Read bio of Williamson including information about Beebe.

This family New York to Ohio to Iowa, then Beebe to Missouri, Texas, Oklahoma with Pruitt.

I's sorry to hear that you are ill today.  I hope you get better quickly.
I believe that Calvin was probably in Lamoni.  That's where his son Edward O. Beebe is buried.  He died when he came home to take care of his father's estate.  Tragic.
Anyway,  I know that they were RLDS, as they joined at the same time that my GGGgrandfather did.  I didn't look at this close enough that last time I looked at it and thought that your Alvaro Beebe, was the same as this.  It is obvious to me now, that it isn't.
I am attaching the rest of the Beebe line to this email that I have. I hope it will be helpful to you.  Do you know who Cornelius Alvero's parents were?  The naming practices seem to indicate that he was of this family somewhere.

WOW Diana. You are way further back than I am. My sisters started our genealogy records and we have been stuck at Isaac since 1972.
By the case I failed to tell you, I have a tracking website for our Beebes and I'll add these names to the record.......and also list Day as a collaterial relative.
Then I can later add places where they lived to the dates to flesh out the files.
You filled in the matching place they lived in Ohio which we didn't know until now.
This is so neat.
Don Kelly, Forest Grove OR
Sue. I believe you are right. They came from Ohio and were in Lee County 1850. Milton was a wagon maker and newly married to Van Ausdel. She was born Ohio as was Milton.
A year later they were in Shelby County and Milton was the elected sheriff there.
Calvin could be Milton's uncle, a brother to Isaac, but it seems they remained LDS, but parted ways in Iowa at some point, though some came back around 1870.
I have files for extended families and I can add these if you wish.
And I would like to know more.

Subject: Re: Beebe family

HI Don:
I took a look at your website and found that I am fairly certain that your Beebe family and the one I am following are related.  They are all showing up in the same counties in Iowa together with the people of my extended family.
The Vandualsal (not related, but I recognize the name from my research) name shows up in Lee County too, so that tells me that they were probably all hanging out in the same areas together as Mormons will do.
I have recently published a book that is might be helpful in understanding the Mormon movements with these particular groups of people.  It actually follows my ancestor James Newberry, but he is in society with so many of the people that you mentioned.  These are the people I am following, and hoping to find descendants of the children listed.

. Esther Newberry b. June 7, 1829 Brownhelm, Lorain County, Ohio, d. March 28, 1891, Coloma, El Dorado County, California  m. Edward O. Beebe son of Calvin Beebe and Submit Elizabeth Rockwell Starr,[1] 29 June 1849 in Keokuk, Lee County, Iowa  b. March 4, 1827, Ohio, d. October 18, 1869 Council Bluffs, Pottawattamie County, Iowa. Edward was in the Mexican War and Esther applied for his pension. Edward had gone home to Iowa to take care of the estate of his father, and died there. Esther and Edward were successful fruit farmers in El Dorado County, near Sutter's Mill at the height of the gold rush. They lived only a short distance from Esther’s sister Electa. Both families were known as agriculturalists. Children: James, b. Iowa; Julian Lamoni, b. Iowa; Mary Elizabeth, b. 1863, Salt Lake City, Utah; Emma, b. 1855, California; Sarah, b. 1856, California; Adelaide L. (Eda), b. 1857, Uniontown, El Dorado, California; Florence Nightingale (Flora), b. 1862 Uniontown, El Dorado, California; Edward, b. 1862-63 California; Philip, b. 1867 Bear Creek, El Dorado, California.  Info provided by Sheri Zingmark.


[1] Calvin Beebe was the right hand man of Alpheus Cutler, leader of the Lamanite (Indian) missionaries, who formed a group named the Cutlerites, to which many of the extended family belonged or supported. Calvin’s sister Luana was married to Orrin Porter Rockwell.  It is unknown how Rockwell was related to Submit Rockwell Starr Beebe.


Calvin Beebe was probably the brother of Isaac Beebe, although I haven't yet proved that. Calvin's father was Isaac but he died in Jackson Co. Mo.  He was married to Olive Soule who died in Ohio.


When the Mormons left Nauvoo and moved to SW Iowa, Calvin Beebe went along but soon dropped away from Brigham Young and followed the Cutlerites.  They were a group of Mormons who believed in the earler teachings of Joseph Smith, and didn't agree with Brigham Young's vision of what Mormonism should be.  Calvin Beebe was also part of the proposed town of Zarahemla in Lee County, Iowa. While he was there, he was excommunicated from the Church but then was re-admitted later.  I have a webiste that you might be interested in viewing. The genealogical table is shown in section I.  I have reproduced it above, but you can see the relationships of different people by viewing the one on the website.


If you are interested in learning more, I have a few copies of my book left.  The book is completely documented and has a bibliography.





In a message dated 7/25/2006 12:39:48 PM Pacific Daylight Time, writes:
Hi Sue. Please check out this Beebe index. The Biography explains Williamson as a Mormon traveling west and settling finally in Shelby County as a priest of the church.........and also Milton Beebe showing up in Shelby county from Lee County, IA and became the first elected sheriff.
Then check out the Beebestates website for Iowa which may mention your Calvin and Edward who haven't yet documented in my line, but as LDS most certainly related. Williamson showed up in western Iowa about 1850 and Beebe 1857.
If your group went to California around 1850, they may have been with the group in which Williamson was in who planned to go to California, but stopped at Council Bluffs.
Please review and get back with new information, or with questions.

Don:  Your family went to Ohio from ??? 
Some of mine went to Ohio in about the mid-thirties, but they went from Vermont.  I am curious about the timing -- unless there was some major historical event pushing people west. 
They were, at one point (abt 1836) in Logan County, Ohio, and one part of the family settled in Sherman Township in Huron County.  Does any of this seem at all familiar to your family's migrations?
Greetings. My Beebe family started west before 1830 first to Ohio then by

1840 in Iowa.  Who knows what names might show up to connect with what we already know, or suspect. Thanks for the offer.

Have a great day all.

Hope this helps someone!

There were Mormons who went to Utah who would not marry more than once, so do not dispare on that issue. My own great grandparents made a pact not to do what their own parents had done.  My great grandmother's father was Henry Grow.  He married my great grandmother's mother AND sister.  So she found it aborrent, like most of us in this day and age do. 
The people who stayed behind in Iowa were generally those who didn't believe in it either.  The ones who had become involved put aside plurality.  That happened with people like Alpheus Cutler, who was married to Calvin Beebe's sister.  She was put aside, and she moved on and married another mormon man.
I can tell that you are not feeling great, so we can discuss this a little later.  I hope you are feeling better soon.
In a message dated 7/31/2006 10:52:54 PM Pacific Daylight Time, writes:

How much research have you done in the rolls of the LDS Church?  There are too many similarities in these names not to have them connected. Not to mention their proximity of residence. Could it be a possibility that Leanah's last name was actually spelled.Vanasdale/vanosdale/Vandausal.  I have seen this name on the rolls of the church in the 1804's in Lee Co. Calvin Beebe was there as well as his wife Submit Rockwell Beebe.
I have transcribed rolls for others, but none for myself.
NAMES: Quote from Biography dated 1889:

Mr. Williamson was again married February 22, 1872, to Leanah,  the widow of Milton M. Beebe, and daughter of William and Polly  (Headrick) Van Ausdell. 

I know that in 1850 most of the really good Mormons had moved on.  So these people may have been affiliated early with the Mormons and stayed behind and were dissidents from Brigham Young.  The Mormons don't like to admit that this happened, but there were thousands of early people who left the Church because of Brigham's heavy handedness. 
Great grandma Mary Elizabeth Williamson Beebe (Different Mary Elizabeth Beebe in your records too) said they believed in  singular marriage. They alone separated them from the Salt Lake City Mormons.
Not feeling well, but did a lot of research today.

I will post this Kathleen and I will not forget Milo if I ever see him again.

Dear Don...
I saw your recent message on the Beebe boards.
I'm seeking info on Milo Beebe, who married Nancy Mortland of Hardin, Ill. and St. Louis, Mo.  in mid 1800's.
I believe Milo was born in NY and moved west, though Ohio. (I did find a Milo Beebe in Ohio, but he was younger than mine, and could have been a nephew, or perhaps a grandson)
Is there any chance that you'd know about this mysterious Beebe of mine?
Thanks... Kathleen


Thank you very much for the Beebe-Bebee-Beebee information.
