Beaman was born in Chester, Vermont, and moved with his parents to a farm in Franklin County, New York, in 1819. He attended the district schools and Malone Academy in Malone, New York. He taught school and moved to Rochester, New York, in 1836, where he studied law. He moved to Manchester, Michigan, in 1838, where he was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in 1839.

He moved to Adrian in 1843, having been appointed prosecuting attorney for Lenawee County, and he served in that position until 1850.
