Brenda, Thank you for the information you provided in the above post. I believe I am a descendant of Jacob Beckner (bc.1756) and Catherine ________, through daughter Elizabeth. She supposedly was married to John Slusser in 1808. What is your source for the names of Jacob's children? I am also a descendant of Jacob Beckner's brother Abraham (bc. 1754), through HIS daughter Elizabeth. She married Jeremiah Cook in 1820. Do you have any information for them?
