Birth: 1770
Cumbria, England
Death: Apr. 24, 1856
New York, USA

John BEEBY was christened Jan 22, 1771 in Wetheral, Cumberland, England. He and his wife Ann (Wannop) BEEBY and seven of their eight children (first child Nancy Anne BEEBY d. England abt 1800 at age 4), some of them already married, came to New York from England on the ship "Commet," arriving Aug 9, 1822. On the passenger list he gives his occupation as "farmer," but he had also worked as a shoemaker in 1798 in Wetheral.

He was one of the first pioneers in Central Square, New York. In 1831, John BEEBE (common alternate spelling) and his son Jacob BEEBE we two of the first vestrymen of Central Square's Trinity Episcopal Church built that year. In 1839, John BEEBE (with Robert Elliott, the town of Hastings's first wagonmaker as well as owner of a saw mill and a tannery) rebuilt a burned-down brick hotel originally built by Hasting Curtiss in 1823, which was a favorite stage station and town meeting place. After 1839 it was called Johnson House. A list of landlords and the original text of this information may be found in "Landmarks of Oswego County, New York, 1895."

Four of his sons are buried in Hillside Cemetery, Central Square, New York. I do not know the burial locations of his wife or his two daughters (Isabella Eliza BEEBY 1799-1841 and Anne BEEBY 1809-1836).

Non-Cemetery Burial
Specifically: I suspect he and his wife were buried on his farm in Oswego County, NY. He is not in Hillside Cemetery with his children.
