BESKE

 

Links to the Helbron family come from the marriage of Stephen Smreker (Smrekar) to Josephine Pauline Sophia Beske on 8 Jun 1875 in Mud Creek, St. Clair Co., IL. Stephen’s eldest daughter, Maria Theresia, married John Jacob Helbron on 19 Nov 1907 in Logan Co., AR. Pauline, as she was known, was the daughter of Wilhelm Heinrich “Henry” Beske and Maria Antonetta “Antonia” Leising of Geseke, Westfalen, Germany. Henry, his wife and four daughters, and his father-in-law, Joseph Leising, all arrived in New York (Castle Garden) aboard the Leopold the First from Antwerp, Belgium on 2 May 1853. Family legend had said that the family immigrated when Henry’s youngest daughter, Pauline, was “just a baby”. Henry’s older brother, Caspar, his wife, and four children immigrated to the U.S. earlier, arriving in New Orleans via New York (Castle Garden) on 29 December 1851 aboard the Oldenburg from Bremen.

 

Both Beske families settled in St. Clair Co., IL, just across the Mississippi River, east of St. Louis, MO, in the small town of Mud Creek (in 1878, the name was changed to St. Libory) and the families first appear in the 1855 State Census of Illinois.  Caspar, his son Franz, and brother, Henry, all served with the Union Army in Co. “B”, 43rd IL Infantry during the Civil War. Henry was seriously wounded at the Battle of Pittsburgh Landing (Shiloh), TN on 6-7 April 1862. He was discharged on 1 Aug 1862 with total disability, but ultimately died of his wounds on 13 December 1863.

 

About 1878, Antonia Beske, together with daughters Josephine, Pauline, and Elisabeth’s daughter, Mary Huneke, moved with the Smreker family to Spielerville (now Subiaco) in Logan Co., AR. The rest of this Beske family remained in St. Clair County, IL.

Arrived with his parents in U.S. in 1851 but no further record of him has ever been located. He was not listed in the 1855 State Census of IL. Single, no children. [NOTE 2: In Feb 1993, information was received from a direct Beske descendant in Illinois that a John Beske had been a Chaplain at the Joliet Prison in Will Co., IL in the 1926 timeframe, but it is highly doubtful that this was RN=860 due to his age, 85! However, an initial attempt was made in early 2009 to contact the prison to verify that a Chaplain named “Beske” actually served there, but no response was ever received!  A second attempt was made in 2013 and their response was that their records did not go back that far! If the earlier information was valid, it was more likely that he was there during the 1890-1900 timeframe; however, he does not appear in either the 1870, 1880, or 1900 Censuses, at least under the Beske surname, so the issue remains unresolved!]

Henry was incorrectly listed in the 1860 Census of St. Clair County, IL as “Henry Baker”. [NOTE 3: Served as a Pvt., Co. “B”, 43rd IL Regiment, IL Infantry during the Civil War (Union).] He was seriously wounded in Battle of Pittsburgh Landing (Shiloh), TN on 6-7 Apr 1862, suffering a gunshot wound to his left thigh causing serious damage to his sciatic nerve. Discharged 1 Aug 1862 at St. Louis, St. Louis Co., MO. [NOTE 4: The Illinois Adjutant General’s Report stated Henry died of wounds on 15 May 1862. However, this has to be incorrect since another military record indicated that he had been examined by a physician on 10 Jul 1862, just prior to his discharge!]
