F.W. Beckman
Clayton Twp.

F. W. Beckman, of the firm of Beckman Bros., dealers in general merchandise, was born in Clayton County, Ia., on June 12, 1853. He was reared on his father's farm, and educated in the district schools. When fifteen years of age he left the paternal roof and went to Conover, Ia., where he clerked for his brother two years, and in 1870 came to Clayton City. He entered the mercantile store of Shroeder & Beckman as clerk, and remained in that capacity until the death of A. E. Beckman, when he was admitted as a partner, which relationship he still sustains.
