Photo of George B Becker born 1836 and his son Friend William Becker born 1858. The photo was taken in 1861.

The Becker family spent most of their lives in Blenheim, Breakabeen, Conesville and Gilboa and Amsterdam, NY.

In Blenheim, Friend William lived in a small house by the Creamery (which is no longer there) with his wife Della Rogers. During the late 1880's and early 1890's his children Ola and Golda were born there. Ora Louise was born in the tenant house of Lansing Manor.

The family later moved to Conesville and resided at the Gleason Snyder place where daughters Flossie and Helen were born.

In time, the family relocated to Five Points (near Broome Center) where the girls grew up and were educated at the local schools.

Friend William Becker died in 1930, his father, George B Becker, a Schoharie Co Palatine descendent, died in 1895.
