Note: The DAR cemetery listings for Clermont County, OH record a John Behymer listed as buried on the hillside opposite the Pierce township Cemetery next to his wife, Sarah A with footstones: JB and BB. In the author's opinion, the DAR ladies read the tombstone of John's wife incorrectly as Sarah A instead of Barbara. Likely, the tombstone was weathered and hard to read, and Sarah A (alternating consonants between the letter "A") was mistakenly recorded for Barbara (also the same pattern of consonants and vowels). He lived between 1782 and 1789 Botetourt County, VA. He lived between 1791 and 1803 Franklin County, VA. He lived after 1805 Clermont County, OH.165,166,167,168

Children of Samuel3 Behymer and Mary Parvin were as follows:

24. David3 Picklesimer Sr (John2, Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born circa 1767. He married Sarah Prater, daughter of Archibald Prater and Sarah Fugate, on 15 Apr 1817 Floyd County, KY.
He may have been married prior to his marriage to Sarah Prator. He was the progenitor of one of the branches of the Eastern Kentucky Picklesimers. See "The Picklesimers of Eastern Kentucky" by John Wayne and John Walter Picklesimer or the latter's web page for their descendants. Note: the parents of David, Sr are not conclusively known, but family legend has it that he was a brother of Abraham Adam. He is shown as a son of John, Sr in this descendancy narrative, based on the close association Samuel had with his brother David as described in Aaron Sargent Behymer's diary, coupled with the fact that he was the only David old enough, in the author's opinion, likely to have had a close association with a brother who was born in 1763. In a Clermont Courier newspaper article of 1893, it is stated that David "stayed in VA, not coming to OH." True, this David did not come to Clermont County, OH, but he didn't exactly stay in VA either, as he migrated from VA to Floyd County, KY and may, in fact, have later migrated to OH (TBD). Another fact to ponder is that Jonathan Beckelhymer, a Mormon and David's brother, if the author is correct in his assertion, did not have a deceased brother, David baptized at the Nauvoo Temple, as he did other close relatives circa 1845. Whether or not David was alive in 1845 is unknown as he seems to have left his family and disappeared circa 1822. Thus, his brother, Jonathan might not have had any knowledge if his brother were dead or alive in 1845. David stayed in VA, not coming to Clermont County, OH according to Aaron Sargent Behymer in his diary. Note: this David has not been conclusively established as the son of John, Sr. There were 3 David Picklesimers who show up in the early VA records, each thought to have been a son of one of the elder Picklesimers, John, Sr, Abraham, Sr or Jacob, Sr. In this descendancy narrative, the David who was the progenitor of one of the branches of the Eastern KY Picklesimers and who married Sarah Prater is shown as the son of John, Sr; the David who married Elizabeth Smith is shown as the son of Jacob, Sr; and the David who married Sarah Moore is shown as the son of Abraham, Sr. This alignment is logical and based on an analysis of the available evidence, mostly circumstantial, but is believed to reflect the most likely scenario in the opinion of the author. Note also that a David was reported to have married Elizabeth Sailor. This David is shown in the missing links section of the author's web page as this marriage was reported in error and this David did not, in fact, exist. He and Sarah Prater appeared on the census of 1820 Greenup County, KY.272
Sarah Prater was born in 1797 VA. She died in 1882. She was buried circa 1882 in Bluegrass Cemetery, Salyersville, Magoffin County, KY. She appeared on the census of 1840 Floyd County, KY.273 She appeared on the census of 27 Aug 1850 Floyd County, KY.274
Children of David3 Picklesimer Sr and Sarah Prater were as follows:

She stayed in VA, not coming to Clermont County, OH according to Aaron Sargent Behymer in his diary.277 She and John Beckett appeared on the census of 1810 Montgomery County, VA.278 She and John Beckett appeared on the census of 1820 Montgomery County, VA.279 She and John Beckett appeared on the census of 1830 Montgomery County, VA.280 She appeared on the census of 1840 Floyd County, VA.281

He and Christina Lazena appeared on the census of 1820 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.290 He and Christina Lazena appeared on the census of 1830 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.291
Christina Lazena was born between 1768 and 1770 VA.292,293 She died in 1839.294,295 She had a probable brother, Samuel Lazena, living in Ohio towhsnip, Clermont County, OH per the 1820 and 1830 censuses.296
Children of Joseph3 Bechtelheimer and Christina Lazena were as follows:

27. Nathaniel3 Behymer (John2 Picklesimer, Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born circa 1773 Frederick County, MD.299 He married Anna Magdalena Ferguson VA.300,301 He married Diadama Manning, daughter of Thomas Manning and Anna Todd, on 3 Apr 1817 Clermont County, OH.302,303,304,305,306 He died on 19 Dec 1860 Clermont County, OH.307,308,309 He was buried circa 19 Dec 1860 in Amelia IOOF Cemetery, Batavia Township, Clermont County, OH.310,311,312
Note: the surname of Nathaniel's first wife has not been conclusively established. It is thought to have been Ferguson based on her having been buried in the Ferguson Cemetery in Clermont County, OH. He lived between 1796 and 1797 Montgomery County, VA. He lived in 1800 Botetourt County, VA.313 He lived after 1805 Clermont County, OH. He and Diadama Manning appeared on the census of 1820 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.314 He and Diadama Manning appeared on the census of 1830 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.315 He and Diadama Manning appeared on the census of 1840 in Fulton Township, Hamilton County, OH.316 He appeared on the census of 14 Oct 1850 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.317 He and Diadama Manning appeared on the census of 6 Jun 1860 in Pierce Township, Clermont County, OH.318

Children of Nathaniel3 Behymer and Anna Magdalena Ferguson were as follows:
Diadama Manning was born circa 1793 CT.325,326 She married (--?--) Bonny.327 She died on 12 Feb 1874 in Ten Mile Creek, near Amelia, Clermont County, OH.328,329,330 She was buried circa 12 Feb 1874 in Amelia IOOF Cemetery, Batavia Township, Clermont County, OH.331 She appeared on the census of 5 Oct 1850 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.332 She appeared on the census of 21 Jun 1870 in Clark Township, Clinton County, OH.333
Children of Nathaniel3 Behymer and Diadama Manning were as follows:

28. Abraham Adam3 Picklesimer (John2, Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born on 4 Jun 1775 Frederick County, MD.334 He married Elizabeth Prater, daughter of Thomas Prater, on 29 Jul 1800 Franklin County, VA.335 He died on 11 Oct 1823 Floyd County, KY at age 48.336 He was buried circa 11 Oct 1823 in Abraham Adam Picklesimer (aka McKenzie Family) Cemetery, Volga, Johnson County, KY.
He lived between 1798 and 1804 Franklin County, VA. He was the progenitor of one of the branches of the Eastern Kentucky Picklesimers. See "The Picklesimers of Eastern Kentucky" by John Wayne and John Walter Picklesimer or the latter's web page for their descendants. Note: the parents of Abraham Adam are not conclusively known. In this descendancy narrative, Abraham Adam is shown as the son of John, Sr until such time as his parentage can be conclusively determined. This choice is based on an analysis of the available evidence, mostly circumstantial, but is believed to reflect the most likely scenario in the opinion of the author. In the Nauvoo Temple Baptisms of the dead records Jonathan (son of John, Sr) lists two separate Abrahams - one as a brother and one as an uncle. Abraham Adam of the VA records is believed by the author to be the brother. Abraham, Sr is obviously the uncle. An Abraham is not listed as one of the brothers of those who migrated to Clermont County circa 1800 as recorded in an 1893 Clermont Courier newspaper article, however. One is left to wonder why. The fact that this article was written many years after the events took place may explain the omission. Jonathan's information as recorded in the Nauvoo Temple records, being direct evidence is, in the author's opinion, the more persuasive. Abraham Adam's birth date also fits in well with the birth dates of the other children of John, Sr, in addition to which the naming pattern of Abraham Adam's children is almost the same as those of John, Sr, i.e., it seems that Abraham Adam named his children after his siblings. Only the son, Thomas, likely named after his wife's father, Thomas Prator, deviates from this pattern. He lived in 1808 Gallia County, OH. He and Elizabeth Prater appeared on the census of 1810 Floyd County, KY.337 He and Elizabeth Prater appeared on the census of 1820 Floyd County, KY.338

Children of Abraham Adam3 Picklesimer and Elizabeth Prater were as follows:

29. Jacob3 Behymer (John2 Picklesimer, Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born circa 1778 VA.349 He married Elizabeth France, daughter of John France and Magdalena (--?--).350 He died circa 9 Aug 1862 Clermont County, OH.351
He lived between 1801 and 1805 Franklin County, VA. He and Elizabeth France appeared on the census of 1820 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.352 He and Elizabeth France appeared on the census of 1830 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.353 He and Elizabeth France appeared on the census of 1840 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.354 He and Elizabeth France appeared on the census of 4 Oct 1850 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.355 He and Elizabeth France appeared on the census of 11 Jun 1860 in Pierce Township, Clermont County, OH.356

He lived between 1802 and 1816 Franklin County, VA. He and Mary B Webb appeared on the census of 1810 Franklin County, VA.368 He lived between 1817 and 1824 Garrard County, KY. He and Mary B Webb appeared on the census of 1820 Garrard County, KY.369 He and Mary B Webb appeared on the census of 1830 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.370 He and Mary B Webb appeared on the census of 23 Jul 1850 in Batavia Township, District No 22, Clermont County, OH.371 Note: Solomon's date of death as recorded on his tombstone is 8 Dec 1858, however, his will was probated on 2 Jan 1858. Thus, either the date on the tombstone or the date in the probate record is off by a year. More research needs to be done to determine which is the case.
Mary B Webb was born in 1787 VA.372 She died on 20 Sep 1870 Clermont County, OH.373 She was also known as Polly.374 She appeared on the census of 2 Jun 1860 in Monroe Township, Clermont County, OH.375

31. Enoch3 Beckelhymer (John2 Picklesimer, Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born circa 1783 Botetourt County, VA. He married Sarah Kinsey, daughter of Jacob Kinsey and Juliann Lemon.385 He died circa 10 Aug 1816 in Ohio Township, Clermont County, OH.386
According to Aaron Sargent Behymer in his diary, "an Enos Behymer lived only a very short time in Clermont County, OH and moved west. One of his descendants was living in St Louis, and worked for the Globe Democrat." It is believed by the author that Enos and Enoch were one and the same person, even though Enoch died in Clermont County circa 10 Aug 1816. Enoch's wife, Sarah Kinsey later married Abraham Stoner on 21 Mar 1822 in Preble County, OH. Shortly after their marriage, they moved to Montgomery County, OH where Abraham died in Feb 1829. After her second husband's death, Sarah later moved to Porter County, IN where she died on 10 May 1856. The author believes that Porter County, IN was the "west" that Aaron Sargent Behymer referred to in his diary. Sarah's children by Enoch are believed by the author to be those who conducted land transactions and/or were married in Montgomery County, OH during the same period that their mother was living in that county. Many of these same children also ended up in Porter County, IN, the same county that their mother had migrated to. Most, if not all, of their children were born in KY, which is also consistent with the fact that Enoch shows up on the tax rolls of Campbell County, KY during the same timeframe. Lastly, the naming pattern of Enoch's children is consistent with the names of Enoch's siblings.387 He and Sarah Kinsey lived between 1814 and 1815 Campbell County, KY.
Sarah Kinsey was born on 9 May 1786 VA. She married Abraham Stoner, son of Phillip Stoner and Platina Stutzman, on 21 Mar 1822 Preble County, OH.388 She died on 10 May 1856 at age 70. She was buried circa 10 May 1856 in Adams Cemetery, Morgan Township, Porter County, IN. She appeared on the census of 1820 in Gratis Township, Preble County, OH.389 She and Abraham Stoner lived between 1824 and 1830 in Jackson Township, Montgomery County, OH.

33. (--?--)3 Beckelhymer (John2 Picklesimer, Johan1 Bechtelsheimer) was born circa 1786 Botetourt (later Montgomery) County, VA. She married (--?--) Lower.
Note: Jonathan (son of John Behymer Sr) had a niece, Sarah Lower, recorded in the Nauvoo Temple Baptisms of the dead circa 1845. Based on this, John Sr likely had a daughter (name unknown) who married a Lower. Michael Lower (born 24 Jun 1742) and his family were living in Montgomery County, VA from 1802 to 1806 and in Clermont County, OH from 1806 to 1810, the same two counties and timeframes where the Behymers were known to have lived. Likely, one of the sons of Michael Lower (which one is unknown) married a daughter of John Behymer, Sr. The author believes that this daughter of John, Sr was by his last wife, Elizabeth Rinker based on the fact that she was likely born after 1785 since all 12 people in John Sr's household per the 1785 list of tithables for Botetourt County, VA are accounted for.
Children of (--?--)3 Beckelhymer and (--?--) Lower were as follows:

He was also known as David Beckelhymer. Note: date of birth estimated from date of marriage. Note: this David has not been conclusively established as the son of John, Sr. There were 3 David Picklesimers who show up in the early VA records, each thought to have been a son of one of the elder Picklesimers, John, Sr, Abraham, Sr or Jacob, Sr. In this descendancy narrative, the David who was the progenitor of one of the branches of the Eastern KY Picklesimers and who married Sarah Prater is shown as the son of John, Sr; the David who married Elizabeth Smith is shown as the son of Jacob, Sr; and the David who married Sarah Moore is shown as the son of Abraham, Sr. This alignment is logical and based on an analysis of the available evidence, mostly circumstantial, but is believed to reflect the most likely scenario in the opinion of the author.
