John Artley Beeber
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 6, 1845
Lycoming County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Mar. 21, 1912

He was born April 6, 1845, in Muncy Township, Lycoming County, the son of Teter Dimner & Mary Jane (Artley) Beeber. He was a student at Pennsylvania (Gettysburg) College when, on June 16, 1863, he enlisted with an emergency regiment after that white-bearded fellow named Lee suddenly showed up in Pennsylvania with 70,000 of his party-crazy friends. Johnny Boy mustered into state service June 19 in Harrisburg as a private with Co. A, 26th Pennsylvania Militia, a unit that tried confronting a Confederate force a few days before the all-grown-up battle of Gettysburg. Some wise 26th Pennsylvania Militia guy shouted, "OMG! Those Rebels are using real damn bullets!" and the 26th Pennsylvania turned tail and ran like the inept toy soldiers they were. Otherwise, they all would have been shot or captured. John mustered out July 30, 1863, and went back to his school books on the road to becoming a lawyer.

He married Alice Amanda Clapp June 21, 1870, in Williamsport, Lycoming County, and fathered Mary Jane (b. @1871) and William Parson (b. 1873). Johnny died March 21, 1912, which is what is stated (minus the month and day) in his organizational pension index record. John married Jesse Elizabeth Dubois in 1904, and they are in the 1910 census living in Lycoming County.
