The Weekly Butte Record, (Chico, Calif.), Saturday, April 5, 1879, pg 1 col 6: Funeral Obsequies. The funeral of Rev. J.O. Beardslee took place from the Presbyterian Church yesterday afternoon. The universal esteem in which he was held by the community, drew together an immense concourse to pay the last tribute of respect. The altar and organ gallery were tastefully decorated with flowers, a beautiful tribute to him, who had passed so many years mid the tropical luxuriance of the West Indies. Rev. Mr. Ellis pronounced the funeral sermon, the Apollo Quartette, assisted by Miss Hamilton, as organist, rendered suitable music. The pall bearers were a delegation from the Blue-Ribbon Brigade, of which the deceased was a prominent member. The funeral cortege was a large one, many persons being present from the country. The exercises at the grave were of an unusually impressive character, and amid the sobs of weeping relatives, the sorrow of sympathizing friends, and the tearful adieu of the falling rain, the remains of this Christian gentleman and scholar were laid quietly to rest in “God’s acre,” to await the coming of, what he devoted his life to the teaching, a glorious resurrection. The bereaved family have the heart-felt sympathy of the community in this their great affliction.
