Stephen Beal was born on March 17, 1796 in Durham, Maine. He was the son of Lucy (Doughty) and Jonathan Beal, Jr.
Stephen married Charlotte Coombes Goold after October 28, 1818. They filed their marriage intent in Lisbon, Maine on October 28, 1818 . They also filed their marriage intent in Durham, Maine on October 20, 1818. Charlotte was the daughter of Ann (Adams) and Moses Goold. The Adams family line has a long history that branches out of York, Maine with President John Adams (2nd President of the United States) coming from a branch of this line. This Adams line had two family members killed in the York Massacre in January, 1692. The spelling of Goold can also be found spelled as Gould. Charlotte's middle name can also be found spelled as Coombs and Combs.
They had the following children:
All born in Andover, Maine, except Ann who was born in Lisbon, Maine.
i Ann Goold, b September 9, 1819
ii Moses Goold, b November 11, 1821
iii Stephen, b November 27, 1823

vi Charles Benson, b May 11, 1830
vii William, b February 27, 1832
viii Sophrona Briggs, b November 6, 1833
Charlotte and Stephen moved to Andover after 1819. Andover is about 60 miles north of Durham. This was a farming and a logging area.
Stephen lived in Durham, Andover and Lisbon, Maine. The 1830 United States Census Index shows a Stephen Beal living in Durham. But the Town of Andover records show that most of his family was born in Andover.
Stephen died on April 26, 1835 in Andover, Maine. He is buried at the Woodlawn Cemetery (along Route 5) in Andover, Maine. It is not known when Charlotte died or where she was buried.
