John Beedle’s burial place was not found in family trees; only Richmond was stated in the histories. His wife was Susannah Wilson.

He very possibly was buried in this cemetery where his son James B. and other descendants were buried. There must be a number of the old markers that were lost over time. The cemetery seems very unkempt from the photo.

There seems to be another old cemetery right by this one called Beedle Cemetery. Perhaps that was John Beedle’s burial place, as well as that of his wife Susannah Wilson.
