+4 votes
Benno J Beck Born Sept 16 1882 Nebraska Died Sept 12 1960 Little Rock California.

Wife: Adelyn A Beck(Howard Maiden name) born 1899 died 1966


Mary Jane Beck born 1925, Benno C Beck born 1927, Shirly J Beck (?), Barbra Beck,  Kenneth Howard Beck Born May 9th 1931, died November 23rd 1997(my dad).

Benno J Becks mothers Maiden name may have been Castro

His brothers name may have been Otto C Beck born in 1891 & his wifes name Lillie A Beck, two years older than him.

In 1917 he either joined or was drafted into the military on June 31, 1917.

His draft card #'s were 2349 & 6342, he was listed at the time AS BEING A farmer. Either joined or was drafted in June 31, 1917 , while he was living in Fresno California(looks like he may have been living at his work place) said his eyes were blue and said he might have been born at Kilgan Nebraska. Not clear as the photo coppy of the 1917 military record, I had to blow up several times as it was faded and the hand writing from all partys involved were really bad
