Samuel Q. Richardson was shot dead by John U. Waring. Eleven years later, the psychopathic Waring was himself murdered. Three years after Beauchamp's hanging, John Pope was appointed territorial governor of Arkansas. John F. Lowe had been shot and intimated that it was due to his refusal “to give the testimony desired”. Patrick Henry Darby moved from Frankfort to Brandenburg, the Ohio River town in which he falsely claimed to have met Beauchamp. Amos Kendall campaigned furiously for Andrew Jackson in the 1828 presidential election and was instrumental in winning Kentucky for Old Hickory. Thomas Beauchamp was reappointed Simpson County justice of the peace in 1828 and in 1831 was elected sheriff. Eliza Sharp never remarried. After the death of the Beauchamps, Dr. Leander Sharp devoted himself to the exoneration of his brother: writing the Vindication, discouraging authors from dramatizing the Kentucky Tragedy, protesting newspapers' depictions of his brother. Anna and Jereboam's grave lies on a hill just off Taylorsville Road. Solomon and Eliza lie in Frankfort Cemetery, where their children had their remains moved in the 1850s.
