Research Note:

A comparison of the 1830 and 1840 census enumerations of Robert and Mary's household with the list of their known and attributed children listed in the Beatty genealogy suggests the following possible children are unaccounted for:
-1 daughter born between 1825-1830
-1 son born between 1830 and 1835
-2 daughters born between 1835 and 1840.

There are three children listed in the Beatty genealogy the I have not included:
-Frank, no other information has been found
-James A., born 1846, died 31 May 1855, no further information about the source
-Elizabeth married Weld N. Alden. While Weld N. Alden's wife's name was Eliza Beatty, she was born in about 1813 making her too old to have been a child of Robert and Mary.6,7,11,12

     Mary Ann Beatty was born on 2 April 1787 in Pennsylvania.1,2 She was the daughter of Robert Beatty and Agnes (?)1,2 She married John Kelly.3,4 She died on 19 December 1829 in Oakland Township, Venango County, at age 42.2 She was buried in Dempsey Cemetery, Oakland Township.2
     
Research Note, 30 January 2013:

According to Robert Beatty's Will, Robert had a daughter named Mary. While it is commonly accepted by researchers of this Beatty family that the Mary Beatty who married John Kelly was the daughter of Robert Beatty, there is no definitive evidence to support that. However, I believe that substantial circumstantial evidence does exist that make it highly likely. The proximity of John Kelly to Robert Beatty in Sugarcreek Township and the naming convention of John and Mary's likely children, namely Nancy, Robert, and Beatty, suggest that Robert's daughter Mary was the wife of John Kelly.1,5,6
     Mary Ann Beatty and John Kelly lived in what is now in Oakland Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania. The area where they lived was part of Sugarcreek Township until Oakland Township was established in 1841. The first school taught in what is now Oakland Townshp was taught by John in the years 1805 or 1806, in the house then occupied by Jonas Reynolds. It is noted in the 1879 Venango County History, that the first marriage witnessed in the settlement that is now Dempseytown was that of John Kelly and Miss Beatty. That marriage was performed by Rev. Chase.5
     
Research Note, 30 January 2013:

There is no definitive evidence known to this researcher as to the identity of any of John and Mary (Beatty) Kelly's children. Nancy, Robert, Sarah, John, and Beaty have commonly been cited by family researchers and included by this researcher along with explanations of the evidence supporting the claim. Largely this evidence includes the proximity of these individuals in both time and place that strongly suggesst they are children of John and Mary. However, census records also suggest that John and Mary had other children which include a son born between 1810 and 1815 and another son born between 1820 and 1825. The identity of these possible children has not been determined.7

John Kelly1

b. circa 1778, d. 13 June 1849
     John Kelly was born circa 1778.2 He married Mary Ann Beatty, daughter of Robert Beatty and Agnes (?).1,3 He died on 13 June 1849 in Oakland Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania.2 He was buried in Dempsey Cemetery, Oakland Township.2
     
Research Note, 30 January 2013:

According to Robert Beatty's Will, Robert had a daughter named Mary. While it is commonly accepted by researchers of this Beatty family that the Mary Beatty who married John Kelly was the daughter of Robert Beatty, there is no definitive evidence to support that. However, I believe that substantial circumstantial evidence does exist that make it highly likely. The proximity of John Kelly to Robert Beatty in Sugarcreek Township and the naming convention of John and Mary's likely children, namely Nancy, Robert, and Beatty, suggest that Robert's daughter Mary was the wife of John Kelly.4,5,6
     John Kelly and Mary Ann Beatty lived in what is now in Oakland Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania. The area where they lived was part of Sugarcreek Township until Oakland Township was established in 1841. The first school taught in what is now Oakland Townshp was taught by John in the years 1805 or 1806, in the house then occupied by Jonas Reynolds. It is noted in the 1879 Venango County History, that the first marriage witnessed in the settlement that is now Dempseytown was that of John Kelly and Miss Beatty. That marriage was performed by Rev. Chase.5
     
Research Note, 30 January 2013:

There is no definitive evidence known to this researcher as to the identity of any of John and Mary (Beatty) Kelly's children. Nancy, Robert, Sarah, John, and Beaty have commonly been cited by family researchers and included by this researcher along with explanations of the evidence supporting the claim. Largely this evidence includes the proximity of these individuals in both time and place that strongly suggesst they are children of John and Mary. However, census records also suggest that John and Mary had other children which include a son born between 1810 and 1815 and another son born between 1820 and 1825. The identity of these possible children has not been determined.7

Alonzo Henry Melat
     Henry Alonzo Melat was born on 10 October 1858 in Rockland Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania.1 He was the son of Robert Melat Jr. and Julia Ann Morrison.1 He married Jennie R. Graham on 15 December 1901 in Houston, Harris County, Texas.2 He died on 9 June 1953 in McAllen, Texas, at age 94.1 He was buried in Valley Memorial Gardens, McAllen, Texas.1
     Henry Alonzo Melat also went by the name of Lon Melat.3
     Lon grew up in Rockland Township, but moved west to work in the oil fields of Illinois and Indiana. He made his way south to the fields of Louisiana, Arkansas, and Texas. He became a well-known oil well driller in that area. He became drilling superintendent for Gulf Refining Company, later known as Gulf Oil Corporation. During the early 1900s, attention began to focus on offshore oil production. It was Lon who designed Gulf's first "over-water oil rig." The first well that was drilled using these methods penetrated the bottom of Caddo Lake, Louisiana in 1912. As a result of his accomplishments Lon moved up through the ranks at Gulf. Soon after the Caddo Lake success, he became production superintendent for Louisiana. Later he became a vice-president for Gulf, moving to McAllen, Texas. He worked for Gulf Oil for a total of sixty years.4,5
