The Becks, From Ireland To Somervell Co Texas Updated April 1, 2005
About Our Family Research
James Irving Beck arrived in the USA, from Ireland, in 1830. He arrived at the Baltimore Port, at the age of 18, with very little more than the clothes on his back. Nothing much is known about this Beck line, prior to this time. In Illinois, in 1843, he married Nancy Jackson, whose grandfather was a brother to President Andrew Jackson. Two known children were born to this union, John, in 1844, and James in 1846. At this time I am desperately seeking any info prior to James Irving Beck.
