George & Elizabeth Beaubien

In the last month or so I have shared Samuel and Alice’s oldest son, James, today I want to share with you another one of their children George.

George Beaubien was on twelve children, born on February 21, 1895.

I always wondered if I ever had a family member that was in one of the World Wars. My grandfather was to young for World War One and to old for World War Two. Comes to find out, that George was in World War One. He was a Private First Call (PFC) in the United States Army. He served from May 5th 1917 to August 4th 1919 in the 4th Field Artillery Brigade.
