     William Pitt Beatty was born on 14 February 1846.1 He died on 13 March 1923 in Carlisle, Cumberland, Pennsylvania, USA, at age 77.3 He was buried at Ashland Cemetery in Carlisle, Cumberland, Pennsylvania, USA.3
     In 1860 he was a student presumably living in Carlisle, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. At adulthood, he stood 5' 8" tall with light hair and blue eyes and functioned as a bookkeeper. He apparently never married. There is some question whether his middle name was "Pitt" or "Piper."

A Civil War veteran, he first served as a private with the 1st Pennsylvania Emergency Militia September 13 - 24, 1862, during the Antietam crisis, overstating his enlistment age by two years. He also enlisted with the regular army in Chambersburg May 23, 1864, and assigned as a private with the U.S. Signal Corps. He honorably discharged by general order July 24, 1865, his "services no longer required."3
