  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Becher 
  first-born;  a  youth,  the  second  son  of  Benjamin  (Gen.  46:21), 
  who  came  down  to  Egypt  with  Jacob.  It  is  probable  that  he 
  married  an  Ephraimitish  heiress,  and  that  his  descendants  were 
  consequently  reckoned  among  the  tribe  of  Ephraim  (Num.  26:35;  1 
  Chr.  7:20,  21).  They  are  not  reckoned  among  the  descendants  of 
  Benjamin  (Num.  26:38).
