Who, if you know, were John's parents, Barnee?

Hi Barnee

Just a bit more information from your other posting
www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,1307.15.html
 to help us search for you  :D

I  am researching my grandmother first husbands tree. He was a John Beckman(N) who parents were Henry Beckmann and Maria Christina ( nee  Peterson )Beckman. They originated from Europe.  My grandmother married Mr. Beckman in 1914 in Australia. Now Mr Henry Beckman and Maria  travelled to Australia from the America's in around 1863 and was known to be in NZ before arriving in Australia. . Could there be a connection...... as there are a few Beckmans in Sydney area and some from South Australia and  Victoria Australia. You may  wish to view online indexes on those states mention. I am still looking for John Beckman,,,also known as Albert, John, Charles just to name a few alias ....  I would like to find the mystery of my missing Mr. Beckman... as no one knows what has happened.Cheers Barnee

Hi Raylen!

Your query was ten years ago but I believe the man you are looking for may be my grandfather. I have been doing a deep dive into tracking down his family history and if I'm correct, he indeed went by many aliases, I am now discovering! I'd really love to find out what you can tell me about his double/triple/quadruple lives, as my mother had no idea and only knew him by one name.

If your mysterious John Beckman is my grandfather, he died in 1964 in Ballarat, Victoria Australia. He had many siblings, most of them half-siblings, and I believe one full sibling. I believe I have found records for at least four children including my mother, and am scouring to find perhaps more.

If your grandmother was Maria 'Gertrude' Reidy, whom John was married to from 1914-1922, then I have found a John Murray Beckman b1914, Albert Petersen Murray Beckman b.1917, and David Murray Beckman, aka 'Beckman', b.1922.

If your grandmother was another of Beckman's marriages I would love to hear from you, hopefully together we can piece together some mysteries?

Hopefully you are still active here and we can connect.

Em

Hello Em,

Welcome to RootsChat :)

I checked on this member for you and can see that they have turned off email notification from us so they have opted for no further contact. I am very sorry about this it is most unusual as most continue to be interested.  ??? Old members do get in touch all the time, hoping that this is the case for you.

Regards

Sarah
