If you go to Goggle and type in beckner family in virginia a lot of info will come up. So far I found the following; Johan Nichloas Beckner 1704 to 1779 Germany = son Johan Nichloas Beckner, Jr. 1725 to 1812 = son Lawrence Bedkner 1733 to 1802 Germany m. Susnnah ? 1740 to 1802 = son Jacob. Some on these dates do not look to be correct.
I am still searching. The middle name of my fatherin-law may go back 100 + yrs.
