Looking for any info on grandfather Watt Bethea born around 1860. My father was Floyd Bethea born 1898 in Nokomos Al. He had two brothers James and Dewey Bethea and a sister Owin Bethea.

I have information on some of the Bethea's in Alabama but I don't have my information with me today. I will look at it tomorrow and respond again.

Based upon what you have mentioned I believe that your branch Goodman Bethea and Hugh Bethea are from the Betheas in the Brewton AL area. I believe the Goodman Bethea you mention was the son of Jesse Bethea and Celia Harrison Bethea. I will confirm tomorrow.

In the meantime there is a web page www.betheafamily.org that will contain some information for you. There are many family trees listed there and I truely believeyou will find yours there.

I have information on those Bethea's since that is my father's family. I copied Kinfolks Volume # 3 which had most of the information on his line. I gave him the information that he needed from that book and from the History of Escambia County, Alabama book.

It would be helpful to post the information here, as I also descend from Goodman Bethea through his son Rev. Hugh who migrated with family to Hardee Co. FL in 1867. I have a photo of his headstone. He is buried in New Hope Cemetery in Hardee Co.

There is a large number of Bethea descendants in this area who are interested in any information on the earlier Bethea ancestors. The names Hugh, Goodman, Jesse, John, William, contine to show up in subsequent generations.

Thanks,

Also a descendent of Hugh Bethea, through William Thomas and then his daughter Rosetta. Recently I've come across a 4 generation picture which includes the three named above that I'l be willing to share with those in this direct line.

I was in Tampa just last week but unable to get over to Wauchula. Would you be willing to share the tombstone picture? Son William T and his wife Lucy E are also at New Hope. Do you happen to have pics of those?

Hi,
I would be glad to share the photos! I have them in digital format and can send them to you via e-mail. Or if you want prints, I can order them through wal-mart and you can pick them up at the one nearest to you. (inexpensive & very handy)

I have photos of the gravestones of Hugh and Celian Still Bethea. William T. and wife Lucy only have metal markers, but I have photos of those as well.

Best Regards,
Bev

And yes please! I would love to have a photo of Hugh Bethea. I've never seen a picture of him and had no idea there was one existing!

How exciting!!
