1. Census in 1860 in Dover, Racine, Wisconsin, USA. 5 The 1860 census recorded John C. Beecher, postmaster, 52, living with wife Rebecca, 50; daughter Mary, 17; and son Gustavus, 14. Everyone was born in Hessen Darmstadt (Germany). Their real estate was valued at $2,000 and personal estate $100, and oddly this is listed next to Rebecca and not John.
