Lurana Beatty

Lurana Beatty Smith remains problematic as her placement as a natural child of Dempster remains uncertain. From her tombstone, it appears she was b. 7 Jan. 1806 in Ohio, which would seem to preclude her from being Dempster's daughter, from his first marriage. She is, however, listed as his daughter in a biographical sketch compiled by Dempster Beatty Jr titled "Portrait and Biographical Memoir of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties, Indiana." On a later census Lurana is listed with her uncle, William Ferguson. This suggests she had strong ties with the Ferguson family.

Perhaps Lurana was an out-of-wedlock child, born to Elizabeth Ferguson prior to Elizabeth's marriage to Dempster in 1812. If so, she would be an adopted child of Dempster.

Lurana married Purdy Smith March 23, 1834 in LaPorte County, Indiana. Purdy was the son of Amos and Sarah Purdy Smith. Purdy was born on Apr 28, 1801 in New York. He died Apr 3, 1844 in LaPorte County, Indiana. Lurana died Aug 26, 1887 in Johnson County, Iowa.

  • Edwin D. Smith, b 1835; died Before 1900 in Johnson County, Iowa. He married Sabina Bird.
  • Elizabeth H. Smith, b Aug 25, 1838; d Nov 25, 1900 in Johnson County, Iowa. She married Casson A. Foster.
