DAVID BELLER, died at his home in Vinton, Iowa, December 30, 1906, leaving a widow and four sons. He was born in Fayette county, Ohio, January 13, 1834, and at the age of sixteen years removed with his parents, Robert Beller and his wife, to Peoria, Illinois, where they lived some seven years and then removed to Benton county, Iowa. In 1857 he married Rachel Barton, who has lived in Vinton until recently when she went to live with a son in Boise, Idaho; she is now in her sixty-eighth year. David Beller and his wife lived on their farm in section 19, Eden township, until 1899, and then were able to retire and live in Vinton. He was a very successful farmer and at one time owned three hundred and twenty acres, incorporated in two farms in Eden township, and one of eighty acres near Mount Auburn. He was a charter member of the Second Eden Methodist Epicopal church for which donated the site, and he assisted materially in raising the building fund; the church was erected in 1874, and was commonly called the "Beller church."

David Beller and his wife reared six sons, of whom four survive, namely: A. M., of Boise City, Idaho, where he is in business; E. A., a farmer of Sheldon, Iowa; Dr. 0. B., formerly of Vinton, now of Nampa, Idaho; and M. B., who owns and operates part of the home farm in Eden township. Two sons, Albert and Monte, died in infancy.
