History: 1843 "..
the name of Anthony (William) Beekman (1798-1864) is listed and
in 1845 the firm of Anthony Beekman & Co. appears to be in possession
of the property. Anthony Beekman was succeeded by his sons, Noah
W., Benjamin and John Groff, under the firm name of Beekman Brothers,
who also conducted a grocery and feed store in St. Johnsville for
many years. In June, 1884, A. E. Seaman took possession of the old
mill and operated it until October 1, 1921 when it passed into the
ownership of McCrone Brothers. On
acquiring the property, Mr. Seaman learned the history of the ancient
structure, and recalls that it was built by Leonard and Curran,
and that a memorandum made by the original owners, or by some workmen,
showed that the mill was completed in February, 1835. Mr. Seaman
also recalls that Samuel Sadler was the first miller employed and
that his home was at Ingham's Mills, to which place he returned
when Beekman Brothers entered into possession of the mill after
the death of their father. Loami Beekman, another son of Anthony
Beekman, but not a member of the firm of Beekman Brothers, was employed
as the miller by his brothers, until the property passed into the
hands of Mr. Seaman." From the
Book, "Town of Saint Johnsville Sesquicentennial History
1838 - 1988". Research has indicated that
there is no relation between the Beekman Brothers and the Noteworthy
Beekman's of near-by Sharon Springs popularized by Josh Kilmer-Purcell
& Dr. Brent Ridge aka the Beekman Boys. www.Beekman1802.com.
