F. A. Beezley

Mr. F. A. Beezley died at his home here at 11:30 this morning (August 11, 1927). He was one of Hunt County's pioneers, having moved to this county from Missouri when he was twelve years of age. His family first settled where Kellogg is now located. He moved to Celeste about twelve years ago. Mr. Beezley contributed greatly to the development of this county and was one of those rugged old timers who helped change it from its wild state to a good place to live. He was the first man in Hunt County to own and operate a stream engine. Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Mattie Beezley of Celeste; two sons, George A. Beezley and Ray Beezley of Pampa; and the following daughters, Mrs.Robert Sprinkles and Mrs. Bert Rodgers of Pampa, Mrs. Carl Fields and Mrs. Russell Furr of Amarillo, Mrs. Phillip Bounds of Mexia, Mrs. Arthur Swither of Dallas, and Mrs. Fletcher Bland of Celeste.
