59Y, 19D (GAR)
Joseph Beach was born in Madison County, Ohio, Oct. 12, 1843, and died at his home south of Havensville Nov. 1, 1902, age 59 years and 19 days.
At the youthful age of 9 years Joseph Beach came with his parents to Decatur County, Iowa, where they resided six years. In 1856 he removed with his parents to Pottawatomie County, Kansas where Mr. Beach lived until called to the blessed life above. He enlisted in the service of his country Feb. 29, 1864, In Co. L. 11th Kans. Cav., as a volunteer under the command of General Booth. He served 19 months and received an honorable discharge Sept. 26, 1865.
Joseph Beach was united in marriage with Miss Orlena Loughmiller, Jan. 16,1870. There were five childen born to them, three sons and two daughters: Mr. Frank Beach of Independence, Oklahoma, who is engaged in the grocery business, Mr. F.J. Beach who is a successful harness dealer in Havensville. Mr. Clarence Beach is engaged in farming on the home farm; Miss Aurelia Beach has but recently returned from Oklahoma where she had proved up on her fine claim near Okarchie, and Miss Cora who is still under the home roof. This splendid family of children pay loving attribute to their father in words that pen can scarely portray. Joseph Beach had been apparently in usual health previous to the night of his death but was worried and overanxious for his good wife who was at that time in a hospital in St. Joseph, MO. where she had only the day before undergone a painful operation. The absence of Mrs. Beach from home seems doubly sad as she cannot even know of her husband's demise for some time hence and sadder still that she could not minister to the dying needs of him who in life was so devoted to every want of the household. Mr. Beach was converted and united with the Methodist Episcopal church at Pleasant Ridge in 1869 and has always been a consistent Christian and a warm supporter of the church. Almost total deafness has the past few years deprived Mr. Beach of hearing the word preached but faithful to his religious vows he kept up the family altar and the reading of the dear book he loved so well. The rising generation have in him a noble example of Christian citizenship, his life one object lesson of frugality and thrift. One need but go about over his splendid farm to note with what care everything is directed and guarded. The fine evergreen groves on either side the road will stand as a monument to his toiling hands long after his body shall have crumbled to mother dust.
On Monday afternoon Nov. 3, a large cortege followed the remains to Bucks Grove where the funeral was preached by Rev. I.L. Oakes from I. Thess. 4:13, 18. The body was laid to rest in the beautiful cemetery by the church. The attendance was one of the largest ever seen at Bucks Grove.
