Eli H. Beebe was born on 30 Jan 1758 in Waterbury, New Haven, Connecticut and died on 15 Sept 1836 in Warren Co., New York.
Please note that per a 'Family Data Record' on Ancestry we had originally indicated that Eli died in Cazenovia, Madison Co., New York, but in looking at a map of the counties of New York, it does not seem reasonable that he would be buried in Warren County and died in Madison County so I question Cazenovia as his place of death. I have chosen to leave his place of death as Warren Co. as Thomas Dunne originally listed.
Also, an Ancestry.com member indicated the following and I believe she is correct: "The Eli Beebe buried in Cazenovia, Madison, NY d. 18 Jul 1831 and was the son of Daniel & Hannah (Beebe) Beebe of New London. This Eli had a son Eli Jr who married Sally Ann Train, daughter of Isaac. Eli, son of Daniel, and Eli, son of Ira, are often confused. They are 4th cousins."
However, this Eli's date and place of birth is verified by several records including the American Genealogical Biographical Index, the Connecticut Town Birth Records pre-1870 (Barbour Collection) and a Sons of the American Revolution Membership Application (also several Family Data Collections) - all found on Ancestry.com
Eli was the son of Ira Beebe (1735-1792) and Jemima HICKOX (1736-1813). His siblings included:
Ursula (1761-1846), Achsah (1763- ), Armenia (1765-1831) and Borden (1767-1831).
Eli Beebe married Elizabeth BALDWIN (1757-1818) on 6 Apr 1778 in Waterbury, New Haven, Connecticut. This information was found in the 'Family Data Collection' on Ancestry.com
Elizabeth and Eli had at least four children:
Parley (1780-1846), Eli H. 'Jr.' (1782-1863), Charles (1788-1874) and Rhoda (1793-1851).
I am going to guess that they had more children, but as of this date, we do not have any other children listed for them.
I have searched for a pension record for Eli H. Beebe as I figured that he would have served during the American Revolutionary War. However, I cannot find any such record for him which really surprises me. The Beebe's have served in most, if not all, of the wars that the American colonies found herself in as well as the war to make America free and wars following.
However, I did just find an American Revolutionary War record for an Eli Beebe in Hooker's Regiment, Connecticut Militia, but I'm not sure if it's for this Eli Beebe. I'll have to research it a bit further to see if I can make a determination on that. I also found several records for individuals who served in 'Beebe's Regiment, Connecticut State Troops' but need to look into this further to determine who the Beebe was that commanded the regiment (looks like it was a Colonel Bezaleel Beebe who would have been related somehow to Eli's Beebe line). However, there were many men in the Beebe family who served and commanded - some reporting directly to General George Washington.
Part of the problem with researching the Beebe family line is that there were so many of them and father's tended to name their sons after their fathers and brothers and so on. It can get confusing and I want to make sure that I add the correct info to Eli's page.
As we find more information on Eli or his children, we will add it to his findagrave memorial page.
The link to Eli's mother's memorial page does not include all of the information related to her. Her name was Jemima HICKOX Beebe and she was born on 24 Nov 1736 in Waterbury, New Haven, Connecticut and died on 1 April 1813 in Waterbury, Hartford, Connecticut. Jemima was the daughter of Gideon Hickox (1705-1798) and Sarah UPSON (1715-1809).
Jemima's Hickox family had been in the American colonies since the very early days of colonization and are found in many of the old records, including old proprietorship town records.
Eli's Beebe line came to the American colonies in 1649 - he is a direct descendant of John Beebe who was born in 1600 in Broughton, Northamptonshire, England and died on 18 May 1650 on the voyage over to the colonies. John was on board the ship, Speedwell, and made out his will on the 18th of May in which he identified his children.
Two of John's sons, John and Samuel, had come over to the colonies in 1649 to prepare for the rest of the family to come over. Eli is descended from this son, John (1628-1708).
John (born in 1628) was a soldier for many years. He was sergeant of the trainband for twenty years and in 1675 was appointed as Ensign in Capt. George Denison's Company by the General Court, commanding 68 men who were raised in New London, Connecticut for the standing army and for Indian War (1676). He went on numerous expeditions against the Indians during the King Phillip's War to Rhode Island, Taunton, Massachusetts and Westfield on the road to Albany, New York. During King Philip's War in June 1676, he went on several expeditions against the Indians to Rhode Island, Taunton and beyond Westfield, MA. on the way to Albany. On one of these expeditions, the company ascended the Connecticut River to Northampton, where they joined Major Talcot with supplies of which the army was in urgent need. In 1690, he was commissioned a lieutenant.
**I was able to link Eli to his father, Ira Beebe, but cannot link Ira to his father's memorial as I did not add Ira's memorial page. However, I did create a memorial for Ira's father and his findagrave number is Memorial# 77835199 (Jonathan Beebe) and you'll find the link to Jonathan's father on his page.
*Many thanks to Thomas Dunne for transferring management of Elizabeth's page to me!
