In 1860 census I found a 16 yr old Samuel Beckley living with a family of Tewksbury's in Scippo Twp, Meigs County, just south of Albany, Ohio in Athens County. My great grandfather was a Samuel Beckley and I find him with his father and mother, Walter and Hannah Beckley in the next township in the same census. Out of 4 Samuel Beckleys in 1860 Ohio census, 2 are 16 yr old boys living that close? I wondered and assumed that they were one in the same. Hannah, my Samuel's mother is buried at Cross Roads Cemetery south of Albany at the intersection of Ohio SR 681 and Setty Rd, just north of border with Scippio Township. What I discovered there was many Tewksbury's buried, also. Does anyone have any details about a tie of friendship or family between Beckleys aand Tewksburys in Athens/Meigs Counties in 1860?
