Has anyone done a survey on the Beck's in Lancaster County PA?
I am searching for John Christian/Christopher Beck born 1787 in that
area. I would like to make a list of all the Beck's residing in
Lebanon county, Chester County and Lancaster.
The 1790 Census lists 37 Beck families in Pennsylvania. Does anyone
know how many in Lancaster Co?
