Question: I am looking for an early Boston Minister I can not locate. Can you refer me to a reference that can find a Methodist named Rev. Beman?
Answer: There is a listing of ministers in Boston up to the year 1846 published in the NEHGS publication: A Researcher's Guide to Boston (Boston, Mass., 2003), pgs. 99-107. The minister you mentioned is perhaps Rev. Jeheil C. Beman who was a Methodist Minister at the Zion Church.
