John Beatty 1809 (Shoreline near 185th)

I think this is a photograph of a very old painting. On the back it says "John Beatty, Born February 9, 1809. It's been passed down in my family for several generations because my grandmother was a Beatty, and the family lore is that the Beatty branch of the family was from Pennsylvania. Any Beatty genealogists out there? I'd hate to give it to a thrift shop; would prefer to find someone with a Beatty connection.
13" wide by 15.75" tall, hardwood frame with glass.
