From ROMAN CITIZEN newspaper, Rome, Oneida County, New York, Friday, October 25, 1867

BEACH - The citizens of Rome, NY, were greatly shocked on Friday last, (October 18, 1867) to learn that Mrs. BEACH, the wife of B. J. Beach, Esq., was no more.  She had been suffering  for some weeks with typhoid fever, but it was hoped that her vigorous constitution would enable her to overcome the disease, and that she would be spared these many years, to be a comfort to her family and friends.  But such was not to be the case, and on Friday, at about 7 P.M., she quietly passed away.
     The deceased was universally beloved and respected.  Her unaffected kindness and gentleness, won all hearts that came within the circle of her influence, and in her early death, a bereaved and stricken husband, a now motherless child, and the community generally, have suffered an irreparable loss.
     Mrs. Beach was for a number of years engaged with her sister, Miss Mary Whittemore, in the work of female education in Rome, Schenectady and Clinton, and her superior scholarship and refined taste placed her in an advanced position among American teachers.  She has left many pupils in this and other counties who recall with friendship and gratitude the memory of one so deservedly dear.
     The funeral services took place at the family residence on Sunday last, (October 20, 1867) where a large concourse of citizens gathered to pay their last tribute of respect to the departed one.  The services were conducted by the Rev. W. E. Knox.  (RCOct25/1867)
