W. F. BEACH was born in Louden county, Virginia, December 23rd, 1850. He came with his parents to Monroe county in 1857. Ten years later the family removed to Howard county, where Mr. Beach has since made his home. He was married to Miss LORETTA MARKLAND, December 8th, 1872. Their union was blessed by five children, 2 boys and 3 girls. Mrs. Beach died one year ago. Mr. Beach has been road overseer of the Armstrong district for the past twelve years, and the excellent condition of the roads at the present time attest the fact that no better man could be secured for the place. Mr. Beach has been director of the Armstrong public school for 10 years and has ever manifested deep interest in the welfare of the school. He is now president of the school board. Mr. Beach owns a well improved farm of 179 acres one mile south-east of Armstrong, which property he has accumulated by the sweat of his own brow. Mr. Beach is a member of the Methodist church, the A.O.U.W. Lodge and a good citizen.
