  • Notes 
    • (Research):From Charles Elmer Bales, 1931, Lineage of the Bales Family (compiled by Thomas D. Hamm) -- William Beals, born about 1747 in Frederick Co., Virginia, died in Chatham Co., North Carolina, in the summer of 1814. He was married first, 10th Mo.19, 1769 at New Garden to Rachel Green, daughter of James and Mary (Harry) Green. Rachel was born in Chester Co., Pennsylvania, about 1749 and died in Knox Co., Tennessee, in 1799. William and Rachel lived at Center until about 1786, when they became the founders, along with various fellow Quakers, of the Quaker community of East Tennessee. After the death of his first wife, William married in Guilford Co., Sep. 30, 1803, Rachel Johnson, daughter of Tarlton and Sarah (Mills) Johnson.
      She was born in Guilford Co, North Carolina on, 3rd Mo. 6, 1770 and died in Wayne Co., Indiana, 10th Mo. 20, 1837. After his second marriage, William lived in Guilford and Randolph Counties in North Carolina. By 1810 he was living in Chatham Co. Rachel (Green) Beals is probably buried in the Lost Creek Friends Burying Ground in Jefferson Co., Tennessee; William Beals at the Rocky River Friends Burying Ground in Chatham Co., North Carolina; and Rachel (Johnson) Beals in the West River Friends Cemetery in Wayne Co., Indiana
