A very special Thank you to Janet McCormick who has been so generous with the transcribing and editing of this entire 1877 History of St Joseph Co., MI... below are the details of her ancestral ties to St Joseph Co., MI
My great-great-grandfather Edmund BEAM removed to Flowerfield, St. Joseph Co. from Wyandot Co. Ohio by 1844. He was preceded there by his brother Jacob BEAM, who purchased land in Flowerfield in 1837, and several other brothers and sisters came to St. Joseph Co. as well. Edmund married Elizabeth FELLOWS in neighboring Kalamazoo Co. in 1844. He was a miller and a farmer. There are several BEAM headstones in the Flowerfield cemetery, including Edmund's father, John BEAM, who died in 1853.
In addition, my great-great-grandfather John E. BRIGGS and his wife Ann HAIRE came from Lincolnshire, England to St. Joseph Co. in the 1850's. John E. BRIGGS died during the Civil War, and his widow Ann married Milo INGRAHAM, a grain-cradle manufacturer in Flowerfield. They are also buried in Flowerfield.
Other names associated with these families in St. Joseph County are: WHEELER, DUNCAN, HARRIS, YOUNG, GORDON, BASSETT, TINKER, PIXLEY, BATSON, KEPLER
