Beiver, of Farmington, died a few days ago from the effects of injuries received on the 14th of last October while attempting to remove some property from his burning barn. At that time Mr. Beiver’s house was burglarized, an in the morning, when he went out to the barn, he found where some person had slept in the hay. A short time afterward, while he was eating his breakfast, the barn was discovered to be on fire. Mr. Beiver rushed out and succeeded in saving one horse, and in attempting to get the other out he was terribly burned. Since that time he had been a great sufferer until death came to his relief. The funeral was held last week Sunday. Mr. Beiver was one of the most prominent and substantial citizens of Farmington, and his death is a loss to the community. [Another related article states]: - FARMINGTON.—I regret to note the death of Mr. L. L. Beiver, who expired on the 7th instant from injuries received at the burning of his barn about four months ago. Mr. Beiver was born in Berks County, May 10, 1827, and went with his parents to Dauphin County when he was twelve years of age. Two years later he went to Jonesville to learn the tanner’s trade. In 1849 he came to Nelson, in this county, where he worked at his trade until 1861, when having purchased a farm in this township, he moved here. In 1864 he enlisted in Company H of the 207th PA Vols., and he remained with that organization until the close of the war. After his return from the war he very successfully followed the pursuit of farming. In 1850 he married Miss Eliza Lugg, of this township, who survives him with two children. In 1868 he joined the Presbyterian Church of Farmington, and he has since been a consistent and faithful member. By his death the community has lost a good citizen and faithful friend and a kind neighbor. * * * Brown's 1897 History of Tioga Co., Ch 60 - Farmington Twp.
