Life History of Isadora Jamison, Peter Jacobsen Beck, Margaret Boddison

Colaborador: 10131307t@gmail.com Created: 1 year ago Updated: 9 months ago

Isadora Jamison, Peter Jacobsen Beck, Margaret Boddison From the book “In Memory of the Becks” compiled by Stephen F Beck Peter Beck, the son of Stephen and Kerstina Jacobsen Beck was born in Virborn, Denmark, October 10, 1850. He was the second son having an older brother Jacob. His parents were converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When young Peter was between the age of eleven and twelve years old he sailed with his father and mother and the other boys from Hamburg, Germany. His younger brothers were Christian, Stephen, and Theodore. There were six hundred other passengers, most of whom were Mormons bound for the same destination. They sailed on the good ship “Franklin” and suffered the many privations incident to steerage passage at that time. The food rations were small and of poor quality, and as a result much sickness prevailed. To use Peter’s own word, “Over fifty deaths occurred during the sea voyage and as was customary at that time they were rolled in canvas or burlap, weighted and dumped overboard. I was a young boy and inexperienced and very homesick and the impression made on my mind of this gruesome sight will never be erased from my memory.” Young Peter Beck met these difficulties with fortitude and a boyish faith in the future. He was blessed with a great heritage; the heritage of a clean sound body, and a keen active mind. The journey of Peter as a young boy from his native land of Denmark was beset by many hardships which were common to the early pioneers of Utah. The long tedious ocean trip to the United States, followed by the trek across the broad expanse of mountain and prairies land by ox teams and horses were long to be remembered. Quoting Peter again, “By this time we started on our journey across the great stretch of country between the Missouri River and Great Salt Lake, I had become more reconciled to conditions, and being a young healthy boy, was beginning to enjoy my experience. The one great drawback was my inability to either talk or understand the English language. Fortunately I formed the friendship of an English boy of about my own age and I rapidly acquired a knowledge of the language. This boy, whose name I cannot now recollect and myself along with all members of the company who were well and strong, walked the entire distance from the Missouri River to Salt Lake City. After a few days in the Valley the family moved to Lehi, Utah. Soon after their arrival, young Peter obtained employment as a sheep herder. He followed this work for some time, and when a young man of eighteen started in the cattle business on a small scale for himself. He prospered in the work and followed it for about ten years. He planted the first trees at what is now known as Saratoga Springs. He was one of the first settlers on Highland. On searching through the old Homestead records in the Federal Building in Salt Lake City we found that Peter Beck took out a Homestead in the year 1878. This homestead consisted of eighty acres of land. At this time Peter was twenty-eight years of age. On one of his trips to Goshen, located on the Southern shore of Utah Lake, he met and courted a young lady, Isadora Jamison, a beautiful girl of face and figure. They were married in the old Endowment House on Temple Square, Salt Lake City on the 29th day of December 1873. They located on Highland bench, where Peter had built a modest home and prospered. To this union, seven children were born, Stephen, Florence, Avery, Martha and William, also a set of twins who died in infancy. When William was a young man of sixteen or seventeen he met with an accident which caused his death. He was stacking hay at the Oscar Bergland ranch at Gunnison, Utah, when a Jackson fork accidentally ran through his kidney. Stephen and Martha left American Fork in their early youth and went to live in Vernal, Utah. Peter Beck and his wife, Isadora, were divorced and later in life Peter Beck, at the age of thirty six, married another good and beautiful woman by the name of Margaret Boddison, who at the age of fourteen was converted to Mormonism in Staffordshire, England and left her parents and brothers and sisters to come to Utah with two Mormon missionaries. She settled in Alpine at the home of Mr and Mrs Benjamin Bates. She was a very lonely and homesick girl and for many years longed for her native land. To this union were born ten children, Laura, Emma, Byron, Teresa, Knord, Calvert, Margaret, Daniel, and Milton and one daughter who died at birth. They lived in Alpine for a few years then moved back to Highland where they built a comfortable brick home. Later in life they purchased the Jackie Robinson home about two miles out of American Fork on the Alpine Road. During the years 1914-15-16 and 17 Peter was under contract with the United States Government to carry mail between American Fork and Topliff. The route was through a stretch of country where in winter the roads were but little better than a trail. It was in November, 1918, that tragedy struck their home. Their young son Dan, who was sixteen years of age, was accidentally shot by one of his companions while they were cleaning a shot gun. He passed away about four weeks after the accident from lockjaw, caused from the buckle of his overall which lodged in his shoulder. Although life went on, the effects of this tragedy could not be erased from their memory and the health of Peter seemed to fail from then on. At the age of 76 he passed away at the family home on February 26, 1926. Peter Beck was retiring in his disposition, but in his quiet unassuming way made many warm friends who loved him for his integrity of purpose and for his clean, upright manner of living. He kept the divinity of the truth of the gospel he embraced in his early youth. At the time of his death he was survived by his wife, Margaret, and twelve children, forty-one grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. On December 26, 1928, his wife Margaret passed away at the home of a daughter, Laura Huish at Magna, Utah at the age of sixty. Throughout her life, she made God her confidant. She was faithful to the gospel trusting in God’s wisdom in all things. Two years after her passing tragedy struck the family again. Milton the youngest was struck by a coal truck, while he was crossing the street delivering milk. He died instantly, leaving a wife, Archelous Lavoin, and a small son, Milton Jr. Since this time Stephen, Avery, and Laura have all passed away. Peter Beck and his first and second wives could have not better monument than their children who have all brought credit to their parents.
