Spring Valley in Rockland County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Daniel Carter Beard
— June 21, 1850 - June 11, 1941 —
Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, from 1928 until his death in 1941, Uncle Den called Brooklands in Suffern, Rockland County, New York his home.
His final resting place is here in Rockland County at the Brick Church Cemetery, Monsey, New York. Daniel Carter Beard was a woodsman, naturalist, illustrator, artist, and author. In 1905 he founded the Sons of Daniel Boone. This organization merged with other boys organizations on February 8, 1910 to become the Boy Scouts of America, the national organization we know today.
As one of the original founders of the Boy Scouts of America, Uncle Dan is known as a national figure. In his usual choice of attire, buckskin clothing, he epitomized the true pioneering spirit of the Boy Scouts of America and will continue to do so for the Scouts of today, tomorrow and the future.
