This little book formed the basis for lineage 002 of The Beaty Project 2000. It may be incorrect in the assumptions that all the first generation Beaty men are brothers. There were two David Beatys that are considered sons of John Beaty and Margaret Montgomery. Other researchers assert that the David Beaty (c1787 - c1850) who married Sarah Sallie Stephens and who remained in TN was the son of John and Margaret. Mrs. Hilton, however maintains that the David Beaty, (February 05, 1789 - c1874), who married Jean (Jane) Crockett, was the son of John and Margaret. In any case, the account of the other children contained in this book has been documented by other sources.
