Birth: unknown
Death: Nov. 13, 1942, At Sea

Son of Abram Stryker Beaumont who resided in New Hope, Pennsylvania.

William served as a Seaman First Class, U.S.S. Juneau (CL-52), U.S. Navy during World War II.

He resided in Bucks County, Pennsylvania prior to the war.

William was declared "Missing In Action" in the Naval Battle of Guadalcanal during the war.

The Juneau, in the early morning hours in near pitch darkness, was first struck on the port side by a torpedo causing a severe list. The Juneau, once dawn broke, then tried to return to Espiritu Santo for repairs along with the battle damaged U.S.S. Helena and U.S.S. San Francisco, when the Juneau was again hit by a torpedo from Japanese I-26 causing her to sink.

He was awarded the Purple Heart.

In memory of all those gallant men of the USS Juneau (CL-52) who made the ultimate sacrifice to win the Battle of Guadalcanal and will be "forever on station" with their ship. God bless you for fighting for free men everywhere.
