Early 1900 Pattison Residents
Back row: unk, Jim Cliett, Robert Beckendorf, Peter Clapp, John Greer Front: Ed Adams, Self Foster, Joe Cliett, Isaac Foster, Charley Garrett, Mr. Vales. Robert Beckendorff. Born 1850, died 1932 and buried in Katy Magnolia Cemetery. His first wife is buried in the Pattison Cemetery next to the Catholic church. Robert Beckendorff?s family lived where Hervey Vaclavik now lives ( Vaclavik Lane). After the first wife, Laura Campbell Beckendorff, died in 1896, Robert remarried to Martha Eudora Phillips, widow Pearson, in 1907. Laura died the summer of 1895 and the Beckendorffs had already claimed a section on the Katy prairie so son Milton Beckendorff moved onto this prairie land in November 1895 to stake the claim. The entire family soon moved there, thus the Beckendorff Road between Katy and Hockley. Robert Beckendorff is a cousin to my great grandmother Dora Kobs Neuman. However, he is a direct ancestor to Judge Glenn Beckendorff. Marie Neuman Gray
