Greene County mourns longtime historian
COXSACKIE – Greene County Historian Raymond Beecher was remembered Friday as a great friend and philanthropist who was dedicated to preserving local history.
"He had an encyclopedic understanding of Greene County history," Ted Hilscher said of Beecher, who died Thursday in his Coxsackie home at age 91. Hilscher said Beecher was a giving man who shared the knowledge he collected and constantly researched primary source documents. Hilscher also said Beecher saved a lot of local history that could have been lost.
