was a partner in the business of carriage manufacturing. The firm of Beebe, Whitfield & Co. continued eleven
years and then dissolved, Mr. Beebe since conducting the business. His chief manufactures are carriages and speeding
carts. He furnishes employment to about twenty five hands. The works are in Jacob street in Penn Yang village.
In 1862 George Beebe enlisted in Company B, One Hundred and Forty eighth New York Volunteer Infantry, and served
three years. In March, 1857, at Mohawk, N. Y., he married Ann Eliza Woolever, by whom he had two sons. Ann E. Beebe
died in 1878. In 1879 he married Susan M. Nelson, of Little Falls. One child has been born of this marriage.
