Rev William Aaron Beck
Birth: Feb. 27, 1848
Wayne County
Kentucky, USA
Death: Sep. 25, 1922
Rose Crossroads
Russell County
Kentucky, USA

Preacher Beck, he was called. He was a circuit rider at one time, occasionally taking one of his children or grandchildren with him, on his rounds. He drove a horse and buggy.

He was the minister at Mount Pleasant Methodist Church near Esto, KY. He is buried in the cemetery there, in the church yard.

It is said he was an eloquent man, with a clear strong voice. He had a large library of books for that time in history and he made good use of it.

He and his wife, Mary Catherine, raised a wonderful family of highly educated children. He was my grandmother Lois Jones father.
