      So would I. apparently none were ever taken. This almost a solid fact based upon the nature of photography during that era. Photography was not available as a rule in any place other than the bigger US cities until the late 1840′s. And then it was a hit and miss situation as to availability. Since Becknell died in 1856 it is very likely that a photographer did not appear in Clarksville Texas until some time after that date. Also, Becknell was 68/69 in 1856 and, even if the opportunity presented itself, he may not wanted to a picture taken due to his age.

  14. leutricia williams says:

    William Becknell had a Grandson by the name of Ben Becknell and Ben Bencknell has two daughters withe my sister they are both passed on now.

  15. leutricia williams says:

    The mom and dad and one of the sisters has passed on their is only child alive that i know of. but Yvonne had five children and she has more then twenty Grand children and several Great Grand children so the Becknell blood lives on, Yvonne is in her sixty’s and not in the best of health, but I pray for her every day!! Her father is from MO he lived in Clarksville TX for a while. I’m not sure how Ben Becknell and my sister go together. Thank GOD my sisters daughter still has her dads

    death and military Records to prove the FACT!!

    I appreciate all of the information you have accumulated about Captain Becknell. Sometime around his death, his son, John Calhoun Becknell, left Texas and came to California. I am his great-great grandson. I hope to make a trek to Clarksville in the next year or two, and will certainly try to see your presentation.
