Beals Historical Society Books

Tall Barney and His People

The Beals Historical Society has combined the two books, "Tall Barney Genealogy" and "Tall Barney" (the legend), originally published by Velton Peabody, into one book entitled, "Tall Barney and His People". 

Tall Barney's forefather Authur Beal Jr originally came from Plympton, Devonshire, England c1655 and settled in York Maine. Barney's Great Grandfather, Manwarren Beal Jr, moved to Beals Island Maine mid-1700's. The "Beal" name can also be spelled as "Beale".  If you or any of your forefather's or mother's, were "Beal" or "Beale", Tall Barney or Barnabas Coffin Beal, III, could be your relative.
