I'm Michael and new to this site. Thanks for having me!
I've been researching for YEARS to find the parents of my ancestor listed above. William C Beal was born in 1812, Giles County, Tennessee to parents believed to be Thomas and Annie (McCormick / McCormack) Beal. In 1849(?), the county courthouse burned down, taking precious records of his parent's identities with it. I'm hoping someone here can help with actual data or with building a sufficiently strong circumstantial case that I can proceed.
Thanks in advance and thanks again for having me!
