LINEAGE:
Father: Francis (Frank) Robert Beede b: 7/22/10 Boston, d: 7/20/1952, Boston.
Grandfather: Frank Rex Beede b: 1880 Lynn, MA, d: 7/22/1929, Married Mary Veronica Cashman, b: 1888, Boston, died 1967: Children: Francis Robert (1910); Earnest; Warren (b 1913); Doris; Paul (b: 1916).
Great Grandfather: Franklin P. Beede?? b: 10/5/1854 Lynn, MA.

COMMENTS: In my sister Jane's birth page (1948), my father is referenced as Francis Robert Beede; his father as Frank R. Beede; and his Grandfather as Franklin P Beede.
It seems too coincidental that the Franklin P. Beede b: 10/5/1854 in Lynn, MA might not be the same as Franklin Pierce Beede born in Lynn, MA at about the same time. If this is the same man, then the lineage runs back to Eli through Valentine; Elijah; Nathan; and Judge Daniel.

COMMENTS: I recently purchased a small piece of land originally purchased by Albert Thomas Beede in 1884? The land fronts a road that was once named after A. T. Beede as well as the the lake (currently named Lake Geneva) which sits behind me. Both Albert Thomas and his brother George Kimball Beede were prominent citizens and Business men in Seattle in the 1880's and 1890's. Albert Thomas Beede married the twin sister of Ellen McNulty, Belinda "Belle" McNulty. I'm interested in finding out as much as I can about their time spent here in the Seattle area.

Other BEEDE / BEEDY Cousins
(Still looking for their connection to Eli)

Diane LaValley DARVILLE lives in Pensacola, FL. She has two lines in the BEEDE family, both of them stemming from her grandmother Gertie Rosan EASTMAN.  Her mother was Cora (Flora) E. BEEDE, who's father was Bliss D. BEEDE, son of Alvah and Ruth (CARR) BEEDE.  There is evidence to suggest that Alvah's father was a Joseph BEEDE, born 1768 in Sandwich, NH, but no proof has been found. Cora married Fred A. EASTMAN. His maternal grandparents were John and Asenath (BEEDE) FORD.  Asenath was the daughter of Alvah and Ruth (CARR) BEEDE.
Heather Jo BEEDY lives in Strong, ME.

COMMENTS: THIS IS AS FAR BACK AS I CAN GET ON MY LINEAGE SINCE MY GREAT GREAT GREAT GRANDFATHER WILLIAM IS PRETTY MUCH LISTED AS HAVING NO PARENTS THAT ARE KNOWN OF. I WOULD APPRECIATE ANY AND ALL HELP OF KNOWING HOW FAR BACK MY BEEDE LINEAGE REALLY GOES.

Linda Bearse-Netto lives in Harpster, ID.

LINEAGE (so far):
William R. BEARSE (her father)
Elsie Icel SCOTT Bearse
Phoebe Viola BUSCHMANN Scott
Susan Ann BEEDE Buschmann (1844-1920)
Alexander BEEDE - born in PA or ME - He married Susan SMITH in 1821.

Patricia Denise Taylor lives in Hesperia, MI.

LINEAGE: My Beedy lineage starts with my 3rd great grandmother, Mary S. Beedy, b. 1836, in Fayette, Ohio. James Beedy gives oath that she is old enough to marry Samuel Burk in Fayette, Ohio, in 1858, by making his mark. Mary may have been married before this to Adam James in 1856, in Van Wert County, Ohio. After Samuel died in 1879, she married Daniel Shafer in 1880. Her obit says she is survived by two sisters and one brother but gives no names. I first find her when she is 15 years old in the 1850 census with a John P. Beedy, b. Maryland, about 1812, a Mary A.
Beedy, b. 1819, (probably John's wife) and a Phil N. Beedy, whom I believe is really Nathaniel or Othaniel Beedy, b. 1843, Ohio. John P. Beedy owned land in Willshire, Van Wert County, Ohio in 1854, and sold it in 1855. I find him no more after that.

 

Other Reserchers
(Not descended from Eli but researching the family because of an earlier connection or other reasons)

Dana FELLOWS lives in Dixon, IL.
LINEAGE: Eli Beede and my Ancestor Isaac Fellows married two daughters of Aaron Sleeper. Several generations later Noah Beede married my ggg-aunt, Julia Fellows, and they all came here to the area that is now known as Dixon, Illinois with my GGG-Grandfather Stephen Fellows and his 15 children. I still live near Dixon IL after the Fellows' Family arrived 170 years ago.
Tammi Lea Bertolami lives in Fremont, NH.

COMMENTS: I am the Secretary of the Fremont/Poplin NH Historical Society.  I have many of the Beede's buried right here in town. As a genealogist of the Fremont families, the Beede's have become a great fascination and interest. I get many inquiries of them, and am always anxious to learn more.

Chad Douglas BEDEE lives in Crystal River, FL.

LINEAGE: Father: Howard E. Bedee JR.
Grandfather: Howard E. Bedee SR. born Toledo, OH
G-Grandfather: Charles Bedee born Toledo, OH 1887
G-G Grandfather: Lorn Bedee born Ohio 1865
G-G-G Grandfather: John Bedee ?? born Massachusetts

COMMENTS: I am not sure that I am of this lineage. [Eli Bedee] I am trying to find out more about John Bedee. Geographically, I seem to fit if John Bedee (above) was in fact, born in Massachusetts but I have seen no common ancestor of any of my known grandfathers.
