Harris, started three churches.

Saturday, June 21, 2003 Thomas & Sarah Beatty of Montgomery County, Kentucky

Thomas is the oldest established ancestor that has been traced for this Beatty family. Thomas is identified by his will as the father of Nancy "Batty" (sic) who married Joseph See. His relationship to the See family is also identified through family recollection. There is a strong See family tradition that Joseph See Jr. was the son of Nancy Batty. These traditions are reflected in death certificates and early oral family history in at least two branches of the See family. The tradition of a Beatty ancestress was recalled well into the 19th century; however, beyond the name recognition no additional oral family history remains about the family today. The Beatty family is traced to Montgomery County, Kentucky where Thomas Beatty left a very lengthy and detailed will, as well as, documentation of two estate sales. This family has received little if none genealogical research.
Some researchers have identified Thomas Beatty as having married Sarah Turner, the daughter of William and Sarah (Ellzey) Turner of Fairfax and Loudoun counties, Virginia. The documentation of this connection is in the estate papers of Thomasin Ellsey of Fairfax County, Virginia [re: Will Books Q1-R1, 1830-36]. In the estate settlement the record states, "Jennings Beckwith and Henry Harrison are the joint owners of the 4/5th of the share of Sarah Beatty, daughter of Sarah Turner, having purchased out the interest of Thomas, Polly Beatty

Frances Morton was the daughter of Joseph Morton (1715-1759) of Richmond County and James City County and Frances Colston Morton, daughter of William Colston of King George County (d. 1721) and Mary Meriwether Colston (d. 1752). Mrs. Hubard was kin and connected to the first families of Virginia: Gooch, Beale, Bathurst, Beckwith, Jennings, Belfield, Meriwether, Mountjoy, etc. (See genealogical chart.)
Mrs. Morton's father was a Burgess from James City County 1756-1758. He was the son of Captain John Morton of Richmond County and Mary Mountjoy Morton. Joseph Morton became a distributing agent for a group of Yorkshire horse breeders. Traveller, an imported stud and race horse, was owned by Morton from 1748-1757. "He was bred by Mr. Crofts at Raby in Yorkshire (who was the fortunate breeder and owner of some of the first horses in England) and was got by his famous horse, Partner, grandsire of King Herod. The dam of Traveller was by Bloody Buttocks (an Arabian) ... Traveller sired horses owned by Thomas Mann Randolph, Robert Skipwith, John Hartwell Cocke, Richard Lee, Littlebury Hardyman, Secretary Thomas Nelson, Lewis Burwell and James Southall."
Following his marriage to Frances Colston c. 1739 Morton continued to live in Richmond County or King George County. In 1742 he owned two lots, #25 and 26, at Leeds Town. Following the death of his mother-in-law, Mary Meriwether2

Aemilia Lanyer (1569 - 1645)Daughter of Baptista Bassano, court musician of Elizabeth I (and later Charles I) of England, Aemilia frequented the fringes of the court of Elizabeth I and became the mistress of Henry Carey, Lord Hunsdon, forty-five years her senior. Pregnant at the age of twenty-three, she married her cousin by marriage, Alphonso Lanyer, also a Queen's musician in October 1592. Lanyer was granted a monopoly for the weighing of hay and straw in London, a monopoly that would provide Aemilia with a precarious income after his death in 1613.

Published in the same year as the King James Bible (1611), Lanyer's Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum (Hail, God, King of the Jews, 1611) is a poem about the Passion of Christ. Dedicated to women and addressed to women, Lanyer makes no apology for publishing a serious work of poetry under her own name. Arguing for women's religious and social equality in the introductory dedicatory poems, Lanyer continues her feminist theme when she reinterprets the biblical creation story as well as the stories of Christ's life and death from a feminist point of view. Indeed, her entire Passion story is viewed from a feminist perspective.

Here is her introduction

. To the Virtuous Reader.
Often have I heard, that it is the property of some women, not only to emulate the virtues and perfections of the rest, but also by all their powers of ill speaking, to eclipse the brightness of their deserved fame: now contrary to this custom, which men I hope unjustly lay to their charge, I have written this small volume, or little book, for the general use of all virtuous Ladies and Gentlewomen of this kingdom; and in commendation of some particular persons of our own sex, such as for the most part, are so well known to myself, and others, that I dare undertake Fame dares not to call any better. And this have I done, to make known to the world, that all women deserve not to be blamed though some forgetting they are women themselves, and in danger to be condemned by the words of their own mouths, fall into so great an error, as to speak unadvisedly against the rest of their sex; which if it be true, I am persuaded they can show their own imperfection in nothing more: and therefore could wish (for their own ease, modesties, and credit) they would refer such points of folly, to be practiced by evil disposed men, who forgetting they were borne of women, nourished of women, and that if it were not by the means of women, they would be quite extinguished out of the world, and a final end of them all, do like Vipers deface the wombs wherein they were bred, only to give way and utterance to their want of discretion and goodness. Such as these, were they that dishonored Christ his Apostles and Prophets, putting them to shameful deaths. Therefore we are not to regard any imputations, that they undeservedly lay upon us, no otherwise than to make use of them to our own benefits, as spurs to virtue, making us fly all occasions that may color their unjust speeches to pass currant. Especially considering that they have tempted even the patience of God himself, who gave power to wise and virtuous women, to bring down their pride and arrogance. As was cruel Cesarus by the discreet counsel of noble Deborah, Judge and Prophetess of Israel: and resolution of Jael wife of Heber the Kenite: wicked Haman, by the divine prayers and prudent proceedings of beautiful Hester: blasphemous Holofernes, by the invincible courage, rare wisdom, and confident carriage of Judeth: & the unjust Judges, by the innocency of chaste Susanna: with infinite others, which for brevity sake I will omit. As also in respect it pleased our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, without the assistance of man, being free from original and all other sins, from the time of his conception, till the hour of his death, to be begotten of a woman, borne of a woman, nourished of a woman, obedient to a woman; and that he healed woman, pardoned women, comforted women: yea, even when he was in his greatest agony and bloody sweat, going to be crucified, and also in the last hour of his death, took care to dispose of a woman: after his resurrection, appeared first to a woman, sent a woman to declare his most glorious resurrection to the rest of his Disciples. Many other examples I could allege of divers faithful and virtuous women, who have in all ages, not only been Confessors, but also endured most cruel martyrdom for their faith in Jesus Christ. All which is sufficient to enforce all good Christians and honorable minded men to speak reverently of our sex, and especially of all virtuous and good women. To the modest sensors of both which, I refer these my imperfect endeavors, knowing that according to their own excellent dispositions, they will rather, cherish, nourish, and increase the least spark of virtue where they find it, by their favorable and best interpretations, than quench it by wrong constructions. To whom I wish all increase of virtue, and desire their best opinions.

Mujeres Barrocas The sudden appearance of Emilia Bassano (Madame Lanier) might seem strange in this series on women musicians, for Emilia was not a musician, and it is above all as a poet that she is present for us today. But when researching the musical life of Venice in the late 16th century by chance one discovers the Bassano family and the fascinating destiny (though still laden with mystery) of Emilia, how can one resist the desire of sharing this stroke of luck? In the wake of Emilia, the beautiful Moor, appear other characters who are more well known, including a certain Shakespeare....

Current News about the Shakespeare Authorship Debate Hughes sided with A.L. Rowse in identifying the Dark Lady as Emilia Bassano Lanier, a lady of some distinction in the Court in the 1590s, of Mediterranean extraction (and hence "olive-skinned"), and intellectually an equal of Oxford/Shakespeare (she published a book of her original poetry under her own name in 1611, the first such book ever published by a woman in England, and a book that--like the Sonnets--had very few surviving copies).

The Ancestors of Randy Wilson - pafn06 48. Moses D. BECKWITH
Show up in New London in 1850 CT census with wife Lydia and children George W., Henry and another boy (too hard to read).
In 1829 Moses owned land partly in East Haddam & partly in Lyme which he sold to Selden Banning. Moses died in South Lyme now Old Lyme in 1854. Lydia died same place in 1873 & left a will. Moses still not identified.

He is in East Haddam in 1830, Morris in 1840, East Lyme in 1850. His wife/widow is living with her parents(?) in 1860 in Old Lyme. It would seem that Moses would be descended from an East Haddam BECKWITH. Unfortunately I fail to find one that might be Moses' family.

Moses D. Beckwith married Lydia Pilgrim in 1827 Haddam, CT.
Beckwith, Moses D.

----- Notes from Mahlon Erickson -------
Regarding Moses D. Beckwith of East Haddam and Lyme who married Lydia Pilgrim:
I have been going through a large stack of Beckwith letters and e-mails. Regarding Stephen of East Haddam, I show him born 1759, died 1828. Wife Elizabeth Drake of Long Island married 1779. I believe this information comes from Beckwith Notes by A.C. & E.S. Beckwith. His line is Stephen-6, Stephen-5, Jonathan-4-3, John-2, Matthew-1.
