The son of Samuel & Sarah (Butts) McBeth, in 1860 he was a laborer living in Southampton Township, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania.

A Civil War veteran, he was drafted in Chambersburg October 16, 1862, although if the birth date shown above (from his death certificate) is accurate, he was underage and may have enlisted as a substitute. Censuses, however, list him as born in 1843, and this regiments compiled military service records do not identify substitutes. He mustered into federal service at Chambersburg November 1 as a private with Co. F, 158th Pennsylvania Infantry (aka "Drafted Militia"), and honorably discharged with his company August 12, 1863.

He was a widower at the time of his death, but his wife's name is unknown, as are those of any children from the union. He died in Letterkenny Township, Franklin County, from "uremia" due to an "enlarged prostate."
