26. Book: David founded Beechersville as told in the History of Adams County, 1886. 32
BEECHERSVILLE. The hamlet is situated on the west line of the township, about one mile southeast of Arendtsville, and three miles west by south of Biglerville. The settlement was founded, in 1825, by David Beecher, on lands warranted, in 1788, by Jacob Gilbert. This year he build a tannery, and in 1832 erected the woolen-mills on a site occupied for forty years before by the old carding and fulling-mill. The Conowago Woolen Factory, owned by David Beecher and Robert Morrison, was an important industry as early as 1828. He also built a paper- mill in 1837, one-quarter mile down the creek. R. G. McCreary converted this into a box board factory, the Conowago Paper Company enlarged it, and manufactured straw printing paper until its destruction by fire in 1875. In 1873 newspaper paper was manufactured by Ingram & Cook, of Beechersville, who leased the R. G. McCreary mills.

There are over 1200 graves, over which there are no stones or markers, many of these having been broken off or pulled out by vandal hands to be piled up, with few exceptions in the corner of the old graveyard. The names of many of the dead are still preserved in the living descendants. We are informed that no parish record antedating 1870 is extant. "

28. Newspaper: Gettysburg Times: History of Adams County: Beechersville, 21 Jan 1932, Gettysburg, Adams, PA. (Reprinted from the "History of Cumberland and Adams County" by Warren, Beers & Co., Chicago, 1886).

Beechersville
This hamlet is situated on the west line of the township, about one mile southeast of Arendtsville, and three miles west by south of Bilgerville.
The settlement was founded in 1825, by David Beecher, on lands warrented, in 1788, by Jacob Gilbert. This year he built a tannery, and in 1823 erected the woolen-mills on a site occupied for forty years before by the old carding and fulling-mill. The Conowago Woolen factory, owned by David Beecher and Robert Morrison, was an important industry as early as 1828. He also built a paper-mill in 1837, one-quarter mile down the creek. R. G. McCreary converted this into a box board factory, the Conowago Paper company enlarged it, and manufactured straw printing paper until its destruction by fire in 1875. In 1873 news paper was manufacturered by Ingram & Cook, of Beechersville, who leased the R. G. McCreary mills. The Conowago Paper company was organized in May, 1873, with E. W. Stahle, president; R. G. McCreary, secretary; W. A. Duncan, treasurer; O. F. Ingram, superintendent, and Col. Cook, machinist, for the manufacture of straw printing paper.
Down the creek from Beechersville are the Roth mills, established about fifty-eight years ago, on the David McConaughy lands of 1733. About this time Mr. McConaughy built the first grist-mill on this tract.
In 1807 John Mumma erected the present grist-mill. the McConaughy tract was patented to Mose Harland, by the Penns, in 1745. Harland was led there by Indians, who spoke highly of the soil and water-power. It is strange that an industry established by David McConaughy 153 years ago should find a home here still -- stranger is it that a grandson or great-grandson of this useful pioneer should be interested in a grist-mill some six miles south, at Gettysburg, today.


David married Anna Maria Gilbert, daughter of Jacob Gilbert and Anna Margaretha Fox, in York: Reformed Church, York, PA. (Anna Maria Gilbert was born on 25 Apr 1797 in Arendtsville, Adams, PA 4 9, christened on 9 Jul 1797 in Arendtsville: Arendtsville Union Church (Zion Lutheran and Trinity Reformed; Arents Church), Adams, PA,33 died on 30 Jul 1887 in Beechersville, Adams, PA 9 34 and was buried in Arendtsville: Fairview Cemetery, Adams, PA.)
