I am searching for the family of Jacob George Beck born in Heide Schleswig-Holstein 10/11/1826. He married Katherine Boll or Ball. They migrated to U.S. and Katherine Died in Anchor, Ill. I'd like to know about their ancestors.

I too am researching this family. My husband's great-grandmother is Catherine Beck Eggers. From ancestry.com and some old labeled family pictures, Jacob George Beck and Katherine Ball (Bohl or Bahl) are her parents. So far I have found only one brother for Catherine...Jacob. There are trees on ancestry that show Jacob's line, and of course, I am working on Catherine's line. Do you have information about the family before they migrated to the USA?

I have a copy of an old letter written by Jacob's gr-father when a son was in a Danish prison in the 1850's war. As I recall it mentions a few first names of family. I also have an old photo with Jacob's father pictured. I have Katherine Boll's German Bible with Boll on the cover.
