Lucy Phelps Bement is listed in the 1880 census of Cuyahoga County, Ohio under the family of George and Nancy (Bement) Harrison.

The following is a transcript of a four page letter written in 1839 by Levi Button and his wife, Lucy (Bement) Button, of Suffield, Connecticut to her sister Mrs. George (Nancy Bement) Harrison of Dover, Cuyahoga County, Ohio. At the time the letter was written Lucy was 24 years old and had been married to Levi for four years. The letter would indicate they also had a daughter, probably by the name of Rhoda, who was at least 2-3 years old. At the date of the letter Nancy was but 20 years old, married about 11 months, and about four months along in the pregnancy of her first child. The original letter was comprised of excellent penmanship, but not well punctuated. For the purposes of this translation punctuation marks and paragraphs were added where deemed necessary in order to provide the reader in a clearer flow of information. The original of the letter remains in possession of the Harrison family, this copy being provided by John A. Harrison of Richland, Michigan (Dec. 1997)

December 24th, 1839

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I confess that I have been a long time answering your letter, but I assure you it has not been for a want of a desire, it has been purely for want of time. I am teaching school this winter in our district and do my own chores and have no one to help me. Sister Nancy, I want you to fling open the doors, seat yourself in an arm chair, get a camphor bottle ready to apply to your nose as I am about announce to you such news that without suitable precautions I fear you might faint.

Concluding that you have taken the above mentioned precautions I shall proceed with my story. Do not think it is anything that has happened. Now I am going to speak in the future tense. But what say you is coming now a miracle. No something more of possible than that, but what say you can exceeds a miracle . I tell you Sister Nancy, Uncle Calvin is to be married New Years Day. Perhaps you wonder why I think this exceeds a miracle will you. No blind, halt, lame or withered person that we read of in Scriptures that was healed could have been half as happy as he is. He is lost in a transport of delight in anticipating the pleasures before him. His face carries the appearance of superhuman bliss. His teeth have almost become weather beaten by continual exposure to the atmosphere. His imagination lives in Elysian fields. He seems almost to be in the paradise of Mohammad in company with one of the Houri of the celestial world. His happiness is too great to be contained, he mentions it every time I see him. He was talking to Aunt Lorel (???) the other day about it. She said to him that he had lived single long enough, that it was about time for him to get married. He said that he thought he was about old enough now to realize the enjoyment. He told Lucy that he never took such a shine to any girl before as he did to Nancy and he guessed he had not told any news for he supposed we knew by his actions he liked her pretty well. He says (to tell us) that if she did get married first them that came ____ get everyone a ______. But I should think by his actions that he was expecting more than a ______. I should think that he expects 10___ at least. His intendeds name is Chastina Bagley (born about 17 Dec 1822), she was 17 years old last week. But I must leave this subject although I do it with great reluctance for here is a place where a person professed of a sympathizing heart loves to dwell no matter in this case if he can not mourn with those that mourn, if he can rejoice with those that do rejoice. He can here find a subject of unalloyed consolation.

I will now tell you a little about Elder Gow, the man that stripped himself naked and found a 2 dollar bill in the seat of his trousers at our house one day last June. Soon after you left here he went to Macedon (town name) to settle his church difficulty. While there one of his creditors requested him to pay a debt which he held against him. He told him he would call the next morning and settle it. The next morning, Elder Gow was numbered among the missing. The man was so much enraged at his mean_____ that followed him to Darien (Ct.), attached his horse wagon harness. Gow prevailed on Mr. Cotwell, a Baptist brother to accept the property. Gow finally prevailed on him to let him use the property from Darien either to pay the debt or deliver the property. Previous to the day of sale, but was instead of performing for his engagement, he exchanged the horse for another and a few days before the execution (of the debt) ran out, took his goods, boxed them up tight, put himself, wife, children, hens and what other things he could aboard of his wagon, fastened (locked) the house and shoved off. Mr. Cotwell went to Batavia, took the horse, broke open the house, took all the things he (Gow) had left and sold them at an auction at Mr. Chapin's. I wish you could have been there and seen the things. There was his wives gown, petticoat and shift just as she crawled out of them and many other similar things dirty and some of them ragged, there was 2 beds sold, one of them showed plainly that his wife or some other female had slept on it and I should think without sheets.

Cotwell has been sued for taking the horse, or rather Wm. Bougton, the constable, the man that swapped with Gow and got the horse, claims that he came by the horse honestly. Cotwell, on the other hand, claims that Gow had no business to put away the horse. How it will eventually be settled I can not tell. Cotwell will lose considerable by the scoundrel anyway, and somebody has got to lose the horse. Elder Parker called on me today. He has drawn up a paper stating Gows character and was obtaining signatures to it. He is going to send it to the church at Macedon and have him published in the papers as a scoundrel. I bought his saddle at auction and if you wish to be avenged on him, and consider it any object, you can come down here and ride his old saddle.

Sister, in your last you informed me you had a bad cold. I fear your cold will not thaw out and brake up under some months at least. I presume Lake Erie will thaw out first, but I must stop as it very late and I can hardly see to read what I have written. I cut sausage meat and helped Lucy make sausages before I commenced writing so you must excuse all mistakes for I have written in great haste.

Brother George put away (killed) that horse I had when you was here and got one that would make your ____ black well. She is a first rate mare, I got $10 to boot. My brother Alexander has been here and stayed with me about 10 days. I took him and Lucy + Rhoda and went + visited our relations south. We enjoyed ourselves well while he staied here but when he arrived at home he found (about one line is unreadable due to a tear in fold of stationery) and buried in his absence. Write Soon.

Yours respectfully, Levi M. Button

Lucy claims the rest of the sheet. You will perceive that Levi had a great flow of words by the length of his epistle. If you could sit down with this forenoon I should like it.

Rhoda and I are alone unless folks are gone on a journey. I have a great deal to say to you and but little room. I went to Mrs. Chapen's yesterday to Christmas in the evening. Uncle C(alvin) and his intended were home, and Henrietta. I wish you could have been here often. C(alvin) was gone. Levi read his letter to H(entrietta). I think it is a doubtful case about Henrietta. Being a man he does not put up things lately at all. Henrietta begins to think it is through, if that is the case, he is a mean fellow.

Osmith (???) Holcomb is married and gone to Ohio. Hiram Jones is married and living where Mr. Clark lived when you left. Marvin Long has gone to Michigan. Mary Scott to Ohio and Warner Broughton has followed her...has gone to get in teaching singing. Mr. Styles has been out to Dover after his sister. Cody, her husband is dead. He says he went within a mile of you. He started one morning to go and see you but it was rather wet and he did not feel very well so he gave it up. Mr. Judson has left _____ and gone (to) missionary on the canal. His wife makes it her home at Mr. _________. Levi has sold him his rifle and bought his _____ desk and bookcase and a set of chairs and swapped his old wagon with him for a gig (carriage). I made me a plaid shawl, very handsome, and a coverlet and carpet for my bed room and Mr. Button a suit of grey clothes and sold flannel and bought him suit of black broad cloth. I have been sick with a cough so that I have not been out to meeting or anywhere else for 2 months excepting to Mr. Chapen. My cough is well now but I am afraid to go out much for fear of taking (relapse). The doctor says I must be very careful. We had a letter from Susan last week. She got home and is making cigars. They mentioned they had a gentleman from East Hartford to the spend Thanksgiving. She went to Hartford to a ball Friday and came back Saturday and went to the Shakers to meeting Sunday. Well done, Susan. I do not know the gentleman's name. Rhoda says I want you to tell Aunt Nancy I love her very much and loves to sleep with her. Tell Uncle George I love him too and wish he would let Aunt Nancy come here and live again and get her ________ (rest of paragraph missing)

Write again and let me know how your cold (is getting along). Henrietta sends love to you. I must draw my letter to close for want of room this from your affectionate sister.

In 1909 Lyle was a laborer in Grand Rapids and later was a waiter at the Square Meal Cafe. On 2 Sep 1918 he was inducted into the Army, CO.14, 160th Depot Brigade (Private) and was discharged 29 Jan 1919 at Camp Custer on demobilization. While he was stationed at Camp Grant in or near Rockford, Illinois he met and married Iris Finks. He became a baker in a commercial pie bakery. About a year after his son Roy Jean was born, Lyle left for parts unknown and may have resided at Muskegon Heights, Michigan.

The first being 6 Apr 1833 and the second, 9 May 1833; both in Charlemont, Franklin Co., MA. She later married (2) George Hall, her sister's husband. Daniel sold 80 acres of land in Ingham County, Michigan to his father-in-law, Samuel, for $400. In 1844 this land was left to Rufus Bement.

Bement, Mary Edith (1875 - 1949)
b. 21 NOV 1875 in Millerton, Tioga Co., PA
d. 1949 in Painted Post, Steuben Co., NY

mother: Rockwell, Mary Elizabeth(1836 - 1911)
Mary Edith Bement lived in the Roseville, Pennsylvania area as a child. She went to Mansfield Normal School and then got a job teaching in a one-room schoolhouse on Meads Creek Road. He husband, Frank Short, was in the farming and lumber business on Meads Creek Road as was his father. They met there and were married in 1895.

They moved to Galeton, Pennsylvania around 1900 to 1905. The house that the Short Family lived in Galeton was large one with a barn in back. An addition was added after it was sold in 1917 for $500. It sold cheaply as the lumber business folded up and there was no demand for housing. The house was viewed in October 1984 and appeared to be in exceptionally good shape and repair.

Frank worked for a hardwood flooring company in charge of the boiler and machinery. The lumbering business had pretty well stripped the hills of trees in that area and the company made a move to Lake Placid about 1917. He wanted to go with the company, but Edith resisted because of a lack of good schools in the Adirondack area. About that time, Frank came to Coopers Plains, New York to attend his brother's funeral. He heard that Ingersoll-Rand was hiring, so he applied and got a job. The family moved on the Galeton, Knoxville + Addison Railroad. The furniture had to be moved by horse and buggy from Addison, New York to Painted Post, New York, having been transported on the same train on which they traveled.

Frank started at Ingersoll-Rand and later transferred to Corning Glass in the millwright shop and then transferred to the tin shop. He left the Glass Works in 1926 and did custom tinsmith work, such as eaves, troughs, etc. He had a workshop for a while on the second floor of a building housing Ingalls Hardware in Painted Post. His son, Jim, was particularly fond of a metal airplane that his father made him. Frank then had a workshop in the garage in back of the family home which had originally been a dairy.

Edith started a Larkin Store about 1925 in the living room of the house in Painted Post. This was later moved into a large two story addition built on the back of the house by Frank. This was constructed about 1925-26. The business was discontinued about 1943. The store was torn down and the house sold in 1946.

MARY JANE BEMENT spent her girlhood in Jackson, Michigan. She moved with her father to Clyde, Ohio when she was sixteen years of age, her mother having died when she was only seven years old.

She began teaching school in Clyde at an early age and was an instructor there until 1879. She was a life long member of the Methodist Church in which she was an active worker. She was also a member of the Progress Club and had entertained the club only a few days before her death. (Source: James Arthur Reitz, August 1997)

Mary Jane Bement may be the daughter of Anson Bement (1795-1875). He married a second time after the early death of his first wife and started a second family which included Mary Jane Bement. The question comes in with the fact that the records indicate she was born 1843 (vs. 1850 for this Mary Jane); which indicates that she died before 1860.

father: Bement, Edmund(1713 - 1790)
mother: Meakins, Abigail(1722 - 1806)
MEAKINS BEMENT, by deed of 30 Oct 1765, received land from his father "in Hartford on the east side of the Great River, with a mansion house and shop standing thereon." There he spent his life, a much respected and useful citizen in the community. By occupation he was a saddler and is said to have made saddles for the American army during the Revolution. He owned extensive lands along what is now Burnside Avenue, East Hartford, and was a substantial man of his day, one of the five men in the town who owned a chaise in 1800, an indication of his conspicuous wealth. His homestead, still standing in 1913, had a Gambel roof with dormer windows, and is a typical old-fashioned mansion house. His will, of 25 Feb 1826, proved 9 March following, disposed of a large estate, his wife receiving one-third thereof and the dividends of fifty shares in the Phoenix Bank. His descendants have adhered to the original spelling of their surname - Beaumont (Source: History of East Hartford, Conn.)

His well-preserved (c. 1920) grave stone in the old churchyard at East Hartford spelled his first name 'Makins', though the name is indifferently written Meakins, Meekins, or Makins on the Town Records. Meakins appears to be his mothers' maiden name.

Nancy Anna Bement had many trying experiences as a faithful mother. The second daughter, Lucy, a lovely child of two years was fatally scalded. Another daughter, Julia, was born only to die in few short weeks. The youngest child, Anna, died from choking. Later, in full manhood, a son, Charles Byron, was instantly cut off in the midst of a prosperous career, resulting from the kick of a horse in his chest.

She never rallied from the last shock. To one who spoke of her great fortitude and patience after 14 years of illness, she said, "We must always be patient whatever comes and say, Thy will be done." Her grandsons were bearers at her funeral, John Chapman, Clifford Maynard, Dr. Charles Byron Post, Dr. Foster Post, Mrs. Ada Post Chapman, and one son, George, two sisters, Mrs. Julia Bement Clark, Mrs. Miranda Bement Rodier, two brothers, Silas Bement and Frank N. Bement." (Source: Chronicles of the Bement Family in America; 1928, p. 181q, xix) _____________________

After their marriage Nancy and Samuel resided on a farm until 1860 when Samuel established a store in Centerville, having previously engaged in business with his brother-in-law, Julius A. Rodier. Later he established S. Post + Son, a general merchandise store. (Source: Supplement to the Chronicles of the Bement Family in America, Nov. 1992, p. 181b; Spencer L. BeMent, Ann Arbor, Michigan)

Nancy and George came to Coe Ridge, North Olmsted Township, Ohio immediately after their marriage and settled on a 200 acre tract. He set up a sawmill on his wooded tract and later constructed brick kilns to make his own bricks. In 1865 he build a red brick house on Lorain Road that survived until at least 1966. In the early days it served as a half-way house for travelers. Nancy is listed in Women in the Western Reserve before 1840. Her sister, Elizabeth, married George's brother Justus. (Source: Spencer L.

NATHANIEL BEMENT, born 8 Feb 1778 at Suffield, Connecticut, died 11 May 1848 at 70 years of age at LaGrange, Ohio; married Sarah Hastings (1782-1875) in 1801/02 at Greenfield, Ohio; daughter of Joseph and Annis (Munn) Hastings. Sarah lived to 93 years of age.

As early as 1805 Nathaniel removed from Suffield, Connecticut to Lowville, New York and later Manchester, Ohio. About 1835 he removed to LaGrange, Ohio where, by deed of 2 May 1842, he constituted his brother Titus of Chautauqua County, New York as his attorney to receive his portion of his mother Mary's estate at Suffield, Connecticut. Sarah resided in LaGrange until her death. Children of Nathaniel and Sarah (Hastings) Bement were: Nathan Wooster Bement, Sarah Bement, Levi Hiram Bement, Nathaniel W. Bement, Harriet Bement, and Edmund Collins Bement.

Note: Joseph Hastings (died 21 Jun 1806) married Annis Munn (1744-1815) in 1762. Joseph's ancestry traces to Thomas Hastings who came from Ipswich, England on the ship Elizabeth in 1634, the very ship that brought William and John Beaumont the next year. In April 1651 Thomas married Susan Cheney, the daughter of William Cheney of Roxbury, Mass. Annis's ancestry traces to Benjamin Munn (1683-1779) and Thankful Nims (1684-1746).
