Re: Beatty - Loudoun to Ohio (att. Art & Irita)


Your best bet would be to join the Loudoun list at rootsweb. I don't see much in earlier records - except for the very early sale of a slave named Lawson - 2 years old in 1793, along with brother Loudoun and mother Charlotte from estate of Thomas THORNTON - a possible for father of your Lawson given naming patterns - can't tell from records who bought him. What is interesting that no "Lawson's" are listed in wills between 1841- 1879.

There may be some info on his hire - estate accounts which show payments for him - another place to contact is Balch Library - they may be able to point you in the right direction.

As I said earlier - quite a few slaves were freed by Beatty's - lots of freed slaves from Loudoun wound up in Ohio - many of them in Muskingum county.

I've put an alert in the subject line to Art & Irita - since they have so many records available for VA to OH folks - they may find something useful for you as well

For their information:

BEATTY, LAWSON (1860 U.S. Census)
Ohio , MUSKINGUM, FALLS TWP, Age 44, Male, Race: Mulatto, Born: VA
Series: M653 Roll: 1018 Page: 64
