From the biography of her son, Thomas P. Beckes, in "History of Knox & Daviess Counties Indiana," pp. 312-313:
"The mother [Elizabeth Frederick] was of a family of very early settlers and of Dutch descent. When she was but eleven years old she was taken prisoner by Indians, but in a few days made her escape. She was brought up, lived and died in this county [Knox, IN], her death occurring April 9, 1856 [Note: this is different from her tombstone date], and the father's [Benjamin Vincennes Beckes] occurring December 3, 1859. When she was married to Mr. Beckes she was the widow of Mr. Rea [should be Pea], a very early settler."
Benjamin Vincennes Beckes (1786 - 1859)
Ann Beckes Hayes (1816 - 1886)*
