   Another name for Angeline was Angelina Eisenhuth.7 8

  Noted events in her life were:

1. She appeared on the census in 1850 in Pottsville, Schuylkill, PA. 4 In 1850 living in the South Ward of Pottsville is Jacob Bieger. Obviously the census taker was confused by his German pronounciation of his surname! Jacob Bieger, tailer, age 36, is living with wife Angeline, 35; William, 12; Jacob, 11; Hiram, 8; Benjamin, 6; George, 3; and Nathan, 8 months old when the census was recorded on 29 Aug 1850. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania.

2. Trinity Lutheran in Pottsville where the church book records all of the children of Jacob Beacher and Angelina were baptized on the same day on 28 Sep 1853 in Pottsville: Trinity Lutheran Church, Schuylkill, PA. 7

3. She appeared on the census in 1860 in New Castle Twp., Schuylkill, PA. 9 In 1860 living in the New Castle Township is Jacob Bucher, day laborer, age 48, living with wife Angeline, 45; William, day laborer, 21; Jacob, day laborer, 19; Hiram, day laborer, 17; B. Franklin, day laborer, 15; George, 12; and Nathan, 9; and Ann M., 7. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania. The post office is Broad Mountain.

4. She appeared on the census in 1870 in New Castle Twp., Schuylkill, PA. 10 The 1870 census lists Jacob Beacher, the first census to spell his name this way. He is a laborer, age 57, living with wife, Angeline, 55; 3 sons who are all laborers: William, 31; George, 22; Nathan, 21; and daughter Mary, 18. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania. The post office is Broad Mountain.

Angeline is listed again in the 1870 Census as Angelina Becker, the head of a household in Shenandoah city occupied by her children William, Herman, Benjamin, George, Nathan, and Mary. It appears the family had two homes, the home they had in 1860 census near Broad Mountain and another in Shenandoah, perhaps because the boys were employed as miners and wished to live near their work.

5. She appeared on the census in 1870 in Shenandoah, Schuylkill, PA. 11 Angelina Becker [sic], 55, is listed as the head of the household. Living with her: William, 31; Heiram [sic], 28; Benjamin, 26; George, 24; Nathan, 20; and Mary, 18. The men are all employed as miners. Everyone was born in Pennsylvania. The post office is Shenandosh.
[Note: the family shows up twice in the 1870 census in both Shenandoah and Broad Mountain in New Castle Township. Some members are in both locations, so the family either had two homes operating, or, moved in 1870 and happened to be counted in each location.]

6. She appeared on the census in 1880 in Shenandoah, Schuylkill, PA. 1 3 The census listed Jacob Beacher (age 67), living with his wife, Angeline (65); sons William (41, occupation miner); and Nathan (28, occupation miner).


Angeline married John Jacob Beacher Sr., son of Jacob Biecher and Maria Michael, in 1837 in Pottsville, Schuylkill, PA.1 2 (John Jacob Beacher Sr. was born on 22 Dec 1812 in Lebanon, Lebanon, PA 3 12, christened in Dec 1812 in Lebanon: Salem Evangelical Lutheran Church, Lebanon, PA,12 died after 1880 in , Schuylkill, PA 13 and was buried in Shenandoah Heights: Odd Fellows Cemetery, Schuylkill, PA 14.)
