I have no clue where the rest of my previous message might have gone. It
must be out floating around in space somewhere. I am sure the message made
no sense unless it is all there, so let's try it again. I have never seen
the Rootsweb computer just chop off a message before.

I have been researching the Md. to Ky. Bealls and have identified several
that I would love to have some help on. I will send them over several days
to the list to see if anyone can help. Thanks.

Note number 4 below. Euphen/Uphen Beall of Thomas, m. William Tannehill. I
wonder if he might be a possible father of William Tannehill b. 1718 - bef.
1793., who married Sarah Harris, and whose daughter Rebecca married Walter
Beall of Samuel Beall and Elenor Brooke? Anyone have any thoughts on this?
Rebecca was Walter's second wife.

According to
>From the Walter V. Beall Gedcom:
Walter's first wife was Susannah Unknown.

Speaks as to the protection of "Beallsborough", named after Walter Beall, on
the fork of the Rolling Fork and Beech Fork rivers. A fort, also protected
by Goodwins/Goodins Station (fort) was erected there in 1780. Colonel Isaac
COX listed as one of the trustees.

I have more notes on Walter Beall, Sr. if It might help someone.
