Beasley Rites Set For Today
Agent Killed By Train Will Be Buried At Meadow Creek
Funeral services for E. P Beasley, Chesapeake and Ohio railroad station agent at
Glade, who was killed when hit by a train at Glade Saturday morning, will be held at Meadow Creek this afternoon at two o'clock.
Mr. Beasley met instant death, when with Rev. David Richmond, he alighted at Glade from a west bound train shortly after six o'clock Saturday morning and was struck by passenger train
number four running east. His companion, Rev. Richmond escaped unhurt. It is thought the agent failed to hear the approach
of the train which killed him.
He was the father of H. M. Beasley of Beckley, and had been accustomed to traveling
daily by train from his home at Meadow Creek to the station at Glade, where he had been agent for a number of years. He was
a cousin of former Deputy U. S. Marshall James Beasley. Other surviving relatives are his second wife and several children,
residing at Meadow Creek, One of his sons, Charley Beasley, lives at Alderson, and a daughter, Mrs John Richards, resides
