After spending some time at Hillsdale College, Mr. Beeson moved to Three Oaks, Berrien Co., MI, and established himself as a druggist on the main street of that town. He also engaged in farming. He married in 1885 Ella J. James of Calvin Township, daughter of Catherine (McFaren/Farren)James Girt and Edward K. James. He and Ella had three children, Paul, Lois, and Helen.
