William Beaumont

 

William Beaumont (also spelled Beamon, Beamond, or Beaman) and his younger brother John Beaumont (also spelled Bement) left England in April 1635 on the ship "Elizabeth", and settled in Salem, Massachusetts. William Beaumont later moved to Saybrook Colony, Connecticut, in 1640; his brother John Bement remained in Massachusetts.

The William Beaumont family has several notable members.Dr. William Beaumont, circa 1821 Perhaps the most notable is Dr. William Beaumont (1785-1853), U.S. Army surgeon and author of "Experiments and Observations on the Gastric Juice and the Physiology of Digestion" (1833, Plattsburgh: F.P. Allen). The book details his work with Alexis St. Martin, a Canadian voyageur who had a gunshot wound that resulted in a permanent hole in his stomach. Through this hole, Dr. Beaumont inserted bits of food into St. Martin's stomach, observed the chemical process of digestion, and siphoned samples of gastric juice. This occurred during the "primitive" days of medicine, when doctors didn't realize the importance of cleanliness, patients were often treated with opium and by bleeding, and measles could kill. The American Medical Association didn't even exist until 1847.

Beaumont Family Genealogy

1st Generation in the U.S.
 
Historical perspective
Many colonists left England during the Great Migration (reigns of James I and his son Charles I) due to: religious persecution; England's low wages and high unemployment; the laws of primogeniture (eldest son inherited almost everything, younger sons got little or nothing); and the hope of becoming landowners in the "New World." Torture was not officially abolished in England until 1638.
     In 1633, the astronomer Galileo was condemned during the Inquisition for believing that the earth revolves around the sun. The slide rule was invented (1632).

Two brothers traveled together in 1635 on the ship "Elizabeth" from England to Massachusetts:

They didn't have much success, so they left in July 1802 for Mackinac Island, where they tried to minister to Ottawa Indians. Again, they made no progress, so they moved to Ohio in the summer of 1804, where David tried to establish a model settlement now known as Tallmadge as part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. In 1812, the family returned to Hartford, Connecticut. For more information about the founding of Tallmadge in 1807, see http://www.tallmadge-ohio.org/history/history.pdf.

Prior to medicine, Samuel was publisher of the "Plattsburgh Herald" newspaper in 1819; this experience was helpful in 1833 in publishing William's book about digestive experiments.

In those days, there were few American medical schools and no standards for medical training; some "doctors" practiced medicine with no formal training. So in 1811, he moved to the small town of St. Albans, Vermont to apprentice with Drs. Benjamin Chandler and Truman Powell; this was the most popular way American doctors were then trained. On June 9, 1812 William Beaumont received his license to practice "physics and surgery" from the Third Medical Society of Vermont.
           When the War of 1812 started, he joined the army's medical corps as a surgeon's mate; he was at the battle of Little York, the storming of Fort George, and the battle of Plattsburg, and received a citation for bravery. In 1815, after the War of 1812 ended, he became a small-town doctor in Plattsburgh, New York, where he met his future wife Deborah Green. Dr. William Beaumont returned to Army service in 1819, and was sent to an Army fort on Mackinac Island in Lake Huron in the Michigan Territory. On June 6, 1822, Canadian voyageur Alexis St. Martin was accidentally shot in the stomach; Beaumont treated the injury but the hole never totally healed. Dr. Beaumont hired St. Martin as a live-in servant; Beaumont experimented on St. Martin's stomach on-and-off until 1833, when St. Martin returned for good to his home in Canada.
           In December 1833, Dr. William Beaumont published his book Experiments and Observations on the Gastric Juice and the Physiology of Digestion. He eventually retired from the army and had a successful private medical practice in St. Louis, Missouri, where he died. He and his wife Deborah were close friends with Senator Thomas Hart Benton, General Robert E. Lee, and General Ethan Allen Hitchcock (grandson of Revolutionary War figure Ethan Allen of Vermont).

Dr. William was boarding at the inn when he met Deborah Green, who had returned home after her divorce from Nathaniel Platt Jr. (nephew of Zephaniah Platt, who founded Plattsburgh in 1785). Israel Green was a third cousin of General Nathanael Greene, George Washington's friend and second-in-command during the Revolutionary War; for more information on General Greene, see http://www.ushistory.org/valleyforge/served/greene.html.
           Ann Green (Deborah Green Beaumont's sister) was married to Colonel Melancton Smith (1780-1818), a War of 1812 hero from Plattsburgh, New York; he commanded the fort where Dr. William Beaumont was at the start of the Battle of Plattsburgh in August 1814. Ann Green's stepson was Rear Admiral Melancton Smith (1810-1893), who as a child lived several years with Dr. William Beaumont's family on Mackinac Island; he served during the Civil War, and also commanded the Washington and Brooklyn navy yards. Ann's daughter Elizabeth Smith married Morgan L. Martin, a family friend of the Beaumonts who invested in real estate in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and was a Member of Congress.
