One of at least five children born to John Jacob Sr and Mary Jane (Clayton) Beals of England and later Chester Co PA, John Jr married Sarah C Bowater on 14 Aug 1711 in Chester Co PA.

Children with Sarah:

7) Hannah Beals (b. 1729), m: Azariah Pugh.

8) Prudence Beals (1730-1815), m: Richard Williams.

John Jr is my 6th paternal Gr-Grandfather through his daughter Phebe (Beals) Sumner (1720-1805).

May 2014, a Find A Grave volunteer reported a problem with John's tombstone photo request: "I searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave. There are many illegible and broken stones as well as unmarked graves. This

name does not appear on a headstone transcription that was completed in 2000."

John and his family, back to grandparents, are listed in Quaker records. His tombstone must be considered as one of those "destroyed". Many thanks to the above volunteer for their effort and kindness.
