A property deed states that James Beathe and Mary (Pullin), his wife, owned land as follows: A certain parcel of land lying and being in Pendleton County (now Highland County), Virginia on the Crab Run, a branch of the Bullpasture River containning eighty acres (more or less) -to wit: beginning at a white oak corner to Martin Moyers and turning north 61 west-80 poles to a chestnut and white oak on west side of a hill, north 25 west-60 poles to a gum and dogwood sapling, north 25 east-78 poles to a chestnut and spainsh oak on hillside, south 61 east-40 poles to a sugar tree, south 16 east-20 poles to a double sugar tree, south 58 east-64 poles to hickory and sugar tree, north 63 east-36 poles to a chestnut and black oak side of hill near a swamp, south 42-16 poles to two sugar trees corner to the said Moyers and with his line, south 40 weat-120 poles to the beginning.
Most Beathe researchers believes that James and Mary are buried on the family farm. Most likely there was a small family cemetery at one time but disappeared over the years.
James Beathe, born in Virginia, married Mary Ann Pullin in 1810, Bath County, Virginia. Mary's father, Samuel Puillin, was a Revolution War soldier. Their children were: Joseph, James, Malinda, John, Samuel, Eliza, Frances, Robert, William and Peter. William and Peter served Virgina during the Civil War and Peter was killed at Port Republic.
