Leo Beachy March 24 1874 - 1927

Leo J Beachy changed careers giving up teaching at the age of 31 for the impromptu days of a photographer. When he died in 1927, at age 35, his extraordinary pictures seemed to die with him. But over the past 15 years several thousand have been discovered, illuminating an error of humor and wonder once again. To visit the web site where Leo's pictures are posted click here.

Roger Peachey

Crash closes Route 45. Mr. Oliveri jerked the wheel to the right, police said, striking the back of Mr. Peachey's minivan and then crashing into a utility pole, which broke in half but stayed upright because it was supported by several intact wires. Complete story.

Brian L. Beachy

Brian showed his boat at the boat show in Depoe Bay Oregon. I tryed to call him on the phone, the recording said the phone was no longer in service.
It looks like a labor of love to hand craft a boat of such beauty. Anyone know where Brian lives? Let me know, maybe he is building another boat?

Freeman Beachy - Pinecraft FL

Rebecca Malbry credit for picture & article.

It's a home away from home, says Freeman Beachy of Arthur. Beachy first saw Pinecraft as a teenager in the '50s. He and his wife, Bertha, took occasional vacations there, and then about 12 years ago they built a small "spec" home. Bertha liked it so well they decided to keep it, and now spend five months a year there.
