John Beals

Birth: 1717
Chester County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1796
Guilford County
North Carolina, USA

John Beals was born the 17th of 2d mo 1717 in Chester County, PA, the son of John and Sarah (Bowater) Beals. He married about 1738 to Margaret Hunt, almost certainly under the care of Hopewell Monthly Meeting in Frederick County, Virginia. Some secondary sources give a marriage date of 13 May, but this can not be proven using primary sources. Friends meeting records would not have used a "pagan" date of a named month, but would have used a numbered month. In 1758 the records for the Hopewell Meeting burned in a house fire, so there are no contemporary records of their marriage. In 1758 John and Margaret were received at New Garden Friends Meeting from Hopewell, although they had probably moved south earlier. John and his wife's deaths are recorded in the records of Centre Friends Meeting in Guilford County with the notation that they are buried at New Garden. Their graves are unmarked after the manner of early Friends.
