Re: Benjamin Beckner, wife Rachel Brooks
Hi, Zandra. Thank you for the reply. About all that I have is from Emma Mae Beckner, daughter of Ben and Emma. First their children; Henry b. Mo., John b.Mo., EMMA MAE b. Indiana, Brooks b. Texas, Lydia b. Tx., Joseph b. Tx., Josephine b. Tx.EMMA MAE b. 2 May 1848, ? LaPort, Ind. Married Edward Elias Taylor( g.grandfather) 15 Dec.1871, Dallas, Texas (probably in Mesqiute). If you would like I would be happy to furnish further history of Emma and Ben down to present. I'm searching for Ben's buriel place. I've been to Rachel's grave site in Mesquite, Tx. Ben died in Dallas, Co. as did Rachel. All of my family history is hand written so I'll have to dig thru' everything for dates. Just let me know. Also if you would like to share your history of Joseph I'd like that as well. God Bless, Bob Taylor.
