THE BEERS FAMILY OF SULLIVAN COUNTY, NEW YORK

Anthony Beers m. Elizabeth
Ephraim Beers m. Mary Gardner
Ephraim Beers m. Susanna Meeker
Daniel Beers m. Abigail Dikeman
Silas Beers m. Deborah Osborn
Nancy Beers b. 1815 m. James W. Sacket

From Gary Thomas of Washington DC, I learned that Nancy was the daughter of Silas Beers and Debby Ann Osborn, taken from the Beers genealogy published in the 1970s by Mary Louise Regan. Nancy's death certificate confirms this. Baptismal entry in the records of the Church of Christ, Salem, Westchester Co., NY, published in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Records 1901: "Debby and Hannah, twin daughters of John Osborn, July 19, 1778." The wife of John Osborn was Eunice Nichols. In the same records, is the death entry of Silas' father, Daniel Beers.


From Ancestry.com, I located the web site of Joe Travis, called Joe's Genes. He has anonther site at The Other Joe's Genes. His work is from The Beers Genealogy, Volume Three, The Descendants of Anthony Beers of Fairfield, Connecticut, through his son Ephraim by Mary Louise Regan, Publishe by, Regan Genealogical Publishing Co., Palatine, Ill., 1978.
