Family Research Projects

I am seeking any information about John Beatty born about 1796 near Trenton, NJ. Died 1889 in Fayette County, PA. He married Isabelle Hyndman about 1820 in Pennsylvania. I am searching for information about his parents.

Old biographical sketches from the 1800s say that his father was James Beatty, but I have not been able to find any likely candidates for this and I am unable to confirm the name. The family lore says >>there were "three Beatty brothers that came over the mountain from New Jersey to Pennsylvania." The names were James, John, and Samuel. Their father was James born in New Jersey. His father was James born in Ireland arrived in the colonies before the Revolutionary war.<<

We are in the Beatty2000DNA project as lineage 54. The family is well documented from this John Beatty onward. Any information or clues about the prior history/family would be appreciated.
