Date: Tue, 27 Feb 2001 20:57:58 EST
I haven't been able to fit the Wm Franklin BEASLEY of Henry County into
any of the TN BEASLEY lines. The name Franklin runs rampant in my BEASLEY
line, though - or variances thereof. My ancestor of Humphreys County was a
William F. (probably Franklin) BEAZLEY/BEASLEY (ca 1765-1845 Humphreys Co,
TN) . He had a son William F. Jr (ca 1803 KY - aft 1880 ?). That William F.
had a son William F. (ca 1835 KY - 16 May 1884 Benton Co, TN).
Barnaby BEASLEY, s/o the above William F. Beazley, Sr. had a son Wm
Harrison BEASLEY (1840TN-1927OK) who named his son William Francis BEASLEY
(1872TN-1945OK); Another descendant of Wm. F. SR is named William Franklin
'Frank' BEASLEY (1898KY- 1974KY) and he named a son William Franklin BEASLEY
Jr. (1933 KY - ), and that Wm. Franklin named his son Andrew Franklin
BEASLEY (1967-). Another descendant of Wm. F. SR named William Levi BEASLEY
(1905KY-1990KY) named his son Wm. Franklin BEASLEY (1937KY - ).
