|Death: ||Nov. 2, 1879|
Aged 38 yrs. Husband of Mary K. Beamer. Father of Carrie (d.y.), Blanche and Margaret Beamer.
1st Sgt, Co. F 49, Pa Infantry.
Blair County Treasurer in 1876.
From the proceedings of Colonel William G. Murray Post No. 89, Grand Army of the Republic, meeting held November 11, 1879:
"Isaac F. Beamer was a true, faithful and patriotic soldier, having enlisted as a private in Company F of the Forty-ninth regiment of Pennsylvania volunteers in August, 1861, and served his flag devotedly and zealously until the close of the war; he was a gentleman with whom all delighted to associate. As the Treasurer of Blair county he exhibited traits of sterling integrity and honesty, and conscienciously discharged the duties of his trust; he was affable and kind - generous even to a fault; affectionate in his disposition and a friend to every one. He was highly respected and very useful in his association with this post, and as its first commander rendered much needed and efficient aid; in its early organization he was the leading spirit and to his energy and unceasing persistency this post is greatly indebted for its existence. We sincerely sympathize with his bereaved widow and her two interesting children in their sorrow, and extend to them a soldier's hand of fellowship, with the assurance of our willingness to continue to them a soldier's friendship and a soldier's aid."
