  12 i.   William Edward Meador, born 1793 in Fairfield Co., SC; died October 1836 in Walton Co., GA; married Sarah Naomi Beam Abt. 1812 in Fairfield Co., SC.

      26. Jesse Beam143,144, born Abt. 1760; died 13 November 1817 in Fairfield Co., SC or Walton Co., GA145. He was the son of 52. Albert Beam, Sr. and 53. Sarah Halsell. He married 27. Sarah Coleman Abt. 1788 in maybe Fairfield Co., SC.

Notes for Jesse Beam:
From Bill Lay: Information on Jesse and Sarah Beam taken from Fairfield Co. SC probate records, will book #8, p. 15, Apt #10 file #62, and Apt #10 file59. For Jesse -- Fairfield Co. Estate Papers, Apt 10, No 19 fr: 124-136.

Also, on GenForum rootsweb pages: Posted by Jim Calvert <>, 23 Aug 2000

"Jesse Beam, according to other researchers, died in Walton County on November 13, 1817. I would like to locate his grave and any other record of him or his family in the county. His wife, Sarah, may be buried in the county as well. However, it is believed that Sarah moved from Walton County to Smith County, TX with her daughter Sarah Beam Meador. If this is true, Sarah would have moved with her grandchildren, John, Richard or Elijah Meador. Sarah may have been a Coleman, though this should be written in pencil. No marriage record can be found. The Beam family moved to Walton County from Fairfield County, SC. during the Cherokee land lottery."

  Notes for Sarah Coleman:
See Jim Calvert, op. cit., for the name Coleman, which he notes is possibly right, but unproved.

From Bill Lay: Will of Sarah Beam proved 2nd Feb 1820. In Will Book #8, Page# 15, Apt #10 File #62: Gives son Solomon "all Right and title to Dower in the Real or Landed Estate of Jesse Beam." Solomon is to be guardian of two youngest children, Albert and Jesse until they reach majority. Money from the personal property is to be divided among Albert and Jesse after debts are paid. Solomon is to take care of William S. who is an "ediot and cannot take care of himself."

Except for Sarah, children's birth dates were estimated from information contained in the probate papers of Jesse Beam. Sarah's children as I show them in the notes are from Bill Lay.

Of Sarah Coleman, Doris Peirce, <>, op. cit., writes in July, 2003 in answer to a query about Indian blood, "I've always been told that we had Cherokee & Creek Indian from the Meador family. My connection is through my great grandmother, Louise Meador. Her grandmother, Sarah Naomi Beam, was said to be nearly 6 ft tall, and had many features of the eastern Indian. My grandfather resembled her very much and looked like the Indian nickel (facial features). If this is true, the connection would absolutely have to be made in the Carolinas. Sarah N. Beam's mother was Sarah Coleman. I have heard several reports of finding Cherokee connection in the Coleman family. That may be the place to look. Doris"
Children of Jesse Beam and Sarah Coleman are:
  i.   Dorothy Ruth Beam146, born Abt. 1790.
  ii.   Solomon Beam146, born Abt. 1792.
  iii.   Elizabeth Beam146, born Abt. 1794; married ? Meador; born Abt. 1792.
