Bement, Grachia Belle (1907 - 1974)
b. 15 APR 1907 in Badger, KS
d. 2 FEB 1974 in Hemet, Riverside Co., CA

father: Bement, Marion Sylvester(1884 - 1968)
mother: Lankford, Anna Pearl(1888 - 1986)
Grachia Belle Bement was born from a youthful relationship of her unmarried mother, Anna Pearl Lankford. Her mother married another young man, Sampson James Brough, shortly after Grachia's birth and grew up with the name Grachia Belle Brough. At age sixteen her mother provided Grachia with the facts concerning her birth. Her mother, Anna Pearl Lankford, enjoyed a long marriage with Sampson James Brough having nine children together.

Grachia had been ill for many years and lived as a semi-invalid the last years of her life. She suffered from asthma from the time she was a young woman. She died on February 2, 1974, at the Hemet Valley Hospital in Hemet, California, and was buried at the Perris Valley Cemetery in Perris, California on February 4, 1974.

Through the many years of illness, Grachia never complained and never lost here sense of humor. In the hospital, a few days before she died, she was too weak to speak and seemed semi-conscious; but when the nurse announced over the loud speaker that visiting hours were over, Grachia made a face and stuck her tongue out at the loud speaker. She had all her loved ones around her and didn't want them to leave.

Grachia always had a quick wit along with her sense of humor. She composed many poems throughout her life, several of which were dedicated to her mother who she loved so very much. Grachia loved her family with a fierce loyalty. There is nothing that she wouldn't have done for "one of hers." Her grandchildren were very precious to her.

Before her health started to fail, she worked very hard as a farmer's wife which was not an easy job. In 1937, she worked at a tomato canning factory in Gentry, Arkansas to help make ends meet. At the same time, she helped on the farm with all the chores and cooked for the men that helped with the crops.

Around 1944, they moved to Mesa, Arizona for Grachia's health. While they lived there, she and James worked in a laundromat. They didn't like the extremely hot weather, so they moved on to Lynwood, California after one year in Arizona. Grachia's parents and a sister were living in Lynwood by this time.

Although Grachia suffered from bad health most of her life, she was a very strong person in every other way. She endured pain with no complaints and gave of herself completely to her family. Grachia even prepared for her impending death for several years. She wrote her own obituary, picked her cemetery, burial clothes, hymns, etc. Her sense of humor followed her to the grave, as she had written that she wanted to be placed in the casket on her side because she never could breathe very well lying on her back!

James and Grachia had moved to Sun City, California a year before her death. She wanted to move there because her two children lived in Canyon Lake about seven miles away. It made her feel more comfortable to know that James would be close to his children after she was gone.

Hannah Bement was the first wife of Calvin Russ. He married second, Ann Gage; married third, Mary Fay. He was suddenly killed at the granite ledge at East Bethel, Vt. He went as a spectator when the Vermont Central R. R. was being built through Royalton. As the huge crane was swung back the heavy shears dropped on him and killed him instantly. The statement in the following notice is vouched for as true by several members of the family:

"SINGULAR FATALITY.--M. C. Gage, of Royalton, states that some years ago Matthias Rust, of Tunbridge, while carrying wood into his house fell and expired instantly; a few years after, the wife of Calvin Rust (son of Matthias) dropped to the floor while about her ordinary duties, and died instantly; the second wife of Calvin died after an illness of only forty-eight hours; on the 5th inst. Calvin Rust went to see the operation of raising stone from a quarry in East Bethel, and was instantly killed by the falling of a part of the machinery; and on the 12th inst. Mrs. Ainsworth, (sister of Calvin Rust) was riding in a sleigh down a hill, with a loaded ox-sled in front and another in the rear; the oxen in the rear were unable to hold back the load, and ran upon the sleigh and forward team, by which concussion Mrs. A. was killed."--Montpelier (Vt.) Watchman.

Bement, Harley (1797 - 1882)
b. 1797 in Great Barrington, Berkshire Co., MA
d. 1 MAR 1882 in Allendale Twp., Ottawa Co., MI

father: Bement, Bingham(1786 - 1836)
HARLEY BEMENT enlisted for five years, at about the age of 14, and served during the War of 1812 in Capt. Hugh "Henry" R. Martin's Company, 13th U.S. Infantry at "Skenactady" New York, commanded by Colonel Christie. Records indicate service in the battles of St. Johns Canada, Little York (later Toronto) under General Pike, Fort George, 2nd Battle of Queenstown, Burlington Heights, Eldridge's Defeat, Wilkerson's Defeat and Plattsburgh. He served as a second sergeant and was honorably discharged July 1815 by a proclamation of the President of the United States while home on furlough at Onondaga, New York.

In or about the year 1832, he left Bath, Steuben County, New York, and settled for a time at New Haven, Macomb County, Michigan, later moving on to Ingram County, Michigan and became one of the early pioneers of Central Michigan. The family existence was primitive with Harley, an excellent hunter, often providing game for food. Michigan was yet a Territory and their nearest neighbor was four miles away. The area Indians were harmless but given to dishonesty. Apparently he was quite the "Old Boy", often very ornery and few got along very well with him.

In June 1839 Harley purchased 40 acres in Putnam Township, Livingston County, and sold it in October same, for a tidy $400 profit. In 1840 they resided in Handy Township, Livingston County where he helped build the first sawmill. In 1844 he owned 80 acres in Leroy Township, and purchased additional land in 1847. Sometime before 1850 his family made a western mover to Georgetown, Ottawa County, where he farmed and lumbered. For eight years prior to the Civil War he ably administered the law as a Justice of the Peace. While at Georgetown, Harley and Eliza were devout members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Eliza died in a disastrous home fire in June or October of 1856. He then married, 27 Feb 1857, Mrs. Anna M. (Wood) Parker, the widow of Ezekiel W. Parker of Ohio. As a resident of Alaiedon Township, Ingham County in 1858 he purchased 40 acres, selling it later that year. In June of 1858 his son Harley C. Bement married Anna's daughter (his step sister) Marinda Parker at Georgetown.

On 19 Jan 1863, in his middle sixties but apparently in excellent health and residing at Georgetown, he enlisted in the Civil War at Grand Rapids. He was assigned to Company F, 7th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry (Capt. Mann) and served as a Ferrier, later changed to Private's rank, in charge of horses in transit from Michigan. On 26 Mar 1863 after an extremely tough winter camp at Washington, D.C., he was admitted to the Washington Columbian Hospital suffering from diabetic complications and diarrhea. On 12 May 1863, at the age of 66, he was discharged from that hospital and the army for disability, suffering from bronchitis and chronic diarrhea, with the comment that he "should not have been enlisted".

His last two decades are cloaked in mystery. Apparently he never recovered from his war exposures and privations and was unable to do a days work thereafter. His daughter Hannah indicated that he was forced to break up housekeeping because of his Civil War disability. According to the 1870 Census records, at age 74, he resided at Leroy with his son Silas; Anna's whereabouts then are unknown. In the 1880 Census (age 86, MA/CT), and an old record book, he resided at least three months in the Ottawa County Poorhouse, and was listed as a Pauper. Anna later applied for his military pension, being turned down more than once, but finally receiving $8 per month a few months before her own death.

Little documentation is available on Harley Bement in the original chronicles. Almost all of the preceding documentation was gathered by Spencer Leigh BeMent of Ann Arbor, Michigan who is believed to be Harley's second great-grandson. He indicated that little was known about Harley's parents and the early facts about him are vague and inconsistent. His birth era and the naming of his children provide some evidence that he is from the Samuel/Silas line. He may be an undeclared last son of Samuel or the first child of Bingham, or one of several other assumptions that are still being explored.

Horace Bement married (1) Sarah Ann Graham with whom he had at least three children, one son and two daughters. He married (2) Sarah "Sally" Brown in 1835 and they had five children, two sons and three daughters.

He was born in Ashfield, Massachusetts, and later moved to Ohio and then to Kentucky. He was probably deceased before May 30, 1873, at the age 81 years. He left home with a load of tobacco on his way to Louisville, Kentucky to sell his crop and was never heard from again. The family assumed someone must have witnessed the sale and waylayed him on the return trip home. He was married twice. After Horace disappeared (2) Sally later married James Thompson.

On January 20, 1837, he sold oxen colts, farm equipment, kitchen furniture and tools for $75.00 to Ezekiel Brown. On March 5, 1840, Horace sold 90 acres of land in Lincoln County, Kentucky, on the waters of Buck Creek and Dicks River for $50.00 to William Foard and Calvin Norris.

Various census and other information was gathered by Betty Rice as follows:

1830 Kentucky Census - Horace and wife (Sarah Ann Graham) were living with the widow of John Graham and Sarah Ann's siblings, probably in Lincoln Co., KY. In 1837 Horace sold items to Ezekiel Brown, who may have been the brother or father of his second wife, Sarah "Sally" Brown.

1840 Kentucky Census - Lincoln County, Horace is listed with two sons under five, probably Edmund and Ezekiel (from second marriage), and one male 15-20, probably Reuben (from first marriage). There were two females listed ages 5-10, probably Julie Ann and Margaret (from first marriage) and two females 10-15, possibly Sarah and Emma (from first marriage) and one female, age 20-30, probably his second wife, Sarah "Sally" Brown.

1850 Kentucky Census - Lincoln County, Horace has two daughters ages 5-10 and two males under 5. (Note: this information does not coincide with the birth ages of some of his known children)

HOWARD BEMENT was graduated from Lansing High School in 1892, at the age of seventeen. During his senior year he was President of the Student Christian Association, founder and editor-in-chief of the student annual, "The Oracle", and President of his class. Entering the Department of Literature and the Arts of the University of Michigan, he completed the work for his degree at the end of the first semester of his senior year, and was given his diploma, with the degree of Ph.B. in June 1896. While in college he was a member of the Eta Psi Fraternity, member of the Sophomore "Prom" and Junior Ball Committee, and member of the Freshman and of the University Glee Clubs.

Upon completing the university work, he returned to Lansing, where he entered the accounting department in charge of collections of the manufacturing business founded by his grand-father, Edwin Bement, conducted as a corporation under the name of E. Bement + Sons. In 1898, after the re-organization of the business, he became Assistant Secretary and Treasurer; and in 1903, upon the death of his father, he succeeded him as Treasurer of the Company.

At the age of ten, he united with the Plymouth Congregational Church at Lansing, and upon his return from college he at once became active in church work. With a friend, Marquis Easton, a Chicago lawyer (1913), he organized and for nearly ten years conducted a Bible class for boys. This soon had an enrollment of sixty or more, and succeeded in holding many boys for continued church activity who had formerly drifted from the church and Bible school influence. In 1903 he was elected a deacon in the church. He was also elected a trustee of Olivet, the State Congregational College, located at Olivet, Michigan, and was also a member of the State Committee on Sunday School work.

After the suspension of the E. Bement's Sons in 1904, he went West with his family, spending some time in Denver, and later going to Palo Alto, California. While there he carried on graduate work in English at Stanford University, also attending lectures at the University of California, at Berkeley. At the close of the year he was called to The Hill School, Pottstown, Michigan whither he went as Master of English in the fall of 1905. In 1906 Olivet College granted him the degree of A.M. In 1912 he was made head of the Department of English at The Hill School, a position that he still occupied about 1913.

In the course of his professional duties he edited "Selected Essays of Charles Lamb," for publication by D. Appleton and Company in their list of "Twentieth Century Text Books" (1910). He also published a sketch of the life of John Meigs, formerly Head Master of The Hill School (New York, 1912) and some occasional verse.

Emily (Smith) Bement died about a week after the birth of her second child most likely the result of complications from child birth. Dr. Bement died a little over two years later than his wife, leaving two young children, Emily Evelina Bement (about 4 1/2 years old) and Jared Smith Bement (about 2 years, 4 months old). Both children must have been taken in and adopted by one of their mother's relatives as records indicate that Emily Evelina Bement's name was changed to Emily Bement Smith, and Jared Smith Bement's name was changed to Henry Smith Nash.

JASPER BEMENT was a staunch abolitionist, and helped many slaves on to Canada in the old days, sometimes keeping them for several nights, until he could conceal them in the bottom of his sleigh or wagon, taking them at night to the next station or friend's post. He was a wholesale and retail merchant, fitting out pedlars' teams, which travelled over the country at the time, with dry goods and groceries; and was also a manufacturer of essences of all kinds. He filled acceptably various offices, within the gift of the town, was justice of the peace for many years, and representative to the General Court of Assembly of Massachusetts in 1845. After serving for some years as a deacon in the Congregational Church he became a Methodist and contributed substantially to the church of his adoption. After his death his beautiful homestead and estate were sold, in 1865, to Charles Eliot Norton, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, whose daughter still retained the place in 1913.

JESSE BEMENT was born at Northfield, Litchfield Co., Connecticut on 6 Aug 1740. He responded to the call for soldiers for the expedition against Crown Point and the reduction of Quebec in 1759, and is on Captain Elijah Smith's muster roll, dated Boston, 8 Feb 1760, as having been in service from 25 Apr to 25 Nov of the prior year. The year 1759 was a memorable one. Of the fall of Quebec, John Richard Green has said, that it was one of the three victories of the Seven Years War that "determined for ages to come the destinies of mankind", since, "with the triumph of Wolfe on the Heights of Abraham began the history of the United States."

After peace was declared, Jesse married and settled at Brimfield, another of Massachusetts' frontier towns. When the storm of the Revolution broke at Lexington, Jesse Bement enlisted from Brimfield, 29 April 1775 for service in Captain Joseph Thompson's company, Colonel Timothy Danielson's Regiment of Massachusetts militia. Later, he entered the Continental Army, Sixth Regiment, under Colonel Thomas Nixon, Captain Benjamin Haywood's company, and served from 24 Apr 1777 to 31 Dec 1779 (Source: Mass. Sailors and Soldiers in the Revolution; Volume 1, 923). His wife, whose maiden name has not been ascertained, and himself were living at Brimfield in1790.
