Query: BECK/ DAVIS/ BROWN of Jefferson COunty

Saluda Twp., Jefferson Co. 1850 U.S. Census lists Rebecca BECK 48, alone with her children all born in NC: Matilda 18, Wm. 17, Emily A. 15, Catherine 8, and Mary C.2. The oldest daughter. Matilda married Abijah DAVIS and lived and died in Jefferson Co. (Matilda's DC names Rebecca Hatley and Madden Beck of NC as parents.) Wm. BECK, whose name I believe was misunderstood, most likely is Winfield Scott BECK, and would be my Civil War great-great-grandfather. Winfield m. in Jefferson CO in Sep. 1856 to Elizabeth Ann Brown and had two children: Mary Alice and Oren Winfield BECK. Mother Rebecca BECK and three youngest daughters cannot be found again. I would be most interested in communicating with other BECK researcher's with ties to Rebecca BECK and NC BECK families.
