Charles Herbert Beek Birth: Mar. 11, 1852 Death: Aug. 19, 1932 (conflicting death date Aug. 24, 1936?)
Charles was the son of Joseph Beek 1800-1882 & Ann F. Leslie 1814-1891. He was one of 10 children; Mary 1835-?, Charlotte 1837-?, Joseph 1839-1902, Nancy 1840-?, Alexander 1841-1912, James 1845-?, Sarah 1847-1918, Eliza 1849-? William 1849-?.The census report states that his father Joseph Beek was born in Ireland and came to Ireland to live. He meet his Canadian wife Ann in New Brunswick. It also stated that he couldn't read or write, he was a farmer. Charles was a large man, standing at least 6' 4" or taller. Charles married Martha Jane Gilks and they had seven children; Rhoda 188-1979, Cornelius 1890-1977, Honner 1882-1953, Charles 1876-1936, Scott 1886-?, Hannah 1883-?, Nancy 1889-1913.Charles is buried with his wife "Jane", his son and his wife Charles Henry & Mary Francis Beek & another daughter Nancy J. Beek who reportedly died from kidney disease. It is reported that Nancy had diabetes and the diabetes probably damaged her kidneys and she died at the age of 24. All of these folk along with a Granddaughter are buried in the same row # 9. These four do not have a headstone yet. NY cousin and I are raising money to get them the proper headstone that they deserve.

From Find a Grave
Martha Jane (Gilks) Beek
Birth: Sep. 21, 1852
Death: Jan. 27, 1939
"Jane" was the daughter of John Gilks 1794-1878 and Nancy Agnes Mooers 1823-1892. Jane was one of eight children, James 1841-1909, Peter 1843-?, John Leverett 1845-?, Emeline 1848-?, Zacharias 1852-1929, Mary Ann 1857-1937, Cornelius 1858-1882. Jane married Charles Herbert Beek and they had seven children; Charles 1876-1936, Honor 1882-1953, Scott 1886-?, Nancy 1889-1913, Cornelius 1890-1977, Rhoda 1885-1979, Hannah 1883-?.Jane a very strict and devote Anglican church goer. She helped out with the church activities so much that they honored her with a plaque that hangs in the church reception hall at St. Andrew's. Jane was known always to wear her white, very starched, full length apron with a long black dress. She also played midwife to many in the area, it was reported. She died from pneumonia. She is buried along side her husband, daughter Nancy and her granddaughter Pansy in an unmarked grave. I have spoken with the groundskeeper and family members. My cousin and I are raising money to honor these Four Beeks with a long awaited headstone. They so deserve it. We hope by this summer. As soon as we do I will post a photo as soon as I get it.
