..+Daniel Beith aka: Donald Beith b: Abt. 1835 in Scotland d: Abt. 29 Nov 1889 m: Bef. 1867
....2 James Beith b: Abt. 1867 in Ontario

....2 Charles Beith b: Abt. 1872 in Ontario

I know there were a lot of Scotch/Irish from Canada that moved to the Blackbird, Delaware area for the peach and fruit industry in the late 1800s. So, I assume that is where the Beath/Beith family came from. I was associated with the archaeological work on a state road built there recently, and I did the historical framework for the area. Blackbird is a town of about 20 houses (at most) on Blackbird Creek at the southern end of Newcastle County, De.

Thank you, Patrick. It's always good to find out a little bit more of the areas to which the families spread.
Daniel Beith originated in Scotland c1835, was documented in Lambton County, Ontario from before 1861 to after 1881 when he, Barbara and family apparently went to Delaware.
He was listed as a farmer while in Ontario and at the time a number of farms in the area were fruit farms so it seems quite plausible that he might have moved there for that reason. Maybe some day I'll find out for sure.

I am looking for informatiuon regarding a James Beith who was 19 years of age in 1861. He served with the 9th NY Infantry, the 52 NY National Guard and the 48th NY Infantry during the Civil War. He was a POW in 1861 and 62. Of the remaining portions of the burned 1890 census, he is noted as living in Washington DC.

I am researching James Beith and 72 other men and boys captured in October 1861 in NC. Any information, particularly contact with any descendants, would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Sorry, Lee,
I'm afraid I cannot help you with this. I have very little information on the Beith family. The only James Beith I have would have been born about 1867 and is a nephew of my ggrandmother. His father Daniel was born in Scotland and it appears they moved to the US after 1881. Perhaps to be with other relatives.
