Beckerle Lumber a New York Lumber TRADITION
A Beckerle family member has been part of the timber industry in New York since the 1800's when the first Beckerle's
left their farming roots in Biblis Germany and came to Pearl River New York.
Johann Beckerle started the New York lumber tradition when he arrived in New York in 1859. This tradition was continued by his son Philip Beckerle.
Philip Beckerle ran a lumber mill where Philip's son Laurence received his first experience working with wood.
Laurence Beckerle Sr. started Beckerle lumber, where his son Laurence Jr.(Pete) got his start in the lumber business.
The New York tradition continues to this day with Pete's son Laurence Beckerle III working in the business.
So not only is Beckerle lumber a NEW YORK LUMBER tradition, it is a FAMILY tradition!

Young Philip received his first schooling in Nanuet and later in New York City. While still in his teens
he started the wood cutting business, cutting cord wood for the wood burning locomotives. He later sold wood for the railroad ties
to the approaching railroad. The laying of the tracks through Pearl River, then known as Middletown and later
as Muddy Brook, took place in 1870. At this time there were thirty two families dwelling in Middletown (Pearl River).
He married Pauline Miller (1861-1933) and settled down to a productive life in a growing Pearl River.
Some of his other notable achievements included being on the committee which laid out the wide streets of Pearl River.
He was also one of those responsible for building the original Catholic church in town. His immediate family included three daughters.
Miss Margaretta Beckerle (1890-1976), Miss Anne Beckerle (1897-1967). Anne worked for a time as a nurse for the radio city music hall rockettes!
and Sister Mary Pauline. He also had five sons. John P., Joseph, Alfred,
George (co-inventor of the automatic pin setter developed by AMF),
and Laurence Thomas. In 1940, a year after Philip died, Laurence started Beckerle Lumber.
