ABRAHAM BEEKMAN

     Abraham Beekman, son of James A. Beekman and Susannah Hill, was a farmer. The family lived on a farm near Locust Grove, Ohio. The children played on Serpent Mound. They moved to South Webster Pike in Vernon Township, Scioto County, Ohio. My mother, who is 82 years old, said that the family recounted the trip from Locust Grove to South Webster Pike. They drove a wagon on what is now Rt. 52 north to Lucasville and crossed the Scioto River there. Route 52 runs along the old Erie Canal.
