I recently learnt from the Mormon's in Utah and the State of Navada that the Beckstead's played a huge part in the Mormon religion.I have found also in the State of Utah's history books that Alexander and Henry played a big part of claiming some places in Utah and naming....ex.. Jordan Straight Cedar City etc.... Church of Latter Day Saints offers alot about the Beckstead family name!
Visit the LDS Official web site for more intresting information about the Beckstead name. Utah State University history dept. as well can be helpful alot of intresting stuff to read!
By the way Alexander and Henry were my Great Great Grandfather and Uncle.I recently got an invitation from the Mormon church to visit the Montreal Temple, in honour of my Ancestors before it became blessed .... cause once a Temple is blessed non members can not enter!
Note: Any other information would be apperciated Janet Beckstead in Ontario Canada Thanks
