    • James Beeman - June 16, 1823 - July 11, 1894. Son of John and Catherine Beeman. Husband of Hester Ann Calkins Beeman. Married October 15, 1843.

      Newspaper Obituary - (date and newspaper unavailable) - Died in Richland, New York, July 11, 1894, James Beeman, aged 71 years and 4 months. Mr. Beeman was born at Sandy Creek. He was married to Miss Hester A. Calkins, of Pulaski, daughter of the late Russell A. Calkins. To them were born two children, a boy and a girl, who both died in childhood. They have lived in the towns of Richland, Albion and Oswego. Twelve years ago they went to Minnesota and remained for one year. Eleven years ago they moved to Richland and have lived here ever since. When living in Minetto, Oswego town, Mr. Beeman was converted under the pastorate of Rev. C. E. Beebe and united with the M. E. church of which he remained a member until his death. When he moved to Richland, eleven years ago, Mrs. Beeman's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Calkins, went to live with them and stayed for as long as they lived. Mrs. Calkins died seven years ago. Mr. Calkins died last year. He was an invalid for a long time. Mr. Beeman was seemingly indefatigable in his care of the almost centenarian, although his own health was failing. For the past six months he has been a great sufferer, never being able to lie down. A few weeks ago he was thought to be near death, but he rallied so much that he was on the street again. Last Wednesday morning he went to the barn, talked cheerfully to his hired man about the farm work, ate breakfast as usual and then sat down in his rocking chair. Mrs. Beeman noticed a change and tried to help him, but he died in a few minutes. His death seemed to be entirely painless. His funeral was attended from his late residence on Friday. The services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. W. H. Jago; interment in the South Richland cemetery. When such good men as Mr. Beeman die, and he was a good man, it seems as the loss was irreparable. He was a man of excellent judgment and so will be missed in the church, where he has held nearly, if not quite all the offices, and in the school board of which he has been a prominent member, and in the community. He was a good neighbor and friend. In his domestic relations his good qualities shone best. He was a kind son and brother, and a very affectionate husband. It is not often a couple are so united as he and his estimable wife. For fifty years they had walked side by side. Last October they celebrated their golden wedding. Mrs. Beeman takes his death very hard, although she is submissive, knowing the "Judge of all death right." She realizes, too, that the separation will not be long. "Let me die the death of the righteous and may my last end be like his." Mr. and Mrs. A. McChesney and Mr. and Mrs. Charles Beeman and son, of Syracuse, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Calkins, of New Haven, Mr. and Mrs. Rufus Calkins and Mr. and Mrs. George Calkins and son, of Mexico, and Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Calkins and sons, of South Albion, were at the funeral.
