  • Notes 
    • Farmer from Berghausen, Braunfels, Germany.

      There are three Becker families on the Kukkus First Settlers List (David, Balthasar and Johann Adam). All three originate from Berghausen, Solms-Braunfels Principality, Hessen, Germany. From information in the Solms-Braunfels Archives we know that David is the son of Bernhardt Becker, but the other Beckers are not mentioned in that document. Birthdates for the three are 1743, 1745 and 1747.

      Information from the Ortsfamilienbuch of Werdorf, Braunfels shows that the three above mentioned Kukkus immigrants are indeed all children of Johann Bernhard Becker. Unfortunately, the mothers name is not listed.

      Name David Becker of Berghausen appears in Solms-Braunfels Archives as asking to emigrate to Volga Russia in 1766. It is also mentioned that he is the son of Bernhardt Becker. The other two Beckers are not mentioned in those archives. All three Becker families in Kukkus are from Berghausen, the same town in Braunfels. David and Balzer are in the same family group on the transport List. Johann Adam does not appear on the transport list (It is not complete).
