Life history of Janius Jacobson Beck

Contributor: Craig Thrasher Created: 2 years ago Updated: 7 months ago

Janius Jacobson Beck taken from the book "In Memory of the Beck's" compiled by Stephen F Beck Janius Jacobson Beck was born June 8, 1864, at Aalborg, Denmark. He was the son of Fredrick Jacobson and Henrika Hansen Beck. His parents were converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. His father was born at Leda and his mother at Aalborg, Denmark. They were married March 23, 1856. His father served in the war of 1864 between Denmark and Germany. Shortly after returning home from war, he heard of the Mormon missionaries. He was curious to hear them and when the opportunity came, he at once became interested, and soon was convinced of the truth. He and his wife were baptized December 27, 1865. The following spring the spirit of gathering was strongly manifested in the little home circle by the preparation to come to Utah. On May 20, 1866, Fredrick, his wife Henrika, and three children, Emma, Julius, and Janius sailed for America with six other families of Saints. One of them was his brother, Christian Beck. They crossed the Atlantic on the ship, "Kenilworth". It was an old sail ship and that was its last voyage across the ocean. It took eight weeks and three days to make the trip. While crossing, it caught on fire three times and was so badly burned it was condemned in the New York Harbor. Upon reaching New York, many of the little company died with the severe heat. The rest were rushed to Omaha, Nebraska, where they rested for a week while arrangements were made for the trip across the plains. Equipment being very scarce made it necessary for those who were able, to walk most of the way. They arrived in Salt Lake City October 1866, under the command of Captain Rawlins. Andrew Jensen, the church historian, was in this company. They lived in Salt Lake City two years and then moved to Alpine. Although "Yan," as he was called, remembered little of 75 this trip, as he was between two three years old at this time, his parents never tired of telling him about it. His early life was spent much the same as other children of pioneers. It required young and old to work to make a livelihood. Yan spent a lot of his time in the surrounding hills and canyons herding cattle and sheep. Although barefoot the entire summers, roaming the hills, his boyfriends had a lot of good times and made their work their play. His education was limited to one season with Richard T. Booth as his teacher. It was remarkable, his intelligence with such little schooling. He grew to manhood never idle and always willing to take part in anything that was of upbuilding nature. He was married to Mary Jane Hemmett (Hamnett) May 2, 1885. Their first home was a little adobe home just north of his father's home. Here their first child was born. They lived for a short time on Highland while he was employed by Jacob Beck. Later, they bought a two room adobe house from Mr. Poulson. As their family grew, he built on and remodeled until a comfortable home was theirs. Here he and his wife lived until they died. He was a good provider. He owned a good farm some of the best of livestock. He was always interested in everything that went on in the little community, especially in recreation. He and his wife belonged to the Alpine Glee Club which spent many an evening at their home and homes of their friends enjoying their singing and games. This is one way they had of supplying their own amusement. This club sang at many of the gatherings in the ward . He was one of the organizers, and the largest stockholder of the Alpine Amusement Hall, built just east of where our city hall now stands. This was a great place of amusement and dancers from all over the county came here to enjoy themselves. Some of the best dramatic talent was frequently engaged to entertain the people of Alpine. He was continuously a member of the Water Board of which he was president part of the time. He was also president of the alpine Cattle Range until his death. He was chairman of the Democratic party for several years and always ready to uphold what he believed to be right. He and his wife worked on the old folks committee for years. Part of this time he spent as chairman until his death. His Iove and devotion for his mother was outstanding and many happy hours they spent together. Although not too religiously inclined, he always cheerfully paid his donations and obligations to his church. They were the parents of 12 children, ten of whom are still living. They are, Josephine Mayne, Charles Elmer, James Henry, David Fredrick, Melva, Leland, Jennie, Lerve, Orlean, and James Milton. Although a young man when he died, he had accomplished a great deal. He was a highly respected citizen and did a great deal in making our community what it is today. He died March 12, 1916, in the Provo hospital.

Life timeline of Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett)

Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was born on 6 Mar 1866
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was 9 years old when Winston Churchill, English colonel, journalist, and politician, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Nobel Prize laureate (d. 1965) Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill was a British politician, army officer, and writer, who was Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955. As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party.
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was 19 years old when Louis Pasteur successfully tests his vaccine against rabies on Joseph Meister, a boy who was bitten by a rabid dog. Louis Pasteur was a French biologist, microbiologist and chemist renowned for his discoveries of the principles of vaccination, microbial fermentation and pasteurization. He is remembered for his remarkable breakthroughs in the causes and prevention of diseases, and his discoveries have saved many lives ever since. He reduced mortality from puerperal fever, and created the first vaccines for rabies and anthrax. His medical discoveries provided direct support for the germ theory of disease and its application in clinical medicine. He is best known to the general public for his invention of the technique of treating milk and wine to stop bacterial contamination, a process now called pasteurization. He is regarded as one of the three main founders of bacteriology, together with Ferdinand Cohn and Robert Koch, and is popularly known as the "father of microbiology".
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was 25 years old when Thomas Edison patents the motion picture camera. Thomas Alva Edison was an American inventor and businessman, who has been described as America's greatest inventor. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and the long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was 40 years old when Albert Einstein publishes his first paper on the special theory of relativity. Albert Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist who developed the theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics. His work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. He is best known to the general public for his mass–energy equivalence formula E = mc2, which has been dubbed "the world's most famous equation". He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics "for his services to theoretical physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect", a pivotal step in the development of quantum theory.
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was 48 years old when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie, Duchess of Hohenberg, were assassinated by a Yugoslav nationalist named Gavrilo Princip in Sarajevo, sparking the outbreak of World War I. Archduke Franz Ferdinand, Archduke of Austria-Este was a member of the imperial Habsburg dynasty, and from 1896 until his death the heir presumptive (Thronfolger) to the Austro-Hungarian throne. His assassination in Sarajevo precipitated Austria-Hungary's declaration of war against Serbia, which in turn triggered a series of events that resulted in Austria-Hungary's allies and Serbia's declaring war on each other, starting World War I.
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was 63 years old when Babe Ruth becomes the first baseball player to hit 500 home runs in his career with a home run at League Park in Cleveland, Ohio. George Herman "Babe" Ruth Jr. was an American professional baseball player whose career in Major League Baseball (MLB) spanned 22 seasons, from 1914 through 1935. Nicknamed "The Bambino" and "The Sultan of Swat", he began his MLB career as a stellar left-handed pitcher for the Boston Red Sox, but achieved his greatest fame as a slugging outfielder for the New York Yankees. Ruth established many MLB batting records, including career home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), slugging percentage (.690), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164); the latter two still stand as of 2018. Ruth is regarded as one of the greatest sports heroes in American culture and is considered by many to be the greatest baseball player of all time. In 1936, Ruth was elected into the Baseball Hall of Fame as one of its "first five" inaugural members.
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) was 74 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
Mother M. Jane Beck (Hamnett) died on 11 Nov 1943 at the age of 77
