Harvey occupation:

Taken from the Iowa State Reporter (Waterloo, Iowa) June 23, 1887: "There was a very quiet wedding at the home of Rev. Jesse Beal last Thursday evening, June 16, 1887. Their oldest son, Harvey M. and Miss Mary E. Kistner were the contracting parties. The ceremony was performed by Rev. S. H. Bashor. By the request of Mrs. Beal, who is in very poor health, they were married at the Beal residence, instead of at the home of the bride as first intended. Only the immediate friends of the bride and groom were present." Mrs. Jesse Beal had severe asthma.

  1.   Bob, Sr. and I sort of grew up together as they lived in this area until 1941, I think, when they went west for the employment boom of WW-II. Uncle Jesse had farmed in this area but did not like farming and that was his chance for a big change. Our families were always together for special occasions etc. Bob was only 3 years younger than me. I know Robert, Jr. but not real well. He came onto the scene after they moved west and I saw him there only. "per email from Stanley Beal 24 March 2010"
  2.   Per an email from Stanley Beal of Round Lake, MN dated 30 July 2010: Your past interest in the tombstones of family brings back this memory of when my Grandfather Harvey left us. I was 13. That was still THE GREAT DEPRESSION. The Appleton area, where Aunt Edith and Uncle Fred lived, was experiencing a bit of THE DUST BOWL and life was uncertain there while things were a bit better here in the heavier soil. The family felt my Dad and Uncle Jesse were the most permanently located at the time so he was buried here. I don't know if you want things like this in your records or not. Uncle Jesse's family moved to Washington during WW-II. I was born north of town and am still here. My mother was born here and my Granddad came at one year of age and never left. My Maternal Great Grandfather, Welsh, Homesteaded here after his Discharge from THE CIVIL WAR.
