BECK Family Genealogical Research

Almond & Dorothy (Beck) Cressman
My grandparents, Almond and Dorothy (Beck) Cressman

Welcome to my BECK family page. I am descended from Johan Hendrick (1692-1766) and Anna Maria Beck who came from Germany in 1740 on the ship "Lydia". Along with them were a Johannes Wilhelm and Johan Jacob Beck, presumably their sons. They settled in Northampton Co, PA; my branches of the family ended up in Westmoreland Co, PA, Holmes Co, OH, and Clinton Co, MI. Note that another Northampton Co. Beck family was descended from Johan George, who came over in 1752 on the ship "Richard and Mary" in 1752 according to this post on the Beck mailing list - I don't know how or if they're related. If you have any problems accessing anything, or any additions/corrections, let me know at [email protected]. Happy hunting!
