Bertha J. Bean was born in Virginia, A.D. 1821, was united in marriage to Benjamin L. Bean, February 11, 1848. As the result of this union, three children came into the home. The two elder died earlier in life and then followed the father, on May 24, 1878, after they came to Kansas. Here with her remaining son, D. E. Bean, she has resided ever since. She lived a quiet, peaceable and industrious life until death claimed her as his trophy until the resurrection of the dead. She was a member of the Baptist church and claimed a fellowship in that church. For many months she had complained of a pain in her eye and head. She died of typho-malarial fever, August 9th 1888. The funeral was conducted in the M. E. church, at Little River, Rev. J.A. H. Wilson officiating. The prayers and sympathy of the community are extended to her only child and son who remains to mourn the sad loss of a mother.
