quoted from the WACO (TEXAS) REGISTER]

“It becomes our painful duty to announce the death of Mr. Dennis Beall, son of one of our most respected citizens, Nelson Beall, Esq., of Frostburg.
The sad event took place during last month in the distant state of Texas. The deceased was a highly exemplary young man whose talents and high moral character gave promise of a brilliant future. He was admired and esteemed by all who knew him. His remains we learn will be brought home and interred in his native town. In common with the large circle of his friends and acquaintances who are now called upon to mourn his loss, we sympathize deeply with his afflicted parents and relatives in their sad bereavement.” [MOUNTAIN CITY TIMES, 12-11-1869, p. 3]

Young Fannie appears to have died on the same day as her brother, FRANK (see immediately below). They share a common headstone but it is broken in a way that obliterates her birth date. Although she is Frank's sister, it is not clear whether she is his twin.
