Obituary from the Richmond Herald:
PROMINENT CITIZEN OF RICHMOND PASSED AWAY MONDAY MORNING
Was Active in Civic and Fraternal Life-Was Highly Esteemed
The death, Monday morning, of Herbert C. Beatty, after nearly three weeks illness of typhoid fever, saddened the whole community, altho for some days there was small hopes for his recovery, he having taxed his strength to the utmost as chairman of the Civic league for this district in the recent campaign.
Herbert C. Beatty was born in Richmond, March 14, 1876, the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Alonzo B. Beatty, Sr., and nearly the whole of his life was lived here. After leaving school he clerked in the Fanning & Leach store for a number of years, and April 15, 1898, he listed in Co. K 34th Volunteer Infantry, at Island Lake, serving his country with honor, during the Spanish war.
He married Miss Mayme Taylor, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Taylor, of Memphis, August 2, 1900, and she, with their six daughters servive him, they are Adelle, Christine, Mary, Amy, Helen and Norine Beatty. He is also survived by his father, three brothers and one sister, Frank S. Beatty, and Harold Beatt, of Detroit, A. B. Beatty, Jr., and Mrs. Edward W. Priestap, of this place. All have the sympathy of the whole community in their bereavement.
Always active in fraternal and political work he was a member of Richmond lodge. F. & A. M. 187, a member of Richmond I. O. O. F. 469 and the local Chapter of the Eastern Star, and of Detroit Camp No. 10 of Spanish War veterans.
Of all the tributes paid to his memory none can so impress the people of his home county as that he gave his life in the struggle for the enforcement of law and order.
Amid the factional struggles of politics he yet added constantly to his long list of friends, who, besides his army comrades deeply mourn his untimely passing. He was a man with wide interest and influence and equally energetic in the business life of this place, carrying on the Beatty Marble & Granite Co. Withal he was never too busy to do a favor or assist a friend. He will long be missed.
The funeral services were held from the home Wednesday at 2 p.m. under the auspices of the Richmond Lodge of Masons. Rev. Coman was the officiating clergyman. The business places of this village were closed during the hour of the service.
