Hi Ron, You may want to dig a bit into John T (or F, or G.) Becraft. The marriage record in Ripley Co., IN shows him as John T. married Melissa Jane. Census in 1880 shows him as JOHN nmi BECRAFT. The Arkansas census in 1900 shows him as John G.

I had gotten the names of John G. and Jane's later children Charles, Ira etc. from another researcher many years ago and had a hard time connecting him with the John T or F who married Melissa Jane. The 1880 census had only two daughters. Ripley County records showed the daughters and finally found a connection through the newspaper accounts in Ripley Co., naming brothers of Nora Ellen as Charles and Ira. Mother Jennie.

I spent a lot of time trying to find real proof of the names and connections but finally decided to go with John G. and Melissa Jane and added the boys from 1900 census to the two earlier daughters.
