from the Rutland Daily Herald, May 4, 1917:
Word was received by Rutland friends of the death at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon at his home in Cambridge, Mass., of George W. Beaman, a retired paymaster in the United States navy, member of a family prominent in the life of Rutland long before it became a city and one closely associated for many years with a number of the older residents here. At the time of Mr. Beaman's death his title was pay inspector, the highest rank in that department of the government service. He was about 80 years old.
His wife, Rebecca Goldsmith Beaman, oldest daughter of the late Dr. Middletown Goldsmith of this city, a surgeon distinguished throughout Vermont, survives him, as does a daughter, Mrs. Walter Burke of Cambridge, and two sons, William Beaman of Washington D.C., and Middletown Beaman of New York city. Mr. Beaman also leaves a sister, Mrs. Thomas J. Sutherland of Chicago, and a brother, Jenks Beaman of Orange, N.J.
Mr. Beaman had lived in Cambridge since the time of his retirement, about 17 years ago. Previous to that time, while he was at sea, his wife and family resided in this city at intervals.
Mr. Beaman's father, George H. Beaman, lived in Center Rutland many years ago and the falls there were known at one time as Beaman Falls. He built and lived in what is now an old wooden house near Evergreen cemetery on the road to West Rutland. Mr. Beaman also had relatives in Poultney.
The funeral services and burial will be in Cambridge.
Before he joined the Navy, he served 3 months as a Private in the 3rd Regiment, Missouri U.S. Reserve Corps.
