MAJOR BEEBE BURIED HERE
Interment Took Place This Afternoon -
Sketch of His Life
The remains of Major Beebe arrived in Carthage on this afternoon's Missouri Pacific train from Kansas City accompanied by members of the family and other relatives. The following pallbearers, made up of old comrades of the deceased, were at the depot: D.D. Kerr, T.B. Tuttle, G.C. Howenstein, A.H. Caffee, Dr. Coe and Major Moore. The remains were conveyed to Knell's undertaking rooms, where the G.A.R. and other orders of which Major Beebe was a member, were in waiting. A procession was formed to Park Cemetery and at the grave a brief service was conducted by the G.A.R., the regular funeral exercises having been held in Kansas City.
A Kansas City paper gives this sketch of the deceased's life:
"Major Beebe was 62 years of age. He moved from New Berlin, NY to Waverly, IA., at the time when Iowa was the extreme western outpost of agricultural pursuits, and while there he became an ardent supporter of Senator Allison, taking a prominent part in Mr. Allison's first senatorial campaign, which resulted in an enduring friendship throughout their lives.
"When the Civil War broke out Major Beebe enlisted in the Ninth Iowa Volunteers, and later became connected with the consolidated Thirty-fourth and Thirty-eighth Iowa Volunteers. He was promoted for gallant conduct in the battle of Pea Ridge and was in the battle of Shiloh siege of Vicksburg, capture of Fort Donaldson and many others. At the latter part of the war he was in brevet command of troops stationed at Houston and Brownsville, Texas to repel the threatened invasion of Maximilian. He was mustered out as lieutenant colonel after serving over four years. Major Beebe was a member of the Loyal Legion, Missouri division G.A.R. Stanton Post No. 16, Carthage, MO.; A.O.U.W. No. 47, Carthage, MO., and Knight Templar of Carthage commandery.
He leaves a wife, two sons and one daughter. Frank A. Beebe, post office inspector of Oklahoma City, O.T.; Marvin H. Beebe, engaged in business in Chicago; Mrs. L. D. Scott of Huntington, W. VA., who were all with him during his last moments.
Major Beebe was for years one of the best known of the older residents of Carthage. He came here soon after the war and was for years one of the leading men of the city, being an extensive property owner, a member of the council, and prominent in all the affairs of Carthage. For a number of years past he had resided in Kansas City. He was highly respected and esteemed by all.
