Thanks to fellow researcher, Jean Whiteneck, I know have this obituary of my maternal 3rd-great grandaunt.  Mary Ann BEALS was the daughter of John T. and Mary (DAVIS) BEALS, and the younger sister of my Nathan T. BEALS.  Mary was born March 27, 1859 in Westfield, Hamilton County, Indiana.  She married on February 27, 1884 to Joseph Edwin GILBERT, son of P.M. and Emily GILBERT.
