JACOB BEAL - DIED JULY 19, 1855/ AGED 57 YEARS, 4 MONTHS, 9 DAYS - IS BURIED IN OLD UNION CHRISTIAN CEMETERY - BLAIR TOWNSHIP - CLAY COUNTY, ILLINOIS. HE IS BURIED NEXT TO SARAH BEAL, WHOSE INFORMATION YOU ALREADY HAVE. JACOB MAY HAVE DIED DURING THE CHORLEA EPIDEMIC THAT HIT THE COUNTY THAT YEAR. NEAR HIS BURIAL SITE IS THAT OF NORFLET H. SMITH, WHO I BELIEVE IS A RELATIVE, DIED JULY 29, 1855.

I GOT THIS INFORMATION FROM A BOOK WRITTEN BY JOHN TANNER, "CLAY COUNTY, ILLINOIS CEMETERIES". THERE ARE SEVERAL OTHER BEALS BURIED HERE AND I WOULD BE HAPPY TO SUPPLY THEIR NAMES IF YOU WOULD LIKE..
