I'm searching for my gggrandfather, John Beaumont. He was born abt. 1812 in Yorkshire England. Abt. 1818/20 he and his family came to America. Eventually the family settled in Ohio. John married and had a family in Ohio. The strange part is that he doesn't appear in the 1840/50/60 census records for Columbiana County, Ohio. It has been suggested that perhaps he was in West Feliciana Parish - per a sister's obituary. Does anybody know if a John Magill was in this county? He died in August 1860. It has also been suggested that perhaps whoever wrote the obit confused John with his brother Thomas who was in West Feliciana Parish for a bit.
Thanks for any help with this.
