In the post-Revolutionary period, ? Basiley and Samuel Sneaden had built houses on  portions of adjacent estates close by the East River in Green Point section of Bushwick.


"On the river bank (between India and Java streets) was the old [pre-Revolutionary] Abraham Meserole house. Upon this estate was erected, in later times, a building known as the Baisley house, which was used for many years as a tenant house for the farm. It [was located] on H, near Franklin street." —Stiles: , "History of Brooklyn",Vol II, p 407.

Leonard Beasley & Elizabeth Sneden had the following children:

    i. Elizabeth Beasley (1818 -1900), poss. adopted; 
   ii. Sarah Ann Beasley (1820-1902*); 
  iii. Leonard Beasley, Jr  (1823-1887);
  iv. Jacob S. Beasley (3 Jan 1826, Brooklyn - int.11 Nov 1868*, Lot 17867 Green-Wood Cem, Brooklyn) m. Sarah -?- and lived in Brooklyn, NY; and

The 1820 U.S. Census [NY, Kings Co, Brooklyn, page 26] lists a Leond Baseley, age 16-26, residing in Brooklyn with one female, age 16-26. [No dau. Elizabeth, <10.] The adjacent head of household is a Mrs Baseley (over 45, widow) with 3 girls (all 10-16) and a young woman (16-26).

The 1830 U.S. Census [NY, Kings Co, Brooklyn, page 365] lists Leonard Beasley (30-40) residing on District Street (near Smith) in the Cobble Hill section of Brooklyn with two boys under five [Jacob 4 & Samuel, <1], one boy 5-10 [Leonard, Jr], one girl 5-10 [Sarah Ann, 10], and a woman 30-40 [Elizabeth, 32]. [No dau. Elizabeth, 11-20.]

The 1840 US census [NY, Kings Co, Brooklyn, Ward 6] lists Leonard Baysley with 1 male 5-10 [Samuel, 9], 1 male 10-15 [Jacob, 14], 1 male 15-20 [Leonard Jr, 17], 1 male 40-50 [Leonard, ~45], 1 female <5 (?), 1 female 15-20 [Sara, 20], 1 female 40-50 [Elizabeth, 42].

There is a notable absence in the census records of a daughter in the Leonard Beasley household of an age expected for Elizabeth. It is plausible that Elizabeth was the daughter of Leonard's brother, Abraham, who died between 1820 and 1830. A daughter of appropriate age is listed with her widow mother in the 1830 census. It would be appropriate to conclude that Leonard & Elizabeth adopted Abraham's daughter, Elizabeth.

Excerpts from Last Will and Testament of Leonard Beasley, probated 17 Nov 1843.

“To wife Elizabeth $500 and lands. Balance of estate to children [not named]. Executors: said wife and son Leonard. Witnesses: Nathan B. Morse, counselor at law and John Stoothoff, both of Brooklyn.

Petition by said widow, of Rockland Co., NY shows testator died at Brooklyn 3 June 1843leaving said widow and said son, and daughters Elizabeth, wife of Abner Conklin; Sarah, wife of Cornelius Stoothoff; and sons Jacob, and Samuel, said Leonard, Jacob and Samuel being minors."

      [Note: John Willsey and Elizabeth Beasley were 2ndcousins: his mother, Phebe Gesner, was Elizabeth Beasley's g-aunt and Nicholas Gesner's sister. Also, John Willsey's granddaughter, Ada (through his son John Gesner Willsey), would marry John Beasley, grandson of Elizabeth through Leonard, Jr. The "Old" c. 1789 Willsey/Bolting House on the 19 acre tract (less the "New" (c.1740) Willsey House of Capt. John Willsey) was likely that which housed Elizabeth and her son, Samuel, after the death of Leonard Beasley.]

      [Note: It is likely that Samuel Beasley sold his 19-acre Palisades, NY, farm by the mid 1860s, to Francis Bolting as listed in the 1870 census and shown on the 1874 Serviss map. The "Old" Willsey/Beasley house became the Bolting House in the 1860's and was razed in 1952 for the Palisades Interstate Parkway.]

In the fall of 1843, a few months after the death of Leonard, Elizabeth and her younger unmarried children (Leonard, Jacob, and Samuel) moved to Closter road, Palisades, NY, to reside in a dwelling on the John Willsey farm (her second cousin) which would subsequently become the Bolting House (no longer standing, but just north of her g-uncle, Nicholas Gesner). This was just across the state line from her daughter Elizabeth Conklin and her husband, Abner, who were living with or next to her parents, Samuel Sneden, Jr, & Elizabeth Conklin, in Harrington Twp, NJ.

In the 1850 census [NY, Rockland Co, Orangetown, page 202] lists Elizabeth Beasley (52) as head of household with Samuel Beasley (19).

Elizabeth married 2nd in Dec 1853 at Tappan RDC to Daniel Duryea (5 Nov 1804 - bef.1858) of Orangetown.  In 1858 Elizabeth was described as a widow residing in Brooklyn. Most of the Beasley family were interred in the Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn.

2i.   Elizabeth Beasley (17 July 1818, Brooklyn - 15 Feb 1900, int. Rockland Cem, Sparkill, NY), likely orphaned daughter of Abraham Beasley & Mary -?- and "adopted" by Leonard Baysley & Elizabeth Sneden. Elizabeth wed c.1839 Abner Conklin (8 Aug 1815, in Tappan, NY - 25 Dec 1896, int. Rockland Cem, Sparkill, NY), a builder of "British-style" houses and son of Matthias Conklin & Marytje Wagel of Tappan, NY. Abner served in the Civil War. He applied for a pension on 19 Feb 1883. Elizabeth S. Conklin applied for a widow's pension for her mother on 10 Mar 1897.

Abner Conklin and Elizabeth Beasley had two children:

    i. Elizabeth Sneden Conklin (8 Aug 1843*-?),
   ii. Emeline Conklin
, (14 Mar 1844* -dy).

The 1840 Federal census lists Abner Conklin and his wife (likely Elizabeth Beasley, with no children) living adjacent to Samuel Sneden - Elizabeth's step grandfather.

About 1850, Abner bought a parcel of land in Palisades (78 Closer Road) from Maria Lawrence and built a hip-roofed, timber-framed, clapboard-sided house in the Greek Revival style. Conklin family heirs lived in the Conklin House in Palisades, NY, well into the 20th century.

Samuel's presence in Rockland, NJ, is indicated by the census of 1870 and the Walker map of 1876. While listed as Farmer, Samuel appears to have established Beasley's General Store in Norwood on the south side of Central Avenue, just west of the Erie RR Line. Samuel established a cider mill (Samuel Beasley's Cider Mill) on the property. 

"Samuel Beasley...had a cider mill and stored the cider in a vault... Some of the cider was treated so it would not get to be hard cider, and some was allowed to turn to vinegar. A horse was used to run the tread mill to grind the apples."*
