Is there any information on the Beardsley family in reference books that you
have available? I am particularly interested in Benejah Beardsley and his
wife Elspeth Grant who were residents of Monticello before 1840. Their
daughter, Margaret E., married Daniel Varvel in 1840. Elspeth Grant
Beardsley, according to the obituary of her daughter Margaret, was a second
cousin to Ulysses S. Grant. Is there any other Grant information from Jones
County that might confirm this--parents of Elspeth,etc?
Is there any clue as to who were the parents of Benejah Beardsley? Where
were they living before they came to Jones County?
Thank you for any help that you can give me.
