Birth: Oct. 27, 1887
Hamilton County
Nebraska, USA
Death: Feb. 27, 1960

Furman was named for his grandfather, Furman Housel, and the John was from his grandfather John Beat. Furman and Mabelle(Mabel) both worked for Chase Gardens Nursery for many years and Furman also worked as a groundsman for the University of Oregon, Eugene. Furman died of Stomache Cancer and it is believed that he carried the Brac 1 cancer gene which was inherited by my father, Floyd beat and Furman's daughter, Sara Elizabeth(Beth) Beat McLennan. The gene has been carried forward into several generations and it is not known how many of the Beat's carry this gene. If you read this and want more information contact me.
Furman and Mabel had 5 children, Esther Beat Howland, Floyd Orville Beat, James Beat, Sara Elizabeth Beat, and Dale Furman Beat.
