Another BECKETT tragedy

You may remember the sad case of Maria BECKETT who killed her granddaughter in Dec 1856 while of unsound mind (story here). I've just found another sad story for the Beckett family, four years after this event. One of Maria's sons, Jesse, was "killed by a horse" in January 1861 according to the records of the Lake Street Baptist Church in Leighton Buzzard who counted the Becketts among their members. Jesse was 25.
