John Abraham Beckelhymer 1797 Va - 1880 Or
Posted by: Richard Russell (ID *****6774) Date: August 27, 2005 at 13:29:13
  of 29

In 1848, in Clay Co Ind, John A. Beckelhymer, with one son dead, and the other two with their own places, and with only daughters around the house, decided he needed a "man" around the house. He took in a "bound boy", from The Overseer of the Poor for Clay Co, a boy named James Elmore Baits, age 10 (as of 6 Dec 1847). Said James to be bound untill age of 21; and it to work to the advantage of both parties. The surname "Baits", could have also been a corruption spelling of "Bates"?. I have never been able to find out what happened to this James Elmore Baits???????? Any help??? Thanks. Regards, Dick
