Abraham P. Beachy, third son of Peter A. and Ann (Livingood) Beachy, was born in Elk Lick township, January 23, 1828. He was educated in the subscription schools taught by J. J. Stutzman. He was reared on the home farm, on which he was actively engaged from early youth, and was taught the value of industry and a horror of idleness. On attaining manhood he rented the home farm from his father and worked it for three years, at the expiration of which time he becamse the owner by purchase. He added to the farm from time to time until he was the owner of a landed estate of six hundred acres in Somerset county and a section of land in Nebraska. He was one of the prosperous, honored men of his county, and could have had any political office, but he always refused to allow his name to be used as a candidate, preferring to lead a quiet, retired life. He was a staunch friend of the cause of education and for many years was a school director. He was a deacon of the German Baptist church. He was at first an old line Whig, but later a Republican.
