Birth: Dec. 27, 1817
Ohio, USA
Death: May 18, 1885
Illinois, USA

Wife of Charles Beer 1815-1900

Daughter of Elizabeth Reed

Nancy and Charles were married April 30, 1840 in Fulton co., Illinois (Illinois Marriage Index)

Fairview, Ill., May 19, 1885

Died, yesterday, Mrs. Nancy Beer, wife of Mr. Charles Beer, aged about 65 years. Yesterday morning Mrs. Beer was as well as usual and went into the garden to plant some seeds. About 11:30 o'clock she was found lying on her face, with the hoe partially under her, having fallen forward, no doubt, while stooping to plant some seeds. Life was extinct, or only a slight pulsation felt by those who carried her into the house. She undoubtedly died from apoplexy. In Mrs. Beer's death is left a vacancy that cannot be filled. Perhaps no woman in the neighborhood had more friends. She was loved and respected by all. The large attendance at her funeral today testified to the many friends who mourn her loss. Mr. Beer had the sympathy of this community in his sad bereavement. (Fulton County Ledger, May 21, 1885
