Researcher's Notes

The following information is from Ozark Heritage, Dent County Historical Society, Cemeteries & Families, Volume III 1994

  • BECKER, JOHN W.; b 5/1862 MO - d 1912 (grave & 3 more family members are enclosed by a concrete wall); J.W. md. Lillie Golden, 1883, Simmons Mt., Dent Co. (b 7/1868 MO, d/o David and Margaret Golden, Lillie moved to Denver, CO); ch: Arthur Clyde (5/1889-1941, bur. Mt. Greenwood Cem., Chicago, IL, md. Annie), Charles F. (b 12/1884, d 4/3/1963, bur. Mt Greenwood Cem., md Maud Murray of Salem, 1906 & later Grace Keeppl), Beatrice Napper (b. 1/1897), Edna Margaret Benedict, b. 5/1891); bro to Al & Otto (Crawford Co.)

Regarding Edna Margaret Becker, born May 1891, her information on Find A Grave is incorrect. “Edna Pearl Beker” born 1910, in England is attributed as a daughter of John W. Becker. F.A.G. has her married to Clarence Benedict, but the wife of Clarence (and real daughter of John W.) is Edna Margaret Becker, born May 1891.
