    Biography
    • BIOGRAPHY: Jacob Beck, son of John and grandson of Johann Thomas, settled in Lycoming county, near Alvira, Pa. He is buried at the Messiah Church near that place. He was a large land owner and followed farming all his life. His family was large, viz.: Charles lived and died in Lycoming county; Henry and Peter lived and died in Lycoming county; Benjamin; Catharine married John Breon; Mary married Mahlon Bower; George and William lived and died in Lycoming county; Hannah married Mr. Wenrick; Thomas lived and died in Lycoming county.

      NOTE: Johann Thomas Beck died at sea enroute to America in 1752, so could not have been the grandfather of Jacob. Records indicate only a son Henry and daughter Margaret came to America with their parents. John was born in 1758.
