I, too, have a Peter BEACH in my family tree who supposedly was married to my aunt Maggie.
Just beginning to research this part of my family.
Supposedly, my grandmother Pearl MCDORMAN b. 1884 lived with a Peter BEACH
from the Allen County, OH area.
Sounds like a scandal to me. A bit confused about his story.

The Life and Times of Thomas Hicks (by Rhett Johnson) (corrections in Parenthises)
I am writing about my great Grandfather Thomas Hicks. The following is an account of the great life that he lived.
Thomas Hicks, my great grandpa, was born on December 20, 1899 in Akley, (Akeley) Minnesota. (St. Croix Falls, Polk Co. WI) His parents were Frances (Francis) and Isabelle Hicks. Tom had eight brothers and sisters, two who died in their twenties. Tom's father Frank was a logger and a trapper. While Tom lived in Akley, he worked at a logging mill. When Tom was about twenty- four years old, he married a woman by the name of Edith Beach. On March 14, 1925, Tom and Edith had their first child, Yvonne; and a little over a year and a half later on November 25, 1926, they had their second child, Violet, my grandmother. In 1931 Tom went to Federal Dam, Minnesota, to find a place to live and to start a new job as a mechanic. During this time Edith became ill and was hospitalized at Ah-Gwag-Ching for eighteen months with tuberculosis in her hip. Violet and Yvonne stayed with their Grandma Beach in Akley.
After Edith was better, Edith, Yvonne and Violet moved to Federal Dam to join Tom. They lived there only about half a year, when Tom decided to move the family to Remer. The year was 1932, and jobs were scarce due to the depression. In Remer, Tom was fortunate and got a job as the Remer school mechanic and school bus driver. In 1935 the family moved to a different house in Remer, on Main Street across from the Soo Line depot. There shortly after moving, Tom and Edith had their third and final child, Thomas Jr.
At his new home, Tom started a live bait business. He dug ponds behind his bait house to breed minnows. He went out to lakes, rivers and swamps such as the Boy River, and Town Line Lake to seine his own minnows, a job very few people in the area did. Most other bait dealers bought there minnows from a company. The night before fish season opener Tom and Edith would stay up all night selling bait, pop, coffee and even Edith's caramel rolls to fisherman wanting to get an early start.
One day Tom was seining minnows at a gravel pit and came across minnows that he had never seen before. He sent a sample to the Minnesota Extension Service and one to the DNR. He found out that they were Golden Chubs. Because they were so rare, nobody had ever seen one before. He asked the DNR if he could get a patent on then so he could breed them and sell them without other people selling them. He took a couple back to his ponds to breed them. The DNR told him that he couldn't get a patent on them because patents couldn't be issued on animals. This rare minnow that Tom found could stay alive much longer than any other minnow. Tom wanted to make some money off of these minnows, so he decided to sell some of them to hatcheries. He got about $100 per gallon of Golden Chubs.
Tom was also an avid trapper. He trapped wolves, mink, beaver, muskrat, and weasels but he was known mostly for trapping wolves. The state put bounties on wolves because they were known for eating cattle and other farm animals. In 1938 he was the champion wolf hunter of Cass County, bagging ten full-grown wolves and six cubs, collecting $186 from the state in bounties.
Yvonne died on Christmas Day in 1944 at Ah-Gwah-Ching from tuberculosis and juvenile diabetes. Tom went on with his minnow business until the day he died on May 19, 1966. He died while he was out seining minnows, something that he truly loved to do. His wife died two years later in 1968. Tom's son, Tom Jr., continued the bait business for a few years after Tom Sr.'s death, but he eventually moved on with his own life.

Thomas 30 son (mechanic, auto garage)
Edith 28 dau-in-law
Yvonne D. 5 granddaughter
Violet E. 3 4/12 granddaughter
Violet (Hicks) Green remembers that in the year her father was constable in Remer, a colored person rode in on the train, and asked if he could spend the night in jail, as he had no place to go, and no money. I guess Constable Tom Hicks said "yes", and offered him the cot in the jail to sleep on, but in seeing the cot, and it's condition,the guest said he'd rough it out in the chair for the night After that, Constable Tom requested of the town a new mattress. Mrs. Constable, Edith Hicks, fixed the man some grub and sent it to the guest.
