Re: Benjamin Beckner, wife Rachel Brooks
Karen, I am not positive about the wagon train being from a company or wagonmaster named Terry. What I have read was that most of the folks buried in Amy Frost cemeteries were all friends. Too, I know several Terry's are b. there. The Terry's have a big family history site, by the way...I have never contacted any of them. My angle is this; several of our 3rd or maybe fourth cousins I've spoke with in Cleburne, Tx. have told me the Beckner's were Jewish. Now, I've never heard this from anything I've read about any of the Beckner's...however...while researching La Port, In. I read that La Port was very open towards Jewish families and was somewhat the place to move if you were Jewish. So...???Have you heard anything to support this?? God Bless, Bob.
