David E. Beem
Cpt. Co. H 14th Ind. Vol. Inf.
Son of Levi Beem
Grandson of Daniel Beem.


Taken from the October 25, 1923 issue of the Gosport Reporter:

David E. Beem was born June 24, 1837 and died October 23, 1923 at the age of 86 years. He was born in Spencer and spent most of his life here. His grandparents entered the land upon which Spencer now stands and it is largely due to the fact that his grandfather, Richard Beem, donated 80 acres of land that Spencer is the county seat.

Mr. Beem attended DePauw University for a short time and graduated from Indiana University in 1860. He entered the army in 1861 and fought throughout the entire four years of the Civil War for the Union cause. He was discharged from the army with the rank of captian.

After returning from the army he practiced law for a time in Indianapolis then came to Spencer where he has been since.

He was amrried April 10, 1862 to Mahala Joslin, daughter of Amasa Joslin. The wife and three children, all of whom survive, are left to mourn their loss. There are also six grandchildren, four sisters and one brother still living. Three brothers and two sisters have gone on before.

Mr. Beem suffered a stroke of paralysis in June 1922, and while he regained the use of his voice it has never entirely recovered.

Another grand old man and beloved citizen has gone on leaving behind the memory of a useful and well-rounded life.

The funeral will be conducted by Rev. Breeden from the Methodist Chruch at 2 o'clock this afternoon.
