Re: Larry Dwayne Beebe - KIA Vietnam War

In Reply to: Larry Dwayne Beebe - KIA Vietnam War by Toni Linn of 920

I have found further information regarding Larry's parents and siblings, but nothing on his burial. I called the Fort Custer National Cemetery near Battlecreek, Michigan and Larry is not buried there. I'm guessing that maybe he's buried in a local cemetery in his hometown, but ... ???

I was able to find out that Larry's parents were Warren Beebe & Cora; Warren died in 2000 or 2001 (shortly after the comments were posted on the online memorial wall). I also have the names of his siblings and his father's siblings/mother. It appears that Larry was married and the father of at least two children when he went to war and died in battle.

I had also left a message for the pastor of the Baptist church in Ceresco and he returned my call. He is going to give my name and number to Larry's aunt Violet to call me back.

DON BEEBE sent the following information to me on the Calhoun Co., Michigan GenForum page - this is my mom's family line up to Zere/a - Zere and my 6th great grandfather, Ira Beebe, were brothers. Their parents were Lt. Jonathan Beebe & Hannah Lewis:

Larry Dwayne Beebe 13 (Warren Merle 12, Emery John 11, Myron Jasper 10, James Mather 9, Abraham Warner [Abram W.]8, Zera 7, Jonathon 6, Joseph 5, John 4, John 3, John 2 Beeby, unknown 1) was born Dec 22, 1944 in Battle Creek, Calhoun Co., Michigan, USA.

Larry married Judy Lynn Gilson Oct 15, 1966 in Marshall, Calhoun Co., Michigan. USA, daughter of Jeane A. Gilson and Geraldine Haight. She was born Dec 22, 1945 in Battle Creek, Calhoun Co., Michigan, USA.

Notes for Larry Dwayne Beebe:
He was killed in the War in Viet Nam.

So .. I still do not know where Larry Dwayne Beebe is buried, but I know of his family now and hope that I can contact them and find the location.

Thank you to everyone who responded with information!

Toni
