Generation No. 1

Notes for R A BEATY:

R A Beatty was born in Ireland and came to America around late 1700 or early 1800.  He was married twice (we are kin by his first marriage). His sons could not get along with their new step mother so Alford, Robert & Johnny ran away and came to Texas.  Robert was 14 at the time.  Robert saw his father once more when he and his daughter (Fairy Kathleen) went back to see him in 1908.  The first RA Beatty was 98 years old when he died at Americus, GA (the county seat of Plains, GA.  It is about 10-12 miles from Americus.  R A Beatty was court clerk there for many years. RA owned 600 acres in Americus GA.
