Second Generation


5. Thomas BEEDE1,19 was born on 6 July 1737 in Sandwich, Strafford, New Hampshire.20,21 [The DAR Patriot Index says he was born 1 Jun 1732 in Kingston, Rockingham, New Hampshire. However, his gravestone says he died 6 March 1806 at age 68 yr 8 mo.]

He appeared in the census in 1790 in Poplin (now Fremont), Rockingham, New Hampshire. Name: Thomas Beedy 1 male 16+: himself
1 male < 16: ??
4 females: prob. wife Elizabeth & daus. Abigail, Charlotte & Mary.

The male < 16 *might* be son Thomas Jr. if I have the wrong birth year for him [he would be 18 with my date], or he was entered incorrectly on the census. He is not accounted for elsewhere.

He appeared in the census in 1800 in Poplin (now Fremont), Rockingham, New Hampshire. Name: Thomas BUD
00101-10101

1 male 16-25: unknown
1 male 45+: himself (1737)

1 female < 10: unknown
1 female 16-25: unknown
1 female 45+: prob. wife Elizabeth (1727)

Who were the others in this household? It appears to be a young married couple with a young daughter.
Thomas died from being kicked by his horse on 6 March 1806 at the age of 68 in Poplin (now Fremont), Rockingham, New Hampshire.21 He was buried at Beede Cemetery in West Sandwich, Carroll, New Hampshire.21
Inscription:
Thomas Beede, born Sandwich NH, died March 6, 1806 68y 8m

Revolutionary War service has been verified for Thomas and established for eligibility for descendants by the DAR. Though not a soldier, Thomas Beede was a patriot by virtue of the fact that he carried provisions from Fremont, NH to the soldiers at Cambridge, MA.

Thomas BEEDE and Elizabeth URANN of Kingston were married about 1754.4,22 They settled first in Brentwood (now Fremont) where their children were born. They moved to Gilmanton in 1804. Elizabeth URANN of Kingston, daughter of James URIN (URANN) and Hannah EDGERLY, was born about 1727 in Gilmanton, Belknap, New Hampshire.19,21 Her gravestone says she died at age 92y 4m, which would make her birth date 20 Jul 1732, and her baptism date wrong.

She was baptized in 1727 in Greenland, Rockingham, New Hampshire.19 She appeared in the census in 1790 in Poplin (now Fremont), Rockingham, New Hampshire. She is probably one of the 4 females living in Thomas' household.

Elizabeth appeared in the census in 1800 in Poplin (now Fremont), Rockingham, New Hampshire. She is probably the female age 45+ in Thomas' household.

She died on 20 November 1824 at the age of 97 in Gilmanton, Belknap, New Hampshire.19 Printed sources and her gravestone indicate that she was 92 when she died. If we are to assume that her baptismal date in 1727 is correct (and that she was baptized as an infant), then her age at death would have been 97, not 92. She was buried at Beede Cemetery in West Sandwich, Carroll, New Hampshire.21
Inscription: Elizabeth Beede, wife, born Gilmanton, NH, died November 20, 1824 92y 4m
