Thomas and Jane (Mullinix) Beaty
Thomas Beaty was born in the Lick Creek Valley region of KY in 1801. He was the son of Revolutionary War soldier Andrew and Elizabeth (Cooper). His father was born in PA in 1760. Thomas's known brothers and sisters were: William, Alexander, Andrew, and Agnes, b. 1804.

Jane was born in 1802 in KY. She was the daughter of Nathaniel Mullinix and Sally Mayberry. Nathaniel was from NC.

Thomas and Jane were married February 4, 1821 and were the parents of eleven children: Elizabeth (1822-1888), Nancy Agnes (1824-1899), John Andrew (1827 about 1868), Alexander Greene (1830-1836), Nathaniel Priam (1832-1862), Thomas Jefferson (1835-?), Nina Jane (1838-1855), Martha Ann (1840-1885), William Hagan (1843-about 1864), Matilda (1846-1918), and Hiram Cyrus (1849-1915).

Two of Thomas and Jane's children married Kings. Elizabeth married James King and Nancy married Robert King. Nina Jane married Hawk Reagan. Martha Ann married George Washington Hill. Matilda married Sampson Stephens, and Hiram married Catherine Beaty. There is no marriage record for the other children.

Nathaniel Priam and William Hagan both died during the Civil War. Nathaniel was killed during the Battle of Mill Springs, KY and William died as a prisoner of war at the Belie Island Prison Camp at Richmond, VA.

Many people knew Thomas as "Col. Tom". He was a highly respected man and the title "Col." apparently was an honorary one, having nothing to do with military rank. Thomas and Jane raised their family, as did their son Hiram and grandson Thomas, on the headwaters of Little Crab. Thomas died January 7, 1893. They are both buried in the Joel Beaty Cemetery at Riverton.

From the Historical Society

H. C. Beaty states "Thomas Beaty departed this life on the 1st day of January 1881 after remaining in a perfect state of helplessness for 15 years during the whole of this time he could not walk without help and there was ten years of this time that he was not out of his bed without being lifted by affiant or some one else and on account of this long continued sickness affiant had to be at home all the time or have some one there that could wait on him which came very near ruining affiant financially."
