Mathew Beck was my great great grandfather. I have within the past week found out who his mother and father were, but other than the names,I have no info. I do have the names and birthdates or at least birth years of his 10 children. I have been to Beckville, Texas, and found out that he left there, but no one seems to know where he went. Also, found out that all the Becks currently in that area are black. According to the public records there, Mathew did have several black families who worked for him and who took his name. Be glad to share all I know.

Allison Berry Beck was my dad.

What is your name? and which line did you come through? Where do you live? etc. etc.

Would love to hear from you.

Pat,

We're half relations my family are Rhodes from Molly Moseley's second husband Willis Rhodes (Molly was the mother of Matthew W. Beck). I'm Molly's 3GGrandson. I had never been able to pin down the name of Matthew's father but would love to know it. You may contact me directly at LeightonTu at verizon dot net.

Only know that his mother's name was Mollie Morely. I have searched and searched for his father's name, but haven't been able to locate any info or anyone who had that info. I did find out her second husband was Willis Rhodes, and have been in contact with them. Hope this clears up a little for your husband. Who does Melissa Beck belong to? The name is familiar and I'm sure I have it in my geneology base; however, I do not have that at my disposal at this point in time.

I don't have my info in front of me right now, but I believe Malisa or Melissa was Matthew's daughter. She married a Leonard Smith and they had several children. Their son William O. Smith was my husband's great grandfather. One of the daughters married a Keener. They seemed to have moved to Oklahoma from Texas, or perhaps back and forth as I think William O. died in Texas. I have been trying to chip away at my brick walls lately. Finding Leonard Smiths parents is not easy. They kept the name Leonard in the family, though. With William O. naming his son Leonard and then he named a son Leonard and then my husband has a cousin Leonard (Lenny)! Thanks for replying

Hi! My husband is descended from these Becks. Not sure if I have a lot of information, still trying to find Matthew's father. Matthew and Mary had a daughter Melissa (sometimes Malisa or Melissa) and she married about 1869 to Leonard Smith. Their son William O. Smith was my husband's great grandfather.
