then I found this for you-this will be of some help!
Waukesha Freeman May 30, 1895, page 6
The Bean Family.
In the most superficial review of
Waukesha in the war. the name of
Bean comes prominently to mind.
Mrs. Bean, a widow, sent three sons
and a son-in-law—all fine, intellectual,
noble young men—to the war, and
only one returned alive. Few families
suffered so severe an affliction.
Lieut. Walker L. Bean of the 28th
Wisconsin died of disease at Columbus.
Ky., December, 1862.
Col. Sidney A. Bean of the-4th Wisconsin
was killed while gallantly leading
his command into action at Port
Hudson April, 1863.
Capt. M. G. Townsend of the 28th
Wisconsin was killed near Helena,
Ark., in April, 1864.
Captain Irving M. Bean, alone of
the four, returned to his home. He
went out as captain of the first company
recruited in Waukesha, and
returned with a record of noble service
in the army of the Potomac. He is
now an honored resident of Milwaukee.
Col. Sidney A. Bean was a man of
exceptionally brilliant gifts, destined,
his friends believed, to achieve great things.
He possessed fine powers as
a public speaker and writer arid,
though only thirty years old when he
died, was a student of a high degree
of culture. He left a position as
instructor in Carroll College to establish
the Forest City bank of this village
of which he was president and
manager. He was appointed lieutenant
colonel of the Fourth Wisconsin
and succeeded to the command of the
regiment by the death of his superior
officer. The bodies of Sidney A.
Bean and Walker L. Bean were
brought back, to Waukesha and buried
in Prairie Home cemetery.
