Beaman, H. H.
a Baptist minister, was born in 1849. In early life he was frail in health, and was obliged to pursue his studies under private tutors. At the age of seventeen he was converted, and became a member of the Church in Athol, Mass. He was a decided, active Christian from the outset of his religious life, and about a year after joining the Church he felt himself called to enter the ministry. After preaching for a time at Warwick, Mass., he went to the Theological Institution at Newton, Mass., and remained there two years (1870-72). On leaving the seminary, he accepted a call to the pastorate of the churches of Hampton Falls and Seabrook, N. H., his ordination taking place Oct. 2, 1872. After a successful pastorate of four years, he was called, in 1876, to Bridgewater, Mass., where he remained another four years, and thenremoved to North Oxford, Mass. He died Aug. 10, 1881. "He was a good preacher, a faithful pastor, a kind and conscientious man. He fell at the post of duty, with the harness on." See The Watchman, Sept. 22, 1881. (J. C. S.)
