Beal's in Mississippi County, Arkansas

Journal by wispofmagic

I am looking for information on Jesse Beal born around 1863 and married to Fannie Peney. I have hit a road block and can't find Jesse's or Fannie's parents. They were married in Mississippi County, Arkansas and had 4 sons. John Roy, Julian Robert, Joseph Allen and Jessie James. Fannie died in 1919 and is buried in Louise Chapel Cemetery. Jesse died in 1938 and not sure where he is buried. Julian was first married to Theo McMinn and they had several children. Otto, Jim, Robert, Naomi Jean, Vera, Verlie, Albert, Alfred, Clarence Edward (my father) Orveal and Mamie. All who are dead now. Albert and Clarence moved to Wisconsin after WW2. Clarence married Viola Elnora Harrison daughter of Edward Miles Harrison and Rena Pearl Charlson in Madison and had 7 children (6 of us still living) Otto was married to Reba Cantrell, Jean was married to a Wardell, Vera was married to a Kraft but I believe she was married before that. She was killed in a car accident. Leaving Juanita, Ron and one other daughter in the care of Jean. Robert also died in an accident. Verlie I was told died of small pox in her early teens. I would love to share what information I have on the family and would welcome any information back. Especially who Jesse's and Fannie's parents where.

Rena Pearl Charlson came from Stark County, Illinois and is the daughter of Anna Viola White and Charles Charlson. Her grandmother was Rachel Dixon.

Edward Miles Harrison was born in Chicago, Il. His parents were James Harrison and Frances Burgess. James was born in Norfolk, England and came over to America with his brother Hilery Miles Harrison. They orginally moved to Canada and then to America. Frances was born in Canada from what I understand.

I suggest looking on

I found the marriage bond for Jesse Beal and Fannie. You can look at the record on the left. They were married 7 Apr.1885. If you look closer, he signed his name J. P. Beall, and she signed Fannie E Peney.

When you go in. go to USA, Canada, on this....than
go to the Arkansas marriage. I suggest looking at the other records
for your family.

Best wishes in your search.

I found Fannie. Actually I had the Peney but nothing was coming across with that name. I found the actually document on the site you suggested and I thought it looked more like Perry to me than Peney. When I did a search on Fannie Perry I found her. Her father was Archibald Perry and he first shows up as an engineer in Illinois and then in Missisisippi county and her brother's name is Julian which explains where my grandfater Julian Robert got his name. One of Fannie's sisters married and ended up in New Mexico. I am still looking for Jesse's parents. I am actually taking a road trip down to Mississippi County, Arkansas in two weeks to see if I can find out more. At the same site I found the death certificate for Verlie who died of malaria. Thank you for your help. Wonderful site.

Hi there, my grandfather was Joseph Allen Beall. I met him and some of his children (not the same mother as my dad Emory Beall) They were extremely poor. In ancestry I find Socrates A. Beall as the father of Jesse P Beall. But it doesn't compute to me that they came from a wealthy family and lived so poor. So I am still not sure who Jesse P. Beall's father was. They all seem to have a problem when spelling Beall/Beal/Beale, etc.
Were you able to find out anything while in Arkansas? I still have a half uncle living in Gilmore (William Beall).
Thanks , Nancy
