BEATTY, BURT, SCOFIELD posted by Jane Peppler on Monday, June 29, 1998

Adin BURT was born August 22, 1842 in Cardington, Morrow County, in the home of John Beatty, who later became General John BEATTY of the Civil War and in whose regiment Adin fought. Adin's parents were Joseph BURT (born PA) and Emily BURT (born OH), born around 1820. Other children: Helen BURT (1843), Marvin BURT (1845), Ira BURT (1850). Emily became very ill and went back to her parents' house in Cardington and died Oct 12 1852. Adin made a second marriage to Denzer or Dency SCOFIELD in 1854 and had Lyman BURT, Luralla BURT, and Theodosia BURT. I believe Joseph was related to Cardington silversmith Ebenezer BURT. Joseph was a farmer but also had a contract to build a railroad near Bellefontaine. Adin was a travelling fur trader after the Civil War. I'm seeking to extend the pedigree of Joseph and Emily. This family is giving me fits - connect if you can. Jane Peppler, 5301 Cedronella Drive, Chapel Hill NC 27514.
