I think there is just as good a chance that Ms. Beavert was born in Virginia to a John Beavert. She was (is) my ggggrandmother. My grandfather (years ago) took me to the approximate grave site of Wallace Jones, on a back country road between old America Junction and Cordova, AL.

Hi Ed, The source of the info I have is "The History of Walker County" by John Martin. Are you familiar with this work? Here is the quote that was sent to me: "Susan Beavert was born in England about 1780." From the same is additional info about William Wallace Jones: "Wallace Jones was born in England about 1775, where he learned the trade of millwright and cooper. He was a suitor for the hand of Susan Beavert, and upon meeting parental objections, the couple eloped from an English tavern at night and boarded a ship for America. They made their home for a short time in North Carolina before going to Walker County where Wallace died in 1856. Wallace, according to family tradition, settled along the Warrior River in Walker County prior to 1800." You may e-mail me directly if you like at graywind@megalink.net Thanks for getting in touch. Please let me know what you think of this info. Candace

I didn't mean to wait so long to get back with you. There is some very interesting data in "WORLD FAMILY TREE vOLUME 11, Tree # 234". Susan was born in either SC or NC to John Beavert who was born June 30, 1759 in Baltimore County, Maryland. Some of his descendants live in Birmingham, AL. Looks as if John was in the ARW as a private. Take care and let me hear from you. Ed Jones--edjo1@prodigy.net.

Hi Ed, Good to hear from you again. What did you think of the info in "History of Walker Co., AL"? I don't think I can get the info from WFT. Don't you have to buy it? Can you give me some highlights? Thanks. Candace

Good morning, Ms Gray. Happy New Year to you and yours.
1. I have always had problems with the elopement story. If they had come from England, settled enough in SC to have 4 kids and then come on to AL, I couldn't understand what kind of bounty she would have coming. I did find a record of a John Beavert having a Revolutionry War pension or bounty of somekind coming his way, but I can't find that screen any more. So now on to better things.

2. From WFT Vol. 11, Tree 234:---
From the notes of Thomas A. Beavert, great-grandson of Alsbury and Sarah Hughes Beavert: "John Beavert is the oldest progenitor, whose existence has been proven. He is listed in the 1790 96th District of SC Census, but by the 1830 Census he has moved to Williamson County, TN. In 1840 he has moved again and is found in Dekalb County, TN. He is listed as a Revolutionary War soldier and is between the age of 80 and 90. In 1840 he and his wife are the only ones in the household. John has made application for a RW pension while he was living in SC but the request was denied. In 1834 he made another request in Rutherford County, TN which was granted and he received $20 per annum. Apparently he died between 1840 and 1850 as his second wife, RACHEL, now a widow, is in the home of her daughter, Lucinda Beavert Woods in the 1850 Dekalb County, TN. Census."

Another entry in this same tree: "By John Beavert's testimony, he was born in Baltimore County, MD, June 30, 1759. He was living in Chatham County, NC, when he enlisted for service in the RW. He later moved to SC, then to TN. John was a private in the Company commanded by Captain Cholson and of the regiment commanded by Colonel Littral in the NC Line. Inscribed on the roll of West Tennessee at the rate of $20.00 per annum to commence on the first day of March 1834. Certificate of Pension filed the 20th day of July, 1834, Harris War Department. Arrears to the fourth day of March--$40.00: Semi-annual Allowance ending 4 September--$10.00. Total $50.00.
John Beavert died September 11, 1841 in Dekalb County, TN"

3. This same "Tree", in the Family Page Section, lists John Beavert and a nameless first wife as having two children, 1) Susannah Beavert, b. 1785 in NC. and married to Wallace Jones in SC. and 2) William Beavert.

4. This William Beavert has a lineage which is going today with family names such as Beavert, Hyche and Adams, apparently in the Birmingham, AL area. I am going to try to connect with them. I believe that Susan went after the pension of her father (?) rather than that of Wallace. Also, I keep seeing this name RACHEL attached to Wallace Jones, Sr. Not so. And there was no Wallace Jones, Jr. There was a William Wallace Jones, Jr., son of William Wallace Jones who was a son of Wallace and Susan.

Candace, I hope sheds some light on things. It does for me. Hope to hear from you. Ed Jones Yes the World Family Tree is a pay situation but it has been worth it.

An additional item, Candace. If you will go to Ancestry.com>search>record type>American Revolutionary War Rejected Pensions and look up John Beavert, you will see reference to this Rachel Beavert in Dekalb County, TN. Bye, Ed Jones (Yeah, another pay thing.)

I know this is an older post but there is a William Wallace Jone Jr married to Rachael Patty. This William " Wallace" Jones was born 1773 Newberry SC married Rachael Patty Nov 29 1794 in Saluda SC. This Wallace Jones was described in the writings of the Quakers as a feared and respected Militia man in SC. Wallace joined the Quaker religion in West Milton Miami Ohio where he also married Ruth Hollingsworth in Miami Ohio. He died in 1854 in Miami Co Ohio. It seems these Two William "Wallace" Jones were living side by side for awhile and I cannot tell which is which while they lived in SC.
