I am not directly related to Elizabeth, but thought this would be of interest to anyone researching the family.

I found this in a publication The Hinkle Creek Friends
Ethel [Clark] Horney and George W. Moore, date 1966:

Page 137

Nathan C. Beals, b. 09/03/1789 near the Lost Creel Friends Meeting at New Market, Greene Co., (Jefferson now) Tennessee, d. 9/5/1867 in Hamilton County, Indiana m. Elizabeth Chew, b. 7/29/1802 d. 1/26/1881 at Converse, Miami Co., Indiana and buried at Albright Cemetery , Kokomo, Indiana. He accompanied his parents, grandparents and uncle Daniel to Quaker Bottom in 1800 to Richmond Dale Londonderry, Ross Co., Ohio. In 1802 he moved to the Fairfield Friends Meeting area at Leesburgh, Highland Co., OH. In 1810 he met a Miss Hussy and their live soon ripened into an engagement. They were to be married after he finished building a mill 40 miles away. After being absent for several weeks the young ladies brother-in-law came to ask Nathan to marry the girl before the appointed time since she had left her father and step-motherís home and was living with her sisters and their husbands. However, Nathan discovered she was insane and was later sent for a cure which took 7 years after which she married. He never married until age 31 and they had a nice family of 10 children in the next 20 years. Because of a misunderstanding about Nathan attempting to marry outside the discipline of the Society of Friends he was disowned in 1811 [sic]. When he applied for membership at the Hinkle Creek Meeting his name had never been rightfully cleared and he was refused, however many of his descendants belonged to the Friends. He said he had committed no offense and would never acknowledge that he was justly disowned [sic]. He became a good Methodist in Westfield for the remainder of his life. Their children (the first 6 were born in Ohio, the last 4 in Indiana) were:

Daniel, b. 6-JAN-1822 in Clinton, OH
Andrew, b. 1825 in OH
John, b. 1822, in OH
Sarah, b. 1828, in OH
Amy, b. 1831 in OH
Nathan, b 1832 or 1833 (cannot clearly read the year)
Thomas J., b. 1836
Elizabeth, b. 1838
Seth, b. 1840
