Information given by N. Brown to B. Swain: The "Genealogy and History Magazine", Washington D.C. 15 March 1946 #11118, gives Ruth (daughter of Alexander) Beall's mother as Elizabeth Dick Beall.
My commentary: According to the information I have Elizabeth Hepburn and Alexander Beall were married in 1691. This would mean that Ruth Beall would have been Elizabeth Hepburn's stepdaughter. Elizabeth Hepburn must have been the second wife of Alexander Beall and perhaps this Elizabeth Dick was the mother of Alexander's first four children - Ruth, Ninnian, John, and James (all born prior to 1690).
The marriage date I have for Elizabeth Hepburn and Alexander Beall was off the internet and isn't sourced.Does anyone have any further information about this marriage and family?
