Need help identifying children of Jacob Linsley Bean and Jane E McCullough

According to the History of Wisconsin, Its Story and Biography, 1848-1913, Volume 4, Jacob Linsley Bean and Jane E McCullough had 10 children. At this time, I only know the names of three of those ten children: Mary Ella Bean Townsend, Captain Irving McCullough Bean and Lt. Colonel Sydney Alfred Bean.

Jacob L Bean was a prominent figure in Waukesha from 1846 when he settled in Waukesha (having moved from Milwaukee) until his death in 1855. Among Jacob's notable biographical details are: 1) the projection and construction of railway lines including the Milwaukee & LaCrosse Railroad company of which he became president; and 2) his acquisition of principal interest in Northwestern Iron Co. (1854) and involvement in mining and smelting operations.

I am hoping that someone may have access to historical documents that identify any of his other children.

I found a short note on his death but does not name his children but will send it in case you do not have it: also where did the children you know of live? maybe their obits would name the other children?

Milwaukee Daily News May 9, 1855, page 2
DIED
In Waukesha, on Tuesday the 8th inst., of congestion
on the brain, JACOB L. BEAN, aged 46
years.
Mr. BEAN was a former resident of this city, and
was one of the most energetic and active business
men in Eastern Wisconsin. In his death the business
interests of this section of the State have met
with a heavy loss, and an unusually bright and
promising family have lost a kind husband and parent,
and a most intelligent adviser.

I found the obit for Capt. I.M. Bean which does list Gertrude and Sanborn as siblings
Waukesha Freeman December 1, 1910, page 4
CAPT. I. M. BEAN
The death of Capt. I. M. Bean at his home in Milwaukee of paralysis,after an illness that extended over
nearly a year, on Sunday, November 20, removed one of Wisconsin's most valuable citizens.
He had resided in this state since early boyhood. He was educated at Milwaukee and Carroll college, and on the threshold of young manhood entered the service of the country in 1861, and gained distinction as a brave
officer in the 5th Wisconsin Regiment, with which he served two years or more, retiring with the rank of captain.
Following the Civil war he entered upon his business career and was at the head of important enterprises for
many years at Milwaukee, and until failing health admonished him to relinquish active responsibilities.
At the time he suffered his paralytic stroke early
in the present year he was in New York, being about to sail for Europe, a journey which he was compelled to relinquish.
Capt. Bean aside from his private business affairs found time to give valuable services to the public in various ways, and he was among the public spirited, capable men, who aided materially in making the metropolis one of the most progressive cities of the country.
A Waukesha, where much of his early life was passed and from where entered the military service soon after he had
begun a professional career,there are many who sincerely
regret his demise.
Capt. Bean is survived by one sister, Miss Gertrude Bean, who made her home with her brother; one brother, Sanborn Bean, Waukesha; one daughter, Mrs. Edgar N. Dickson,
Milwaukee, and two sons, Sidney A. Bean, New York and Irving MaC. Bean, Milwaukee.

so then I wonder is this Gertrude Bean??
Wisconsin State Journal August 15, 1943, page 4
Thousands Left
to Missing Woman
MILWAUKEE —— Termsof a will filed for probate in county
court here Saturday provided $15.-000 cash and one-third of the residue of an estate totaling more than
§100,000 for a former Milwaukee
woman who has been missing since
two days before Singapore fell to
the Japanese in 1942.
The will is that of Gertrude
Saxe Bean, 87, who died Aug. 10.
She was an aunt of Mrs. Gertrude
Bean Hinch, 50, former head of the
YWCA of the federated Malay
states. The ship on which Mrs.
Hinch sailed from Singapore was
believed torpedoed in February,
1942.
Under terms of the will, if Mrs.
Hinch is not found, the mother's

there is also an article-Waukesha Freeman, May 27 1862
of a Sheriff Sale of Mortaged Land- George McWhorter Jr. against
Oscar Adams and wife Elizabeth A. Adams
Jane Eliza Bean
Walker L. Bean and wife Elizabeth
Sidney A. Bean
Irving M Bean
Margaretta L. Burlock
Sanborn J. Bean
Gertrude Ban
Lucian Clark and his wife Mary

could these be all Bean siblings?
then I found an article Nov 27, 1922 a woman is recalling the old days and she writes about the Bean family
in this article she mentions the children of Jacob Bean:
Little Jane Bean when a child laid to rest in Prairie Home
Charottle when about 4 or 5 drowned in the cistern at the home
the 2 eldest sons were in the war, Irving M is mentioned and says his 2 older sisters died many years ago the youngest Miss Gertrude Bean and only surviving makes her home in Milwaukee, Sanborn J is the youngest of the 4 boys.

So going by all this I think the kids are
Irving, Sidney, Charottle, Jane, Gertrude, Mary, Walker, Margarette, Sanborn, Elizabeth
I may be wrong ...

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.
