Daniel Levi Bean
Came to Nevada from his Native Kentucky in the early 1860s to work in the local mines he later became one of Local Blacksmith's for the city of Gold Hill NV. And plied his trade until his death by pneumonia on Nov. 18th 1884
We was also a member in good standing of the local Masonic lodge in Gold Hill. They Helped his widow to pay for his grave stone. He is buried with his 3 infant children who all died before him, His Wife Ella sold off his blacksmith shop in 1885 and moved back to Kentucky, What happen to her is unknown,It is hoped she had a good life back in Kentucky.

The attached photo of Daniel working at his trade is Courtesy of The Wild West Museum on C Street in Virginia City NV. Who were kind enough to let me copy it for find a grave. The Back of the Photo reads in old ink "The Bean Blacksmith barn on D st. Virgina City NV."

The Photo of his vandalised grave stone was taken in Sept. 2001 It is hoped by this writer that the ghost of Daniel and his 3 children haunts the dreams of the Dastards who get a sick joy out of smashing grave stones.
The other two photos show what the Gold Hill City NV Cemetery looks like today.
