The Bellamy Brothers Ranch
The Bellamy Brother Ranch started with the brothers Great-Grandfather. Abraham Milton Bellamy was born in Horry County, SC. Shortly after his marriage to Susanna Dewitt Vereen, he enlisted in the Confederate Army and served as a member of Chickamauga and Carolina Infantry. He was wounded at the Battle of Chickamauga and later captured in Atlanta. He was paroled from Camp Douglas, IL in 1865.
After the war between the states ended, Abraham and Susanna moved to Florida and settled near the present day community ranch, in Darby, Florida; just north of Tampa.
Today the 150 acre homestead is a working ranch, owned and operated by the Bellamy Family. The livestock consists of brangus, angus, and crossbred cattle and quarter horses. A large variety of citrus fruits grow there as well, such as oranges, kumquats,
and grapefruits. The land is lush green, with numerous oaks, holly's, and crepe myrtles. Three generations currently live on the ranch in four homes, headed by Frances Bellamy and her sons, Howard and David. They also lease a nearby 2500 acre ranch, which is a calf-cow operation.
