Descendance from Benjamin Beecraft to Howard Ray Lawrence

Robert Mutrie writes, "Bigcraft, Benjamin (c. 1758-) and his wife Elizabeth Westbrook lived in colonial New York. During the American Revolution, Benjamin came to Niagara and served in the Indian Department. He subsequently settled in Ancaster Township, Wentworth County. Their son James Bigcraft/Beecraft (1794-1853) lived in Oakland Township, Brant County, then in Charlotteville Township, Norfolk County. Includes two to three generations of descendants from James."
