1. Title:   Obituary for Julia Ann Beam in the Tillsonburg News

a. Note:   Article in the February 24, 1949 Toronto Star appears under the headline "Woman, 86, Lives to see 104th descendant born" with photo of Allen George MacDonald and his aunt Joyce Burnett. A transcription from the 1903 Simcoe Reformer, states the following Ponting -- Rosa Bella Ponting, 18, Middleton spinster, born in Walsingham, daughter of Herbert Wm. Ponting and Julia Ann Beam, married Wm. James Arthur, 27, bachelor Walsingham farmer, born in Downie Township, Perth County, son of Samuel Arthur and Matilda H[....], in Courtland. Registration 013563 [Ontario Vital Stats] [Transcriber's Comment No date provided. Registration date 10 Jun 1903] This can be found on the Norfolk Historial Society Web site at http// Unfortunately, transcriptions for the Simcoe Reformer on that site don't cover 1893. But other information on the site shows the following on members of the Beam family(ies). Note another reference to Julia A. Beam, married to Herbert W. Ponting, and their same daughter referred to above. Given these two earlier references, this information indicates that Julia Ann's maiden name was Beam, not 'Bean' as appeared in two newspaper obituaries that listed her father's name being Darius Bean with an 'n'.
