Colonel Samuel Beck
Samuel Beck was born in Randolph County, North Carolina, in 1796. His parents, Jeffrey Beck, Jr. and Mary McDaniel Beck were living in close proximity to her family where they all owned land. While Samuel was still a young boy, around 1805/06, the family decided to move to South Carolina. Jeffrey formed and led a wagon caravan to Pickens, South Carolina. The wagon caravan consisted of Jeffrey's family and the families of his married children. Samuel grew up in Pickens, Oconee County, South Carolina, on a plantation which his father owned on Little River. Tobitha Langston was a daughter of a neighbor. Her parents, James and Joannah Langston, also owned land on Little River. Samuel and Tabitha were married in 1812. Samuel was an unusually large man for it is said he weighed over 300 pounds. He was six feet tall, had dark hair, black eyes, and a fair complexion. He and Tabitha had their first four children while they lived in South Carolina. In 1822 Samuel bought land in Rabun, a newly formed county in Georgia. This was just across the river and South of where their parents lived in South Carolina. On this land they built their first home on Dick's Creek. It was a crude cabin of hewn logs and puncheon floor.--from the book "Ancestors and Descendants of Colonel Samuel Beck and Tabitha Langston" by Susan Lewis Koyle and Patricia Lewis Cramer
