Gottfried Becker was the second born son of Heinrich Becker and his first wife, name unknown to current descendants.

They had two children before immigrating to Canada in 1912 where they lived until 1920. At that time the family moved to the United States. Gottfried settled in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, while his father and step-mother chose to settle in Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
