I also have copies of the St. James / Trinity Lutheran records for Fall Creek - and they don't appear there either. At St. John's Fall Creek there is a Friedericke Becker Joern (Johann) and a Louise Becker Priebe (August) in the records... they were not married at St. John's, but they had kids in the 1870's, so would be same age range as your Pauline Ernestine Becker. There is reference to one child being born in Chippewa County - so may be a clue for you. There is a Gustav Becker as a sponsor of one these kids, Wilhelmine Caroline Priebe in 1872. And... a Ludwig Becker is sponsor for Heinrich Alfred Hammler in 1881, an Alwine Becker sponsor (along with August Hammler) for Carl Edward Zenke in 1881. That's it for St. John's in Fall Creek up to 1999. There are no Heiman, Herriman, etc. in St. John's in Fall Creek... but perhaps this Hammler noted above could be a connection? The old German script was quite hard to make out sometimes, and one transcription error leads to many more - I know from personal experience! :-) In the St. James/Trinity records there is an Emma Clara Becker married there in 1896 - she was born in Wausau. I looked on Ancestry for this couple... maybe the marriage record you found is not the correct couple or they had a child 5 years before they were married or John had a first wife that died?? I found a John (a mason by trade) & Paulena Heimann on Chippewa Street in Eau Claire 1880 with first child Melia born in Canada in 1865, next child William born in WI. Then on the 1870 Census found the same family listed as John (a mason by trade) and Helen Hyman with first child Amelia born in Canada in 1865, next child William born in WI 1869. They were living with the Rext family, and also living there was a Charles Baker (also a mason by trade) - could be Becker?? There is a tree on Ancestry that I think you will find very helpful - it appears to maybe tie together this Rex(t) family from 1880 Census that John & Ernestine Pauline were living with... looks to me like Ernestine Pauline was maybe related to Anna or her husband, a C. H. Rex(t), and they immigrated with the Beckers on the ship Issac Newton from Hamburg to New York 6 Sep 1860. Looks like Johann Becker was Ernestine Pauline's brother and his wife Caroline & their daughter Pauline (a baby) were there as well as other Becker brother Carl and Ernestine Pauline's mother Johanne Becker. Lived south eastern WI - (Manitowoc, Milwaukee area) and then to Eau Claire Co? That tree is the Dunphy Tree - username dickdunphy Best of luck hunting!
