John N.Becher b.Sept 8,1822, d.June1899and his brother Jacob Becher b.Apr. 5, 1833,d. June 12, 1907 were the sons of John William Becher and Christina Blum.I do not think the parents John W. and Christina ever came to America. The two brothers: John N. and Jacob came to Chicago in 1853. In the 1860's John N. moved to Fayette County, Iowa and some of his grandchildren moved to Idaho.The younger brother, Jacob stayed in Chicago and married Henrietta Marthinech. I would like to find the ancestors of these two brothers beyond their parents.
