You mention a MINNIE BECK on the 1920 Georgia - Cherokee CO census:
BECKMACK56MWGAGACHEROKEEBALL GROUND DIST1920
Listed : Beck, Mack - Head - age 57, Married -, Lear - wife - age 53" -, Viola - Daughter - age 16, -, Venita - Daughter - age 13 - single -,Luther - son- age 9, single Wehunt, Minnie - mother in law - age 80, widow
I am researching my husband's family (BECK), which we have not been able to locate.But recently I have a few leads that perhaps they were living in the Lumpkin County area.The only DAVID BECK located in this area lived in the Auraria area.
One death records noted LEA FRIX also listed as thewife of JASPER MACK BECK (David's son).I found them listed on the 1870 & 1880 census records for Auraria, based on the agesand names that I know of right now.Am finding MINNIE WEHUNT (age 80) also listed as his mother-in-law on the 1920 Cherokee County GA census.
I am curious as to the if you might have a LEA FRIX listed in the BECK/FRIX records?Is is possible to get a list of the surnames associated with this file at your library?Do you have any obituries for this family as well?Just wondering what you might have available there.
Jasper Mack (Mankin) Beck, b.22 Feb 1865, d.7 Dec 1950 - Nelson, GA.Trying to find out both his parents and Lea's or Lear's parents, if their last name were FRIX or WEHUNT.
From recent information received from two other sources, we think that "Minnie Wehunt" was a nickname for:
Alanna Elizabeth Crane was born in Pickens County, South Carolina

We don't know if she ever went by the name Minnie, but all of these details seem to be pointing to the same person.
Any help you could offer would really be appreciated.
