  Martha Beal - b. Oct 6, 1821 in Mt Liberty, Knox Co., OH on death record OR Guernsey, OH OR Somerville, OH per daughter Jeanette's death certificate;  d. Sep 22, 1879, Columbus, Franklin Co., OH.  Buried at Green Lawn Cemetery, Columbus, Franklin Co., OH

m2. Joseph Miller  (b. ca 1825-1827, VA;  d. before 1875.  Martha was listed as widow of Joseph in 1875 City Directory.  There were several Joseph Miller's who died in OH between 1870 - 1875.  Without more information... unable to narrow down.  Married first to Sarah Ann Watts and has one daughter Sarah Ann Miller (1854-1930) who marries Ephraim Orebaugh) -- Dec 28, 1854, Franklin Co., OH

  Mary Beal - b. Aug 1822 - 1823 (dc), OH;  d. Apr 21, 1917, Columbus, Franklin Co., OH,  Buried at Green Lawn Cemetery, Columbus, Franklin Co., OH with first husband

m1. James Lawrence Griffin   (b. Oct 8, 1923, NY  son of Worden Griffin and Parmelia Moore;  d. Aug 30, 1867, OH.   Buried at Green Lawn Cemetery, Columbus, Franklin Co., OH with Mary) -- btwn 1840-1860

m2. John Van Yorx  (b. Oct 12, 1819, NY;  d. Dec 5, 1904, OH.  Was married first to an Esther of which he had several children.  Buried at Green Lawn Cemetery, not with Mary) -- Jan 24, 1871, Franklin Co., OH and again on Oct 26, 1873, Franklin Co., OH - Separates from before 1880?
 
Mary Beall and Lawrence Griffin and John Van Yorx
  Mary has not been easy to track down.  It is known that she married James Lawrence Griffin.  However, it is not known when.  There is the possibility that she was married to someone else first, then married James.  James' younger brother Thomas Frazier Griffin marries his wife Elnora Wood in Licking Co., in 1850.  So chances are, that James also married Mary in Licking Co., since this is where her family was living in the 1840 and 1850 Censuses.

Brothers of James, Thomas Frazier Griffin and Joseph Smith Griffin moved to Iowa between the 1850's - 1860's.  There is a possibility that James and Mary may have moved there also.  Joseph Smith Griffin remained in Iowa while Thomas Frazier Griffin eventually moves to Columbus. James Lawrence Griffin starts appearing in Columbus, Franklin Co., OH around 1862.
 
  1850 - Census - Unable to locate Mary and/or James Griffin
  1856 - Iowa Census - German, Keokuk Co., IA.  Iowa Census records have a J S (which could be an L) and Mary Griffin born in OH.  This is the same town and county in Iowa that James' brothers Thomas and Joseph appear in the 1860 US Census.  However, when searching cemetery records, I discovered that Joseph Smith Griffin marries Mary (nee) Barnett Reynolds former wife of James Reynolds.  She died Apr 20, 1957.  Joseph Smith Griffin then marries Lydia.  So on this census record, J S Griffin is Joseph Smith Griffin and Mary is Mary Barnett, not Beall.
 
1860
- Census - Unable to locate Mary and/or James Griffin
 
  1862 - City Directories - Columbus, Franklin Co., OH - James L Griffins appears in City Directory
 
  1867 -- James Lawrence Griffin passes away Aug 30, 1867.  The burial plot that he is buried in at Green Lawn, is Section F, Lot 27.  According to cemetery records, Thomas F Griffin (James' brother) purchased the northern half of the lot.  Mary Beall Van Yorx purchased the southern half.  James appears to be the first burial in this lot.  Mary's parents Jane and Samuel followed soon after in 1869 and 1872.  There are fifteen Beall, Griffin, and Bloor family members buried in this plot.
 
  1870 - Census - Mary is living with her brother Bruce.  Her brother Bruce is indexed as Bell Pruse.  Also, he is recorded with an F for female.  However, in another column, he is recorded as a male citizen of the US.  Also, profession is given as Hackman which would not be a profession a woman had at this time.  So the "F" was an error.

Marriage records for Mary Griffin and John Van Yorx

1873 - 1880
- Mary separates from John Van Yorx.  In 1880, she is living with the Stacy Taylor family without John.  In city directories in the late 1880's and 1890's she is listed as the widow of John.  Actually, he did not die until 1904.
 
  1880 - Census - Mary is living in the household of Stacy Taylor.  Stacy is a well known lawyer and judge in the Columbus area.  His wife Elizabeth's maiden name was Beall.  There is the possibility that Elizabeth is the sister of Mary BUT, then she would have been recorded as the sister-in-law instead of cousin.  The other possibility is that Samuel Beall had a brother in Ohio and Elizabeth is the daughter of that brother. 

Elizabeth's information is ---- Elizabeth Beall - b. Jan 17, 1824, Holmes Co., OH;  d. Feb 19, 1881, Columbus, Franklin Co., OH;  m1. John H Matheny (b. May 9, 1818;  d. Dec 26, 1852) -- Jun 7, 1840, Licking Co., OH;  m2. Stacy Taylor ( b. 1806;  d. 1893 ) -- Nov 12, 1853, Franklin Co., OH.  Elizabeth had children with both Matheny and Taylor.

  1900 - Mary starts to use her first married name of Griffin more than Van Yorx - ca 1900.
 
  1900 - Census - Mary is living with her sister Hester Bloor and nephew George Bloor.

Also of note on this census are the number of children for Mary.  She reports that she had three children that are all deceased by 1900.  It is unknown whether this is correct or not.  There is not enough information.  She may have had children that were adults by the time her husband died in 1867.  OR they may have been children that died as infants.  A broad search looking for children that had a father with the name Griffin and mother Beall did not result in any hits.

  - Elizabeth possibly marries Jacob C Follows / Fellows????  Can find no marriage records to back this up.  Some have Elizabeth linked to an Elizabeth Fellows in the Oakland area of CA.  However, the 1900 and 1910 Census says her father was born in Maryland, which is not the case. 
  - 1941 - Elizabeth Swain dies 1941 in San Francisco???  unlikely

  1893 - Marries Etta -- ca 1893 -- However, I can find no marriage records.  The only time Bruce appears in the census with a wife is in 1900.  On one of his death certificates (one with city and one with county), there is "widow" written in on one but it was crossed out with the word "single" added.  Which could mean he was divorced.  In the 1910 Census he is single.

I though perhaps that there was another Bruce Beall in Columbus, but after cross-checking the city directories with census records, there is only one Bruce. 

Bruce spent most of the 1880's - 1890's working as a railroad engineer.  In the late 1890's and early 1900's he worked in a saloon or perhaps owned a bar.  The address for the saloon and home were the same. I am guessing that his residence was possibly located above the bar.
