HI Cheryl

that's no problem but I thought it would be a waste of our time for 2 people to be researching the same thing for you. I only research wills as a RAOK and with Mordecai being a first settler, it was bugging me that all his children weren't documented. I always post personal research that I do and I will be posting an abstract of his will and the census info I have found. The some for the Becks, which if you go back and reread, I said that Peter or John Beck were of the right age to have been Mary's father if Andrew Beck was not her father. that is per the ages listed on the 1840 census. There are no further obits to lookup as the obit file does not site a paper and page. I will email you a summary of what I found on the census, the will, and online books. You can rule out Mordecai. You can carry forward your search from what you find on the summary and research the census further etc. I have found all the info that I can.

Thanks and good luck in your search
