I have a Neil Becknal who was a cousin of my great grandmother Mabel Becknal. Neil's parents were Alexander and Francis Becknal. He had three sisters as well. The Becknal's came from the area of Virginia which is now the state of West Virginia. I have been doing research on the census images for the Becknal's and have found that the family lived in Ohio before moving to Iowa. My gg-grandfather William and his younger brother Alexander were both born in Iowa.
