Birth: Jun. 6, 1895
Republic County
Kansas, USA
Death: Sep. 29, 1918, France

Belleville Telescope, Thursday October 17, 1918

Our community is again saddened by the news arriving of the death of one of our beloved soldier boys, Earl Beames, who died "somewhere in France", September 29, 1918, of pneumonia.

Earl was born June 6, 1895, and always resided with his mother on her farm about five miles northeast of Belleville. He graduated from the Belleville high school in the spring of 1916 and taught two terms of school in the county southeast of Cuba.

On June 27th of this year, he, with about 76 other Republic county boys were sent to Camp Funston, later being transferred to Camp Dodge and brigaded with Company-B, 313 Ammunition Train and in August sailed for France with the 88th Division.

Earl was one of Republic county's finest young men and an unusually upright, moral boy, and although he hated to leave his mother, yet felt that he should be one of the many aiding in this great struggle for humanities sake. He was naturally of a cheerful disposition and those who talked with him in Belleville the morning he left noticed this kindness and cheerfulness with which he departed, and although he fully realized the task ahead of him, yet he remarked that he wished to be as cheerful as possible and receive as much real good from it as he could.

Of the immediate family, he leaves to mourn his death a mother, Mrs. Edna Beames and two brothers, Lester Beames and Harry Keene, also many other relatives and a host of friends who extend their deepest sympathy to this family in their hour of trouble.
