An inquisition, dated February 17, 1777, now on file in the office of
the Secretary of the Commonwealth, addressed to the Council of Safety, sets forth that an unhappy accident happened on the 16th instant, at a certain Alexander McCalla's in Charlestown township, Chester County, to wit:  the accidental death of CHARLES CLINTON BEATTY* second lieutenant to Capt. Thomas Church's company of the fourth battalion, commanded by Col. Anthony Wayne; and as there is no legal way of proceeding in cases of accidental death, thought it expedient to call upon the chairman of committee to qualify evidence, and call and empannel a jury.  We, therefore, of the jury find that his death was accidental by a shot from Capt. Caleb North's fusee, not apprehending it to be charged."  Signed by Capt. Thomas Church and eleven others.

*Lieut. BEATTY was a son of the Rev. CHARLES BEATTY, (chaplin of Col. Clapham's regiment, 1756); born 10th February 1756; graduate of Princeton, 1775.  He was interred in the burying ground at old Chester.  He was a brother of Major JOHN BEATTY, Dr. READING BEATTY, and Lieut. ERKURIES BEATTY, all of the Pennsylvania Line.
