Thomas Edward Beasley, Sr

Deathabt 1870
Aged: 78 years
DNADNA Information
Note: Based on Y-DNA results, this line of Beasley's is closely related to this family in England: Thomas Bealsey. So there must be descendants who migrated to VA or NC. Perhaps the Bennett Beasley's of that line, as there are Bennett Beasley's found in VA.

The connection to father William here may not be correct. We're related app says father is Joseph Beasley 1776-1865. If this is this Joseph Beasley, as also seen on WorldConnect, it is not correct as DNA has shown that this is a separate line.
