Married (2) Waldo G. Beaman, landscape artist. She traveled extensively promoting his work. She was known by more than one name at various times. Early in life, she was simply Nellie Rand. Ellen Maria appears to have been the name she used as an adult and is the name recorded on her headstone, however the Rand family genealogy published by Florence O. Rand in 1898 styled it Eileen-Marie. Since her second marriage occurred before the birth of most of her grandchildren, she was known to subsequent generations of the family as Gramma Beaman. Having wed and given birth at an early age, she lived to see her sons become grandfathers.
