  • Notes 
    • Thomas Beals was born in March 1719, in Chester Co., Pennsylvania and later moved with his family to Cane Creek, North Carolina. At the age of 29 he entered the ministry while in New Garden, North Carolina ca 1748. Thomas Beals visited Ohio in 1775 and made several missionary trips among the Indians and few white settlers.
      On one of his first attempts to reach Ohio territory in 1775, Beals, along with a party of friends, were arrested by solders at a fort near Clinch Mountain and accused of aiding the hostile Indians, which were considered allies with the British and therefore a treasonable offence. While waiting to be executed Beals was asked to preach a sermon, and the sermon was so eloquent that he was released and a young soldier, Beverly Milner was converted.
      Twenty-four years after his first visit, Thomas Beals and his family and a company of Friends moved to Quaker Bottoms, from Blue Stone, Virginia. and in the spring of 1801 he and his family and friends settled on Salt Creek, , near the present site of the village of Adelphi, Ohio. He died on August 28th of the same year at the age of 82 years. His widow, Sarah, died July 7, 1813, at the age of 89, at Fairfield, Highland Co., Ohio.
    • (Research):Thomas Beals and Sarah Antrim had declared marriage intentions in Virginia, most likely at Hopewell MM, where their early books were lost in a fire in 1795. They were married in Prince Georges MM in Virginia, when that MM was established and set off from Hopewell MM, Virginia, they were automatically transferred to Fairfax MM 1745-6. Thomas Beals remained in Prince George Co., MD un their four oldest children were granted certificates to Carvers MM, Bladen Co., NC , from there transferred to Cane Creek MM, Orange Co., NC when Cane Creek MM was set up, 7 Oct 1751 and were c Guilford Co., North Carolina) was set up in 1754, the family was transferred to that MM, never having moved from their original settlement.
