    America Fourth to eighth generation.
    "Beach Jennings was a self-made man. His father, Phileman Jennings,
    having lost his property was unable to give his children the advantages
    of education he otherwise would. Beach Jennings, his oldest son, at the
    age of ten years commenced working on a farm during the summer seasons
    and attended school during the winter seasons, at the age of sixteen he
    commenced teaching; he was a constant reader, a brilliant scholar; he
    taught what was called a select school in the higher branches in New
    York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania until he was married and settled in
    Franklin. He was appointed Deputy Sheriff and established himself as a
    Surveyor and Civil Engineer; he held important offices in that town
    during life; he was for a long time Justice of the Peace and for many
    years Associate Judge in that county. His tastes were simple and few; his
    advice was often sought in town and personal matters; on the Bench his
    deliberations were slow, having in view the gravity of the questions and
    a sense of his responsibility." --From manuscript of Francis A. White.

    From: Proceedings of the Board of Supervisors of the County of Delaware
    [NY] Nov. 10th., 1832
    Town Accounts; Town of Franklin
    Beach Jennings; 8.62 1/2

    Franklin in 1832.
