9. Letter: Letter written by Miss Clara Laird (deceased daughter of Christina (Beeker) and William Laird. Letter given to Audry M, Sanson by Anna (Laird) McMullen, 214 First Avenue S.W., Lagro, Florida. Audry descends from Anna Beeker<John & Christina Beeker. John and Christena Beeker left North Carolina in the year 1805, landing in Washington Co. Grandmother Beeker had three sisters, two brothers father and mother. They all came north together. There were five families together traveling in wagons. Some on horse-back. Several of Grandfather's people (sister) came at the same time They were near Martinsburg, that was their nearest town. The oldest child died and was buried there. She was born in North Carolina. The rest of the family with the exception of William and Christena were all born in Washington Co. They then decided to come further north in April in the year 1828. They first went to the Grand Prairie. They began getting the timbers ready to build the log cabin. Then Grandmother went out where grandfather was chopping and she told him she could not live there, it made her home-sick. So, he ask her how she would like that place down on Pretty Prairie as it was for sale stock and all. So she thought it would be alright. But grandfather heard they were going to run it pretty high, so he knew of a man living at Logansport who was guardian for some children and had money to loan, so grandfather put the saddle and saddle-bags on his horse and went to see him. He came home with the old saddle bags full of money. The sale came off and he did not need the money. So next day he took it back as there were no notes given. His word was as good as a note. Their oldest daughter Barbara Beeker Pruitt was married down there. She was only 17 years when married and she had two children born there. She came north with her parents also. So that was known as the old Beeker homestead for a number of years.


Christina married John Beeker, son of Henry Beeker Sr. and Barbara Garner. (John Beeker was born on 11 Nov 1785 in , Rowan, NC,1 4 died on 21 Aug 1843 in Tippecanoe Township, Tippecanoe, IN, USA 4 10 and was buried in Battle Ground: Pretty Prairie Cemetery, Tippecanoe, IN, USA 4 10.)
