Jeremiah Waite was born 16 Dec 1742 at Athol, Franklin Co., Massachusetts and died 16 Mar 1817. He was the great grandson of Benjamin Waite, the Hero of Hatfield, whose appealing letter from Albany to his friends and relatives at Hatfield was forwarded to the Governor and Council of Massachusetts, who, immediately issued an order that on or before the day previously appointed as a fast, the letter be publicly read in all the churches of Massachusetts for the quickening of the work of charity.

Though well known, the story may bear a brief repetition. In September of 1677, just two years after the first destruction of Deerfield, and the massacre at Bloody Brook, a party of Indians from Canada fell upon Hatfield, killing nine persons, wounding four and carrying away seventeen, after which Deerfield was attacked and several of its settlers were also taken into captivity. Then began the terrible march to Canada and the pawning of the captives to the French - for rum!

On the 24th of October , accurate information of the captives reached Hatfield, and Benjamin Waite and Stephen Jennings, whose wife and children were of the number, started upon their work of ransom. Obtaining a commission from the Governor of Massachusetts, they proceeded under great discouragements and hardships to Canada, where, at Sorrell and Vicinity, they found all the captives, save three, who had been slain. Two children had been born, a daughter to Benjamin Waite, named Canada, and a daughter to Stephen Jennings, called Captivity.

Through the aid of the French governor all were ransomed, under a promise of a payment of two hundred pounds to the Indians, and having accomplished this, the two men, in the early spring of 1678, started homeward with their redeemed families and friends. Albany was reached on the 22nd of May and a trusty messenger sent to Hatfield with a letter explaining what had happened. After five more days at Albany, the party walked twenty miles to Kinderhook, where horses and provision awaited them. At Westfield they were met by friends and wanderers and reached Hatfield amid great rejoicing. Jeremiah Waite resided in that part of Hatfield, which in 1771 became the separate town of Whately, Massachusetts. (Source: History of Whately, Massachusetts, f. 275).

Ray Bement is listed in numerous versions of the Brøderbund World Tree including Volume 9, Pedigrees #3830, 3831; Volume 10, Pedigrees #4528, 4529, 4530; Volume 13, Pedigree #3596; Volume 15, Pedigree #3529; and Volume 22, Pedigree 3609 as submitted by Helen M. Morehouse of Klamath Falls, Oregon. He apparently was the fourth husband of Ellen Ethel Stewart. Additional research indicated that his name was William R(aymond) Bement who married Ellen (Stewart) Anderson on 15 Jun 1929 (marriage license #12-304) and they divorced in 1938 (Volume 26, Page 394, case #4895). Ellen is listed as Ellen Bement in the 1933 and 1935 City Directory, but no where does Ray appear except in marriage and divorce records.

No other information is available and this individual has not been linked to the main Bement Family Tree. This is possibly Raymond Bement (b. 1900), son of William Bement (1872-1955) of Minnesota. The William Bement line is also not presently linked to the main Bement line. (Nov 1999)

ROY JEAN BEMENT (Lyle Henry, William Henry, Henry Parsons, Levi Hiram, Nathaniel, Edmund, Jonathan, Edmund, John, John), born 20 Jun 1920 at Rockford, Illinois; married 3 Dec 1938 Olive Opal Schertz at Keokuk, Iowa. She was born 19 Oct 1917 at Minier, Illinois, daughter of Edwin C. Schertz (1872-1945) by his wife Katie L. Saltar (1878-1858). Jean was the only son of Lyle Henry Bement (b. 1894) and Iris (Finks) Bement (1901-1990).

Olive came from a family of nine children that settled in McLean County, Illinois abound 1890; and was born in the family home at Minier, Illinois. Her brothers were successful in operating Schertz Electric and Hardware, which was the major source of appliances, electrical and plumbing parts/repairs, and other household items for Minier and its neighboring communities.

Jean resided with his grandparents during his early childhood and was later raised by his mother and step father. When he graduated from grade school (1933) his mother told him his surname was Bement, not Bare, but told him little else about his father. Jean worked in a bakery while in high school, and after graduation moved to Bloomington and continued to work in a bakery. He eloped with Olive prior to his senior year of high school, and remained secretly married until after graduation. In 1941 Jean was a setup man and in 1942 an assembler at Barnes Drill in Rockford. In 1944 he enlisted in the United States Navy, went to boot camp at Great Lakes, Illinois; Cook + Bakers School in Gulfport, Mississippi; submarine training in New London, Connecticut; and sonar school in San Diego, California. He then entered the submarine service where he remained until the close of the war, serving in the Pacific Theatre near Guam. (His military records indicated service from 25 May 1944 - 16 Mar 1946, honorably discharged as "ships cook third class", certificate #2405483). After the war both Jean and Olive became restauranteurs, and in 1946 he changed the spelling of the family name from Bement to BeMent, when they opened their first restaurant beginning with the Koffee Kup Kafe in Minier, Illinois which they owned and ran for fourteen years.

The original Koffee Kup Kafe was located in the back of the town barber shop. This was quickly outgrown, and the restaurant relocated to a much larger building. The restaurant became to place to meet and eat in the area (other than the local churches) not only for the small farming community of Minier (pop. 850), but also other surrounding towns. The restaurant was open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. During the mid 1950's, during Juleinne's high school days, and the newfound music of rock 'n roll the restaurant became even more popular as the tables and chairs were pushed aside, the juke box turned up, and the sock hop began after the many victorious basketball games. The restaurant was taken over by Jean's mother, Iris Bare, who continued to operate it for another four years until it was sold in 1963. Iris, and Jean's step father, Wayne Bare moved to Sarasota around 1966.

During the time of owning the Koffee Kup Kafe several other significant events took place. Jean handled the annual July 4th fireworks for several years from 1952-55. In 1955 Jean and Olive built a large swimming pool (the only one in town) in their back yard. Due to its popularity they quickly built on a bathhouse, and opened it to the public during the late spring to early fall. He also operated the local movie house (next to the Koffee Kup Kafe) in 1956 for several years (another popular place to go); and opened a "drive in" called "Doggie In The Window" on the main road passing by town (summers of 1957-58). Jean was also a Master Mason, Scottish Rite Mason, and Shriner.

In 1957 Jean became interested in selling investments, and became successful selling for Investors Diversified Services in his spare time. He wanted to get out of the restaurant business and try something different. They (Jean, Olive, and Dennis) moved to Sarasota, Florida in April 1959 (Juleinne was engaged and stayed in Minier to complete high school and marry) where Jean started selling investments, but quickly discovered an opportunity and established BeMent's Chicken, then BeMent's Country Boy Restaurant + Woodshed Lounge, and in 1989 BeMent's Southern Kitchen which he closed in June, 1993. Both Jean and Olive were active in the restaurants with Jean focusing on kitchen and production areas, and Olive managing the dining room(s) and books.

In addition to operating the main restaurant (in South Sarasota) they also opened a location in North Sarasota (1960-61) and Bradenton, Florida (1963-64) under the BeMent's Chicken name.

Jean died after a brief illness on Sunday, July 11, 1999 at 10:15 AM at Doctor's Hospital in Sarasota, Florida from complications of diabetes and cancer. His body was cremated and the remains buried at Sarasota Memorial Park. ________________________

Obituary for Roy Jean BeMent Sarasota Herald-Tribune Tuesday, July 13, 1999

Roy Jean BeMent, 79, Sarasota, died July 11, 1999.

He was born June 20, 1920, in Rockford, Ill., and came to Sarasota 40 years ago.

After serving in the Navy Submarine Corps in World War II, he opened his first restaurant in 1946 in Minier, Ill. In Sarasota he opened BeMent's Country Boy Restaurant and Woodshed Lounge, which he and his wife owned and operated until 1983. In 1989 they opened BeMent's Southern Kitchen, which they ran until their retirement in 1993. Over the years they also owned other restaurants in Sarasota and Bradenton. BeMent was a master Mason and member of Scottish Rite and Shriners, and Elks Club.

Survivors include his wife of 60 years, Olive; a daughter, Juleinne Kindred of Cape Coral; a son, Dennis of Orlando; four grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

A memorial service will be at 10 a.m. July 24 in Sarasota Memorial Park. National Cremation Society, Sarasota chapter, is in charge. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Hospice of Southwest Florida. ________________________ Note: At least three other Bement lines chose to spell their surname with a capital M, apparently independently. The earliest appears to have been Alvah BeMent, son of William from Captain David's line.

REV. RUFUS BUDD BEMENT, D.D. attended Ashfield Academy, and the noted Van Tennsaleer School at Troy, New York, from which he was graduated with honors. A short interval of teaching followed, when he at the age of twenty-three, he removed to the then wilderness of Michigan, where as a supervisor he made extensive surveys of land for the government, as well as for individuals. During this time he prepared for the ministry, subsequently removing to Dexter, Jackson and Battle Creek, preaching successively at each place. At Battle Creek, he was elected Justice of the Peace and Mayor, and was also sent from there to the State Legislature.

After a time, he went to Delphi, Sandusky, and Tiffin, Ohio and, at the latter place, studied law, and was admitted to the Bar, but he never practiced as a lawyer to any extent. Quitting Tiffin, he travelled for eight months in Palestine and adjacent countries, and also visited the principal cities of Europe. From this trip may be dated the beginning of his career as a lecturer, in which so large a part of his life was spent, and in which he felt an honorable, honest pride. Dr. Bement was a great lover of works and study, and was untrammeled by prejudice in his methods of thought.

He was an ardent Knight Templar, although his parent lodge has not been ascertained. In 1862 at Clyde, Ohio he became a member of the Monticello Lodge No. 244, and he had previously been associated with Lodge No. 77 of Tiffin, and in 1949 with the Olive Lodge No. 48 at Delphi, Indiana. He was associated with the Masonic Orders for over fifty-five years.

Ruth Bement was indicated in the original Chonicles of the Bement Family in America (1928) to have been married to Elisha Barnes. Margaret Myers of Skaneateles, New York (e-mail: myersdpm@@juno.com) has done extensive research on the Brace Family in America which indicates that Ruth Bement was married to Elisha Brace rather than Elisha Barnes. (Sept. 1999)

Elisha Brace was born in Stockbridge, MA; the same town as where Ruth Bement lived. Ruth and Elisha Brace are buried in the Boughton Hill Cemetery in Victor, NY. Ruth married (2) Abraham Boughton (one of the founders of Victor, NY) in 1815 after the death of her first husband. Elisha Brace is listed in the 1790 MA census with himself as head of family and two females (his wife and oldest daughter Clarissa). She is buried with Elisha and not with her second husband, Abe Boughton, although buried in the Boughton Hill cemetery and listed on her head stone as wife of Elisha Brace. (Her maiden name in not on the stone). (Source: Margaret Young Myers, Sept. 1999)

SAMUEL BEMENT was one of sixteen charter members of St. John's Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons when it was formed in Middletown, Connecticut on 26 Feb 1763 in the tavern of Captain Michael Burnham. The tavern was still standing on Washington Street, below Main and was occupied as a residence about 1915. (Source: Bement Chronicles in America; 1928, pp. 77-79)

SAMUEL BEMENT (5-73) left Windham with his father and settled at Salisbury, Connecticut, some little time before his marriage, no doubt attracted thereto by the increasing activity in the iron industry, which, a little later became Salisbury's distinctive claim to Revolutionary glory. Secure among its hills, the Salisbury iron furnaces, of which, at that time, there were several, were never interrupted by fear of attack or capture. Proudly the old ore beds gave up their treasure, which, sent forth as cannon, did their stern work on many a battlefield. Here, from the time of his early manhood, until the bursting of the war clouds of the Revolution, save for a short interval, Samuel Bement lived the uneventful life incidental to the rural community. A well-to-do farmer and smith, he from time to time substantially increased the acreage of his landed possessions. His homestead was near the northeast corner of Salisbury, on the east side of the road, then leading from Caleb Nichols' dwelling in said Salisbury, to Colonel John Ashley's in Sheffield. (Source: Salisbury Town Records, Liber viii, f243). Some eighty acres of this, with barn, dwelling house and smith's shop, he sold under date of 21 Nov 1791, to Ashael Hall, Jr. of Wallingford, Connecticut. He also had other land on Town Hill. For a brief period he must have resided at Lenox, Massachusetts, as two of his children were born there and his cattle mark was there recorded, though no date is given in the entry, which is as follows: "Samuel Bement's mark for his creatures is a half cross the under side of the right ear and a half penney, the upper side of the same."

Like his brothers, Samuel Bement was a staunch adherent of the cause of the Colonies, and on 26 May 1777, he enlisted for three years' service in Captain Albert Chapman's Company, Seventh Regiment, Connecticut Continental Line, and his name appears in a list of the men of that regiment who were to be allowed depreciation of their wages for service therein. (Source: Connecticut Men in the Revolution).

SAMUEL BEMENT was in service during the Revolution. It is not easy to differentiate the several Samuel Bements', Revolutionary soldiers from Connecticut, but he is, doubtless, the Samuel Bement, Jr., who enlisted 8 Feb 1778, in the Ninth Regiment, Connecticut militia, under Captain John Hart; was promoted Corporal, June 1778, and discharged 8 Feb 1781. (Source: Connecticut in the Revolution).

Samuel was listed as a charter member of St. John's (probably Masonic) Lodge of Middletown, Connecticut which was held at the tavern of Captain Michael Burnham on 26 Feb 1754. This tavern was the house later (c. 1920) occupied by Dr. Edgerton, on Washington Street below Main Street. Later he was engaged in the tea trade with China, and lost his life in one of Samuel Russels' sailing vessels in the prosecution of that enterprise.

His estate was administered upon by his widow, Mary Bement, 2 April 1787, who survived him by many years. (Source: Middletown Probate Records, Liber vi, f.531). On 31 March 1800 she was appointed guardian to her sons, John and Joseph. Under date of 31 Oct 1805 she conveyed (Source: Middletown Land Records, Liber xliii, ff 1-2) to her son Joseph, one equal undivided half of certain lands on the northern part of Main Street; and on 25 April 1811 she conveyed (Source: Ibid Liber lxvi, f. 148) the remaining portion to her son John. She was called "deceased" in a deed describing said property 27 May 1838.

In the settlement of the estate of Mr. Bement, and the division of his lands indicated that they only had three children.

SAMUEL BEMENT was attracted to the hills of Vermont early in the closing decade of the eighteenth century, and on 2 Jan 1795, he bought lands at Tunbridge, to which he subsequently made various additions, the last tract stretching along the highway leading to Chelsea. Here he remained until 1816, at which year he settled at Bradford, where he closed his life. At both towns, he united the vocations of farmer and smith, and was a manufacturer of wrought nails, cut nails being then unknown. In 1812 he was described as a "non-resident member" of the Salisbury Congregational Church. (Source: Bement Chronicles in America; 1928, pp. 174-175)

SAMUEL BEMENT was the eighth deacon of the Ashfield Congregational Church, noted for a strict observance of the faith and ordinance of religion, and was otherwise of influence in his native town, on the slopes of the Hoosac Mountains, some twelve hundred feet above the waters of the Connecticut River. He represented Ashfield in the Massachusetts Legislature in 1830 and was a prominent member of the Liberty or Abolitionist Party which arose in the very early forties and elected his son Jasper as a state legislator in 1844. By occupation he was farmer, and died of dysentery. His will of 20 April 1844 bequeathed to son, Rufus, all his lands in Ingham County, Michigan, and three hundred dollars; with the remainder to other children, after the decease of his wife.

SAMUEL BEMENT left his native town of Woodstock, Vermont in 1832, and became a drug clerk at Holley, Orleans County, New York. In 1834 and 1835 he was master of a transport boat on the Erie Canal, and in the following year taught school at Tecumseh, Michigan. During the autumn of 1847 he became associated with a party of engineers, in making preliminary surveys for the Michigan Southern Railroad from Monroe to the mouth of the St. Joseph River on Lake Michigan, and remained as engineer of construction until its completion to Hillsdale, Michigan 1942.

In the years 1846 and 1847 he made surveys on the Jackson branch and the extension of the Michigan Southern, west of Hillsdale. He became, in 1848, engineer of construction to the Cleveland + Columbus Railroad, later part of the Big Four System, where he continued until the road was finished in 1851. At this time, the Michigan Southern changed ownership and he accepted the position of engineer of its reconstruction to Hillsboro and the extension to Chicago. In 1853 he was appointed resident engineer of the Air Line road with an office at Bryan, Ohio. At the termination of this operation, in 1857, he retired from railroad work, and settled at Toledo in 1861. At Toledo, from 1868 to 1878, he was assistant city engineer, and in 1880, was elected county supervisor.

Throughout his long life, which neared the century mark, he was widely known and prominently identified with large corporations as an expert engineer. At the age of ninety-five years he was still able to figure out the most intricate engineering problems, and was the oldest working civil engineer in the country.

For many years he a deacon in the First Congregational Church of Toledo. His exemplary moral character, sterling business principals and high ideals, won for him a host of friends in all circles. He married, at Palmyra, Michigan 27 Oct 1841, Laura Mitchell Warner who was noted in her church memorial as "a rare, unselfish spirit".
