Family History Plaque beside urns:
"The Clan MacBean came to North America from Scotland in February 1652. John Bean (1634-1718) had been captured by Oliver Cromwell’s forces at the Battle of Worcester, and was shipped to Boston, Massachusetts, as an indentured servant. His name originally was John MacBean, but the ship’s clerk shortened it. Eventually, John Bean purchased his freedom and prospered in New Hampshire.
Around 1920, his descendant, Alvin Clark Bean (1913-1968) came to California from Minnesota and settled down in Rio Linda. He married Elinor Edith Mispley (1914-1977), a California native, and the two of them took up poultry ranching in Rio Linda and cattle ranching in Fiddletown.
The Beans were a strong, independent family that lived life to the fullest, and many of their descendants still live in California."
