Luther Lee Beal
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 29, 1892
Knox County
Tennessee, USA
Death: May 29, 1964
Greene County
Missouri, USA

Luther was an adopted son of Edward and Mary, according to the 1910 census. He is not listed in the 1900 census, so he must have been adopted between age eight and eighteen.

In 1920 Luther is listed as a fruit farmer. I found a source that stated his father Edward enjoyed cultivating strawberries. Luther, as an Orchardman, must have been his man in charge.

Luther and his comrades were the only American Aero squadron awarded the "Fourragere" decoration by the General Commander in Chief of the French Army for their service in Flanders, France, during World War I, October 22, 1916. See the document at right.

April 14, 2016, new information from FAG contributor Sylvia-- On Luther's Social Security application his birth parents are listed as John and Lena Alsup Solomon. Luther was born in Knox County, TN.

Luther died at age 72 at Mercy Villa Nursing Home, Springfield, MO from Cerebral Hemmorhage. RS Beal of Independence, MO is the informant on his MO Death certificate. It also states he was born in New Market, TN which is in Jefferson County, TN, conflicting with his SS application.
