Tragic Death of Deaver Youth

It was a terrible tragedy that happened at Deaver this morning.
Carrol, the 7-year-old son of Mr. And Mrs. Maynard Bean, who live in Deaver, was shot in the head as he was standing watching his father cleaning a 32-caliber revolver. He was only six feet away from his father, who didn’t seem to see him. Somehow the weapon was discharged and the steel bullet struck the boy high on his forehead and came out the back of the skull just above the neck.
The accident happened at the family home at about 8:15, soon after all had eaten breakfast.
The parents brought their injured son to Powell for treatment at the Coulston clinic, but Dr. Coulston informs the Tribune that there was little he could do for the boy. He was bleeding internally as well as externally. He failed to regain consciousness and died 3 1/2 hours after the bullet hit him.
County Coroner Ray Easton has the body of the Bean boy at his undertaking rooms, where he awaits plans for the funeral and burial.

Body Of Carrol Bean Laid At Rest In Warren Cemetery

Following the funeral service held from the Powell Methodist church Sunday afternoon with the Reverend H. D. Wright officiating the body of little Carrol Wesley Bean, son of Mr. And Mrs. Maynard Bean was laid to rest in the family plot in the Warren, Mont., cemetery. Neighbors and other friends of the family followed the casket to its final resting place, expression of sympathy to Mr. And Mrs. Bean in the loss they sustain.
The little boy, seven and seven months old, died at the Coulston clinic in Powell Thursday, May 14, four hours after a cartridge from a revolver, which was being cleaned and put into condition in the family home, had accidentally fired and struck him.
Carrol Wesley Bean was born at Warren, Mont., October 14,1935, and died at Powell May 14, 1942.
Surviving are the parents Mr. And Mrs. Maynard Bean; five brothers, wen (* Owen), Richard, Tommie, Vernon, and Ernest, and the baby sister, Sharon. He is preceded in death by his oldest brother. Several uncles and aunts survive, and one uncle, Theodore Bean, an enlisted man in the United States Army, came from his station on the west coast, to be with the family at this time.
M.S. Bean, Sr., the child’s grandfather now deceased, came to Deaver in 1917, but in later years the family has been among the ranchers on the Warren, Mont., community, until Mr. And Mrs. M.S. Bean, Jr., returned to Deaver three years ago buying property here where they have since made their home.
