On 23 Dec 1852 in Copiah County, MS, John N. Beasley marries Sarah F. Cammack, daughter of Thomas S. Cammack b: 1 June 1784 Ireland and Jemima McLemore b: c1789 NC. John and Sarah lose their 1st baby on 14 April 1855. John and Sarah F. Beasley are not found in the 1860 census. On 14 Sept. 1869 in Copiah County, MS, John N. and Sarah F. (Cammack) Beasley lose another baby also buried in Crystal Springs Cemetery with Sarah Francis Cammack Beasley's parents.
In the 1870 census for Crystal Springs, Copiah County, MS, John's middle initial looks like a W but should be a N. and b: 1828 MS, listed as a farmer along with his wife Sarah F. b: 1834 w/ a daughter Francis b: 1857 and son Fletcher b: 1863 who is John Fletcher Beasley.
In the 1880 census now in Avoyelles, LA, John's middle initial listed by Ancestry.com as a W. but it is clearly an N. b: 1831 MS and his parents were both born in NC and John is listed as a laborer as seems to be the job title of working males in that census. John is found with wife Sarah b: 1835 MS whose dad was born in Ireland and mom born in NC. They are found with son Fletcher b: 1864 MS and son Walter b: 1875 MS.
The 1890 Census is fragmented so we do not have it to research. John N. Beasley must have died between the 1880 census in Avoyelles, LA and the 1900 census of Morgan City, St. Mary, LA which is a 20 year span but they clearly were living in the Louisiana area.
The 1900 Census dated 16 June for Morgan City, St. Mary, Louisiana, 6th Ward on 4th St., we find Widow Sarah F. Beasley b: Mar 1833 MS, – 67 years old living with her son John Fletcher Beasley b: Aug 1863 MS.
Besides Fletcher and the two babies, she had a son named Walter Beasley, b. 1874/75.
Sarah F. Cammack/Camak kept the spelling of her surname as, "CAMAK," because she said it had been how her father, Thomas S. Camak/Cammack, had spelled it. Her siblings adopted the spelling of their surname as, "Cammack" but Sarah did not.
