HAROLD BECKER was born in 1907. He appeared on the census of 1910 at 5043 S. Justine St., Chicago, Cook County, Illinois. He died in 1910. He is listed in the 1910 census, but died later that year. Harold Becker died of Diptheria. He was waked in the house (as was the norm) and there was a glass cover over the casket because Diptheria was highly contagious so that was the 'rule', but their mother, Sophia, made them all kiss him goodbye and opened the glass cover for them to do so. Olga got it, too, but obviously survived.
