I have a little information that might help you with the concern of Frederick E. Beede.........
I see that he married a Francis M. Leach in Surry, Hancock County, Maine........
While in the woods today, in Lebanon, Maine........MANY miles south and west of Surry, Maine.......My boyfriend and I came upon some kind of brick rectangle with a concrete slab on the top. The slab was decorated with large chunks of quartz.
There was writing into the concrete on the top of this "box" (grave???) and it said,
"In Memory of Francis M. Beede, Born 1891, Died 1967"
Could this be Frederick Beede's wife from Surry, Maine??
I'm not sure, but if you haven't found their graves in Surry, perhaps you should be looking in the Lebanon, Maine area??? And that would give you some kind of a date for Francis M. Leach Beede, if this is, indeed, the same woman??
Sorry I can't be of more help, but I was trying to find out who Francis Beede was when I found YOUR post on Google.
you can e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and if I find any more information, I'd be happy to share it with you.
