Collin County

Death: Aug. 30, 1964

This is my Uncle Beale. He never married; was a veteran of WWII. His life was tormented, but he tried his best, and was a good uncle. He is buried next to my grandparents, his parents, "Sterling" Francis and George Ella Smith Tarpley. Beale was born in Frisco, Collin County, Texas. He has a younger brother, Frank, who is buried next to his wife, Verna, in Restland Cemetery in Dallas; and an older sister, Everal (my mother), who is buried, next to my dad (Wesley Miers) ,in Rose Hills Memorial Park in Whittier, CA.

This family moved to Waco about 1913 and remained there until the children were grown and leading their various lives.

Sterling was the son of Sterling Lake Tarpley and Mary Frances (Frank) Shrader. For more on this family, please read the biographies of Sterling Francis Tarpley and George Ella Smith Tarpley at this same cemetery.

If anyone reading this has a Tarpley or Miers family in your ancestry, please contact me. Perhaps we can share information.
