Service and as a part time Sunday School teacher.  After moving from this community, she established herself in a church nearby her home, and as late as last Sunday enjoyed being in God's house for worship.  She also was oldest member of the French Lick Order of Eastern Star, having received a fifty year membership pin several years ago.  We will always remember Mom Ellis as a quiet and loving person sitting at her desk reading good books and magazines, and in so doing stored a wealth of knowledge, which she passed on to others.  The youth in the church looked forward to her entertaining them in special programs, with readings and recitations, which she could so ably render. She lived a common life, but nature was one of her greatest interests and she spent many happy hours working among the flowers in her garden.  And we all realize that when we walk and work in the great out doors, we learn to appreciate to the fullest extent, the many wonders God has given us to enjoy.  And so it was with Mom, for as she walked and talked with Him, she saw the beauty of the Sunrise and Sunset, heard the song of the birds of the air, and felt the wind as it gently brushed her face.  There was a great love for music in her heart, and she knew a great deal about it, and her children were given the opportunity to accomplish much in the field of music and their accomplishment meant so much to her.  So let us not question the wisdom of the Master, when He quietly and tenderly called our loved one from us.  It was as she would have wished it to have been, and her Father in Heaven knows she was ready to answer His gentle knock upon her door and to hear His invitation to step from this earth, across the threshold into Heaven.  And we believe if we could hear words from her lips, she would say, 'It is good for me to draw near to God, for I have put all my trust in Him.'  Her life has been a good life and a challenge to us all to walk a little closer to the One who knows best and whose love passeth all understanding."  She was buried at Ames Chapel Cemetery in Orange, Indiana, United States.
