Obituaries - NJ - 1901 - John A Beyer
John A. Beyer of Newman Springs took his own life last Saturday morning by firing a bullet through his brain. His dead body was found in the chicken yard back of the house by Grant Jones, a workman on the place. Coroner Tetley of Red Bank was notified but he did not deem an inquest necessary. No reason is assigned for Mr. Beyer's act, except the belief that he was temporarily insane. His family relations had always been happy and so far as known he had no cares that weighed on him. For some time past he had complained occasionally of pains in his head.
Mr. Beyer was the son of the late Elizabeth and John Beyer and was born at Brown's Dock, in Middletown township. He married Miss Mamie Dibble of Red Bank. She survives him but he leaves no children. Mr. Beyer was once engaged in the hay and grain business at Newark. At the time of his death he was employed by a hay and grain firm at New York.
Four sisters and two brothers survive Mr. Beyer. The sisters are Mrs. Elizabeth White, Mrs. Harold K. Allstrom, Mrs. J. D. Throckmorton and Miss Hannah Beyer, all of whom live at Red Bank. The brothers are George H. Beyer of Brooklyn and Andrew Beyer, who is in the South.
The funeral was held yesterday morning at the house and was private. Rev. S. H. Thompson had charge of the service. The body was buried at Fair View cemetery.
