BEEBE—At his residence at Farmington Hill, PA. June 18, 1885, Morgan Seeley Beebe, aged 31 years.
The deceased had been sick between seven and eight weeks with fever, which terminated in inflammation of the bowels. At first his recovery was confidently expected by his friends and relatives, but towards the last all hope ceased and the end was expected.
Morgan always lived, since a boy, in the town of Farmington and was well known and universally respected. He possessed rare qualities of good citizenship; he was quiet, ambitious but never trespassed on the rights of others, and he belonged to that small class of individuals against whom none had anything to say. And it might be safely said that none in that community had more friends or would be more missed.
The funeral services were held at the Farmington Presbyterian Church on Friday, the 10th instant, at 3 p.m.; and were attended by a large concourse of people. Rev. C. B. Gillette was assisted in the service by Revs. Beqna and Merrick, of Tioga. The sorrow at the funeral was universal, and the whole community feels that they have sustained a loss.
The deceased leaves a father and mother and one sister and a wife and one child, who share the sympathy of his many friends. He is gone but not forgotten.
