The Beekens may have originated in the Netherlands. Or not. Hector Beeken moved to Ohio from Worcestershire, England with his first wife, Catherine Lloyd, about 1835. After divorcing Catherine, he married Sarah Ann Liles in 1858.
The Beeken’s had a farm in Erie County, a hop and skip south of Sandusky.
In the next generation there were three Beeken-Harris marriages.
