      DANIEL BEACH

      Was born in Warren, Litchfield County, Connecticut, March 16, 1785. In 1805 he came on foot to Canfield, Mahoning County, Ohio, and worked one year, then returned and married Lorinda Sacket, January 1, 1810. He purchased two hundred acres of wild land in what is now Summit county, Ohio, to which he removed in 1811, coming the entire route with a yoke of oxen and one horse. In 1812 he was drafted in the military service and served near Fort Croghan six months. In 1823 he disposed of his farm and accompanied Bradord Sturtevant in search of a new home to Ruggles township, Huron, now Ashland county, and purchased, of Jessup & Wakeman, of Connecticut, one mile square of land in section three, he taking the west and smallest part. He returned, and in July 1823, removed with his wife and five children--Cyrus, Reuben, Cordelia, Harriet, and Daniel, to his new home in the forest, about one mile west of what is now known as the corners. The paths in the forest were narrow, and required quite an effort to get over by teams. He had two yoke of oxen to haul his goods. He encamped one night in Medina County, and one night at Sullivan center. A man--Mr. John Soles--piloted him thence by way of New London. He encamped one night on the route in what is now Troy, and again at New London, and was just one week in reaching his forest home. Their first supper was cooked at the fire of a deserted Indian camp on the premises. The forest was dense, and it required years of unremitting toil to prepare the lands for culture. Mr. Beach was accompanied in his removal by Eleazer Sacket, a brother-in-law. He built a pole cabin, ten by fifteen feet, in which he resided until he built a log cabin. By fall he had cleared five acres, which he put in wheat. Other pioneers began to select lands, and Mr. Beach's cabin was frequently visited. In the winter of 1824 he hired hands, and cleared the timber from one hundred acres. In the spring he and Bradford Sturtevant returned to Tallmadge and purchased apple-trees for new orchards, some of which yet bear fruit. Mr. Beach, by industry and economy, accumulated a handsome property. In 1854 he divided his homestead between his two sons, Wakeman and William, and removed to Kent County, Michigan. Mrs. Beach died on a visit to Ruggles, at the residence of her son, Cyrus Beach, in November 1856. Mr. Beach subsequently married Mrs. Frances Peck, widow of Tylor Peck. He died at his residence in Ruggles in May 1862. He was remarkable for his habits of industry and enterprise. He was exact and careful in all his business transactions, and his integrity was never questioned. His children were Cyrus S., Reuben K., Harriet I., married to Rollin Curtiss, Daniel, deceased, Wakeman J., and Cordelia M., married to Isaac Cowell. Most of the family reside within Ruggles Township, and are noted as farmers and stock growers. Wakeman Beach, born January 11,1825, is believed to have been the first child born within the township. He resides on the old homestead west of the corners. I am indebted to him for the foregoing sketch.

      Daniel Beach
      Daniel Beach was the eldest child of Reuben and Hannah (Kimball) Beach (For a sketch of these pioneers the reader is refered to Vol 1st of Historical Collections, Page 102) And was born in Warren, Conn, March 16th 1785. He, like others of that day had a rather limited education; but his father being one of the prosperous farmers of his day, and industrious and economical habits absolutely necessary, in order to be successful in business. Daniel Beach, appeared to have these requisite qualifications by inheritance; for he was quick and active of good judgement and decission, somewhat impulsive, and was a man that would express his opinion, in a manner to create unpleasant feelings sometimes. He was a good neighbor always ready to help the needy, and the afflicted, he identified himself with the interests of the town, and of schools, and in society. Although he was not a professor of religion, yet he was a regular attendant, on public worship on the Sabbath; and always helped support the Gospel ministrations, in the Cong Church and society. He was a liberal subscriber, when the first efforts were made to erect the first Cong'l Meeting House in Tallmadge, and was one of the contestants to get the first stick of hewing timber on the ground where it was to be used on the 24th day of Dec 1821. Mr Daniel Beach was married to Lorinda the 2nd daughter of Salmon and Mercy M. Sackett, on the 1st day of Jan 1810. When his father in law Dea Salmon Sackett, had resolved to dispose of his farm in Warren, for land in Tallmadge, in part pay and Dea Sackett, having visited the country, his description of the fertility of the soil, it had an inducement on Mr. Beaches mind, to think whether the rocky hills of his native town, or the soil of Tallmadge, with its heavy growth of timber, was preferable; his father was disposed to purchase a farm of Co. Tallmadge, without any improvement and help him to outfit of such things

      as he would need in the dense forests of the Western Reserve. He and his wife and heir first born, Cyrus Beach, who was the first grand child of Dea and Mrs. Sackett, left Conn in company and all arrived safe in Tallmadge, the first Monday of July 1811. He selected Lot 5 of Tract 11 of ___ acres. Daniel Beach was without doubt the 4th settler on Tract 11. He made good use of his time and energies, his father paid for the farm he had selected, it was an unbroken forest of heavy timber, and it was to be subdued, and the wilderness to become a fruitful field. Mr. and Mrs Beach were the ones to battle with the stern realities of pioneer life.
      He selected a place by a spring and built his log house near the present residence of Mr James Chamberlin, (1877) and in 12 years had a fine farm fenced, an orchard set out and in 1819 built the third frame barn on the Tract.
      In the early spring of 1823, he sold this farm to Garry Treat of Orange, Conn. Br. Beach, bought a tract of land in Ruggles, Huron Co., O, on the west side of the town west of the Vermillion River; he being the first settler. He and his family arrived in Ruggles Aug 2nd 1823. the 2nd family which was Mr. Bradford Sturtevant arrived in Sept 1823, which comprized all the white population in these two families in Ruggles. His son Wakeman J Beach, was the first white child born in Ruggles, he was born Jan 11th 1825
