HUGH CEPHAS BEATTY was born April 25, 1854, thought to be Butler Co. He went west in 1879 with the Thomas M. GILL family (wife Savilla) and was listed as a nephew in the 1880 census for Osage Co., KS.

Clayton Beatty, last living grandson of HUGH, remembers him saying that his parents were killed and the children were farmed out to other family members. Clayton told me that Hugh often wondered what happened to his brothers and sisters.

Last week I started going through every single GILL family I could find in 1870 census for Slippery Rock, Butler Co., and I found HUGH as a 16 year old, living with HIRAM GILL, brother to Thomas M. GILL. I could find no Hiram GILL in the 1860 census, but did find Hiram as a 6 yr old in the 1850 census for Slippery Rock. Nowhere could I find HUGH BEATTY. Where is he for 1860 census and with what family?

1870 Slippery Rock., Butler Co.PA

Does anyone have a BEATTY, in the 1860 census for PA, with a 6 yr old son Hugh?

Does anyone have a BEATTY married to a GILL about 1844-1854?

Does anyone have a BEATTY married to a MOREHEAD about 1844-1854?

Please contact K. Henn with information on this family.
