Regina, Are you referring to Ephraim Winfree Beasley, son of Robert Easley Beasley and Nancy Winfree?

If so, my research shows that Ephraim married Susannah Cockrill b. Sept. 2, 1790. I do not have the names of their children, but you should be able to find them relatively easily. Susannah Cockrill's parents were prominent in the establishment of the frontier colony on the Cumberland River established in 1779-1780. Susannah's mother was Ann Robertson. Ann married (1) Nehemiah Johnston and (2) John Cockrill. Ann Robertson's brother was General James Robertson (the founder of Nashboro, NC, now Nashville, TN). Ann's second husband John Cockrill served in the Revolutionary War and his direct descendants qualify for membership in the DAR if that is of interest to you.

The Beasleys also qualify for membership in the DAR, but I have not looked for them in the Patriot Index. John Beasley provided supplies and provisions to the Revolutionary War solders in VA.

Ephraim Beasley's parents, Robert and Ann Winfree Beasley were my gggg grandparents. Hope this is of some help to you.
