WILLIAM H. BEEKMAN

     WILLIAM H. BEEKMAN (my ancestor) was born 1851, and died 1931 in Portsmouth, Ohio. He married ELIZABETH TILTON. She was born 1851, and died 1933 in Portsmouth, Ohio. They were known as Ma and Pa Beekman by their grandchildren. Pa's brother Robert went out west to the California Gold Rush and then on to the Alaskan Klondike Rush. He never returned, so the family presumed that he died with the thousands of others that did not survive the hard times of that period.
