Sudden Death In Hotel
Calvin H. Beamer Fell Over Dead in Harrisburg Hotel.
Calvin H. Beamer, of Biglerville, died suddenly at the Arlington Hotel, on Market street, Harrisburg, on last Wednesday morning, aged 57 years.
He had gone the day before to Harrisburg with a car load of potatoes disposing of them but was compelled to remain over night in the city. He was apparently in his usual health Wednesday morning he was suddenly seized with heart disease and fell over dead on a settee in the main office of the hotel. He was born in 1851 on the old Beamer farm about four miles above Arendtsville, a son of Henry Beamer, deceased. He lived on the home farm all his life until last spring when he moved to Biglerville, engaging in shipping produce. He was familiarly known as Cal to everyone, had a genial disposition, meeting everyone with a smile and a kind word that made him many friends.
He was elected County Commissioner in 1895, serving his term with Geo. D. Basehoar and Wm. A. Sell, making friends all over the county. He was a Republican and always active in politics, and could be depended upon by his party to get out Menallen's vote and majority. At the last session of the Legislature he was doorkeeper at the Senate.
The funeral was held on Saturday morning in the Arendtsville Lutheran church, Rev. S. A. Diehl of Bendersville, conducting the services with interment in the Arendtsville cemetery.
He leaves a widow, two daughters and two sons, Mrs. Marine McDannell of Arendtsville, Minerva at home, Alvin and Wilson Beamer living on the old home place in Menallen township. Two sisters and one brother survive, Mrs. Reuben S. Wert of the Quaker Valley, Mrs. Jackson Miller and Noah Beamer of Arendtsville
