The following are some of the Beck working notes..  we have been in contact with many of the Beck descendants.  We are still in the process of expanding and correcting these pieces of information.. We are presently in the process of obtaining additional information of the Lowry/Lowery's in Shelby, Coosa, Jefferson and Macon county Alabama. We are continuing to expand our information on Crumpton, Cameron and Avery. We are continuing to find additional data on Andrew Madison Lowery and his family, and on William Walter Lowery. Any amplifications or additional data will be greatly appreciated.

    1 Jesse BECK, born in 1799 at SC; buried at Enon Bapt. Churc, FL.

          Jesse Beck's burial place has not been identified.. It was not located
          in the Enon Florida Baptist Church Cemetery.  Other information indicates
          that his wife Sarah moved back to Covington County AL to live with her
          daughter, Nancy, after her husbands death.
          Jesse's birth date may have been born 1799?
          Jesse Beck moved from SC to GA, where Jesse married Sarah.  They had two
          children in GA, and then moved to Covington County Alabama about 1841,
          where
          they had the remainder of their family. Other Beck's that moved to
          Covington
          county and may be related are William Green Beck (GA) and John Beck (SC).
          
          Jesse Beck and his family are listed in the 1850 and 1860 census reports. 
          They were living near the Wesley Mathis and the Kisiah Jane (Mathis)
          Lowery
          families in the 1860 census report. Jesse Beck, Wesley Mathis, and the
          Lowery families are not listed in the 1870 census report on Covington Co.
          Indications at this time indicate that Jesse Beck's and Wesley Mathis's
          families moved to the Perdido Florida area in Escambia Co. FL prior to
          1870.
          Both families children were involved in the founding of Enon, FL in the
          1880/1885 time frame.

          11 F      x Nancy BECK, born in 1851 at Williams Mills, Covington, AL.

                      Married Richard MORGAN.

                      Family anecdote:

                      Richard MORGAN hated blacks and it was generally known that he
                      had killed
                      several who he felt had crossed him in some way. Nothing was
                      ever proved and he
                      was never caught, but he apparently made no secret of the
                      fact. Eventually he
                      was shot to death while he was out plowing his field. Field
                      hands who witnessed

                      the killing denied seeing anyone with a gun, and claimed that
                      the shots had
                      come from the nearby woods. However, those who knew MORGAN
                      believed that he was

                      killed by a vengeful relative of one of his victims, and that
                      some of the
                      witnesses may have actually known more than they admitted.

          19 M     vi Alfred BECK, born in 1875.

                      Family anecdote:

                      A descendant of Alfred's, a Winston BECK, married a Martha
                      SEABROOK (who is
                      buried in her family's plot in Milton Cemetery, Santa Rosa,
                      FL.) Martha and
                      Winston later split up, and Martha went north and took up with
                      (or possibly
                      married) another man.
                      She and this man committed a series of murders known as the
                      "Lonely Hearts
                      Murders" across the eastern US, and Martha was executed in NY
                      for the crimes.
                      It isn't currently known whether her partner in crime was also
                      caught,
                      convicted, or executed.
                      According to the Pensacola BECKS, this story was often
                      rehashed in the local FL
                      papers, since the BECKS were long-time residents of this area.
                      Many BECK family
                      members were irate at the negative publicity and indignant at
                      the notoriety
                      because, as Irene FAULK explained it, "She wasn't even a Beck,
                      she just
                      MARRIED one."

                      Family anecdote:

                      Twins Cleo Maree BECK and Clyde Myree BECK grew up on a farm
                      and assumed very
                      different roles as young girls: Cleo always accompanied her
                      father and brothers
                      on the morning "sap runs" (described to me as the collecting
                      of buckets which
                      had been hung to
                      catch sap from the pine trees, for what purpose I don't know).
                      Cleo was said to
                      have been a boisterous and noisy child, always showing off,
                      singing, and
                      cracking jokes. Because of this, she came to be called
                      "Smilin' Jack" and later
                      simply Jack. Clyde
                      stayed behind with the womenfolk in the kitchen, helping with
                      chores and
                      cooking for the family and farmhands. She was nicknamed
                      "Nigger Jim" which was
                      eventually shortened to Jim. The twins were called Jack and
                      Jim by the family
                      for the remainder of
                      their lives.

                      Another anecdote has Clyde Myree finding out the actual
                      spelling of her middle
                      name when she was a grown woman with children of her own. She
                      had always
                      thought it was Myree. When she finally discovered that it was
                      recorded as Maree
                      on her birth
                      certificate, she was so upset that she had the birth
                      certificate amended to show

   62 Cleo Myree BECK, born on 14 Dec 1923.

          Still living. Called "Jack" most of her life. Twin sister of Clyde Maree
          BECK.

          Family anecdote:

          Twins Cleo Maree BECK and Clyde Myree BECK grew up on a farm and assumed
          very
          different roles as young girls: Cleo always accompanied her father and
          brothers
          on the morning "sap runs" (described to me as the collecting of buckets
          which
          had been hung to
          catch sap from the pine trees, for what purpose I don't know). Cleo was
          said to
          have been a boisterous and noisy child, always showing off, singing, and
          cracking jokes. Because of this, she came to be called "Smilin' Jack" and
          later
          simply Jack. Clyde
          stayed behind with the womenfolk in the kitchen, helping with chores and
          cooking for the family and farmhands. She was nicknamed "Nigger Jim" which
          was
          eventually shortened to Jim. The twins were called Jack and Jim by the
          family
          for the remainder of
          their lives.

          Another anecdote has Clyde Myree finding out the actual spelling of her
          middle
          name when she was a grown woman with children of her own. She had always
          thought it was Myree. When she finally discovered that it was recorded as
          Maree
          on her birth
          certificate, she was so upset that she had the birth certificate amended
          to show
