Mrs. Elenor F. Beebee
Henrietta, O., ____ 15 (1858), ae. 41. She was the daughter of Daniel Beebee, of West Hartwick, Otsego Co., ______, sister of the Rev. Albert Beebee, missionary to the Armenians in Turkey, and granddaughter of the late Rev. Dr. Chauncey Lee, of Colebrook, Ct. The same feeling of devotion which led her brother to abandon home, seemed to actuate her in all her conduct, and wherever the spiritual or temporal good of those around her demanded that the Christian should go, there she was found. Quiet, gentle, and unostentatious, yet firm and decided, her whole character was like the genial warmth of spring mingled with the grave aspect of autumn.

Samuel Braman
Samuel Braman was born at Mendon, Ontario, Canada County, in the state of New York, January 18 1821, and died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. N.A. Knapp, January 14 1908, at the age of 87 years. He came to Ohio with his parents when but a small boy, made his home in Rochester, Lorain County, and here spent the years of an extended, yet peaceful, even tempered and well nigh blameless life. In his earlier days, while engaged as a teamster in the employ of Anyones, a business man at Rochester Station, he became familiar with a large extent of the country, and made many acquaintances as far north as the shores of Lake Erie. But he outdistanced a majority of these friends in the ace for life, for, in a recent conversation, while he named many old residents of Huron Village, he did not name one who is at present a resident of that Village. He was united in marriage with Belinda Webb, February 14 1847. Three daughters were given to them of whom one died in infancy and two, Mrs. N. A. Knapp and Mrs. H.A. Barnes, together with two grandchildren, and one gr eat grandchild, two brothers, J.A. Braman of Cleveland, Ohio and J. W. Braman of Auburn, Kansas, are among the immediate relatives who survive. Mrs Braman preceded him to the better world some nine years and passed away January 23 1899. While in heart and conduct beyond doubt, a Christian all his days, he did not make a public avowal of his faith until somewhat late in life. Under the inspiration of a special revival meeting held at the M.E. Church in the month of April 1887, the evangelist, Mrs. R.J. Trego, being associated with the then pastor, Reverand G.M. Knapp, Mr. and Mrs. Braman were among some 60 persons, who publicly professed conversion. On the 24th of April they joined the Church, and on June 26th, along with 20 others, they received Christian baptism. In this new life they both remained steadfast to the end. While still in the prime of his life, Mr. Braman's eyesight began to fail and though the best medical advise was secured and the best skill was tested, the light of life continued steadily and surly to go out. Those were trying years. This gradual fading of the earthly vision went on until t he last gleam of earthly vision died out forever, and for at least 30 years he was totally blind. It may be confidently asserted that no one ever heard him murmur on account of his lot during all those years, his one regr et being the necessity which made him a charge to others. Even when he bec ame entirely helpless, this seemed to be his only anxiety, while in relati on to his own privation he made light of it. Surely the purer light of a higher life must have been shining in his soul. Of Samuel Braman it may be said once and always. "He was a good man" and even his death, "bringeth good tidings". Of him it may be said as truth fully as ever of any man." He had not an enemy in all the world." He outlived his own generation, but he has set before this, and every age, a noble example of resignation, which must be to us an abiding consolation." Behold we count them happy that endure [unknown; Jan 1908]
