Thanks for the following sent by Wanda Collins:

Elza Dozier Beckwith Jr may have had another sibling. Lamar Beckwith .
I believe my mother in law is married to a sibling of Elza Dozier Beckwith. His name is Lamar Beckwith.

He is her second husband, she married him about a year after his first wife, Vervian Beckwith, died. They have been married about 19 years. Her name is Sybil Catherine , but she has always gone by Catherine . I am married to her son by her first marriage.

Charles A Beckwith is listed as a sibling of Elza Dozier Beckwith Jr. I recall Lamar telling my husband and me that Charles was his brother and told me that he was portrayed in the movie by John Wayne in a movie The Green Berets. What little Lamar told me about his brother is backed up by articles on Charles Alvin Beckwith. His place of birth, age and a few other bits of information , former real estate holdings also back up Lamar being related to Charles and thus Elza Dozier Beckwith.

Lamar is 93+ years old and has Alzheimer's and my mother in law , Catherine is elderly too. So I can’t ask him specific information.

I have seen pictures of Charles and he looks just like Lamar.

Lamar does have two sons, David and Raymond. David lives in Georgia and Raymond lives in North Carolina.
