I am researching the John H. Beck family. John and his wife Clarrisa J. Alexander were married Aug. 13, 1843 in Bond County, Illinois.
Clarrisa J. Beck married a second time to Joseph E. Gaylor on Aug. 8, 1850 in Bond County, Illinois.
I haven't verified it yet, but Clarissa J. Alexander's parents were supposed to be Josiah Newton Alexander and Frances McWhirter. Need help in confirming this.
I believe that John H. Beck was born about 1818 and that Clarissa was born about 1822.
Louisa Helen Beck, daughter of John and Clarissa Beck married Asher L. Townsend.
Francis Everett Beck, son of John and Clarissa Beck married Mary Elizabeth Martin. They had a son named Asher Layton Beck, I believe he was named after his uncle Asher L. Townsend. The “L” could stand for Layton.
There is also supposed to be another son named Oscar and another named Lewis Otho Beck. Any help would be most appreciated.
