The BEACH Family

New Jersey, Louisiana, Ohio, Kansas

    The BEACH family is another stray grouping. There seem to be quite a few Beaches with likely connections around Rockaway, New Jersey, and these are easily documented. The names of the spouses and children of Charles Hoff BEACH, our subject, seem to coincide with other families in this area, as well - KELLOGG, JACKSON, HALSEY, HOFF. I've even read online a listing for Charles which states he is the son of Samuel Serrin and Nancy BEACH of Rockaway, but as it is undocumented and the author did not respond to my queries, I will refrain from making this connection for now. If there's anyone out there who can help me find pertinent records for the Beaches, I would be most grateful.
