"By the Grace of God Free and Independent; To Mary Jane Harris, Sarah Ann Ray, and Miles A. Beach, whose respective places of residence are unknown, Martha Andrews, residing at Rushford, Allegany County, N.Y.; Lewis Beach and Mehetabel Williams, both residing at Tyrone, Schuyler Country, N.Y.; Daniel Beach, residing at Watkins, Schuyler County, N.Y.; and Sally Swarthout, residing at Muir, Iona County, Mich., heirs at law and next of kin of Grace Ann Beach, late of the town of Tyrone, in the County of Schuyler ..."

"Styles Beach, one of the early settlers of Tyrone, came from Connecticut to Oneida county, at the commencement of the century. ... The family next removed to Onondaga county, and in 1814 can on to Tyrone. They were four days making the journey of 60 miles, Cayuga Bridge, Geneva, Penn Yan and Wayne. ...

Mr. Beach settled near Crystal Springs in what is known as Jordan Hollow, on the farm now occupied by Dr. Rogers ...
Mr. Beach brought out the improvements of one Sample. They consisted of a small clearing and an unfinished log house. There was no fire-place and for several weeks the family cooking had to be done out of doors, until a fire-place and "stick chimney" had been built.

The family remained here until 1821, when they moved to the present residence of Obadiah and his son, Lewis. There were two sons, Miles and Obadiah, and six daughters. Miles went to Texas in 1858, and has since died. Obadiah is still living in Tyrone. The daughters were married and moved outside of Schuyler; one married a Robinson, one a Sunderlin, and another a Swartout. ...

In Common with the other early settlers, Mr. Beach's family suffered from the "cold season." Obadiah remembers that the reapers worked in harvest with coats on, and that he himself suffered with cold in carrying sheaves together. The next year there was great scarcity. They were without bread for days together, and the half-ripened rye was dried so that it could be ground, while wheat too soft for grinding, was boiled in the berry to afford a change of diet. ..." - Watkins Express, Wed., June 29, 1876.
