Taken from the writtings of my step-ggm Emma (Chellis) Beck:
mother's maiden name, to my best recollection, Hines. Father beck unknown to me. Married into Seymour family. Name unknown to me. Children Saul, Lewis (Lue) and Elizabeth (aka Bet or Beth). Saul and Lew, wives maiden names unknown."
"Elizabeth Seymour married Nelson Beck; date & place unknown. Born to this union, seven children; the first three dying while quite young with diptheria. The youngest being Louisa & Lewis (twins). Lewis died very shortly after birth. The remaining three were: Louisa, Alice and George."
"Louisa married Wm Nelson Hutchison, date unknown; born to this union: Harley, Ida, Arthur, Nelson and Donna."
"Alice married (1) Abraham (Abe) Deen/Deep(?), date unknown. Born to thie union: Goldie, Bryan, Myrtle, and Elizabeth (Lizzie)."
Alice married (2) Allison Gyers/Cyers(?), July 16, 1908. Born to this union: Harry and Palmer."
"George R. Beck (b. Oct, 1873 in OH)married three times: (1) Clara Ackley, (2) Etta Perkins, and (3) Emma Chellis."
George married (1) Clara Ackley (b. Jun 15, 1878 in OH) of Chillicothe, OH on Jan. 24, 1898 in Pickaway, OH. Born to this union, two: James Austin Beck (Aug. 30, 1898) and Esther Beck (Dec.,1899 in Franklin, OH) Clara Ackley died Apr. 15, 1900 in Pike, OH. Esther Beck died May 1, 1900 in Pike, OH. James A. Beck died Oct. 11, 1957 in Columbus, OH.
"George R. married (2) Etta Perkins, Louisa, KY." (I don't know if this means she was from Louisa, KY, or if they married in Louisa, KY)Born to this union two children, Homer Clinton Beck, and an infant name unknown.
I am trying to locate the parents of George R. Beck, Nelson and Elizabeth (Seymour); also who were Elizabeth Seymour's parents, where and when she was born and where and when she died.
I am in search of information on wife #2, Etta Perkins, date of birth and death, where and when, who were her parents and place of marriage with George R. Beck.
I would also like to locate where wife #1, Clara Bell Ackley is buried and if her daughter Esther is buried there also.
I'm trying to locate where my gf James Austin Beck stayed and with whom he lived from date of sister's death until he appearred in the 1910 US Census for Ohio, Clark Co., 2nd Ward of Springfield,living with George and Emma Beck and their 2 yr. old son Herman Beck. James was age 11 at that time; I have at least 10 years of his life unaccounted for. (1900 - 1910) I am unable to locate James Austin Beck in the 1920, OH census thus far; I did locate him again, however in the 1930 Census for Ohio in Columbus, Franklin Co., Dist. 82 living with his wife, Elsie (age 33), son Lawrence E. (12 yrs), Clara H. (11 yrs), and Dorothy L. (9 yrs).James and Elsie Davis married in KY (believed) in 1915 or 1916.I do not know where James and Elsie Davis lived following their marriage (1915/16) to the 1930 Census. They are not shown as living with George R. and Emma's family in 1930 or 1920.
If anyone can shed some light on these questions, please contact me.Thank you.
