Beightol Family Genealogy

John Beightol and Thomas Beightol

This is the home page for descendents of John Beightol born about 1800 in Pennsylvania and Thomas Beightol born August 6, 1810 in Pennsylvania. We assume, but do not know for certain, that John and Thomas were brothers. John moved to Iowa while Thomas remained in Pennsylvania. A great deal of the information in the associated genealogy is the work product of Helen Beightol Cheeley. She has recorded her work in a book that is 127 pages. I have entered much of her work in this genealogy but there is a lot that has not been entered. So if there is further inforation particularly on younger generations you can email me. Additional information was provided by Frederick Smith and Joseph Rafferty among others.
