Author: J. H. Beadle - John Hanson Beadle, journalist and author, was born in Liberty township, Parke County, Indiana, Mar. 14, 1840, son of James Ward and Elizabeth (Bright) Beadle. As a youth of twenty-one he enlisted in the 31st Indiana infantry for the Civil War, serving as a private until 1862, when he was discharged for disability. He then entered the State University of Michigan, where he studied law in addition to his regular subjects, and was graduated in 1867. He was admitted to the bar, but afer practicing in Evansville, Indiana for one year, abandoned that profession for the career of a journalist. His first newspaper work was done for the Cincinnnati Commercial following which he spent eight years in the far West, the first year as editor of the Salt Lake Reporter. His "Life in Utah," "Western Wilds and the Men Who Redeem Them," and "The Undeveloped West" are the results of his experiences in the western states. In the latter years of his life he wrote editorials and historical and political articles for the American Press Association. Subsequently he made an extended tour of Canada and Nova Scotia and in 1890, through Europe. Out of this latter experience came "A Hoosier Abroad." He was married Dec. 25, 1872, to Jennie, daughter of James Cole, of Evansville, Indiana, and had five children: Helen Marjorie; James Ward; Bessie Cole; Mary Eliza; and John Bookwalter Beadle. He died in Washington, D.C., Jan. 15, 1897.
