Seek info on this Crane family in 1850 census for Sperry township in Clayton Co.
Wesley Crane age 40 his wife Eliza Beaty Crane age 34 and their children, Elizabeth age 14, James age 12, George age 10, Martin age 8, John age 4 and Cosanter age 2.
Hi, helpful Clayton County friends! I now seek information on a German Lutheran minister named F.W. Beckman (Beckmann?) who apparently moved from Clayton County, IA, to Auburn, NE. He established Nebraska churches from about 1865-1872 and died of a heart attack on a ship returning to Germany on 26 April 1885 (his survivors then included a daughter-in-law in Burr, NB). Attempting to determine any relationship he had to my KURDELMEIER family (a Kurdelmeier daughter near Clayton Center wed a Beckman of that era, but I have no marriage records on this half-sister of my great-grandfather).
Thanks from, Martha Mensink Oskvig in NW IA
(grand-daughter of Roy Kurdelmeier, now age 93 in Minnesota but born by Monona, IA, in 1908!)
