2069 [Nathan] came to Constantia about 1795 and cleared a farm. During the early days of his residence here he had many thrilling adventures on the lake, and in the woods with wild animals. He was noted for his daring and bravery.

On one occassion, about 1806, while on his way from the mill one evening with his horses and homemade jumper leigh, he was attacked by a small band of wolves. With his axe, he beat them off, but they would then get in front of his horse and stop it. This battle was renewed five times with the same results, until the wolves finally retreated with howls to gather reinforcements. Mr. Beebe knowing their nature made all possible haste towards home, and scarcely reached his destination when the wolves appeared in large numbers, but he was safe in his cabin home.

On the evening of May 10, 1827, he with six other men started to paddle a flat boat loaded with lumber across Oneida Lake from Cleveland to South Bay, at midnight, when about half way across, a storm arose and the waves washed the lumber into the lake. He and a man by the name of Cummings were washed off on seven planks. It was a cold night and six inches of snow fell; their sufferings were intense. After struggling about hopelessly with the waves, Mr. Cummings became chilled and weak and Mr. Beebe, being a very large and powerful man of wonderful endurance and endowed by nature with great will power, succeeded in getting his comrade under one arm, while with the other he held the planks together. In this way he battled with the waves for their lives. At about four o'clock in the morning, they drifted ashore, poor Cummings still grasped in the strong arm of Mr. Beebe, but not being able to withstand the extreme exposure had expired him an hour before.
