    Notes 
    • 78. Beall- Referring to query No. 85, Constitution of June 30th, it is much to be regretted that more complete family records have not been kept. I am a grandson of GENERAL FREDERICK BEALL. I have been keeping a record of his branch of the family, and for thirty years, or longer have made notes of such information relating to other branches as fell in my way, but have nothing relating to the descendants of Josiah Beall, or of any Beall who married a Miss Cotton. My information is that a sister of Josiah, who was my grandfather's brother, married a Mr. Cotton, but my information may be at fault. I think, however, that the fact is in the knowledge of a sister of mine, and I will at once write to ascertain. I have other correspondents who may be able to give light on the subject of the query. I presume the person desiring information has already traced the line back. If he (or she) has, I would be glad to know whether he has followed it farther than I have been able to do- that is, to Thaddeus Beall, my great grandfather.

      From him the line runs thus:

      Thaddeus Beall married his cousin, Jane Beall, a sister of Daniel, who married Martha Peyton. Thaddeus and Jane had Children:

      Frederick (my grandfather, late of Campbell county, Ga.)
      Thaddeus (late of Chambers county, Ala.)
      Jerry (late of Milledgeville.)
      Elias.
      Samuel (late of Irwinton, Ga.)
      Josiah.
      Walter.
      Amelia (Mrs. William Reese, of Putnam county, Ga.)
      Lucy (Mrs. Cotton).
      Maezah (Mrs. Thomas Dent).
      Ama (Mrs. Watty Dent).

      Frederick Beall married Martha Peyton Beall, his cousin, daughter of Daniel and Martha Peyton Beall. My father was General William Beall, of Carroll county. He has a cousin in Josiah who lived at Griffin, Ga., in antebellum days, and probably emigrated to Texas. He had also a brother of that name who emigrated to Denton county, Texas. If I can do anything in the way of assisting to obtain the information desired for those in whose behalf the query (No. 85) is published, you may command me.

      Very respectfully,

      John B. Beall.
      Birmingham, Ala.
