Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer living in Michigan who fills in many of his days with golf and woodworking.

But my favorite retirement activity is discovering my family genealogy history along with the stories and oral history as it has been passed down through the generations.

I have documented 7000+ family member's genealogy using MyHeritage software on a private family web site. Now I am adding some of my ancestors to Find A Grave to make some of my findings public.

Genealogy records available for any branches of my family if you are related to one of my documented memorials. Also fell free to use any of my posted photos. Higher quality versions are usually available for the asking.

John Henry Beighley Kickapoo cemetary
Hello Jack,

My name is Genece Tilts, and I am currently trying to get a membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution. I am a descendant of John Henry Beighley, who was married to Sarah Catherine Moon. John was born in Westmoreland, Penn, June 1, 1794 and died in Wisconsin but the date of death on the Find A Grave is 1860, however, I found a census source in 1870 that he was living with his son, Henry, and daughter in law, Julia. in Wyoming, Iowa Co, Wisconsin. I am thinking that he probably died around that time. Can you tell me if the 1860 date is incorrect and what would be the exact date of death?
I would really appreciate your time.
Thank you,

Agree with Theresa, there is no Lonie.

Louie shows up as Lewis/Louis on various records that are taken by others who could very easily not have used the spelling he actually used.

Louie F.West
Louie's sibling are as follows:

Della West Walker b.1882 pending dod, buried Elmwood cemetery Yale, Michigan next to her husband.
Minnie Mae West May b.1900 d.1967 buried in Indiana next to her husband.
Harry Carter West b.1892 d.1975 is buried in Elmwood cemetery Yale, Michigan
There is no Lonie, Blanche or Mary. I do believe someone mistook Louie for Lonie and Blanche and Mary must belong to "Bettie"...there is no other family member adding to the info, the person sending messages to you is not a relative.
Thank you, Theresa West

Bertha West
As the grandaughter of Bertha West I can attest that she was never called Bettie, I think it is the wrong family if a "relative" suggested that.My great grandmother was also Bertha maybe she answered to Bettie?
