BEASLEY, William E.                                                                                     May 29, 1853 June 16, 1930

W E Beasley Died Monday Night

   Wm.  E.  Beasley was among the last of the original settlers of near Omaha was born in Alabama May 29, 1853 and came to Texas with his parents when a small boy: lived in Bowie county a few years and came on over and settled in this county; married Miss Georgia Smith in 1875 and brought up a family of five sons who survive him.

   S. I. and W. Z. Beasley of Omaha, O. C. and N. O. Beasley of Shreveport, La, and R. R. Beasley of El Paso, all of whom with their families were with him in the last days and hours of suffering.

   "Uncle Bill" as we all like to call him, was stricken with paralysis Thursday morning of last week, but rallied and seemed to improve until Monday when he took pneumonia, resulting in his death at 9:30 o'clock Monday Night, June 16, at the home of his son, W. Z. Beasley where he had made his home ever since losing his companion a few years since.

   Funeral services were conducted in the Methodist church Tuesday afternoon at 3 o'clock by Elder J. S. Caldwell, Rev. W. J. Brient and Rev. A. B. Moses, after which his remains were laid to rest in the Omaha cemetery with a fine floral expression showing he had numerous friends, besides the church could not hold all the people attending the funeral.  He was a member of the Methodist church and also a member of the Omaha Odd Fellow Lodge.

  In addition to what we have tried to do say and do personally we want to try and say our hearts are heavy with sorrow for the bereaved ones.  You'll all miss him, let's take comfort to know that he has gone where you can be with him again.

The above obituary was published in the June 18, 1930 issue of the OMAHA BREEZE in Omaha, Morris County, Texas on the front page.
