After receiving and accepting your recent edits for the members of this family, I will look up additional information in the cemetery records next week and add it to their pages. I'll send you a note when I'm done.

RE: Sarah Whitney Billups
Oh, thanks for sending me the story! I will probably see it tomorrow. I ran across much of your research while searching for John and Anna and Sarah. My great, great grandfather Samuel Byrne is buried in the other Billups cemetery, not that it matters in this instance, and maybe I even mentioned it before. I really feel close to the people (or records) in these cemeteries as my grandfather must have known some of them.

RE: Sarah Whitney Billups
I agree it is highly likely that this is your Sarah. I've been doing quite a bit of research on her myself today. On another note -- the tombstone photo of Anna Beck Hayzlett appears to be upside down, doesn't it?

RE: Sarah Whitney Billups
"Primary" Resources: Those that recount an event at or close to the time it happened; original records of events and may include: diaries, journals, state or federal census records, courthouse records such as deeds, will probates, birth or death records, baptism or marriage records. Also included as primary sources would be ship's passenger lists and military records.

I actually had to Google that, as I believe you're right that a Will should be considered primary--not sure what I was thinking. Are there two Sarah Billups? I realize there is some disagreement as to who her parents are and I'm in the middle of it. Missouri is good about digitizing, so I wish they'd hurry up with the years for Sarah so we can see her death certificate. I'm trying to keep her memorial neutral until the mystery is solved. I'm sorry if I'm wrong.

RE: Sarah Whitney Billups
Thank you for the very detailed information. I have added the first part and linked the mother in the Bio, rather than through parental relationship links; hopefully that is acceptable to you until a primary source document can be found.

Sarah Whitney Billups
Hi Sara, Thank you for suggesting a link to Sarah's mother. Can you please tell me you source? I would like to add it to the memorial. There has been speculation about Sarah and some of the Billups anecestral roots, so I would like to be sure it's in order. Thank you very much.

parents of Anna Beck Hayzlett
I believe Anna Beck Hayzlett might be Anna Cleary Beck of Mason County, WV. Her father possibly was Peter Beck/Peck and she appears in her grandfather's Augusta County, VA 1786 will as Anna Cleary Beck. Peter moved his family to Mason Co. VA/WV in 1801. Mason was part of Kanawha County at that time.

The marriage of John Hazlette to Anna Beck in Kanawha Co, VA in 1802 is the only possible candidate for Peter Beck/Peck's daughter that I have found in the area. I was wondering if you knew of other Becks in the Kanawha area?

Can you tell me more about Anna and this family?

Laura Mitchell Harris
Laura Mitchell and her husband Emer Harris were my great great grandparents. I don't have any thing on Margaret Hawkins family in my genealogy program. I did have a computer failure last year and lost most of what I had in there and have been trying to get stuff back together since then. Are you decended through Ephriam Hawkins?
