MARRAIGE: INFO FROM FILM #1266985 RECORD #1600 GRANT COUNTY MARRAIGE RECORDS (LAST NAME SPELLED BEAVEN)

Occupation: Farmer
Co. A. 33 Wisconsin

Married Jane Davis on the way home from the Civil War.

During the Civil War, Mr. Bevan was enlisted in Company A, 33d Wis. V.I., and served in the Western Army under Gen. Banks, and then under Gen. Thomas, participating in a number of fiercely contested battles on the Mississippi, and in front of Nashville. From that city the 33d Wisconsin went to Mobile, and assisted in the capture of that city and its protecting forts. It remained in the service until September 1865, and had many difficult experiences. After the war Mr. Bevan went back to his old home in Ohio, were he remained for a time. His political views coincide with the principles of the Republican party, and he has held the office of justice of the peace for eight years. As one might expect from his military record, he takes an interest in his old comrades of the tented camp and battlefield, and belongs to Sherman Post, No. 66 G.A.R at Platteville. In religion Mr. and Mrs. Bevan are associated with the Baptist Church, though his own people are Quakers. Mr. Bevan is a man highly respected for his many good qualities, and is esteemed for his sterling worth and genuine character. Mrs. Bevan is a worthy companion of her honerable and upright husband, and is highly regarded for her womanly character and estimable spirit.
