The wife of William Henry Beach, my cousin
Hamburg Reporter 30 Apr 1915. Death has again invaded the home circle, removing an old pioneer of Hamburg, a loving wife, mother, and a woman of high ideals and christian character. While death came as a shock, it had been expected. With the demise of Mrs W.H. Beach all Hamburg is in sorrow. Mrs Beach moved to Hamburg with her family in 1867, and this was the family home until some five years ago when, with her husband, they moved to St. Louis, making their home with two daughters, of that place. Last June the children all gathered at St Louis for a reunion, and at that time it was thought her life could not last long at best. This is the first death in the family in fifty-four years, a remarkable record in many ways. Mrs. Beach was born in Ontario, Canada, April 11, 1830, and died in St Louis Tuesday, April 20, having reached the advanced age of 85 years and 9 days. She was married to William H. Beach in Ogdensburg, NY June 11, 1847. To this union five children were born: Albert H. of Los Angeles, J.P. of Omaha, Mrs B.L. Slack, Mrs J.B. Christian of St Louis and Mrs C.W. Davey of this place. The remains arrived Thursday morning, and a short service was conducted at the home, and interment was made in the Hamburg cemetery.
