William C Beaton
Birth: 1883
Death: Sep. 18, 1889

Six-year-old Willie and his two brothers died in a tragic fire which was, in 1889, the worst tragedy to befall Pasadena, California.

Newspaper accounts of the fire can be found at:

Los Angeles Times September 23, 1889 - report of the funeral
"Nearly every seat in the church was taken, and a large number of Scotch residents, mostly friends of the deceased, were present. The class of which the unfortunate members were members in the Sabbath-school were in attendance. Rev. D. D. Hill said "There is something pathetic about this family. Johnny was a manly fellow, and had a little more perserverance than most lads of his age. It was Johnny here, there and everywhere. He carried the washing to and from the house for his mother. Willie was a quiet child, who seldom spoke unless he was spoken to. The baby, who would have been 3 years old in January, could sing all the Sunday-school hymns. Little Mary's heroic acts in trying to save her brothers and her pluck are marvelous and worth mention."
