DALBEATTIE, SCOTLAND... was in the news recently as the lst officer on the Titanic (who shot himself and others in the movie) was from Dalbeattie.  The residents of Dalbeattie are upset because in the real situation he did  not shoot anyone...including himself. Hollywood admitted their historical gaff in order to add "drama"...and donated 8000 �s to a scholarship fund in Dalbeattie. On the news program, it looked like a beautiful small town on the water.

One interesting legend connected with the Dalbeattie or "Dale/Field of Beattie" is the during the border reiver period, a group of Beatties had stolen some cattle and were driving them home when suddenly they were surprised and overtaken by the owners who killed all the Beatties and left them in the "field". (See article at end that includes Dalbeattie) (Ray Beaty, April 21, 1998)

BEATTIE, Kansas Named for Armstrong Beattie (L4, son of James and Esther Fulton Beattie) who was mayor of St. Joseph, MO at the time the town was founded (1870s). (Joann Tortarolo, Lineage 4, April 15, 1998)

BEATTY, Ohio, south of Springfield, Clark Co, Ohio. Is this named for someone in lineage 186?
(Opal Beaty Maple, Lineage 3, April 19, 1998)

BEATTY, Ohio = Platted in 1834. It is the present day town of Milan Ohio, in Erie County, Ohio. It was platted by Ebenezer Merry, who bought the land from John Beatty (1774-1844) of Erie County, Ohio, Lineage 24. Early settlers to the town didn't like the name, thought it wasn't growing fast enough, and so adopted the name Milan after the town in Italy. Thomas Edison was born in Milan, Ohio.
(John Beatty, Lineage 24, June 29, 1998)

BEATTY'S CORNERS, Indiana. This was a town platted in LaPorte County, Indiana by John Beatty (1813-1885), son of Dempster Beatty. (Lineage 24) It was settled only briefly, had a small hotel and livery stable at one time, but has now completely vanished.
(John Beatty, Lineage 24, June 29, 1998)

BEATTY, NEVADA, founded in 1904, is located in southern Nye County, about 12 miles east of Nevada's diagonal border with California. "Old Man" Beatty (MONTILLUS [MONTILLIAN)] MURRAY BEATTY), for whom Beatty is named, was a native of Iowa; he enlisted in the Union Army at Lyons, Iowa, on 6 May 1861, and served in Company I, Second Iowa Infantry Regiment. He was discharged because of disability and came west after the Civil War. Beatty married a full blooded Paiute woman and they had at least three children, Maud, Frank and Monte. He was Beatty's first postmaster when the post office opened 19 January 1905, although he could neither read nor write, except for his name. He dabbled in mining until his death in December 1908. Beatty's present status is a tourism and mining center. From "Beatty:Frontier Oasis" - Robert D. McCracken. Researched by Edna Britton, Lineage 3, April 1998. (Edna Britton, April 1998) Who are Montillus' ancestors?

BEATTYSTOWN, NEW JERSEY (listed as Beatystown,Warren,NJ in 1859 U.S.P.O. directory) (NJ On Highway 57, ~40 miles N of Trenton)

BEATTYSTOWN, is located on the Musconetcong River and is on the extreme border of Mansfield Township, in its southeast corner. It is the oldest settlement in Mansfield Township, and was a thriving village in 1800. It was more of a business center than Hackettstown was up until about 1825. At that time it was the chief market of that vicinity for grain
and all kinds of produce. It was first called Beatty's Mills, in honor of the man who built the first mill there, before the Revolutionary War. Its location was on the site of the present mill, now owned by J. B. Fisher (in 1881). The Birds were among the earliest settlers. Elisha and Edward wanted the name of the village changed to Birdsburg, but other settlers did oppose the idea. There were more houses in the place in 1820 than there were in 1881. Fisher's grist-mill is a large building constructed of stone. Two mills have been burned on the site since the place was first settled. The first hotel was built so long ago that its date cannot be learned, but it is known that a man named Stewart Martin kept a tavern there during the Revolution. The old turnpike road running through Beattystown was built in 1812, and this party of militia started out on their journey over that road.One of the first schools in the place stood where Thomas Shields' corn house now is (1881), in the lower part of the town. Lewis Golden taught a subscription school there as far back as 1810.

Most of the above info was taken from History of Sussex and Warren Counties, New Jersey compiled by James P. Snell, printed in Philadelphia, PA by Everts and Peck 1881.

My note: Today, there are few, if any businesses, actually in Beattystown. There are mostly older homes there and the main street of town is Rt. 57 which runs right through the town. The only other street that I can think of offhand is Kings Highway (not sure how it got its name). I will try and get out there this year and update this with a current view of the town.

Beattyville, KY information is at the following URL:  "Beattyville, the seat of Lee county, is on the forks of the Kentucky River. The site was originally known as Taylors Landing (the source of the name is not known). In 1850 it was renamed Beatty for Samuel Beatty (Lineage 293), an early settler and landowner, and in 1872 was incorporated as Beattyville. The county seat was moved to Beattyville in 1872 from nearby Proctor. The population in 1990 was 1,131." (Curt Beatty, Lineage 112/176 April 14, 1998) - ~50 miles SE of Lexingon

BEATTY JUNCTION  Regarding geographical Beatty namesakes, there is little town just west of the Latrobe, PA, airport called Beatty. On an old railroad map from 1870 it is called Beatty's Junction. (Tom Beatty, April 14, 1998)

Beatty Station and Beatty Junction are the same place. When the Main Line of the Pennsylvania Rail Road was exrended west of the Allegheny Mountains, it runs through Latrobe and Greensburgh, Pa. Half way between Latrobe and Greensburgh, it ran through the family farm of Benjamin Beatty, Lineage 103. The farm was then owned by Benjamins sons, Hamilton and John.

BEATTY Creek, located approximately 10 miles west of Olympia, Thurston Co. WA. The Creek is located in the Capitol State Forest area of the Black Hills.

BEATTIE'S Ford, LINCOLN, N.C. (P.O. in 1859). Originally a Catawba River crossing between today's Lincoln Co and Mecklenberg Co, named after John Beaty, brother of the Francis Beaty who came down from Virginia. I read somewhere that John Beaty may have been the first white person to cross the Catawba River (just west of present Charlotte, NC). There is a Beattie's(sp?) Ford Rd that still goes out from Charlotte. Beattie's Ford was near the old Hopewell Presbyterian Church where Beattie's Ford Road now ends at the edge of a modern lake. Worth Ray in "The Lost Tribes of N.C." states that "But if we read the old records intelligently, there was not only a Beattie's Ford - meaning a place to cross the river with teams or on horseback - but a small town of the name, but was across the river in what is now Lincoln County, but built around the location of the "ford" mentioned." It was at least large enough in 1859 to warrant a post office. Albert S. Newton - April 14, 1998) Was also known by some as Beattie's Crossing and Beattie's Ferry.

BEATTY'S Icebox (Borrego State Park, California)
Beattys Icebox [Borrego State Park]. When the trail to Highway 99 was built through the desert in 1929 there was a base camp here, and a cool cave served as a natural icebox. A A. "Doc" Beaty was an early homesteader and promoter of the road. The cave was washed away but the name remains for the canyon. (Parker, p. 33.) Parker.

The Confederates put up stiff resistance for a half hour, but overwhelming numbers forced them to retire from the field in haste, leaving artillery and equipage behind. This was a setback in the 1862 Confederate offensive that extended from the tidewater in the east to the plains of the Indian Territory of the west. Result: Union victory"

J. Herries Beattie, M.B.E. "The Beatties in Galloway," p. 21 in John Alexander Bell's, THE BEATTIE-BELL FAMILY HISTORY. Waimate: J. Bell, 1973.

"Long ago the name was spelt in a queer variety of ways. The Beatties in Galloway do not seem to have owned any ancestral land or estates, although the town of Dalbeattie seems to be associated with their name. For centuries before the town was started about 1780 three farms known as Dalbettie's Waterside, Little Dalbettie and Meikle Dalbeattie stood on the site. In a charter of 1488 A.D. the name is spelt Dalbaty. In 1620 the name is given two forms in Dalbetie and Dalbety. In the valuation roll of the Stewartry (Galloway) in 1642 we get a uniform spelling of Dalbeatie. As late as 1877, a valuer absently rendered it as Dalbatty.

The Beatties long had the reputation of being a lawless lot oft at loggerheads with the law. S. R. Crockett in his gripping story "The Raiders" describes the raiders as 'Broken men from the Border sept clans--wild Eliots, bystart Beatties from the Debatable Land, or outlaw Scotts". Of some of these turbulent men it was said " a word and a blow"......

How the name of Dalbeattie came to be given is not known. Some researchers say it is the name of a plant or birch trees, others that it means grazing ground for stock, but as a boy in Southland I heard a heroic narrative told by an aged native of Galloway. Centuries earlier the cattlethieves were driving a mob westward and nearing the rock cliff of Craignair thought they were beyond ursuit, and relaxed vigilance.  They were surprised from two sides at once and killed without mercy.  The victors made a long trench and tossed the slain into it and covered them up. A survivor said they were mostly Beatties hence the name Dal-Beattie (field of Beatties)."
