      Source: Kathryn Bales Porter - Abraham Beals (Bales) came to Wayne County, Ohio in the fall of 1811 on horseback from Lebanon County, Pennslyvania, and then seventy-five yearls old, and entered all the land west Lebanon area, which is 993 acres.

      Abraham Bales, father of Jacob Bales and grandfather of Solomon, Philip and Daniel Bales, came to Wayne county in the fall of 1811 on horseback, and then seventy-five years old, from Lebanon county, Pa., and entered all the land between Solomon Bales' and West Lebanon-993 acres; buying in addition to this a quarter section in Stark county. He died with his son, Caleb Bales, in Wayne county, at the age of eighty-eight. These 993 acres were divided among nine children, Jacob receiving the 145 acres where Daniel Bales now lives.

      Again in respect to the maternal side of tile family of Thomas Dill (1800.1877) it is suggested a1tlIough not proved it was Abraham Beals-(his grand father) who was reprimanded by the Friends in Huntington meeting, York County, Pennsylvania (II'I.JI. 1769) .for nbing guilty of dancing and be produced an acknowledgement to be read (12·9·1769). Again an Abraham Beals was tater complained of (4-10·1773) for marriage by a priest to one not a member" and he was denounced for that offense (7-10-1773) and read out of meeting because "he was married to Rebecca not a Friend" (See Records of Baltimore Anrru.a1 in Vaults of
      the Society, Baltimore, Maryland).

      A second record in Wayne County, Ohio, of Abraham Beals is found on a deed dated 15 June 1824 and another in' 1827, in which he and his wife ReIbecca sign their names wtth an x mark. There is another conveyance, dated 15 March 1836, in which Abraham conveys property in Wayne County to his daughter Lydia and his son-in-law, George Speidle, and is not joined in the deed by his wife Rebecca, who evidently had died. (Book of Deeds Vol. 6 p. 74 and Vol. 52 p. 649 and Book O. p. 235, Wayne
      County, Ohio).
