    Beelar - Mrs. Eva Beelar, wife of Henry Beelar, of York, died at her home on Friday, Dec 17th, at the age of 23 years. The deceased was born at Hayton, Calument Co., Wisconsin, 18 Dec 1863, to parents Jacob & Cordelia (Martindale) Demouth.

    She was the oldest daughter of Mr. & Mr.s Jacob DeMouth, of Weston. About a year after her marriage she took up her residence in Neillsville, where she added many of her list of friends. She was naturally very stong and active, the very picture of health until within a year or two. For many months and since her removal back to York, she has been an invalid. Had it not been for her strong constitution and her resolute will, she would have been carried to the grave much sooner. A bright little daughter, less than two years old, is left behind, almost too young to miss a mother's love. The funeral was attended from the Hyslip school house, on Sabbath morning last, by a very large number of people. Rev. W. T. Hendren preached a brief discourse, allowing much of his time to be given to prayer and praise.

    In Response To: Re: Obit: Bealer, Henry (died 1925) (Dianne Stevens)

    Della was raised with the help of Caroline Bealer Christie. You can read in her obituary on this site how she was like a mother to Della (Mrs. Geo Iffland) and her nephew Thomas F. Burge, the son of her sister Almira Bealer Burge. Almira's husband died when Thomas was an infant, similar to Henry's wife Eva dying when Della was an infant.
