Baty Family

WILLIAM BATY was born about 1770-75.  Not much is known about his family, though it might have been "Beatty" from northern Ireland.
From Cumbrian [England) Genealogy:
Jane Salkeld married William Baty - 5 Aug1770 (Alston)

His father may have been Patrick Beatty -
When William Beatty/Baty m. Margaret Hazel in 1793 in Washington County, KY, witnesses were Patrick Beatty and James & Mary (Beatty) McKenney.  Mary was daug of Patrick.

He probably had two brothers:
    1. George Baty (born abt 1773-78; m April 7, 1802, Livingston Co., KY to Isabel Farsythe)
    2. David Baty (born abt 1779-85; in 1801 he was age 16-20 and living in Livingston Co., KY. He m Neoma ?  He died 1870-80 in McLennon Co, TX).

William married June 1, 1793 in Washington or Mercer Co, KY to Margaret Hazel (b 1769, Ky or Va; d Nov 1859/60, Thomasville, Oregon Co, Mo). [Their marriage is listed in both Washington Co. and Mercer Co., Ky]

William was living on Claylick Watercourse in Livingston Co. 1790 to abt 1820
Livingston Co., KY.  Tax List - 1801:
    George Baty, over 21
    David Baty, age 16-20
    William Baty, over 21
Livingston Co., KY.  Tax list 1802:
    George Batty, over 21, one horse, 1 black over 16, total blacks-2
    William Batty, over 21, one horse. 150 acres on Claylick watercourse.

(In 1820 there was a William & a Joseph Baty in Grayson Co., Ky.)

Margaret was 50 years old in 1819 when William Daniel was born. She already had a son named Daniel H. (b 1795) and a son named William Samuel (b 1816). Maybe they just repeated names (or maybe Wm. Daniel is a grandson?)
In 1820 Grayson Co., Ky. there was a William Baty (31--1-/321-1-2) & a Joseph Baty.

By 1821 the family had moved to Pope Co., IL where some of the children married (Mary in 1821, George in 1823, Margaret in 1825). William must have died about 1820 in Ky or 1821-25 in IL. Margaret was listed in Pope Co, IL as a widow in 1825.  The Hazel family must have moved to Illinois with them because their son George Baty married Melinda Hazel (maybe a cousin) in Pope Co IL in 1823.

[Below right is an 1838 map of the southern end of Illinois; on the left is a 2003 map showing Eddyville in yellow where daughter Mary married John Huddleston.]

1838 IL

In 1830 there was a George W. Batey in Pope Co, Ill (b 1810) [maybe this was their son] He doesn't appear there in 1840.
These are the Pope Co, IL marriages of our Batys:
Mary Baity m John Huddleston, June 21, 1823
George W. Baty m Melinda Hazle, Aug 11, 1823
Margaret Beaty m Thomas Jones, Apr 12, 1825
These Pope Co marriages may have been relatives:
Nancy P. Baity m Henry L. Dixon, Oct 21, 1841
Caroline M. Beaty m William Dixon, Oct 14, 1842
Roda Emaline Beaty m Newton M. Turner, July 19, 1846
William Baity m Araminto Aron, Mar 1, 1848
Clarsia E. Baity m Stephen M. Medley, Nov 23, 1848
Indiana Beaty m Joseph Modglin, Oct 10, 1850
Malinda Baity m James Modglin, Nov 17, 1850
There were several more Baty (Baity/Beaty) marriages in that county after 1850. There also were several Hazel marriages after 1830.

Margaret moved to Oregon Co., MO with her children by 1826. Not sure if all of her children moved to Oregon Co, Mo. For sure 3 of her 4 daughters did: Malinda Huddleston, Polly Huddleston and Matilda Dexter, and 2 sons, William Samuel & William Daniel.  There were other Baty & Hazel marriages in Pope Co, IL after their move, so they probably left relatives there.

BATY, William S. & Mahaly McCAMMON - married 23 Sep 1838 (Ripley Co, before Oregon Co estab)

Margaret was 90 years old when she died near Thomasville. She was listed on the 1860 Mortality Schedule of Oregon Co, Mo: "90 years old, born Kentucky, died Nov." [If this list was taken in the summer, then she died Nov, 1859.]
