David Beam is my brick wall.  I can not find his death certificate, but I have located his grave in the Mansfield Baptist Church Cemetery.  The pastor there said they didn't keep good records back then and there is little information. In 1880 David Beam appears in the Middle Smithfield Census living with his housekeeper Sarah Van Why.

An interesting fact is that a Jacob Beam used his house to host Baptist ministers before he moved to Canada.  Jacob Beam emigrated to Canada because he was an English supporter during the American Revolution.  He took four daughters and two sons with him.  What happed to the remaining children?  Is David a descendant from Jacob Beam?

I occasionally email Gary Beam, who is a descendant of William Beam.  William Beam was in Warren County in the 1830's.  Is William related to David and how.

There are records of a David Crossley Beam born in 1811, is this the David Beam above?
