Notes for S
USANNAH BECK:
Source: Article in Salem Democrat Wednesday 9 Sep 1925 titled "History of the Oldest Mill in Washington County", submitted by Mrs. Essie Beck Allen.
"George Beck, the founder of the mill, was the father of six boys, John, George, Andrew, William, Jacob and David." This article does not mention Susannah. However, when Susannah's brother, Andrew M. left the Mill Creek Church before leaving for Texas, a Susannah Beck left the church as the same time. Most likely, it was this Susannah.

War of 1812: Major, was in the battle of Tippecanoe, where he ranked as Major, and his bravery in that fight was highly commended. (Hist. of Wash. Co., IN, p. 576)

George Beck, Jr., at the age of 16, came to Indiana Territory with his father and brother, John Jacob, age 23, in about 1807. They had previously lived in Rowan (now Davidson) County, North Carolina. John Jacob and George Jr. located Mill Creek, and after their father, George, approved the location, it was decided it would be an excellent location for a gristmill. The next year, the remainder of the family and others traveling in their wagon train, including Elizabeth Claver Beck's sister, Susannah Claver Elliott, and her nine children, along with the brother, John Claver, moved there from where they had stayed the winter in Bear Grass (now Louisville, KY.) They began their life in Washington County, Indiana Territory in 1807 where the family founded "Beck's Mill".

George was an excellent bear hunter. He and his brother, John, had some harried experiences getting bears out of caves; but they were fearless.

Written in the histories of George Beck, Jr. it is stated that he and Elizabeth Masters had eleven children. There are several Infant Beck children buried in Beck's Cemetery, high on the hill at Beck's Mill, just south of Salem, Indiana.

Source: Salem-Democrat (unknown date) THE FORTS AND BLOCK-HOUSES, page 3
During Indian attacks, the settlers of the county flee for protection to the few blockhouses that have been erected. (In all, numbering about fifteen). These are located as follows: two called Beck's Fort near John Becks; one called Lick Fort at Royce's Lick; one at Samuel Catlins three miles north of Fredericksburg; one known as Logan's Fort near Kossuth in Monroe Township; one called the Hattabaugh Fort near Hattsburg; one at Salem where John Manley lives; one near Harristown; one, three miles southwest of Salem; one near Livonia; one near the Quaker Church; one known as Brock's Fort on the land of W. L. Reyman; one on Section 7 in the northwest part of Franklin Township; and one called the Fleenor Fort near Wesley Jones.

These "Forts" are usually heavy log cabins provided with port holes from which to shoot, and furnished to accomodate several families. In some instances, real forts are built, as at Hattabaugh's inclosure in Monroe Township, whre a row of log cabins provided with port holes is built together with a high block-house at each end. All this is then surrounded by a high fence o fheavy slabs planted firmly in the ground, so as to leave a space of about a rod around the cabins. Several of these block-houses or forts were built before the general uprising. Others have been hastily erected and occupied by the families of the settlers since the uprising.

George W. Beck

Posted by Jerry Mounts <jmounts@indy.net> on Wed, 13 May 1998
Surname: BECK, MASTERS

GEORGE W. BECK, A prominent citizen of Howard Township, was born January 25, 1832, being the sixth child in a family of thirteen born to George and Elizabeth (Masters) Beck. His people were natives of North Carolina, from whence they removed to Indiana in the early spring of 1807, settling on Mill Creek in the early spring of 1808. His schooling was very limited owing to the poor facilities at that early period. By his energy, however, he secured a fair practical education, enough to enable him to perform any business transactions. He stayed with his parents while they lived, the death of the father occurring on the 22d of September, 1876;; that of the mother in April, 1877. Mr. Beck has never been married, and is not a member of any church. In politics he is a Democrat, and is one of the successful farmers of the Township.
