Note: The exact burial plot for William G Beck and his wife Margaret Ramsay Beck is not recorded. Lot 3 by what is now the public grounds section of Old Fairfield Cemetery has a Beck family monument (now toppled due to vandalism) for four of the Beck children: Willie, Mollie, Richard, and Kate. It is likely that WGB and MRB are also on this lot, but without a headstone for them nor specific burial records it cannot be stated for certain that they were also buried on that same lot.
