Beam and Kennedy: Ligonier Valley to Jefferson Hills PA

I cannot find a direct relation at this time but my 3rd GGF John T Kennedy (1812-1897) was in business (Milling) with Thomas Lemon Beam of Waterford, Ligonier twp, Westmoreland Co PA from about 1836-1850. They were both sued by W. Mechling Lobingier of Mt Pleasant Westmoreland Co in 1845. JTK left Ligonier in 1850 but upon his wife, Margaret Mickey, death in 1879 he removed to Jeferson Twp, Allegheny Co PA . Jefferson Twp had a large Beam family that is buried in Jefferson ME Church Graveyard and who lived very close to my GGGGF. I don't think this is a coincidence. Can anyone help me out? Has anyone extensively researched the Beam family of SWPA?

I am familiar with the Jefferson Methodist Church Cemetary. My 4th gr grandfather Abraham Beam is buried there, as well as many of his descendants. I would be willing to work with you about your Beam's of southwestern Pa. Please contact me at klangkamp@hotmail.com. Kathy
