WILLIAM HENDERSON BEASLEY, Fulton County, was born September, 1829, in Williamson County, Tenn., where he lived until he was fourteen years of age. His mother died when he was but seven years old, and his father when he was eleven, leaving him without a home. He was the third of six children born to Zachariah and Nancy (Adams) Beasley. He lived with his grandparents until he was fourteen years old, when he went to Davidson County, Tenn., where he lived one year; thence to Williamson County; thence to Marshall County, Miss., one year; thence back to Williamson County, finally locating, in 1868, in Fulton County, Ky., where he now lives, one-half mile west of Fulton, and where he owns 260 acres of land in good condition, and well improved. He started in life without a dollar, and by industry has established a fine home. Mr. Beasley was married to Melvina C. Wade of Williamson County, Tenn.; she is the daughter of Maston and Mary H. (Smith) Wade. To Mr. and Mrs. Beasley seven children were born: E. H., Eudora (deceased), Saphrona, now Pewitt, John M. (deceased), Louanna F., G. Hardee and J. Girada. Mr. Beasley, wife and two daughters are members of the Christian Church; his grandparents were natives of North Carolina, his parents natives of Tennessee; his wife’s parents were natives of Tennessee.
