Dr. BeeBee was a half-sister of Kate (Daggett) Hiscock - they have the same father, Nathaniel Daggett. Dr. Beebee and Kate Hiscock are both buried in the same lot. The Lot Monument is engraved with "BeeBee" on one side and "Hiscock" on the other side.
Harriette was first a teacher. She taught in a country school, kindergarten thru high school. Her younger half-sister, Kate, was one of her students. Harriette married a widower Elisha Beebee who was 20 years older. They were married in 1864 and lived in Albion, New York. They had a son named Burt. One night Burt was taken ill with the croup. Harriette was frantic, called her husband to get up and go for the doctor. He said, "You are nervous; croup is nothing to worry about." The baby died. Harriette felt she had nothing to live for, nothing to do. She wanted to be able to take care of people who were ill, so she entered medical school. She setup an office practice in Minneapolis, Minnesota, so she could be near her sister Kate Hiscock.
Her office was on Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis, the sign on the door read, "Dr. H. S. BeeBee." The office had a reception room and an operating room. The back rooms were living quarters. She was a homeopathic doctor, which in those days meant she treated diseases by giving minute doses. Although she chiefly had an office practice, she made house calls when necessary.
Elisha Beebee died in 1891, and Harriette took his body to Albion, New York to be buried with his first wife. The trip was exhausting, and upon returning Harriette told her sister Kate, "When I die, I want to be buried in your lot with your family." Harriette was closely involved in her sister's family and the two girls, Harriette and Jennie Hiscock. They knew her as "Aunt Hattie." When her health began to fail in 1908, Harriette Beebee moved to live with the Hiscocks. She died in November of 1908, the funeral was held in the Hiscock home.
