      General William Beall
      Christian Index Obituary:
      September 18, 1851, Page 151, Col. 6
      "Died at Ellijay, on 22nd August, GEN. W. BEALL of Carroll County, Georgia. It seems that GEN. BEALL had gone to Ellijay on a visit to his daughter's in that place,and was not heard to complain. He stepped out of the house of his daughter's and was a few minutes afterward found dead. The writer of this notice supposes he was about 57 years of age; he had been an orderly, zealous member of the Baptist church about 23 years. His remains were brought to Carroll and interred on the 25th of August. His death will be greatly lamented by a large circle of friends.
      General William Beall was born and raised in Franklin County, Ga. He acted as brigade inspector for several years, and distinguished himself as a military officer. He acted as sheriff in Franklin County, four years, and represented that county several years in the State Legislature. General Beall removed to Carroll County in 1831, and a few years afterward was elected by the Legislature, Adjutant General of the State, in connection with Gen. Newman, by which he became extensively known throughout the state, and his talents as an officer were highly appreciated. Since that time he has served the counties of Carroll and Campbell as Senator in the State Legislature."

      Gen Wm Beall served as Georgia Justice, Inferior Court, Franklin County, 1820-1821; Justice, Inferior Court, Carroll County, 1834-1837, 1841-1844; Representative, Franklin County, 1829, 1830; Senator, Carroll County, 1832, 1833, 1836, 1841; Senator, 30th District, 1845; Member Convention, 1839, Carroll County; Lieutenant 225th District, Clark County, Georgia Militia, 1806; Captain, 263rd District, Franklin County, Georgia Militia, 1813. General in the War with Mexico, 1836

      From: "CARROLL COUNTY AND HER PEOPLE"
      By Private Joe Cobb, Page 68
      "General William Beall was a very early settler of Carroll County. He settled on Buck Creek, four miles north of Carrollton where he lived and died. He was a General of the Militia, a farmer and sometimes politician. He represented Carroll County in the State Senate in 1832, 1833, 1836 and 1841. He raised a large family of noble boys and good girls. In order to remember the names of all the boys and impress them on the mind, the youngest son, now Col. John B. Beall wrote and sang the names to the tune of that good old song about old Noah etc, thus: 'There was old father Noah and ten thousand more, prayed as they journeyed along. There was Otho, and August and Thomas and William and James and Noble and John'--seven in all. The girls were Mary, Martha and Millie."
