    (A-465) BEEBE - Par. of Henry Crocker BEEBE b. Somers, Conn., 28 Feb. 1811 were Charles & Lucy (HAMLIN) BEEBE, m.Wilbraham, Mass., 3 May 1810.  Their ch. #2 was Abigail, b. Tolland 27 Mar. 1813.  The par. of Lucy HAMLIN (b. 1789) were John & Lucy (BARTON) HAMLIN, m. Somers, 30 Dec. 1784.  John was b. Somers 12 Mar. 1761; d. Wilbraham 30 Oct. 1825; a private in Blackman#s Co., disch. 1780. His par. were Nathaniel & Rachel (WHIPPLE) HAMLIN, m. ca. 1753. Rachel WHIPPLE was b. 13 Oct. 1733, dau. of Thomas & Mary (GARY) WHIPPLE of Enfield.  I am as yet unable to find Nathaniel HAMLIN#s par. & cannot confirm desc. from Giles HAMLIN of Middletown, Conn. Lucy (BARTON) HAMLIN rem. to Peoria, Ill., after d. of husband; d. there 1841.  Note that John HAMLIN#s lineage in H. F. Andrews, The Hamlin Genealogy (1900) is incorrect.  Somers probate records reveal his par. as Nathaniel & Rachel (WHIPPLE) HAMLIN.
