Bean, George R., might be termed a native of Watertown, having removed with his parents from Otsego county when he was but two years of age. He was educated in the public schools and at an early age entered the service of Dexter & Herrick, who were engaged in the flour and feed business, in whose employ he remained for seventeen years. In 1885 he embarked in business on his own account, forming the firm of George R. Bean & Co., which continued for nine years, when it was succeeded by Messrs. Robins, Bean & Makepeace, and after one year that firm was succeeded by the present firm, that of Bean & Makepeace..
