Beck

surnames: BECK, HALL, COOLEY, SMITH, SCHEIK

Richard Beck, my 4th great grandfather, was born in 1834 in Strumpshaw, England. Presumably after emigrating to America, he married Clara Hall in 1859. Richard and Clara had two children before Clara prematurely passed away: Harry M (1857-1962); and Charles R (1862-1931). Two years after Clara died in 1862, Richard remarried Elmina Cooley, daughter of Jacob Cooley and Lavinia Alverson of Rhode Island. Residing in Murray, Orleans County, New York, Richard and Elmina had four children of their own:  Jacob (1888-?); Clara (1892-?); Lovina (1894-?); and Harry. Richard died in 1896, Elmina in 1916.

Charles R Beck (second son of Richard Beck), a farmer, married Nina Laura Smith in 1885. They lived in Murray, Orleans County, New York and had four children: Lucy A (1889-1996); Clara Lavina (1891-1969); Marion V (1893-?); Hazel B (1897-?).

Clara Lavina Beck, my great grandmother, married Edward Gustaf Scheik.
