RE: [jacksongenealogy] William M. Beavers
I am Ruby Headrick Brown. I was raised in Jackson County, AL at Pisgah.
There were a lot of Beavers who lived in my community. I've been gone from
the area and have lost touch with a lot of old friends; but my sister still
lives there. I will ask around and see what I can find out when I get a
chance to go see her. There are many old-line families living in the area.
Many of them were able to homestead land about that time. Many of them
helped with the Indian Removal in 1829 and thus were allowed to homestead
large tracts of land-at least that is what I have been told. If William
were a homesteader, they will have a record at Scottsboro, AL, the county
seat, and someone there might be able to Photostat a copy for you.
Who are some of the other families in your line? There are many Allen's
Grays, Hicks, Starkey's, etc. in the area. All of these had large families
and were some of the first white settlers in the area. Some of them
probably intermarried. I hope this helps.

Hi! I am new to this board. What a great resource. I am trying to
find info on William M. Beavers. He was born 10/1/1808 in Burke
County and died 11/25/1875 in Jackson County supposedly in the old
Talliaferro/Toliver cemetary. His wife was Emily or a variation on
that name. His children were Millie Rose, Elizabeth, John L., Mary A.
(Polly),Sarah, Eliza, James R., Martha, Alice, and William C.
Beavers. William M. Beavers is mentioned in the 1870 census, but I
cannot find any other references about his parents. I really need
any advice or information anyone can give me as I have met the
proverbial brick wall. Thank you all!
- I have a little information on a Granville M. Beavers
who married into my family. I would be happy to share
if you think he fits in with yours.

- Actually, we believe that William married an Emily or possibly Amelia
Bicknell. William's daughter Millie Rose (my line) married Thomas
Jefferson Robertson who was the son of Warning Peter Robertson and
Frances Holmes Callaway (daughter of Colonel Richard Callaway Jr. of
Boonesborough KY). I have been told that William was buried in the
Old Taliaferro or Tolliver Cemetary. Supposedly, he was mentioned in
the book Paint Rock Valley Pioneers. His tombstone is quoted in the
book I believe. I have seen William's name in an idex of the 1870
Jackson County Census, but not the actual census. So other than his
name, I do not know what the census covers. I am at a brick wall. I
do not know his parents names. Take care and thank you for

Descendants of Granville M. Beavers
1. Granville M. Beavers- .
Granville married Elizabeth Higgins McCutchen-
[MRIN:958], daughter of
William Walker McCutchen Jr- and Margarette
Harrsion-, on 12 Jan
1876 in Marshall County, Al. (Elizabeth Higgins
McCutchen- was born

They had the following children:

The one clue I can give you is there is a much earlier
Granville Beavers I ran across in posting a message to
the Beavers Genforum page. It seems to me that this
might be a family name. Go to the Beavers Genforum
page and do a search for Granville.
I hope this eventually helps.
