My grandpa Elbert Benson father was murdered when he was 2 years old. His 12 year old brother at the time name is Clyde(who eventually lived in Frenchburg, KY and had around 15 kids) anyway Clyde talked there mother into giving the two youngest up for adoption. That was my grandfather and twin sister Emma. Were not exactly sure if they kept the benson name or if that was their adopted name. I also know their was Albert and Modd. So if there is any information out ther and your willing to share please e-mail me at [contact link]

My Great-Great Grandparents were married after William H.came home from the Civil War. Williams first wife ( Thurzy Prickett Benson) had passed away. William and Thurzy had two daughterss: Mary and Etta. William and Lousia had nine children: Elvin-William Alva-Rachel I.-George-Laura Ann-Benjamin-James&Thomas (twins), and Elsie. I would like to now about William H's parents. His mother was Katherine Hardmen, and his father name was Charles. They were married in Ripley co Indiana. From what I can Tell Charles passed away, because in the 1850 Boone Co indiana census she was head of house, and her father in law Charles was living with her at the time he was around 7? years old. William H had brothers: George W.-Daniel-and Joseph.
