BEVER, Wesley - returns healthy

Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Friday, 14 September 1894
Attica Ledger: Thirteen years ago Wesley Bever left this county and during that time nothing had been heard from him until a few weeks ago he wired his brother, Walter, at Pawnee City, Neb. Wesley had read in a newspaper of a railroad accident near Lincoln and among the list of missing noticed the name of a brother. His message was a great surprise, as every effort had been made to trace him by his father, Michael Bever, which was kept up after the death of the latter. Detectives were sent to Australia and other remote parts of the world and at last landed on the Pacific coast, eventually going to Colorado, where he was when he sent the message. The report of the death of his brother in the railroad wreck proved to be untrue and he journeyed to Pawnee City, where for the first time he learned of the death of his father and mother, which occurred only a few months before. When Wesley left Fountain County he was slender and in poor health, and he is now said to be in perfect health and physique and materially changed for the better in every respect. He is expected to visit his old home within the next months.
