s/o George P. Bevis / Julia Ann Williams

Charles Bevis born in Indiana June 12, 1845 and died of Brights disease at Stettler, Alberta, Canada 12 Jul 1908. He was a pioneer of Lincoln County, having settled here in 1880, where he resided until a few years ago when he went to Alberta, Canada where he passed away. He was always a well respected citizen and was ever ready to give a helping hand and a kind word for everybody he met. He leaves one sister, Mrs. F. M. Johnson of Mold, and five brothers, Joseph and Henry of Mondovi, Jasper, Samuel and John of Oregon. Mr. Bevis always led a moral life and the news of his death was a shock to the community. He had been in Alberta, Canada working his claim when he became ill and died. His half-brother, Henry Morgan Shook, was with him and the Canadian government gave Charles’ claim to Henry. Henry brought his remains to the Frans Cemetery and he was laid to rest beside his mother. The respect was shown him by all the old settlers who paid their tribute to the remains. ref: Davenport Tribune 30 Jul 1908 Bio by BluMoKitty
