DICKSON BEATTY, farmer, Sec. 26; P.O. Cascade; born in Tyrone, Ireland, Dec. 17, 1832; at the age of 13,he came with his parents, Manes and Agnes Beatty, and three brothers, Alexander, John and Benjamin, came to Dubuque Co.; they had been preceded in the migration hither by his two brothers, James and David, and three sisters, Margaret, Sarah A. and Esther; from residences in Pennsylvania, Mississippi and New York, the family finally all collected here, and settled on adjoining farms in Dubuque and Jones Cos. At the age of 26, with no capital except forty acres of wild land, the subject of this sketch started in business for himself, and since then, with clear head, industrious hands, and ceaseless energy, has worked his way into the possession of a handsome competence and the control of an exceedingly flourishing business; has 461 acres of land in Secs.17, 25, 26, 34, 35 and 36; his business is most largely dairy-farming and stock-raising, is thoroughly well managed, brings him a fine income, and he owes no man a dollar. In religion, a Baptist; in politics, a Republican. He was married in 1854 to Miss Ann J. Barton, who came here at an early age from Ireland with her parents, James and Margaret Barton; they have ten children, as yet all members of the pleasant home circle- Henry, John, Margaret J., James D., Lizzie, Sarah, Ulysses S.G., George W., Mabel A. and Frederick.
