H. Brown. Mrs. Beardsley joined the Methodist Episcopal church when she was but 19 years of age and lived a constant consistent member of the church of her choice until her master called her home. Not long before her death she asked the writer to write her pastor at Williamsport to still continue her name as a member of the church as she wanted to die a member of the church she so dearly loved. In old ager her constant companion was her old family bible and her song, one used in the Methodist churches fifty years ago.
