123 Years Ago Today

On March 20, 1890, one hundred and twenty-three years ago today, George Benton Beeney (1890-1970), my 2nd great grandfather, was born in Utica, Licking Co., Ohio the son of Samuel L. Beeney (1857-1929) and Eva Flora McLaughlin (1863-1899).

The above record of George’s birth shows his name as just “Beeney.” A corrected record was made on the registry of births, which shows his full name. (A free online index of this record can be found by clicking here.)

George Benton Beeney was the biological father of my paternal great grandmother, Maxine Elizabeth (Davis-Kernan) Smith (1912-1992), who was first married to Delmar Clair Kernan (1908-1979). George and his wife, Gladys M. Cook (1894-1957), separated and later divorced soon after Maxine’s birth. Following this, George eventually returned to Ohio.

  1. My husband, Larry is a direct McLaughlin descendant of Licking Co., Ohio. His ancestor, John McLaughlin md. Elizabeth Shannon 1817 in Licking Co., Ohio and is next door to Thomas McLaughlin of your line in 1830 census Licking Co., Ohio . My John’s son, John b. 1833 in Licking Co., Ohio md. a Diana Stephens-whose mother was a Davis….Diana’ mother died in about 1900 in Licking Co., Ohio about 100 years old. I wondered about your own Davis line when I read your history of Thomas and Margaret Wilson McLaughlin
    Can you tell me your Davis lineage?
