Birth: Apr. 24, 1857
Anson County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Apr. 1, 1940
Anson County
North Carolina, USA

John Beachum was the second son and third of fourteen children born to Jeremiah Washington Beachum (1830-1910) and Mary Jane Taylor (1836-1882) who were married in 1853. He used R. as a middle initial, but the family Bible lists his middle name as Armeanous. John grew up in rural Anson County, and married Mary Anne Bowers (1864-1918, daughter of Wiley Bowers and Mary O'Neal) a distant cousin, on 8 Jan. 1885. They had eleven children. After Mary Anne's death, he married Hattie F. Davis, the widow Parker, but I do not believe there were any children born of this marriage. The home that John built in the 1880s is still standing, or was when last I was in Anson County in 2004, and at that time was being lived in by one of his granddaughters, who has since passed away. The children of John Beachum and Mary Anne Bowers were:
