GEORGE OMAR BEALL, one of the useful citizens of Binghamton, New York, who has achieved a successful place among
the citizens of that town by virtue of his own ability, unaided, and who may truly be characterized as the architect
of his own fortune, is a product of the West, born January 16, 1896, in Richmond, Indiana, son of Cash and Flora
(Hoerner) Beall. The former is engaged in business in Richmond as a clothing merchant.
George O. Beall attended the schools of Richmond. The occupation of his father did not appeal as strongly to him
as a life in the open, and accordingly he chose to follow fanning. Just about the time he was fairly launched in
this work the call to America's young men came, and as in thousands of cases it temporarily encroached on their
careers. Mr. Beall enlisted, February 28, 1918, and on April 13, 1918, sailed for Liverpool, England; he was a
member of the 77th Division, and served until May 9, 1919. On his return to civilian life he located in Binghamton,
New York, where he now has a farm of 300 acres. There is a large dairy, one of the largest in Binghamton, connected
with this farm, and also an oil station, and all of these different interests are managed solely by Mr. Beall.
He is deserving of much credit for the admirable maimer in which he takes care of all these details.
On July 25, 1917, at Binghamton, Mr. Beall married Alta Sibley, born in Hawleyton, Broome county, New York, January
27, 1895, daughter of Frank E. and Edith (Rawley) Sibley. Two Sons have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Beall: George
Omar, born April 28, 1920; Edward Clay, born June 19, 1921.
