He obtained a good education in the common schools and State Normal School in Mansfield. In 1881-1882 he was a bookkeeper for a mining company at Hillsboro, New Mexico, and the balance of his life has been spent on the old homestead, where he has prosecuted farming quite successfully. Mr. Beiver was married October 31, 1883, to Emma Hall, a daughter of Rhodes W. and Jane A. (Knight) Hall of Farmington, and has two sons, Claude H. and Clyde A. In politics, he is a Republican, has held the office of school director in his township, and has been secretary of the school board for nine years. He is one of the most intelligent and progressive citizens of his township. " * * * The Wellsboro Agitator of Nov 17, 1885 has: "--FARMINGTON HILL-The spirit of improvement seems to be abroad, seeking whom he may inspire, and his success is manifest upon all sides. C. L. Beiver has a fine new barn, 84 by 70 feet, with basement, upon the site of the one that burned last year. E. Thomas has also built a new barn with a basement. R. H. Close has put his annual addition upon the side of his barn this year, instead of upon the end as heretofore. A. J. Colgrove has built a fine new house. Ellison Moore has built another wing to his house and finished the one begun a short time ago. Our energetic Supervisor, Frank Dunham, is enlarging his house. M. L. Whitman has been rebuilding and remodeling his house, outside and in. J. E. Clark has timber ready for a building of some sort; just what I have been unable to learn."
