William Able Beatty

 

 

Born: 10 Jun 1761, Lincoln/Catawba County, NC
Died:  25 Aug 1818, Lincoln/Catawba County, NC

 

William Able Beatty was the son of Thomas Beaty and Mary Margaret Abernathy.  William Able was born 10 Jun 1761 in Tryon/Lincoln/Catawba County, NC.  In his time, the surname "Beatty" was frequently spelled "Beaty".

William's father Thomas Beatty died Jul 1787 in Tryon/Lincoln County, NC, at the age of 56.  When the 1790 Census was taken for Lincoln County, Marget Beaty (Margaret Beatty) was listed as the head of the family.  From the numbers and statistical information, it appears that William, age 29 and unmarried, was still living with his mother, young brothers John and Thomas and sister Margaret.  This listing shows that there were 9 "White females" living in the home.  If mother Margaret and daughter Margaret were two of these, there is no indication of who the other 7 females could have been
 

There were two other William Beattys living nearby - one of which was not married.  The second home with William Beatty as the head of the family only had two people living in the home and one of those was  female - and since "our" William Beatty didn't marry until 1791 it seems unlikely that this was him.

 
If this is indeed the 1790 Census for this family, there is also a listing for "All Slaves" and it would appear that Margaret (and deceased husband Thomas) had 9 slaves.

The 1810 Census shows William Able Beatty, as well as his brothers John and Thomas, living in Lincoln/Catawba County, NC, and also living "next door" to each other.  Some genealogist list John Beatty as having died 07 May 1787 - which means he would not have been on the 1790 Census or the 1810 Census, so I tend to believe that brother John died at a later date.  This Census shows that both John and Thomas Beatty owned slaves - but William Able Beatty did not.  Since William was the older brother and had himself established before his brothers, it would appear that not having slaves was a "choice" that he and Isabella had made.
