2 "Although Abel says in his will that "my six sons" (including Stephen)"have already received from me in lands what I intended to give them",there is no record of Stephen having received any land from hisfather. However he did buy 200 acres from George Kniffen at Waldec,Annapolis Co., (between Bear River and Clementsport) in 1817. Hiswife was from that area. There were ten children in the family, 6sons and four daughters. About 1845 four of the sons and one daughtermigrated to Erin Township, Ontario, north west of Toronto and wereamong the early settlers of that area. Later two sons moved on toPeck, Michigan, north of Detroit. One son, Edward, was a sea captainwho lived near the mouth of Bear River. Another son, Elijah, alsolived in that area and fought in the American Civil War eventuallydying of wounds received in that conflict." (From the book "The BealsFamily of Annapolis County Nova Scotia" by Donald W. Beals).
Contrary to the above, George Fletcher Beals was already living inErin at the time of his marriage in 1840 according to his marriageregistration. Based on his obituary it is reasonable to assume he cameto Ontario as early as 1838, not 1845 as indicated above. Of coursethe various siblings could have migrated at different times.

22 Andrew was Abel's oldest son. No record of his date of birth has beenfound but assuming he was at least 18 when he bought a piece of landin July 1796, he was probably born in 1778. He bought 167 acres fromhis father in 1798 and another 40 acres in 1808. The north end ofthis land bordered on the Annapolis River and, being on the valleyfloor, it was excellent farm land after it was cleared. He no doubtlived there until the land was sold to Christopher Prince about1816.After Andrew died his wife Charlotte lived with their daughter, EmilyBeals (wife of Nehemiah) in Nictaux. Beals, Andrew (I00873)
 
23 Arod purchased 200 acres of land from his father in 1808. This stripof land was on the east side of land owned by his brother Joshua. Aroddied at the relatively young age of 37. He probably died suddenly asthere was no will. His wife, Catherine, and two brothers, Joshua andAbel, were administrators of his estate and disposed of his personalproperty and probably some land to pay his debts. Surprisingly it wasnot until 1861, the year she died, that action was taken to giveCatherine legal title to one third of her husbands property as her"dowry" right. One lot was where she lived on the south side of SouthWilliamston road and the other up on Beals Mountain. Arod's deathleft his wife with 8 children, three sons and five daughters. Theoldest child was 13 and the youngest one year old less five days. Beals, Arod (I00875)
