ROUND LAKE — Stanley Beal has traveled widely through the continental United States, his only trip outside North America a weekend spent in the Bahamas. At age 91, one of his few regrets is not visiting Germany, the homeland of his ancestors and more recently many beloved friends.
“I had one Welsh great-grandfather who was with General Sherman through Georgia during the Civil War,” Beal noted. “He was given a quarter section in Round Lake Township. That’s why I’m here. But I’m seven-eighths German.”
ROUND LAKE — When Stanley Beal was a boy, a visit to the doctor cost $5, the same as the cost of tuition for a month of school. When he was a young man, people could only buy three gallons of gasoline a week, and the speed limit everywhere was 35 miles per hour.
