Because this Beasley family is often conflated with other Beasley family and undocumented material has been added and copied, I made a summary of what we know and what we don't.
Research Notes John Beasley of Darlington County, SC
The family of John Beasley, Darlington County, SC based on evidence available to the Beasley Surname Study. We are not disputing other information but identifying that for which we have evidence.
John Beasley’s wife was named Margaret as evidenced by her being named in John’s will. Other than that, the Beasley Project research does not have evidence for: 1) names “Peggy” or “Smith”, 2) the dates or locations of her birth or marriage to John Beasley, 3) a definitive accounting for all children.
It is clear from land records that not all of John’s children were named in the will. 
Rueben: Possibly the oldest male or at least the oldest living at the time of John’s death. He was named executor (and witnessed will) along with Stephen Thompson, a possible son-in-law. (See below).
Abraham: A witness to the will. Identified as a son in land transactions (Deeded land in 1807 and when Abraham sold part of the same land to his brother John.) 
William: Deeded land in 1808. 
John Jr: Identified as brother of Abraham in land purchase in 1812. 
Daniel: Named in will to receive the land on which he was living after the death of his mother, Margaret.
Charles: Likely son, owning land adjoining Daniel but not specifically identified as son. Two deed sales 1813 and 1817. 
Rachel and Margaret: Likely daughters. Lennell Andrews Jr., author of History of Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church, Lydia, South Carolina, 1789-1989, notes that two early church members, Rev. Stephen Thompson (who had witnessed the elder John’s will) and Ariss Woodham, married sisters Margaret and Rachel Beasley, and states (without documentation) that the sisters were daughters of John and Margaret Beasley. He also notes that Charles Beasley/Beasle witnessed Thompson’s will. 
For the other children listed on the WikiTree profile (Pharaby, Richard, James and Nancy) we have no evidence.
DNA Note. Although I have not been able to fully record the DNA evidence on WikiTree, we have extensive YDNA evidence for a number of lineage trees. In the FTDNA Beasley YDNA Project a major Haplotype is referred to as “Blue Group”. John Beasley of Darlington County also has an exact modal YDNA profile, thus he is almost certainly a direct descendant of one of these, likely a grandson of John Beasley 1685.
John Beasley of Darlington as NOT the son of Solomon 1707, we would look to one of the other sons of John 1685 as father of John of Darlington SC.
There are known sons of John 1685 who could be the father of John of Darlington SC, in particular, William Beasley and John Beasley.
