Earliest Becker I know of is Julius Becker, born in Russia, married Lena (I don't know her maiden name).  They lived in and around Boston, MA.  They had several children, and from a search, I can confirm that they are Leo, Nason, Edith and Bertha.  I do think there were other sons though.  Nason was my grandfather, born in 1911.

A cousin had a DNA test done on my dad since he is a direct male line from

Germany.  Got pretty much what was expected:  R1b.

The whole thing is R1b1a2a1a1, Western Centum Indo-European.

Sounds like you've done some good research!

My Beckers start with Jacob Becker of Hessen-Darmstadt, Germany.

He married a Miss Rohrbach and that's about all we know.  There aren't any in my family who are familiar with German.


Jacob's son, Adam (b 1811), came to the US in 1847 with his wife, Mary Newkomet, and four children:  Adam, Mary, Phillip and Jacob.  Two of Adam Sr brothers, Jacob and John, had already emigrated and John met the family in Milwaukee after they had traveled thru the canals and lakes. 

The family settled in Davis, Stephenson County, Illinois.  There were more children:  John, George, Elizabeth, Henry, Helen and Daniel.  Daniel is my 2G grandfather and I was raised on the farm he started in Cass County, Iowa.


Matthew, where in Iowa were your Beckers?

My earliest known Becker ancestor is my Great Great Granfather Andrew Becker who was born in Reichenbach, Germany in the Baden Baden area in 1829. He married Eliza (Becker) and emigrated to the Boston, MA area in 1851. He lived in Dedham, MA most of the time and died at his daughter's home in Roxbury, MA in 1910. I have his father's name as either Ferdinand or John in different documents.
