Surnames: Beavers, Russell, Headen, Robertson, Little, Harris
My ancestor Reuben Beavers was born 1783 in VA. He married Mary Headen, daughter of William Headen Jr. and Susannah Robertson. Reuben was a witness in GA to the will of William Headen Sr. in 1808. Reuben and Mary lived after that for awhile in St. Tammany Parish, LA then moved on to Caldwell Parish. He was the son of Robert Beavers and Jane Little. Robert was the son Thomas Beavers and Martha (Clack or Cargill), Thomas was the son of the immigrant John Beavers who was born 1695 in Ireland, and immigrated to NJ.
Reuben's son Albert K. Beavers (Civil War vet.) was my ancestor. He was married to Sarah L. Harris.
My query is: Who were Sarah Harris' parents. She was born in LA. Who were Jane Little's parents? (born 5 Mar 1750 NJ)
Who were Susannah Robertson's parents? She was born 1762 in GA, died bef. 1839 in LA)
Did William Headen Jr. leave a will?
Did Reuben Beavers leave a will.
Does anyone out there know anything about these families?

I noticed you had a Russell in your heading, but no mention of it in your notes....Do you have a Feby Russell in your mist...Feby was a 37 farm labor in 1870 and is listed with a Gore Family....It is the Gore family I am researching however., so was asking what the connection was between the families....Liz

Hello, I hope you are still out there. I found this post trying to find mention of Jane Little who married Robert Beavers. I too, am up to my neck in Beavers, Robertsons, and Headens. I have multiple crossovers. Does anyone have some definitive info on who Jane's parents are? I am willing to exchange any info I have found as well. Grcleve@aol.com
