9.  A. J. Davis, ed.  1887.  History of Clarion County, Pennsylvania.  D. Mason & Co., Syracuse, NY (online at www.rootsweb.com/%7Epacchs/):
Beer, Henry, Fisher p.o., Mill Creek, was born in Armstrong county, on July 20, 1821.

His father, Jacob Beer, was a carpenter by trade, and when Blacks & Shippen's Furnace was in blast, he worked for them, doing carpenter work for three years. His wife's maiden name was Elizabeth Maccafoose, who was of German descent, her parents being both natives of Germany.  Jacob and Elizabeth had a family of twelve children; two boys and one girl are dead -- William, George, and Susan.  Those children now living are Jacob, Elizabeth, John, Henry, Martha, Christina, Samuel, Mary Ann, and Eve.

Henry Beer was married in 1851, to Elizabeth Stroup.  Their first child, Mary Ann, died while young.  The rest of their children, four in number, are all living -- William L., Anna M., John, and Alvaretta J

Mr. Beer has been engaged in farming and lumbering.  He has forty acres of farm land on which he now resides, much broken down in health.  He enlisted on August 1, 1861, as a private in the War of the Rebellion; was through the seven days' fight and other engagements, and was honorably discharged on account of disability, in October, 1862, for which he now receives a pension.
