Sarah Esther Antrim Beals
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1724
Prince George's County
Maryland, USA
Death: Jul. 6, 1813
Highland County
Ohio, USA

Sarah married Rev Thomas Beals Jr on 12 Sep 1741 at Cold Springs Meeting House in Monocacy, Carols Manor, Prince Georges Co MD. They had at least thirteen children, five sons and eight daughters.

Abt 1801, the widow Sarah joined her sons and their families in a move from Adelphia to Lees Creek.

Her maiden name is still in dispute among researchers, but it appeared to me that the letter T was mis-transcribed as a K; just this researcher's opinion. Her father is either David Antrim or Richard Ancram. This research is ongoing, but so far it appears she was born Antrim.

Roots & Shoots, Vol. 28, No. 1, Pg. 3, Spring 2006:
"The Fairfield Cemetery is next to the Fairfield Meetinghouse. This venerable burying ground contains the graves for the brave pioneers who settled the area. Visitors will find the grave of Sarah Beals, widow of Thomas Beals who was at the forefront of Quaker migration into Southern Ohio. Jean Wallis tells us that Sarah Beals was born in 1724 and has the distinction of being the oldest person, as to date of birth, to be buried in Highland County with a tombstone inscription. Sarah died in 1813 at the age of 89 and her grave is the one closest to the door of the Meetinghouse."

Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, by William Wade Hinshaw, Genealogical Publishing Co, Baltimore MD, 7 Volumes, 1936, 1960, 1973:
Vol V, Pg 221
"1813, 7, 6. Sarah d ae 89 bur Fairfield."
