Colaborador: huskerken Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year ago

Life Sketch of Mary Jane and John H. Beatty and their Children Written by Marguerite Beatty (Daughter) John H. Beatty is the son of Abram H. Beatty and Elizabeth Hand Irwin (Beatty). He married Mary Jane who gave him eight children. Her first child was Marguerite Beatty, born September 13, 1876, at Goshen, Ohio. She gave birth to Fred Williams Beatty, June 23, 1878. In 1880 the family moved to Abingdon, Illinois and a second son was born January 4, 1881, named Charles Larkin. A second daughter, Elizabeth Jane was born February 23, 1883 in Abingdon, Illinois and Myra Custer was born November 22, 1884. In the spring of 1886, John H. and Mary Jane Beatty and their five children moved to his uncle Nelson Williams farm five miles out of Gibbon, Nebraska. Elizabeth Jane died here, October 22, 1887. On November 11,1887 Myra Custer died at age 3. In 1895 the family moved to Robinson, Kansas. Here Charles Larkin finished his schooling. His older brother, Fred, had gone into Montana where he worked on a sheep ranch, so Charles joined Fred in Helena, Montana where on June 29, 1915 he married Mati Benfer. The climate did not agree with Matti and she and Charley returned to Kansas when she died at Highland, Kansas, May 3, 1918. Charley continued to farm at Highland until his father died at Robinson, Kansas, April 5, 1920. His mother died at Highland, January 2, 1924. Charley sold his 5 acre home in Highland and went to Montana where he married Mary Graham, the mother of 2 sons, Ed Graham and Jack Graham. John Harvey Beatty (ref: news article titled "AFTER SIXTY-FIVE YEARS") The Beattys and the Hughes reached Northeast Kansas by diverse routes, the former as refugees from a Nebraska drought, the latter from as immigrants from Ireland. John H. Beatty was one of the farmers around Goshen, Ohio, who joined the tide that was running strong to the West and he and his family landed at Gibbon, Nebraska, with more faith than money. It turned out that his faith was misplaced. Drought spared their land, and retreat seemed the better part of valor. They heard that Northeast Kansas offered more promise, so in 1896 the Beattys found themselves farming in the Robinson community. Their eldest daughter, Marguerite, had just graduated as salutatorian of her class in the Abington, Ill. High School, so she was well qualified to accept a position as teacher in the Robinson School. John Hughes brought his family all the way from Ireland, and some years before the arrival of the Beattys, had homesteaded land between Robinson and Everest, where Charles was born in 1878. The elder Hughes, with an A. B. Degree from Trinity College, Dublin, taught school during the winters for $25 a month. He died when Charles was two years old. Charles twin brother, Harley, lived only three months. Marguerite Beatty and Charles Hughes, who were the same age, became good friends and on September 21, 1898, they were married in the Hiawatha Presbyterian Church. Marguerite continued teaching in the Robinson school, and Charles, who had worked for a time as typesetter and Advertising Manager for the "News Press" bought a half interest in a meat market there.
