Looking for copy of will of Beasley Prewitt. He died about 1839 in West Liberty, Liberty County, TX, buried in Old French Cemetery. He md 1) Eleanor "Ellen" Humphrey and md. 2) Lucy Sims Rogers, 1808 in Rapides Parish, Louisiana. The will was written in Spanish. We have a translated copy but have no idea where it is recorded. The Liberty Co. courthouse burned in 1874. Can anyone help?? I am helping a friend prove her line to Beasley so that she may join The Daughters of the Republic of Texas. Any documentation that he was the father of Hugh Uriah Prewitt would help as well.

Sorry my mistake I thought I had gotten your mailing address.
I went to the Sam Houston Library in Liberty and copied a file for you. It contains letters from Mary Ann Garner Golding doing research on Beasley, a pedigree chart, another letter from another family member-Jean S., page 105 on Uriah Prewitt, 1831, a copy of the Confederate Pension App., a second pension claim on Prewitt, Power of Attorney for Uriah Prewitt in the matter of Beasley Prewitt, a copy of the land, two copies of Beasley's will one hand written and one typed.
Both wills tell that Beasly Prewitt/Pruitt native of the County of Essex in the stat of VA one of ___North America and on the Trinity River Didstrict of Atascosito in the Dept. of Bejar which appertains to the Soverign State of Cohuila and Texas of the Mexican Confed. This proves his will is filed with the Mexican government as well as Liberty Co.
The Consulado General De Mexico's office is located in Houston, Tx off Fannin Street. They should have his origional will. Due to the fact that the Seal date was July 2nd A. D. 1845
If you would like this paper work I would love for you to have it if you don't already. I made for your research. The cost is nothing. Did it solely for the fun of research and helping others
