His parents were both born in Virginia. His name in the census is given as "Thos." The following children are not shown: Julia, William, James, and Luther, probably because they were older and already living elsewhere; and Elisha and Gilbert. Johnson T. Beasley, a grandson, reports in personal notes that two children died "in infancy." These two are likely Elisha and Gilbert. Johnson also wrote that "Grandfather Beasley was a carpenter and a farmer." Johnson Beasley also reported that Thomas "served with the famous regiment of Col. Mosby in the Civil War." Mosby's "guerilla band", the 43rd Battalion Virginia Cavalry Partisan Rangers, operated in the vicinity of Brandy Station, where the family home was located. However, no records have been found to substantiate this claim. The men of the 7th Virginia Cavalry took part in the famous Jones-Imboden Raid into Western Virginia. On Thursday, November 26, 1863, Mosby attacked a heavily guarded wagon train near Brandy Station; Mosby escaped unharmed; his horse was not so lucky, receiving a ball in the breast. Brandy Station is located about six miles northeast of Culpeper, Virginia on State Route 29. DEATH: According to Thomas Beasley's wife's obituary, "Her husband died in Virginia in October 1897." Other Civil War Regiments from Fauquier County: Black Horse Brigade (Troop) Company H, Fourth Brigade, Fourth Virginia Cavalry Warrenton Rifles, Company K, 17th Va. Infantry Regiment Mosby Regiment (Rangers), Partisan Rangers Hunton's Horse Troop (Brigade), Piedmont Rifles Company B, Eighth Regiment, Kemper's Brigade, Beauregard Rifles Company I, Eleventh Regiment, Brooke's Battery Battery A, 12th Battalion, Mountain Rangers (General Asbhy) Company A, Seventh Regiment, Virginia Cavalry Fauquier Artillery, Wise's Dragons, 6th Regiment, Cavalry Brigade --The Fauquier Historical Society

[655] Linda Ball Gibson puts death as 1901 per her grandmother's bible. Obituary Mrs. Ann E. Beasley died Monday morning, Jan. 24th, at 5 o'clock, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Pollard Strothers near Lexington, and was laid to rest in the Lexington cemetry [sic]. Her husband died in Virginia in October 1897. Deceased was a daughter of Samuel Claggett of Virginia, and was born in New Baltimore, Fauquier Co., Va. in the year 1835; aged 62 years and about 10 months. She was married to Thos. W. Beasley in 1851. To this union were born eleven children, eight of whom survive her besides two sisters who are now living in Virginia; two brothers, T. J. and B. F. Claggett, of this city, to mourn her loss. Mrs. Beasley was a half sister to Jas. A. and S. R Claggett, deceased. Rev. Myer, Pastor of the United Brethren church of Lexington, delivered a most touching and beautiful funeral sermon to a large concourse of friends and relatives. Her daughter, Mrs. Walling, from Washington, D.C. arrived, but too late to see her mother alive. Deceased united with the Episcopalian church thirty years ago and was a faithful member till death. Chicago, Washington City and Virginia papers please copy. The pall bearers were Samuel Johnson and Horace Claggett, James, Luther and Samuel Beasley, the last three her sons. --Lexington Herald Reader

[901] "James left no children." -- Johnson Tucker Beasley

[27] The 1900 Census gives his occupation as "Day Laborer". He left Virginia to settle in Illinois. Obituary: Luther Beasley is Called Suddenly Dies from Heart Failure Friday While at Work Husking Corn Luther Beasley, of Reva, Virginia, a former Lexington resident, who has been visiting for several weeks at the home of relatives at Lexington, was found dead Friday morning about seven o'clock in a field southeast of town near the home of his niece, Mrs. Earl Warner, where he had gone to shuck corn. Mr. Beasley had lived in Lexington for many years until two and a half years ago, when he moved to Virginia. He came back to Lexington recently with the intention of making this city his home again, and expected Mrs. Beasley to arrive from the south within a few days. He had not been feeling well Thursday night, but went into the field to shuck corn Friday morning and was found dead about seven o'clock, presumably from heart failure. He was born in Virginia, March 15, 1859, and moved to Lexington when but sixteen years old. He was united in marriage forty-five years ago to Metella [sic] Claggett, who died January 23. 1915. After his return to Virginia, be was married in September, 1916, to Dora Kilby, who survives. The following surviving children were born to his first marriage: J. P. [sic] Beasley of Kansas City, Mo.; Mrs. Beulah Garrett, of Lexington, Mrs. Frances Grimes of Normal, Guy, of Chicago, Felix, of Detroit, Mich., Mrs. Ruth Ricketts, of Lexington and Catharine, of Chicago. Funeral services were held from the Baptist church in Lexington at two o'clock, with the pastor, Rev. Edwin Erickson, in charge. A quartet composed of Mesdames Gilbert Jenkins and Estella F. Mowdy and Messrs. Joe Leach and Ira Whiteman, sang. The pallbearers were: William Anderson, Clayton Ballinger, Mack Wick, Edward Murphy, T. M. Patton and H. E. Flesher. Interment was made in the Lexington cemetery. Those from distance in attendance were: Lillian Taylor and Mrs. Bessie Corbon, all of Reva, Virginia. All of the children were present except Felix of Detroit.
