BeVier, Samuel A. (1855 – 7 OCT 1896)

Died, at Wichita, Kan., on Wednesday, Oct. 7th, 1896, of uremia and peritonitis, S. A. BeVier, and employee of the Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railroad.

The news of the death of Mr. BeVier was received her Friday and was a sudden and severe shock to his many friends of this vicinity.

S. A. BeVier was rather reticent, even with his friends, and for that reason very little is known as to his early life. In the early seventies he was located at Dorchester as assistant to the station agent of that place, and in 1877 came to this place (Colby, Clark Co., Wis.); he was here but a short time when he was installed as agent, which position he held until he resigned of his own free will in Jun 1880.

Dec. 5th, 1878, he was united in marriage with Miss Sarah J. Wilms; Dec. 21st, 1879, a daughter was born to them, Miss Nina, and just one week later the wife he loved so well, crossed the dark river. After the death of Mrs. BeVier he became dissatisfied and the following June tendered his resignation, which was reluctantly accepted by the company. After leaving here he went to Minnesota and accepted a position with the Winona and St. Peters road, and was located at Rochester, but finally entered the employ of the C., R. I. & P., became traveling auditor and one of their most trusted employees.

The remains were brought to this place, accompanied by H.A. Coomer of Topeka, Kan., a brother traveling auditor, of the same road. Upon their arrival here they were taken in charge by the Masonic fraternity, under whose auspice the funeral occurred Sunday afternoon. The funeral occurred at the M.E. Church, the services there being conducted by Rev. Rollo Braach of Marshfield, and the service at the cemetery was the beautiful and impressive ceremony of the Masonic fraternity.

There was a fine delegation of Masons from Marshfield, headed by E.A. Upham, Master of the Marshfield Lodge, who delivered the oration at the grave in a very impressive manner.

During the several years that Mr. BeVier was agent at this place he made many friends who deeply regret his sudden demise, and sincerely sympathize with the daughter who mourns the loss of a father who loved her dearly.
