Lizzie and Johnson met at Marshall Field's Department Store in Chicago, when Johnson, who was selling stationary, came into the store where Lizzie was working. They dated, were quickly engaged, and married only five months later. Lizzie wrote a letter home three days before the marriage, informing her parents she was about to be married, and asking that they not judge her.

[62]

The 1900 census gives his occupation at age 17 as a dry goods clerk. A member of the Claggett family, Bernard Clagget, owned a "dry goods store" as of the 1900 Census, so it's possible Johnson worked in his uncle's store.

According to his daughter, Jane, Johnson was a "high expense man," She said that he worked many years as a traveling salesman for a seat manufacturer. In 1930, he separated from his wife and moved from Kansas City, Missouri, to Chicago. He was frequently out of touch with the rest of his family. After the Depression hit, in 1933 his seating sales job went from salary plus commission to full commission. He left that job and managed hotels. We know from family letters that in 1950 he was managing the Hazel-Crest Hotel at 4278 Hazel Avenue in Chicago. He stayed in touch with some members of the family on occasion, as shown by letters he wrote.

His daughter Jane wrote, "In graduate school [around 1944] I came into Chicago to accompany a friend to the hospital. On leaving the hospital I called my father to tell him I was in town, was returning to Ann Arbor on a train later that day, but would have some time to visit, if he were free. He became annoyed that I had not told him in advance of my coming, saying that since I hadn't bothered to tell him, he wouldn't bother to see me. I never talked to him again or wrote him. I only attended a graveside burial service in the little town where he had grown up. This was five or six years after the call."

Johnson T. Beasley Dies In Chicago Burial In Lexington

Johnson Tucker Beasley, 67, Chicago, a former resident of Lexington, died suddenly of a heart attack in Chicago Saturday, April 1, 1950.

He was born in Lexington Feb. 18, 1883 a son of Luther and Matilda Beasley. He married Elizabeth Bremser of Norwalk, Ohio, in 1918.

Mr. Beasley is survived by his wife; two daughters, Miss Jane Beasley of Athena, Ohio, and Mrs. Annabeth Phelps, of Long Beach, Cal., three sisters, Mrs. Beulah Garrett, Mrs. Frances Grimes and Mrs. Ruth Ricketts, all of Lexington and two brothers, Guy and Felix Beasley, of Detroit, Mich. He was preceded in death by two daughters, one son and one sister. Masonic services were held at the Fern Funeral home in Chicago at 8 p.m. Monday.

Mrs. Garrett, Mrs. Grimes, and Mrs. Ricketts went to Chicago for the services and accompanied the funeral party to Lexington Tuesday.

Brief services were held at the Lexington cemetery Tuesday afternoon. The Rev. Loren Miller, pastor of the Lexington Evangelical United Brethren church, offered prayer at the grave. Members of the Lexington Masonic Lodge served as pall bearers.

Our Appreciation

We wish to thank our many friends who remembered us with cards of sympathy and in other thoughtful ways expressed their understanding for us at the time of the sudden passing of our brother, Johnson T. Beasley. We would thank, too, the Rev Loren Miller and the Masons who officiated at the grave. We are deeply grateful.

Lizzie came to the US through Ellis Island with her parents in May 1892 when she was four years of age. Her daughter Annabeth said Elizabeth apprenticed herself at age 12 or 13 in Norwalk, Ohio to a milliner for no pay. After a short time, less than a year, she left her parents' home and Norwalk for Columbus, Ohio. The two ladies who ran the shop in Norwalk got her a job in a shop in Columbus and a place to stay in a Quaker boarding house.

Lizzie discovered that the milliner trade was seasonal and the next Christmas she got a job as a saleswoman. She found she liked that work more. The next winter, when hat season ended, she went with a friend to Chicago and got a temporary job at Marshall Fields, the largest retailer and department store in the city. She outsold all the other employees and was given a full-time job. It was there that she met Johnson Tucker Beasley, who was selling stationary at the time. They dated and were quickly engaged and married only five months later. She married without telling her parents, only telling them after the fact in a letter home:

Chicago, Ill
4-15-3

My Dear Father Mother and Sisters,

I have a letter to write to you all tonight that will be the biggest and I hope the happiest most pleasant surprise you have had in a good many years. I am going to be married Friday night at 8:30 and shall be at home to see you sometime Sat depends on trains and John is going to find out tomorrow and I shall let you know later. Now donít say I am foolish as my husband to be and myself are in our right minds. His name is John Beasley. I have known him two months became engaged last Sunday and shall be Mrs. Beasley by next Sunday. This may all be very strange to you. But if I had known this man for 5 years I could not care more for him than I do this moment. He has just left. We made out a list of all our friends and shall send out our announcements Friday. No one but Hazel knows anything about it. We shall be married at the Baptist church here in Chicago and I quit my position Friday at noon. We have all arrangements made. I am getting the best man you shall ever want to know and I know you will all like him. He is very tall + dark + is 30 years old. He knows what he is doing and so do I. Just remember that I have for the past years always known what was best and right for me to do and a better, cleaner and good man I know I never shall want. I am nearly 24 years old. You all realize if I am ever to be married now is the time and I do love the man. I donít know how you people will all take this but just remember I have always been Godís child and will do nothing wrong and but what I think is right. I am one of the many happy girls to night and I want you all to be happy with me. I have not shed one tear and mama dear just every time you think of your daughter getting married just smile and remember the last time I said I never would get married and what little use I had for the men. It is nearly 11 o'clock and I have lots of little things to do before the event and with lots of love I send you this knowing that you understand that I am doing what is right in the sight of all business, thoughts and God.

Your Elizabeth

4324 Lake Ave
Will let you know later about trains.




Their first child was born slightly less than nine months later, indicating perhaps the reason for their sudden and speedy marriage.

Jane Beasley Raph recalls Lizzie's birthplace as being Burgschwalbach, however her birth certificate says Hähnstatten. She is buried in the family plot in Woodlawn Cemetary in Norwalk, with her parents Henry and Philopina Bremser, her aunt and uncle Minnie and Curt Klein, and her two daughters Annabeth and Jane.

[132]

Robert's death after only four days of life was a huge blow to his parents. They separated afterwards for a few months. (per Jane Beasley Raph)

[21]

In August 1952 Jane was diagnosed with cystic endometrosis. Dr. C. Burns conducted an salpingo-opehorectormy at this time. Jane was continually bothered with tenderness and pain in her reproductive system, and had a partial hysterectomy at an early age which prevented her from having children.

Jane educated herself at Bowling Green State University, University of Michigan, and Teacher's College at Columbia University, obtaining a Ed.D in Child Developmental Psychology. She later completed a post-doctoral study in Psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University and New York University, New York City. She was the first in her family to obtain a university degree.

She was associated with the leading researchers and educators in early child development. She taught from 1957 to 1976 in the Graduate School of Education, Department of Psychological Foundations, Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey. She co-authored in 1973 with dean Milton Schwebel "Piaget in the Classroom" that 30 years later is still in print.

She was a pioneer in establishing Head Start in South Carolina. She taught at Rutgers Univeristy for over 25 years. After her retirement to Arizona, she continued to work at the Univeristy of Arizona and in the local school districts.

One of Jane's favorite poems:

Daughters

We are daughters
in a hand of generations
etched
in a mold of individuality.

framed by mothers'
grace repose
mistakes
laughter

to do and be
what she was not
power
to plan our own path

Serenity to turn
a stone on its side
polished
with insight
the larger part.

A ribbon to tie
on the curl of our own
a kiss
to bless the new ones
in ruffles.
-Author Unknown


Obiturary:

Dr. Jane Beasley Raph, 83, passed away at home on September 4, 2000. Jane was born with her twin sister Ruth to Elizabeth Margaret Bremser and Johnson Tucker Beasley on May 31st, 1917 in Detroit, MI. Jane was the first in her family to attend college, beginning at Bowling Green State University in Ohio. In 1955 she received her Doctorate of Education from Teachers College at Columbia University. Jane was loved by her students for her personal encouragement along with her challenging, participative instructional methods. Jane was highly regarded by her colleagues for her collegial attitude and professional excellence.

During the 1960's, she assisted in establishing Head Start programs in disadvantaged areas in Alabama and New Jersey. She became an authority on early childhood education, especially Piaget. She published frequently during her long academic career at Rutgers University and, after 1977, at Arizona State University. Jane was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Theodore Raph, by her brother Robert, and by her sisters Ruth and Betty. She is survived by her sister Annabeth Phelps of Monterey, CA. and a nephew, Brian Phelps of Livermore, CA. Memorial gifts in lieu of flowers may be made to the Banner Hospice. A memorial service will be held on September 24 at 3:30 PM at Friendship Village in Tempe. Arrangements are being made by Tempe Mortuary.

--Arizona Republic, September 8, 2000

[134]

Ruth was always the weaker of the twins. According to her sister Jane, whenever mother (Elizabeth) would travel and strangers would offer assistance with the twins, mother always handed Jane to the stranger, as Ruth was the weaker of the two. Ruth died in the 1919 flu epidemic. (per Jane Beasley Raph)

[127]

BIOGRAPHY: Betty was a "blue baby." She was born with a heart valve defect. Doctors told Elizabeth that Betty would not live long. That she lived for four and a half years was something of a miracle. She died of endocarditis after more than two years illness.

Obituary in the Norwalk Reflector-Herald, Newspaper Date: 31 Dec 1925, Newspaper Page: 1 Column: 6;

[18]

Annabeth was found dead on May 30, 2001, peacefully curled up in her bed. Thus her death certificate bears that date. However, based on evidence in her home, it is apparent that she passed away sometime during the day of May 17, 2001. This is based on decomposition of the body, on the postmarks found on mail not yet removed from the mailbox, and from the date of an unread newspaper found just inside the front door. Since she did not subscribe to the paper, but had to go out to buy it, we surmise that she went out and bought a paper. She brought it home and not feeling well, went back to bed, never to wake on this side of the veil.

Conversations with her physician revealed that she was taking medicine for high blood pressure. Her medical records revealed that she had been hospitalized about three years previously for heart-related issues. Thus her doctor concluded that it was likely she experienced a heart attack.

Obituary from the Monterey County Herald

Annabeth Beasley Phelps, 74, a longtime resident of Monterey, died May 17 at her home. She was born July 16, 1926, in Kansas City, Mo., and lived in Monterey for 45 years.

Mrs. Phelps grew up in Illinois and Ohio and graduated from Southeast High School in Kansas City in 1943. In 1956 she moved to Monterey, where she worked as a stenographer for the Monterey County Probation Department and the Department of the Army at Fort Ord.

She was a founding officer of the Monterey Chapter of Parents without Partners and helped organize the Oak Knoll Neighborhood Association. She attended First Presbyterian Church of Monterey and was very active in the Monterey County Democratic Party. She was known for her letter-writing, her strong Democratic politics, and her large collections of silver and copper items and German memorabilia.

Mrs. Phelps is survived by a son, Brian Phelps of Livermore; five grandsons; and her former husband, Harold B. "Hal" Phelps of Santa Maria. She was preceded in death by a son, Harold B. "Bud" Phelps; three sisters, Betty Beasley, Ruth Beasley and Jane Rath; and a brother, Robert Beasley.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. June 16 at Mission Memorial Park Chapel of Seaside. Inurnment will be in the family plot in Norwalk, Ohio.

The family suggests that any memorial contributions be sent to the SPCA of Monterey County, P. O. Box 3058, Monterey 93942.
