Daniel Beck is one of twins.
Daniel Beck died young.
Daniel, may have been the twin son of Phillip Beck and Sarah Runkle, who was born about 15 September 1850 in Paradise Township, York County, Pennsylvania. The 9 December 1850 census shows him living there with his parents Philip (age 41, farmer on land valued at $2,000) and Sarah Beck (38), and siblings Lamanda (12), Lucy A. (11), Levi (9), Sarah Elizabeth (7), Leah (5), Reuben (4) and Phillip (2). Daniel is included in no further census record with the family, nor have other records been located. If he existed, he died before 1860.
Disputed Existence: The 1850 census lists a two-month-old daughter named Daniel and does not include Elizabeth Catharine, his reputed twin. He is not included with the family on the 1860 census. There are two possibilities:
The enumerator erred in recording the name Daniel, when it should show Elizabeth only; or
The enumerator combined the two babies on the one line, but intended to record Daniel (male) and Elizabeth (female).
