Individual Note:
     Is Lydia A. Beach also "Agnes Marshall", who is burried in Benjamin F. Beach's
cemetery lot? Page 7 of cemetery records. (Joan Nix)

Note, from Tom Green: I'm presuming that Lydia married a "Neasley", and had a son,
Clarence R. Neasley, because the 1900 Linn Co. Iowa Census for
Lydia's father, Benjamin F. Beach, shows a "grandson, Clarence
R. Neasley", and Lydia is the "most likely fit", to be the mother.

     Obit of John Edward Beach
Mount Vernon Hawkeye Paper, 19 Dec 1929

Oil Truck Skids On Curves Just West of Mount Vernon
Turns Completely Over In The Ditch on North Side of Road Crushing Him in the Cab.

      "J.E. Beach was instantly killed about 9:00 o'clock wednesday morning when his oil truck skidded on the curve west of the J.G. Stockton place on the Lincoln Highway just beyond the overhead bridge west of town and turned over in the ditch crushing him in the cab.
      Two of Thos. Armstrong's boys Austin and Merwyn Armstrong, comming this way passed Mr. Beach on the curve, as the truck was beginning to skid and were the first ones to reach the wrecked truck. Seward Merritt and Alva Hunter in the Merritt wrecker were going to the Marley Clark hill where two cars were in the ditch and were only a short distance behind the oil truck. They hooked the wrecker onto the truck and raised it off of Mr. Beach as quickly as possible, but life had been crushed out of him.
      The news of this untimely tragedy was a distinct shock to "Ed's many friends in Mount Venon and vicinity. For years he had operated a tank truck here and nearly everyone knew and respected him. The family has the sympathy ofthe entire community.
      John Edward Beach, son of Mr. and Mrs. D.T. Beach, was born in Fredericktown, Ohio on May 8, 1877. He was united in marriage to Allie Horn, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.M. Horn, on February 6, 1900. For two years, they lived on a farm north of Marion. Later Mr. Beach was employed by a lumber firm in Marion. They have made their home in Mount Vernon for twenty years. Mr. Beach operated the Standard Oil tank wagon for 18 years. For the last year and half he has operated the Texaco tank wagon. He is survived by his parents, his wife, five children; Earl, near Springville, Mrs. Clarence Bohlander of Clinton, Rubye, Harold and Dorothy, who are at home.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday at 2:30 from the Presbyterian church in charge of Dr. H. C. Culver.
