Hi, this article was sent to me years aro, not sure from what. It lists a few BECKMAN names, thought I'd post it. They are not mine.
Page 396: August 12, 1918 - LUTHERAN CHURCH UNFURLS FLAG. CONTAINING SIXTEEN STARS--PATRIOTIC PROGRAM GIVEN. Last evening at the unfurling of a service flag, representing sixteen brave young men in the country's military service from the Augustana Lutheran church, 105 South Wall street, a pleasing patriotic program was rendered by home talent. The ladies sextette sang a number of American songs, and also led the singing of the congregation. Miss Elsie Beckman presided at the organ, and had full charge of the musical program which was well received by an appreciative audience. Misses Agnes Johnson, Florence Swanson, Lucile Lind and Margaret Johnson gave patriotic recitations of a high order of merit, and many in the pews were moved to tears. The literary part of the program made a deep and lasting impression on all present. The dedication of the service flag took place and was followed by a brief address by Rev. J.W. Nyvall, congratulating the church members upon the fact that so many of their number were engaged in the gigantic struggle for liberty and justice.The Stars stand for the following names: Carl Albert Beckman, Herbert Mauritz Beckman, George Emanuel Beckman, Carl Beckman, Freb Bloom, Bror G Bergerson, Carl Erik Arthur Etikson, Edward Herbert Hendrickson, Melvin Kindstom, Daniel Levine, Arthur Peterson, Harry Clarence Sand, Sidney Ferdinand Andreas Sand, Carl Arthur Stonefelt, John Albert Wickenberg. Rev. J.W. Nyvall's two sons are in the army, but they enlisted in Utah, which is their home state.
