MR BEN BEACH DEAD
His Death Occurred Five Weeks After That of His Mother, Who Was Burned to Death
News reached this city yesterday of the death of Mr Ben Beach, which occurred Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock, at his home at Kingsboro, Georgia, 20 miles north of Columbus. His death was caused by heart failure. He had been in ill health for a long time, but at the same time his death was unexpected.
Mr Beach was 34 years of age and was unmarried. It was a sad coincidence that his death occurred just 5 weeks after that of his aged mother, Mrs J C Beach, who in endeavoring to save the life of her daughter, Miss Sallie Beach, whose clothing had ignited, received such severe burns that she died in a day or two from her injuries. Mr Beach was employed for ten years on the Central of Georgia Railway, and had many friends, especially among the railroad men, who were saddened to hear of his death.
Besides the aged father, Mr J C Beach, he is survived by the following sisters and brothers Mrs A C Hightower, of Cataula, Mrs G R Hughes, of Dallas, Texas; Mrs Ida Lamar of Hi[?] Texas; Mrs Eva Kennedy [?] of Crowley, [?]; Miss Sallie Beach of Kingsboro; Miss Fannie May Beach of Columbus; Mr T R Beach of Atlanta, and Mr J T Beach of Kingsboro.
The funeral occurred at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon. The interment took place at Matthew's Chapel, in Talbot county, at the family burying ground where his other was laid to rest a few weeks ago.
