Holli, I also picked up on the mention of Jesse Sacket, could be a connection here. Also note the mention of John Hopwood further down in the message. As I recall the Hopwoods also have a connection to L17.

Hi,
In our family sketch, "...George, who in 1849 in company with Jesse Sacket,
of Colesburg, Iowa, walked across the plains to California..." Could L-17
George Beatty be related to Jesse Sacket? L-17 was in PA/VA(now WVA) before
moving to Iowa. What line is it that is mentions William and Mary Tarr
Beatty dau. Mary Ann married Jesse Sackett?
