“Prof. George N. Beall. Professor George N. Beall, 74, unmarried son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Nelson Beall, pioneer resident of this city, died last night at Miner’s Hospital, where he had been a patient since Saturday. In failing health for sometime, Mr. Beall suffered a stroke.
A violinist, he maintained a studio here for many years. The Beall orchestra, with Mr. Beall as the leader, was for many years, one of the most prominent musical organizations in the county. He was the owner of several rare violins.
Mr. Beall acquired his early education at a school in Indiana, Pa., and his musical education from private instructors.
He was widely known as a sportsman and spent many of his summers at the South Branch of the Potomac with fishing parties. A member of St. John’s Episcopal Church and a charter member of Frostburg Lodge No. 470, B.P.O. Elks, he was held in high esteem in the community, where he contributed much to the cultural life.
The last member of his immediate family, he was a cousin of former State Senator J. Glenn Beall, this city, and was a brother of the late Frank C. Beall, prominent hardware merchant here for many years. With the exception of several years, when he resided at Staunton, Va., where he was connected with an iron foundry owned by his father, he spent practically all his life in Frostburg. The body is at Hafer’s Funeral Home, where friends and relatives will be received.” [CET 8-13-1941, p.11]

“Death of Capt. Beall—-Capt. Nelson Beall, of this place, died 8 o’clock Saturday evening, Feb. 13, 1886, in the 72nd year of his age, at his winter home, Winter Park, Florida. His remains reached Frostburg Wednesday afternoon last and were interred in the old cemetery Thursday afternoon. A friend of Mr. Beall will furnish further particulars next week.” [FMJ 2-20-1886]

“A brief notice last week informed our readers of the death on the 13th inst., at Winter Park, Florida, of Capt. Nelson Beall, of this place. The details of the sad event go to show that his end was peaceful and painless. He had for years suffered with a digestive trouble. As age came on this grew worse and his suffering more constant and acute. Through all the long ordeal, however, he never feared death, and during his last hours he spoke of the coming change with perfect composure and resignation.
