Surnames: Beck, Hawkins, Gilpin
I am researching the family of Larkin Beck who came to Parker County in 1858 with his three sons, Addison, Logan and Christopher. Larkin purchased 160 acres of land in Parker County on the Hood County line (abstract A-510)in 1859 from George W. Gilpin. All three sons were conscripted into the Confederate Army. Larkin took a wife in Texas, unknown, unknown. Logan escaped the Confederacy and joined the Union Army in Illinois where they originally came from. Christopher eventually went back to Illinois after the war. Both Larkin and Addison pledged their allegiance to the United States in 1967 then show up in Arkansas in the 1870 Census. Addison went on to be be a Deputy U.S. Marshall and was killed in the line of duty in Indian Territory. Larkin and Addison are both buried in Arkansas. Christopher learned to survey under R.A. Hawkins in Parker County. I am trying to learn any other information regarding the Beck's time in Parker County to include Larkin's wife's family, family stories etc...

Larkin's first wife was Malinda Stark. Malinda was the mother of Addison, Logan and Christopher. Larkin is my gggg grandfather. I have recently met (on ancestry) and have been in contact with my 6th cousin from Larkin's 2nd wife. I myself, still piecing things together in my spare time. I do have quite a bit of information that you may be looking for. I been given a terrific book about my family. Here is the direct line. My father Jerry Beck, grandfather - Albert Addison Beck. Gg grandfather, John Beck. Ggg grandfather - Logan Beck. Gggg Grandfather - Larkin Beck. Ggggg grandfather - Nathaniel Beck. I think I have it back tracked to a Henry Beck that immigrated from England back in 1635. I'm almost possitive that's right. Still researching. Please let me know if I can fill in any blanks...
